As I'm part of admin on Craftythingz.co.nz I set up an activity from my learning of the OSW's It was put up in stages in a way that everyone had to log in each day to find out the next step, not knowing just where they were heading. Loads of fun! Well from my end it was, but I'm sure the girsl think so too. This is still going on and I'm now waiting to see their creations. In the meantime I did another set and posted up on the site to show in what direction they're heading.

I troll through the message board of Trade-Me, in the craft and hobby section. One of the members put up a scrapbooking challenge. Yay! another chance to add to my own stuff. I used a sketch layout from 52 sketches 52 weeks. This photo of my step-granddaughter was taken on one of my trips back home to Gisborne. Little Miss was quite taken with him. (2006) I did the ribbon pleating with staples, from one of the tuturials on 52 sketches. Lots of tips and hints to be found in there. I love the distress look, one thing I don't have in my stash is distressing ink, so guess what will be on my 'to buy' list :)
I'm always on the lookout for challenges, it's one way of making myself take some time out to do something for my albums. Most of my time is taken up in making emellishment kits to sell on Trade-Me. Which makes my 'pin money' to feed the cuttlebug, who seems to be forever 'hungry'. lol
This challenge was put up a few weeks ago on craftyfingers.nz.co.nz we had to stamp a background paper, why I chose just black, I don't know and once started on the cardmaking, I realised there was too much 'white' space, which reduced the amount of useable template pieces. Oh well, one way of learning the ropes.
