Queens birthday long weekend... yippee!!!

Don't you just love a long weekend? I do and it's lunch time and I am still in my PJ's.... and loving it...
It's been a busy couple of weeks balancing work, business and doctors appointments but we got through our 1st week and only 5 more weeks to get through with appointments and hopefully I can get a bit of normality back. Im hoping to take some holidays in August after the rush and chaos of the financial year so fingers crossed it all goes as planned. I haven't had a holiday in 4 years so really need 1 so I can kick back and relax. I really need to do a spring clean too so might take an extra week to plod around the house and clean out cupboards etc... Look out QLD cos I'm coming...
This weekend we are running our June cybercrop. The theme this month is MONOCHROMATIC. I have had a ball doing this crop and have completed all my challenges already which is a 1st for me in a very long time. There was 4 rounds, sketch, card, OTP and layout. The crop doesnt close until Friday so why not pop in here and check out the challenges for your chance to win a voucher.
Here are my 4 attempts. I chose BROWN to be my colour of attack.

1st is Hetty's layout challange - use an untraditional item - I used hesshian (sp?)
2nd is the sketch layout
3rd is Tracy's OTP gift box and
4th is Sharon's card using a flight animal and metal/bling.

A big Congrats to Anthea for winning the voucher for her entry for May sketch competition. Happy shopping Anthea and thanks to my mystery judge. Glad it was you deciding and not me...

OHHH and don't forget, I have paint and ink on special until Monday. 20% off already reduced prices.

So lets see, what's going on at SC. Well I have announced that I am in search of a Designer Team. More details soon so make sure you keep popping in for closing dates and requirements.

A voucher give away for new recruits and those who introduce them..... Wouldn't you like some free Scrapping goodies? Check it out here for more details.

June sketch is in the gallery and closes 30 June as well as the sign up for the July secret challenge. Cost you nothing except your imagination so why not join in for a little bit of fun.

I am also introducing "layout of the week". Each Monday I will select a random layout/OTP/ card from the gallery to be spotlighted. If your design is selected, I will post you a RAK for your efforts. All you have to do is scrap and uplaod in the gallery. Simple!!

I also have had feedback about the lack of comments left in the gallery, and some people arent uploading for this reason. Can I just say I appreciate every bodies time and effort and I love seeing your work in the gallery. I, like 99% of you love comments and feedback and try my hardest to comment on everybodies work. I know sometimes this is hard but I also believe do to others as you would want done to you. I guess it's the same as blogs. I do try and pop in at least once a week to read your blogs and when I read 99% of the time i will leave a comment. Same rule in my opininon. After all, we are all cyber sisters all here for the same reasons.... So as my wacky brother would say "WHERE"S THE LOVE?"

Next month I will run a blog comp... more details soon but let me tell you this involves you all and is going to be a bit of fun..... hehehe Im laughing already.

As for the gallery, I will make up a pack and award the person who I believe "SHARES THE LOVE" and leaves positive comments. You have until 30 June to "share the love" so come on, lets make our sisters smile.

Well I think I have bombarded you with enough at the moment so until next time, stay safe and keep on scrapping.
