Designing for ScrapThat! {Take That!!} :-D

Hello Everyone!  Happy May!!  Yup I am a bit late!
This week seems to have flashed past in a heartbeat...
Where have I been?!  Well I always take a little breather
once the month end madness is over - I need a little crash!!

Usually my product arrives in the last week of the month, 
due to my location, so it is a mad scramble to get pages
 made!  That results in a studio that looks like a bomb has
 hit it, and when I'm done with sending in my layouts the 
last thing I feel like doing is tidying up!  So I close the
 door ...BREATHE...then come back for more!!

Well while I was busy breathing {!!!} I got a wonderful
offer!  You can read all about it HERE - the good news
is that I was invited to join the Design Team @ ScrapThat!
- a scrapbooking kit club in Canada, which OF COURSE
I'm sure you have all heard of! 

 Have you joined their Ning community? 
 If not you should join HERE as there are monthly 
challenges that you can enter, even if you don't subscribe
 to the kit BUT I do hope that you will think about subscribing, 
as their latest kit is nothing short of SPECTACULAR.  
I'm sure you will agree!!

There is also a FORUM full of interesting and friendly 
chats, so if you have any questions, or just feel like a 
scrappy natter, you should drop on by HERE.  Be
inspired by the gallery HERE and upload and share your
creations.  {You will have to REGISTER on the Ning Site
though} but that is cool, as you get your own page & it's
like a mini-Facebook where you can view all your
participation and uploads in one place.

I am one of FIVE new recruits and there are 3 girls
staying on from previously so altogether a team of 
EIGHT of us altogether.  I will be linking up to the
other girls' blogs soon so you can jump over to them
from here, but for now, click on my fist link to read
up all about them, and while you are there you may 
as well sign up to receive the ScrapThat! blog posts
by e mail - makes it much easier to follow :)

ScrapThat! is also an official DUSTY ATTIC retailer
& restocking right now so that you can shop away to
your heart's content, even if you are not a subscriber! much for cutting down, balance, and all that
other stuff I bang on about when I'm feeling tired & grumpy,
the truth is I just love this hobby too much to turn down
a great opportunity!!
