October's STB Challenge & a SALE @ SCRAP FRIENDS

October, I still cant believe it, daylight savings starts next Sunday for us here in Tassie, my birthday is this month, Harper will be 10 months old on the 20th of this month and we only have 84 days until Christmas...  
How has that happened so fast!!!!!


Now that blogger has changed to the "new look blogger" I have increased the size of the layout images, so I am wondering if you can leave some feedback as to whether you like this size or the old smaller size?

Head to the bottom of the post for all the details regarding Scrap Friends, 1st Birthday Sale!


This month we have a fantastic challenge and the Creative Team has outdone themselves with some stunnign examples for you, we hope you like the challenge and play along this month!!

Our Sponsors this month are 


SCRAP THERAPY...


We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies.
At www.scraptherapy.com.au you will find a fantastic gallery filled with inspiring ideas, a great community of ladies and an odd guy or two in our online forum. Our Design Team backed up by our Big Sisters offer regular competitions and challenges to help you find your mojo, and a chance to win a shopping voucher or two. Then of course there is the shop where we hope you will find all the latest Linkand greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at lee-anne@scraptherapy.com.au and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can.
Our freight charges for orders up to $25 is $9.00, orders between $25 to $100 stay at $6 and orders over $100 are now free. I love scrapbooking and Danny can whip up a pretty good card, but our true passion is excelling in great customer service, which we hope to continue to do for years to come.

Scrap Therapy have donated a $25.00 voucher.


CHARMS CREATIONS...
A bit about Charms Creations....

I started creating my Lovely Lollipops just for my own scrapbooking pages in about February/March of this year. I saw that Scrapbooking Top 50 had a Craft Market that gives the opportunity to sell your own handmade embellishments, so thought I would make a few packets up and see how it goes! It went really well, so I thought I would make a few more packs up and try my hand selling them on my own personal blog too - my first sale was in April. That went really well too! I've had a sale a month, plus have been a regular at the Craft Market at SBT50 too. I've also set up a Facebook Shop where I have them available as well. I have LOTS of giveaways so to keep updated on those & upcoming sales - make sure you LIKE my Charms Creations Facebook Page & check out my blog Charms Creations!

Each and every embellishment that I have created has been handcut {making them ALL totally unique} and can include a mixture of felt, fabric, lace, hessian, doiley & any other interesting piece of material I can find. They are finished off with a button and cross-stitches that are also as unique to the embellishment! I have started making different styles and sizes of Lovely Lollipops, Luscious Lollipops & Page Runners. Something NEW are my Suns and Clouds too! I have also dabbled in a bit of clay stamping too. So, if you are looking for something totally unique and one of a kind please pop on over and check them out!

I am soooo excited about sponsoring this month - and look forward to seeing what you all create! Have fun & Good Luck on winning the fab prizes up for grabs - including mine of course... heheh!

Charms Creations are offering a $20.00 Voucher.

I really like the bigger pics but they are just a bit too big for my screen. I like to look at the layouts as a whole and not have to scroll a little bit, but overall things look good. (I have a lap-top)

Thanks Sandra!

Wow, all these layouts are absolutely amazing! Such stunning inspiration :-)
I prefer this format a lot! Much easier to see all the little details.

hi.. sorry, I thought I had left a comment before, but I can't find it anywhere..
Just wanted to say that I forgot to add the AUST after my linked entry.. I realised afterwards.. sorry!
And also that I love this challenge!
I love reading, I think its so important to be able to loose oneself in a book and am so glad that both my boys also share my love of books..
Anyway, thanks, Toni..
