Look Who's Turnin' ONE!!!

It has been ONE YEAR since Scrapbook Challenges began hosting on what better way to celebrate than with a BLoG HoP???

If you have just happened to stop by and want to join in, the fun starts at Pamela's blog. Now, what would a hop be without a FAB sketch to play with?? For this challenge, you have to create a layout, card, or any other project using this sketch as your guide.......

I decided to create a card, and here is my interpretation.....

So, why don't you join in the fun???? There are great prizes to be won and I know everybody loves prizes :)

Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop will be entered into the drawing to win the It’s Your Day collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch and posts it in the Hop On section gets entered into the drawing to win the Early Bird Collection from Cosmo Cricket.
Everyone who joins the group during the Birthday Bash gets entered to win the Merry Christmas collection from Echo Park Paper Company

Everyone who invites someone to the group during the week, through the "invite" link on main page, gets entered into a drawing for the Road Map collection from October Afternoon.
So...what are you waiting for??? Just "HOP IN" for your chance to win these great prizes!!!

.....and though I hate to say is time for you to hop over to our last stop in the hop.... BRYNN!!

Here is the order, in case you get lost along the way :)

Sharing My Passion

I was recently asked by the owner of Kreatorville Krafts, Keandra, to be a guest designer on her blog. Now, you jump on over to her site and have a look at her fabulous work and the work of her design team! I met Keandra on and every page she posted was both unique and gorgeous. She has an old school feel, and whenever I see her work I think of Motown artists like The Jackson 5 and Stevie Wonder. Trust me, her handmade embellishments are one-of-a-kind and she offers monthly kits that are the perfect combination of the latest in papers, ribbons, embellishments and stickers. She even includes her handmade art to add that perfect finishing touch to your pages and projects. Check her won't be disappointed :)

Well, as a guest designer, I participated in Keandra's Kreatorville tradition of creating an "About Me" page that incorporates a head shot of me on a personalized hand drawn body created by Keandra. So here is my page......

 The background paper was actually black and white, and I used archival-safe markers to colour it in. I had a little trouble coming up with a title, but then I started to think about what phrase embodies the role that every woman plays. I thought about the different roles that we play and how each one is an integral part of who we are. Then Whitney and Chaka Khan came to know the tune....."I'm every woman, it's all in me. Everything you done baby, i'll do it naturally..." So while this page is a reflection of me, it is also a dedication to every woman who juggles kids, work, spouse, dreams, goals, plans, hobbies, and life and still manages to make it. Even if you stumble, or fall, along the way, you are still fabulous; you are EVERY WOMAN :)

So, check back soon when I post the projects that I made with Keandra's October kit. Have a look at the'll want to order one to :)

Happy Birthday Donna!

Last weekend my very good friend celebrated her birthday. Now, this friend of mine is probably the  #1 fan of MouseyFace and has ordered countless products from me. She also has an obsession with personalized items, so she is the perfect friend for someone who has an obsession with making personalized things, me. Well, as a part of her gift, I decided to make her an altered notebook that matches the theme of her career, teaching. It was fun to make and I know that she truly appreciated it.
