7Dots Studio Challenge, A Giveaway, 3 Sneaks & MORE!!

Hi everyone!  HAPPY Friday!!  I have had such a good week this week!
It has been so stress-free yet productive - EXACTLY the way I love!!
I have created THREE projects this week & can't share any of them
here yet - boohoo!!  But I do love making up these little sneak images,
as I am really terrible at keeping surprises!  You'll need to wait a month
though!!  I know, I am getting super-organised with my deadlines!!!

Last month threw some really curved balls my way then this month I had my Event page
to prepare, which took up every spare minute, so finally I am free again!  Creating with
7Dots Studio Papers & Products is quite simply put - PURE JOY & as a member of
their design team {I only officially start in July} I received a gob-smackingly ginormous
box of their products so can create away to my hearts content & go crazeeey!!

There is another great monthly challenge that started today on the 7Dots Studio blog HERE.
The theme this month is STAMPING {so really there is no theme, just the requirement to use
any 7Dots Studio stamp or stamps on whatever project you like.  They do have some very 
beautiful stamps & the quality is really fantastic.  The stamped images are very crisp! 
 You have until the 20th July to play along so I hope you will join us!!  The selected winner
gets a $50 grab bag of 7Dots Studio goodies sent out to them - what a generous prize!!

As you can see I had a real PLAY here with this one!  It really cheered me up!!
My first attempt at art-journalling!!!  WOW.  ADDICTIVE...oh dear...
We have a HUGE giveaway going on on the SATW Facebook page HERE so
if YOU want the chance to win over $100 worth of dies now is the time to
sign up as an official follower on the Scrap Around The World blog & let
us know you are a follower on our Facebook Giveaway post.  SHARES
would be much appreciated to up your chances!!  

And this little girl turned FOURTEEN today!  So I have been busy baking cakes, wrapping
 presents & organising parties!  She has had a fabulous day & the best news of all is that her 
sister & other brother will be home in a couple days time from university.  YAY.  Home
only really feels like home to me when all 4 chicks are back in the nest :)

I always take a couple of photos ON THE DAY when it is birthday time.  
Recording likes, etc at the time is also fun to look back on in years to come. 
 I do this using the Text tab in Picasa so it really couldn't be any easier. 
 I hope you all have a wonderful creative weekend.  I know I will!  Bye for now!!

Love this post! You sound so happy and upbeat! No fair with the sneak peeks though, I am dying to see the completed pieces. The little you have shown looks awesome!! Thank you so much Helen for leaving such lovely comments on my blog. I really, really appreciate it and, to answer your question about my Mini Albums, I usually make them out of cardstock with just the covers being chipboard. I hope your lovely daughter had a wonderful Birthday!! Hugs ox
