The Draw will take place tomorrow (1st November). I have allocated numbers to those who have entered so far. The number of entrants hasn't been very high this time, so I will look to see whether I can tempt more people to join in next time by offering something which has a wider appeal.
Some followers have entered more reviews into the draw but, unfortunately, I cannot count them as the rules state - 1 review per day!
You can find a list of entrants at the end of the page - good luck to all who have entered.

Everyone will have their favourite but all the designs are really fabulous and of course each patterned paper range co-ordinates (so no problems matching colours!).
Remember there is still time to get your reviews done (for extra chances in the draw for the Blog Candy) - it ends on 31st October.

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket - Honey Pie, and have been around for a while now but are lovely 'girlie' papers - so fresh! I love the colours of pink and green together. I have had to photograph the layouts as I tried the scanner but it wasn't playing today! The title was cut from one of the papers that had words all over it (so helpful when looking for different ways to add titles to your layouts). For the layout itself, I just cut a circle (using a saucer as a template) and then cut 1.5" circles on the cricut to make the 'flower' shape.
I have used this layout several times on 12" x 12" layouts, so had to downsize this for these 8" x 8" layouts. I rounded the photo to fit the large centre circle and just added the chipboard flower and heart to finish. This second layout was simpler to do as I just used what was left over from the previous layout. This time I made a larger chipboard flower, cut a circle of patterned paper for the centre and added some bling (Prima pearl). The letter 'L' is a die-cut letter that goes with the papers.I hope the learners enjoy doing these layouts as it is fun to make your own chipboard embellishments rather than buying them.
I am receiving a delivery of the new Glitz papers on Friday - there will be some 'special offers' on full sets of papers. Check the website on Friday for further details!

We had cake (some were very good and had Weight Watchers cake) but apparently they tasted just as good! I say apparently because my philosophy on cake is - the naughtier the better (calorific value naughty that is!).
I asked members if they wanted to share their layouts on the blog and they were happy to do so. So next time I will photograph the finished ones and post them on the blog for you all to see.

These layouts were designed for 'newbies' to scrapbooking and therefore are quite simple (but effective) in design.

The weather was awful but didn't deter the crafters (we are made of sturdy stuff!). It is nice to meet up with fellow scrappers as a lot of people who attend these shows are cardmakers.
I didn't take any photo's this time but I do have some more 8" x 8" scrapbook layouts to post next week.
