This is my latest creation!
It's all about my scrapbooking space! Each top part of the photo pulls out to reveal journaling all about my space on the reverse side!
I added some stitching details to emphasize the shape of my title and add a stitched border to my page to highlight the square shape of the page.
I loved organizing and taking pictures of my scrapping supplies! You don't realize how many things you accumulate until you have to display them all for photos!
Thanks for looking!!!

As part of my task of being a Design Team member for Creative Crafts and Stickers, we are to come up with a challenge for the monthly contest for the Guest DT member position.
This month there have been some good ones!! Two of them included not using any photos on a layout and using a calendar or part of a calendar in your craetion.
This is what I came up with....
It's titled "Geocaching".
For those of you who don't know what Geocaching is.... here's a generic definition...
"Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a hand held Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches" ~ sounds like "cashes") anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and "treasure", usually toys or trinkets of little monetary value."
Thanks for looking!

This is the message our lovely Jen has posted on the site.....
It is with great excitement that I announce that from Sept 27th to October 3rd, Creative Crafts and Stickers will be holding our first annual Charity Crop.
During this crop, a portion of all sales will be going to the Rich Little Special Care Nursery (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit - NICU) at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital (located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada). As many of you know, in the past two years, my sister has had two premature babies, with the second one born this past May. I am so very impressed with the care and dedication that the Neonatal staff have shown for my sister, brother in law and her premature babies. Children are our future and getting a supportive and loving start is very important.The intent of this crop is to give back to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and allow them to better support other families who need their services.
This NICU Charity Crop will include challenges, online classes, games, prizes and a raffle of donated products. A portion of all sales will be donated to the NICU area, and all orders will receive a goodie bag filled with items from our sponsors. We are also asking that all participants create Congratulations cards for the nurses to give to the families with babies in the NICU. More details about the cards will follow.
In order to make this event a huge success and allow us to make the largest donation possible, we have asked for contributions from manufacturers in the scrapbooking and stamping world. The response has been fabulous!
Donations will become prizes, a part of the raffle and/or sponsor donations in the goodie bag.
To date, we have the following sponsors for the NICU Charity Crop:
Ampersand Art Supply
Michael Miller Memories
Natural Designs in Scrapbooking
Scrapbook and Cards Today
Time to StampTreehouse Designs
I have also been asked to write an article for the December issue of Memory Makers to tell the story of my nieces and how it inspired me to hold this crop.I hope you all will join us for the crop and will consider making a donation to this great cause. I am hoping to go to hospital in the fall to present the cards and a cheque to the NICU staff.Together we can make a difference!
*** I will update the sponsor list above as I get more confirmations back.
Come check us out at http://creativecraftsandstickers.com . We'd love to hear from you! Come and support our cause!

Here's my latest creation!
Spencer, my one year old son, went to visit my parents last weekend and he had lots of fun! He thoroughly enjoyed the little water filled bin that my Mom brought outside for him to play with. His favourite part was climbing inside and getting water poured on him!
I am honoured to be a part of a very talented Design Team for at http://creativecraftsandstickers.com . I am having a ball at creating layouts using the generous monthly kits that are sent to us!
