More Greatness at Bons!

Well I thought I should probably tell you a bit more about myself as a scrapbooker. I have been scrapbooking for over 3 years now but probably only seriously in the last 12 months. Having two boys close together in age prevented me from getting a whole lot done before that, but now, there is no stopping me! Since September I joined the lovely Bon's Scraps forum and haven't looked back. The monthly challenges and cybercrops are just awesome. Its great for me to think outside the square and try different techniques and styles that normally I would be hesitant in trying. Its great, I'm hooked!

Speaking of Bon's you should head over there and register for an awesome prize that is running at the moment.

Registrations will be open till the end of the first round. Forum participation is not a must, but you will get points for it. The more points you have at the end of the comp, the more entries you will have in the random draw prize of a 3 MONTH KIT SUBSCRIPTION of your choice, including postage costs, valued at about $120.
* remember if you cant do some things it only takes one ticket to win... but the more you have the more chance you have of winning. So for this round, all you have to do is- make sure you have registered in the registration post. Copy and paste this section into your reply in this thread.
* make sure you advertise this comp on your blog-
* put your post tally here-
* complete 2 of the october cybercrop challenges, {extra points if you complete all 3} each worth $15 each if you win as well!

So have a go! I am! Would be amazing to win this prize. Bon's kits are magnificant!

Here is a couple of LO's I have done for the October Cybercrop. I was away on the night it started and thought I would never be able to catch up but in the end I ended up completing all three! It must have been the time away from the scrap desk that helped the mojo return!

This was for a sketch challenge. The extra criteria on this one was: stiching, v in the paper and ribbon. Happy how this one has turned out.

The one below is for a colour challenge. The colours are Red and Green with white and black. The extra criteria were, dots, 5 or more photos and a jingle/song for a title. Had fun doing this one as I have never used these colours before.

More to come but wanted to leave you with a very cute photo I took of Finlay today. He is starting to become a real little boy now, loves to get up on to the aeroplane and try and take off...even if it is!

Have a good day!
