Finally some pages to share...

... have had more creativity this last week and have managed 3 LOs - woo hoo!!!! 2 have been done in the last 24 hours!

This one started life as a Sketchy Thursday sketch but doesn't look much like it. These two are based on Jana Eubank sketches.
All 3 LOs were made using Scarlet Lime March kit and I love that they all look so different.
I had a new kit delivered from Scrapbook Circle this week and am looking forward to playing with that next, yummy papers from Cosmo Cricket, MME and October Afternoon and some interesting looking burlap!

Crafty swaps ...

... when I first started scrapbooking I discovered craft swaps on UK Scrappers and joined in with a few. They tended to be stash related - buy 100 buttons, sort in to 10 bags, send off, receive 10 assorted bags back. After awhile the novelty of receiving new stash wore off as the selections could be pretty random!

During a blog hop this morning I found myself on Beautiful Things by Claire who is offering to host a handmade craft swap. This is far more appealing as you get to make something personal for your swap partner. If you want to play along you've got until tomorrow to sign up, so go check out the details.

Butterfly Crafts March Challenges ...

... there's been a change to the style of challenges over at Butterfly Crafts. Each month there will be a visual and a written challenge.

The visual this month posted on the 1st was a sketch and so here's my take.
The written challenge, posted on the 15th, was to use at least 1 of the following items:
Polka dots
Gingham Ribbon
Scalloped edge

The latest Scarlet Lime kit arrived this morning and was perfect for this - I've managed 6 from the list!

I also made use of a PencilLines sketch.

... no doubt I'm late to the party with tumblr!! Have spotted more and more tumblr accounts around and after looking into it I've set up two!!

Beautifullily's Ramblings is for the general loveliness I spot around cyberspace
Beautifullily's Inspiration is for sketches I'd like to try out and LOs I find inspiring.

I use Google Reader quite heavily and tag loads of posts, but I'm finding that it easier to see things at a glance in tumblr. I also have a little button on my toolbar so I can quickly save photos I like.

Let me know if you're tumblr-ing!!!
