Where does the time go??....

I will never get an answer to that question!
I know one thing is for sure
I need some serious time management lessons
especially for all things scrappy and creative!
My family/ personal life seems to be on track 
its the other side that does not get the same amount of attention from me!

As you may or may not know
I run 
(with the help of my design team)
a challenge blog called 

it is my baby and I have watched it grow
for 2 years now
I have  a very talented  creative team
and have had very talented ladies create for me in the past..

It is a busy challenge blog with something happening at least once a week

We have 2 card challenges and 2 layout challenges
 plus an inspirational project every month

So far 2 challenges have gone live for the month of February
here is my layout for the 1st
the challenge is favourite of mine
and a popular one

your challenge is to create a layout with 
(your photo does not have to be about the snow)
the challenge is to be creative with snowflakes!

here is my take on the challenge
I went crazy with coarse modelling paste 
trying to get the same effect as the snow in the photo

here are some close ups

The snow flakes were cut with the cameo and sprinkled with glitter
which of course does not show up in the photo
the film strip was also cut with the cameo

I did not want to overload the layout with embellishments as I wanted the texture of the 
 modelling paste to be in focus

head on over to the blog and see what the design team have created!

the second challenge is our card challenge
my super talented team have created 
Valentines day cards
without the colour 
there cards are inspirational
