My Scrapbook Nook

I've found a new scrappy place to hang out! Since I've had such a hard time getting on the CKMB, I've been looking for somewhere else to go. I've been at 2Peas but I spend more time in the Photography forum over there. Yesterday, I read a blog post by Leah Killian. She's the DT manager for The Scrapbook Nook's kit club. They are having a Scrap-off for a 6 month post on their design team and I figured that this contest was a great way for me to meet a new scrapbook forum. :)

The contest consists of weekly challenges and a bunch of mini-challenges. So far I've completed two. First, I visited 15 blogs of Scrapbook Nook members and commented on them. This was a cool challenge. They have a lot of foreign members and it was cool to see all of their blogs. I visited a lot of Swedish blogs and got to see a lot of eye candy!
The second challenge was to scraplift a DT members layout. I chose Leah because I loved a layout that she'd recently posted on her blog. It's about her two month old little man. Mine is called Our sweet baby Audrey. I do have journaling to do on it but my white pen is running out of juice. It's still okay for dots and faux stitching but writing on textured cardstock is out of the question for now! LOL!

Cardstock~American Crafts. Patterned Paper~Basic Grey Urban Prairie. Buttons~Basic Grey Urban Prairie. Cardstock Stickers~Basic Grey Urban Prairie. Ribbon~Making Memories. Small Letter Stickers~Making Memories. Green Letter Stickers~American Crafts. Flower~Bazzill. Pen~Signo Uniball

I've also decided to start entering some of the challenges over at 2Peas and will try to create an online gallery there, too. Here's a card I made for the flower challenge by the Garden Girls. It is conveniently going to be one of my Mother's Day cards, too! LOL! I've got two more made but not photographed yet.

That LO is too cute! I too am looking for a new online hang out. I'm a bit too intimidated by 2peas though.

I have a card for you but I don't have your new address. Email me eh?
