2010-12-28 Speed Scrap

Tonight I joined a speed scrap hosted by Stuff to Scrap.

In a period of 60 minutes you get 7 instructions to create your layout. It was my very first speed scrap and I had problems with some steps, but really had fun scrapping. Already looking forward to future speeds scraps!

Won a very nice kit!

DigishopTalk is a really fun and active place to be as a scrapper! Lots of designers are peeking in and sometimes they offer their kits as prizes...

And as it happens, I won one of the kits and I'm really excited. It takes me back a 'few' years when I played the Tetris game for hours on end ;)
