Lindy's Stamp Gang July Colour Challenge! A new Video Tutorial, & a couple of Publications in Scrap 365!!




I was so excited to see that Lindy's Stamp Gang is having a Design Team Call HERE that I decided to enter their latest colour challenge for July HERE as this was a requirement.

I made a video tutorial to accompany this layout & you can find it on my You Tube Channel HERE.  

Unfortunately it is still loading right now {and has been for the last 12 hours!}.  It takes a couple of days to load from here & I started yesterday but it got stuck at 1% overnight so I had to restart it again today. {We are on 22% now - yippee!!}

Anyways I am REALLY EXCITED for it to go up! 

 I know I have a long way to go as it's only my 2nd video tutorial but I got the hang of it this time & am working on improving my lighting & set up for future.  

I really enjoyed editing it & think it's okay for a video newbie :)

I've also been busy with some "secret squirrel" scrapbooking for Scrap 365 Magazine this week!  You can see my 2 new layouts in their next issue - October/November - coming up.  I also have a couple of layouts in their current issue too so look out for those in the issue below!!


So it's been a crazy-busy week as it's also time for Reveal 4 tomorrow at Scrap Around The World, my new challenge blog! 
{I correlated the votes & compiled the Winners' Post earlier this week} so it's all going on!! - Busy, busy but that's how I roll...

Thanks for popping in to take a peek & say HI!
