What a Wonderful Weekend!

On Friday night I attended the Scrapbook Outlet cyber crop & despite a few technical hiccups it was an AWESOME night!!

Heaps of cool challenges - great prizes and lovely ladies to chat to...the best thing was being in my own space with a heater dedicated to my own personal warmth & ALL my goods available to me.

This is the first ever crop I have attended & I think I have found my cropping style :o)

I can't imagine people being able to tolerate my creative mess in a "real" crop environment & I just know I wouldn't remember to take everything with me - either there, or home :o)

So hopefully cyber crops become a regular event in my life. I entered all the challenges, but only won the non-scrapping one - I was the first to paint & upload a pic of my painted toenails LOL. Well if nothing else it shows I can paint, photograph & upload quickly :o)

The challenges we had were:

30 minute card challenge (using something from the kitchen) I couldn't figure out how to get my can tab attached to my card so I scrummaged & found a twist tie. (Thanks)

8x8 Self portrait challenge (k)

Winter Sketch & PP challenge - Use 2 pp's sold at Scrapbook Outlet, draw a sketch & create a LO with a winter theme. (Scarf Time)

Bazzill Challenge - Using Bazzill & items from around the house create a LO (Raven in a Box)

6 items challenge - Create a LO using 3 items from a list of 6: paint, 3 x pp, stitching, buttons, brads, stickers. - I am so proud of myself for this one (toot toot) I used all 6 & made a LO I LOVE! (daddy's angels)

On another note I DID win the monthly layout comp for June at Scrapbook Essentials, so I'm totally thrilled about that - a $20 store I went and added about $200 worth of products to my wishlist & now I just have to narrow it down or find the other $180 LOL!!

The challenge for July has been posted - its a LO of your favourite things, so if you want to win yourself a voucher head on over to the forum & sign up - heaps of other great things going on over there too.

Got a few ideas buzzing around in my head about this one - I think its gonna be FABULOUS!!!

I'll upload some more of my challenge LOs tomorrow, time for bed now :o)

Oh, I haven't stopped the 21 day challenge - I'm just a little behind in the projects...they'll be updated in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled :o)

I loved the online crop: too much fun having all my own stuff around me at home and still having the chance to chat to other scrappers.
