Paula's March Challenge
March marks the arrival of autumn...& what a difference a day can make!
We have had such hot weather lately, this is such a huge change. Though
I know I'm certainly looking forward to the cooler weather. The shops are
already fully stocked with new season clothes & by the looks of it...it's a lot
of black & white with silver & bling.
For this months challenge I would like to see...
1. A predominantly black layout with white & a colour of
your choice.
2. Silver
3. Bling

To see more of Paula's layout be sure to check out the Forum

Michelle Winston this month shares with us the answer to that constantly asked question…
                                                                I’ve Made a Layout, Now What?
If you’re anything like me, the answer to this question is -
stuff it in a pizza box and start a new one! Problem is, (and
I’m sure some of you can relate), pretty soon, the pizza
boxes are full and your layouts are getting a bit squished,
and you really don’t know which box houses what layouts!
So this month, following on from January’s article on
storage / organisers, I thought I’d take a look at storing your
layouts.
Now don’t get me wrong, pizza boxes are fine layout
storage, and I have relied on them for quite some time, but
if you really want to look after your layouts, then albums are the go! But what albums? How many
                                   albums? What order should my layouts be in? What are the tips
                                   and tricks, and so on…

                                     When buying albums, there are a few things to consider. Be sure
                                     to read the full article here in the forum
                                      http://www.foreveralways.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?p=9831
                                                                     3#98313

                                              Including tips form the girls about what not to do…..

Kylene Hickey has got my sketching juices going again this month, with our MONTHLY
SKETCH CHALLENGE, not sure if it was the sketch or the older photos that got me scrapping
as soon as I received Kye’s layout and created this simple sketch….hope it does the same for you
this month….happy scrapping.
