Lots to share ...and an announcement!!

Hello folks!! Grab yourself a cuppa I've got lots to share with you.  I haven't been able to blog much as I've been busy busy creating.  So, without further ado, here are a couple of my crafty makes.
I made this layout of My Boy Ben for the current Scrapology challenge.  There is a fantastic page by Karola Witczak to scraplift and oodles of inspiration from my fellow Design team members.  
The papers have been in my stash mountain for years, I'm so pleased I've used them.  The circle frames are chipboard that I have inked.  I made the cute little aliens using my Cricut and added a finishing touch with some gems and a ribbon.

Over on the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog there is a great 'Flower Power' challenge and lots of beautiful cards made by the DT for your perusal.
 I decided to make a card using an image from the Jane Shasky CDrom.  I had so much fun making the decoupage.... I'm one of those weird people that actually likes cutting out.  If you click on one of the pictures to enlarge it you'll see just how much glitter I encrusted the flowers in.  I'm happy to report that the card was for my Mother-in-law and she loved it.
It's fanfare time Toot Toot.... (I'm sure you've guessed from the banner)  I am absolutely thrilled to announce that the lovely Sam Poole has invited me to be on her very first Creative Studios Design Team!!  and what a team... Sam Poole, Suzee Murphy, Jacqui Dennis and little ol' me.
Sam has tonnes of crafty gorgeousness in her shop and has just launched her new stamp range I have had a play with the new stamps and they are truly creative and fun, I know you'll love them. I'll share my creations soon.  So hop on over and check out Sam's stunning designs.
If you've made it to the end of this post.... I salute you!
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx
