And now for some fish....... er scrapping LOL

Sorry I was being silly *smile*

So I have some pretty BIG NEWS!!! I am so pleased to announce that the wonderful, talented and enthusiastic Natalie Bird is now the proud owner of Designs in Digital Yippeeeee!!!! She is so excited and is totally committed to making DID a stand-out success! I plan to help her in my own small way as much as I can! Seriously, I have been a member of DID ever since I first stumbled onto digi-scrapping back in 2006 and it has always been a friendly, welcoming place, so I can assure you that when the opportunity came up to become more involved in the workings of the site I jumped at the chance - so there you have it - I am now Odd Job Girl at DID and I couldn't be happier! Oh and check out the new banner, isn't it BEAUTIFUL!!!


So one of my first big jobs was to host a Challenge LOL! So if you are feeling in the need for some major mojo moving come on over to DID and have a go at my Do-Over Challenge. We are taking out our old LOs, dusting off the cobwebs and old fashioned papers and giving them an extreme makeover hahahaha. Here are the ones that I did for the challenge (don't worry I can't win LOL)

Eeeek this BEFORE LO is really quite wrong on so many levels but I just love the photo! it was definitely in need of a do-over. This was a very, very early days LO and I wonder now what ever was I thinking LOL - I do wish I could remember whose papers these are so I could credit them but this LO has never been put in any gallery and the kit has been removed from my computer, and so if they are yours I'm very sorry :)


This is the AFTER LO, I went for a fantasy theme this time, I don't think I even knew what a fantasy theme WAS when I did the original LOL! Credits as always can be found here!

I'm very excited to be hosting my first challenge and I hope that everyone enjoys it - oh and btw there is a $5.00 coupon to be given away to a randomly drawn winner and it MIGHT be you if you come on over LOL!


I have really been learning a lot though, I can do an email newsletter now (not terribly well but not bad), I have learnt how to make blinkies (check it out over there!), and I have been doing a lot of posting ROFL! in amongst all that I have tried to do a couple of DID challenges too and so I do have some LOs to post here - finally!

This is my LO for the great These Days Challenge that is being run by the lovely Heathermum - it will be run each month for a year so that at the end you will have a great monument of the year just gone.

And this is my LO for a blog challenge that was up on the DID blog that was lots of fun! I really like how this turned out!

Oh and this is a LO that I did with Natalie's new kit called It's Love - I just adore the colours! You can pick up this gorgeous kit right here

Well I THINK that is all the scrapping news I have for you all so now I'm off to try to catch up with my Project 365 LOL - *yawn* - well ....maybe tomorrow! Gosh I talked a lot tonight!

Amanda, what a fabulous challenge you've put up. I look at some of my very first layouts and some along the way and think, well quite frankly, what was I thinking? I guess I wasn't. I was so excited that something happened every time I pushed a button and I over shadowed and my gosh, I think I bevilled every bit of writing I did, LOL. Congrats to Natalie, and yourself chicky.

The makeover is absolutely fabulous Amanda and congrats on your 'odd job' at DID!!! My layouts only go back a couple of months so I don't think I've learned enough to do any makeovers yet lol!!!
