Meet the New GDT's

 We are so lucky to have 3 new Guest Designers joining us for challenges in October and November!


First off let me introduce you to Ashley!


Hello, I’m so excited to be guest designing! I’ve been scrapbooking since I was 16 - before scrapbooking was this hobby that it is now! I’be been married for two years & we have two dogs. I also love to read, work in the garden, & take beach vacations.



Next up we have Monique!


I am a 51yo single mother of a 17yo handsome teen and 2 fur babies.  I live in Columbia Maryland USA. I am sweet (by nature), ethnic (by design), and blessed (by God).  I am a paper crafter who loves to make scrapbook layouts, cards, paper purses, loaded envelopes, loaded hoops, tags, tag flips, pocketletters, and etc.  I am a published crafter and published poet. 


And last but not least, Becca!


My crafting, art, and sewing 'bug' started back at age 9 when I joined 4-H club. The paper-crafting blog 'bug' started around 2010 after participating in some message boards for a website that morphed into jumping on the 'blog' train! And through the highs and lows, crafting has been a great stress reliever for me. You can find me at Becca's Heart for Creativity.



We are so happy to have these lovely and talented ladies joining us for the next couple months to help inspire and encourage you as you create.


Welcome aboard ladies!!

I visited Floriade in Canberra and found these giant copper coloured avocados. This range of autumn photos suited the photo.



Some fall photos in Gatineau Park, Quebec. 


Amanda

In Canada our Thanksgiving holiday is in the fall so I used some lovely fall colors to scrap these photos of our son on his first Thanksgiving!



Doreen
My September 2020 Project Life Pages pretty much scream Fall!


For the challenge, I experimented with slim line cards, as well as creating a digital scene cards and created the scene below using layering techniques in Word.




When I think of Fall, I think of Halloween...it is my favorite holiday!  So I took the opportunity to scrap my favorite moment from last year's Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party...

#406 Mid challenge reminder

 Hey there everyone!


Just popping in to remind you of our challenge right now with our SPORTS theme!  It can be any project that has a sports-y feel to it!


I also wanted to share some DT projects that for some reason blogger wouldn't let us upload to the original post but are just too awesome not to share!



Helen



I have lots of sports pictures to scrap but my son's 8th birthday is coming up and he wanted to go bowling so I made these quickly to use as his birthday invitations. With our COVID world he's just inviting his 3 closest friends so I didn't need many - of course I had to make one to keep so I can include it when I scrap the event!




For this challenge, I tried a box card.  This particular card uses up scraps, and when completed folds to fit an A2 envelope.






 Here's the link for the challenge, so please play along!  We can't wait to see what you create!

#406 Sports

COVID-19 cancels fall sports at post-secondary level in Ontario |  StCatharinesStandard.ca
Are you ready for this week's challenge???? Show us your SPORTS!

There are too many different kinds of sports to name so show us the ones that are near and dear to your heart!  Here in Canada, of course, Hockey reigns supreme but we also love our football and lacrosse....what one are you wanting to highlight this challenge?

Check out the DT!

                       Image may contain: text that says 'IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY... have a ball! WOW! Deanne Saunders 2020'

My hubby loves to FISH. 

 




This challenge got me going through old photos and so I ended up with this LO...my oldest at his first soccer game and then his last...bittersweet to say the least...



My daughter played tee-ball when she was younger and
I have never scrapped any photos of that time.
This challenge was the perfect motivation!
Unfortunately I didn't have tee-ball themed items but baseball is close enough!
