If you’re here for my Challenge Me Happy Hoopla challenge – please go here.

So. Life have been crazy busy. I’m sure it has for you too. There has not been a lot of time for blogging. Well, I’m sure there has actually, I’ve just done something else instead. Like procrastinating. Or working. Or creating something new. Or watched TV. Or done house work. Or been too sick to care. Same as you I’m sure.

I have so much to share though, so it was time for an update – someone told me. 🙂

So here goes. Not a lot of words needed, here’s the update on my latest creativity:


For 2Crafty Chipboard:







For D-Lish Scraps:



For Scrappin’ Patch:



And then I’ve had the absolute honour to be the DT for June over at Stuck?! Sketches. Fabulous sketches and an amazing team. There’s still some time to get your entry in for the June 15th sketch! Here are my examples for June:




And that’s it! For now. See you later – with more creativity!

Challenge Me Happy One Year Anniversary HOOPLA!

Posted by swewi on June 15, 2012

Welcome to the Challenge Me Happy One Year Anniversary HOOPLA!!!

It’s hard to believe, but Challenge Me Happy has been dishing out fortnightly challenges for a year today. This is something to CELEBRATE of course, and we hope you want to celebrate with us!!

You will have SEVEN challenges to complete, in FOUR weeks. You can participate in however many challenges you want, and there are prizes to win in EACH challenge.

 Aaaaand – something we are VERY excited about – if you upload a project to EACH of the seven challenges, you will be in the DRAW to win a BIG SHOT machine + two Tim Holtz dies. This has been generously sponsored by Adrienne at Scrappin’ Patch  – she is one amazing lady!

So – how does it work?

Each Challenge Me Happy designer is presenting their challenge in detail on their blog (see list below). You will also find all links on the Challenge Me Happy blog – and the inspiration project to go with it. Each designer is offering a prize for their challenge – the winner will be chosen by vote. Each designer will ALSO draw a RAK amongst the uploaded projects.

Upload ALL your projects to the “inlinkz” page at the bottom of the hoopla post on the Challenge Me Happy blog. Please name your project with YOUR name AND the name of the designer who’s challenge you have interpreted. Upload your project before midnight 15 July to be in to win!

Here is the list to all of the design team blogs:
