Purple Pumpkin DT Call....

Sadly my time is up at Purple Pumpkin and won't be staying on as I just haven't had any time to scrap as lately. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Sam and her Mum and you too could be part of this fabulous team by applying for the new DT.

All you have to do is.....

Email the following to purplepumpkincrafts@hotmail.com

- 3 of your favourite layouts, cards or off the page projects, which show how you use handmade embellishments (especially our buttons). If you haven't had a chance to use Purple Pumpkin embellishments before, you can still apply. We know they can be a bit hard to get hold of sometimes ;)

- A brief paragraph about yourself, including your name and address, details of any design teams you are on (or have previously been on) and a link to your blog.

Design team members will be appointed for a period of 6 months, and in that time you will receive plenty of product to work with. As a design team member you will be required to incorporate Purple Pumpkin embellishments on your projects where ever you can, and promote them on your blog. You will also be required to write 3-4 blog posts per month on the PP blog to showcase your work.

International applicants are welcome to apply.

Applications need to be in by the 30th of September (next Friday), and the new design team will be announced on Monday the 3rd of October.

Good Luck!

Playing Catchup

I have been SUPER busy and no time whatsoever for blogging or even scrapping for that matter:(

BUT i do have a couple of pages from last month that I never shared.

First up, I finally got a chance to play along at The Color Room and the colour palette was gorgeous!!

Here is what I created....

and I don't think I have shared August's sketch at Anna's Craft Cupboard yet?? Just checked and I even forgot to upload it to the gallery:(
Here it is anyways..

So that's about it.....hoping to get stuck into a couple of pages over the weekend, that's if everything goes to plan!

Cheers xx
