The Pierian Spring

The end of April saw me say goodbye to my time as a Design Team Member at It's always sad to leave something so special behind. I had been on the boards of long before I came to be on the DT, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time designing for them. Heike and the team are just lovely and I'm grateful for the chance to get to know them all a little better.

But just as my time was up at, another opportunity came knocking at my door. You may have noticed in my sidebar, or you may have seen the announcement.... but I now have the pleasure of saying that I am on the very first Designer Team for Scrap Friends!! I'm so excited!

Now that the first team has been assembled we are going to begin not one but two monthly challenges. On the 1st of the month will be a sketch challenge called "The Peirian Spring", and on the 15th a colour-combo challenge will be issued which is called "Yammy Scrap". Don't you just love those names?!

The sketch you see above is the very first Pierian Spring challenge, and this is the page I created for it. I was so inspired just by the sketch itself... I love this style! And I think it's going to continue to bring out the best in me, I was quite happy with how my first page turned out.

I got nice and messy on here! Washi tape, Gesso, Glimmermist.. I even cracked out some stamps.... it's been too long :-)

I want to let you in on one of THE BEST things about being on the Design Team for this new store and that's the products they offer. Along with all the big brand names you know and love already (I'm talking Crate Paper, Webster's, Tim Holtz, Cosmo Cricket, Prima and loads more) but which you can get pretty much anywhere, Scrap Friends offer a huge range of hard-to-get international brands such as ICC, Poland, The ScrapCake, Claudine Helmuth, Stanislaus and I could go on and on!

There's just so much on my 'must get' list that I didn't know where to start! In the end I've settled for a combination of Teresa Collins and ICC for this page about My Little Moodles. Now that Munchy is at school every day it offers The Man and Moodles quality time together one-on-one. Except that on some days Moodles just wanders around looking for her sister and calling out her name. It breaks my heart a little, but at least I know she loves her Bebesh (that's what she calls Munchy!)

And if I haven't convinced you already to go over and check out what Scrap Friends has to offer, then take a look at this prize you'll win for the Pierian Spring challenge! Geez.... I might just set up a fake blog just so I could enter this myself ;-) You've got until the end of the month to get your entries in, but why wait?
