Welcome to Scrapbook Dreamers 'Dream You're a ScrapStar' Contest!

I have covered each Design Team member with Dream dust which has allowed me to invade their dreams to find out what they truly dream about....and I have found out some fabulous and useful bits of scrappy goodness! Boy do they dream about scrapbooking! So I thought "what would I do with all this awesome info?" Why I thought I would host a contest! Do you dream about being a scrap star? If you do, this contest is for you....

Here is all the info!

1) Each Monday (by 5 pm) starting September 15th I will post 5 items that two of the design team have dreamt about (10 total) and a mystery item (theme, technique etc) that have really been on their minds. You MUST create a layout using 5 of these items AND the mystery item and post it in the 'Dream You're a Scrap Star' folder in the gallery before that Saturday at noon.

2) the design team will then vote and the winners will go onto the next round. The advancing members will be posted on Monday along with the next sets of 'dream items'

3) all layouts must be NEW and created for this contest and must not be posted in any other galleries until the contest is over. Please include a list of materials used when uploading into the gallery

4) This is a 5-week Contest/Challenge & requires your commitment to complete each challenge. If you do not or cannot complete a challenge, you will be disqualified.

5) All questions or concerns should be submitted to me via PM

Round #3

We had to scrap trends that were HOT or we like. The trends I thought were hot was bubble wrap stamping technique, bling, 3-D dimensions and cut work. I sad to say this LO didn't get me the Design Team over at The Mosy Scrapper. But I did get a Guest Design Team Spot and I'm thrilled cause it will be very first GDT ever. My spot will be for the month of February 2009. Woohooo thanks Christa and April for the wonderful opportunity.

Round ONE

I'm working my butt off for another design team over at The Mosy Scrapper. Here's my layout that got me onto round #2. Tomorrow I will share that project with you all.

Journaling says:

The kids both started
the summer out by
signing up for coach
pitch and softball
this year. My daughter
had to quit ball after two
games because she fell
off her horse and
broke her arm. So for
the month of June my
son played ball and they
both went to summer
school. They got to do
several activities through
the summer project. My
daughter got to go
fishing with her 6th
grade class.
I've been keeping busy
with keeping the garden,
canning and babysitting.
Two of the hottest jobs is
the keeping garden and
canning what I get out
of the garden.
When I'm not busy with
that I take the kids
to the city pool once a week
for about 3 1/2 hours.
I'm teaching my youngest
to swim. He's coming along
pretty good.
