Mix It Up Challenge Blog

Hey again,

Last week I applied to be on the DT for Mix It Up Challenges – and I am SO excited to reveal to you right now that I have made the team!  WHOOP!!!  I shed a few tears and floated around like a LOON the rest of the day!

While I don’t have anything prepared as yet (it goes live on 01 May), I can tell you that this is a VERY exciting challenge site; the world is basically your oyster in terms of what you can make for us.  The challenge runs for a full month – so from the first day to the last day of every month.  On the 5th, winners will be announced.  AND you can enter as many times as you like – just as long as each submission is something different.

Although there are no prizes, you will earn a badge (or two or three!) to put up on your very own blog – bragging rights? Yes please!

So add our blog to your list – and look out for our very first challenge which will go live on the first of May!!!

Always Laugh Always Smile

Hi guys!

First day of a two week school holiday – and I’m SO happy to still be in my jarmies, at 08:15!!  Much to do this week though, as we are going away for a little over a week at the crack of dawn on Saturday!

Anyway, today I want to share the latest case file over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.  This one is a major case file and as such, also includes a lovely sketch, done by Em of The Nifty Pixel.

Here is the single page LO I made for this case:

Scheme : all there

Evidence : stripes, flowers, wood, frames, triangle, circular element

Testimony : Prompt idea – what was your funniest moment

We need to laugh at ourselves; we really do.  Even in those incredibly embarrassing moments.  A few weeks back, I was walking around a clothing store when suddenly I bumped into someone, I turned to apologise profusely, until I realised I was apologising to a mannequin.  No one saw it happen – but a few heads turned when I burst out into the most raucous laugh.  It was one of those ‘you had to be there’ moments.  Life is very short; how boring it would be if we didn’t laugh every single day.
