Forum Siggie Templates

Today Scrappin Addict Designs released a forum sigs template set!

I've had the pleasure to scrap a siggie using a siggie template and I am so proud of the result. At first I was apprehensive to create siggies and couldn't go beyond putting four letters next to each other, but with the template I created an amazing siggie. Sometimes I still can't believe that I've actually created it myself. All thanks to Anna's siggie templates!!

* The siggie has been reduced in size to fit this blog and is not linked *


Hope you like it, enjoy and know that I always appreciate feeback!

A Blast From The Past....

As "Sugar Plum" I am hosting the Blast From the Past challenge this month. It will be fun seeing lots of layouts and I invite you all to join!

Challenge
Normally in the “Blast From The Past” challenge you have to use a picture of over a year old, but not everyone has all their pictures digitalized yet. Thus I am giving the challenge a small twist by giving you a choice. Either you scrap a page using an “old” picture or you give your page and “old” look. Scrap the forgotten moments and the choice is all yours, of course!!

This is the layout I scrapped for the challenge...


My Everything


Credit
Kit: You Make Me Happy by Designs by Sweet Mesquite

You really should join in as you will get a great participation prize: a 2 template pack by the featured designer, Sweet Mesquite!! And wait, that isn't all you can win by just scrapping and playing along as you will get a mini kit with the template pack, if you participate in 3 or more challenges this month. Plus one - or maybe three - lucky winner will receive the Grand Prize: a ONE WEEK PASS to her shoppe to download anything they'd like!!

So don't miss out and play along!

Hope to see you all at Polka Dot Plum!!
