Cybercrop layouts + some interesting news!

Firstly, on Saturday I did Karen's class over at CIS and I the results!! The focus was on distressing and this what I walked away from the class with:

These cute little canvases are 15cms squared and they turned out great. I loved doing all that sanding/inking and crumpling. Great class Karen!!!! :D

Secondly, Ive partially finished the challenges from this weekends cybercrop at Scrapbooking Top 50. Im gonna finish the last one tomorrow, but these are the challenges Ive done:

This was a layout that had to be purple and white, with a small amount of green. I used my new journalling stamps by Lil Davis! How cool are they!!! Also, the background is an old sheet of chatterbox I ripped up then stitched to my layout.

This next layout was a sketch challenge that had to be monochromatic. Its a simple layout but I love it anyways cos its got my two gorgeous boys in it :)

And in some VERY interesting news I applied for a Guest DT position at Blumars the other day and I got a phone call today from Maria and she has offered me a FullTime DT position!!! So I was really stoked about that.

Itll be interesting though because tomorrow the winner of the CIS DT competition is going to be announced and Im a finalist there.

But the good thing is that Jolene from CIS said that at the moment the DT position would be very small and would only involve 1 layout a month. So this means I can definitely fit these two commitments in along with my normal Scrapbooking Company commitment (that IS if I get into CIS .... There is alot of competition there!!!).

Wow I think ill be busy!!!! But ill love it :D I scrap too much! So ill definitely fit them all in.

Enjoy the last few hours left of the ultra-long weekend. :)
