Our next Cyber Crop will be on during the last weekend of March 2009. There will be four challenges, which are created by two of our Design Team members, Melissa (that's ME!) and Suse. The challenges will be posted on our forum on Thursday March 26, 2009.
All the layouts have to be uploaded in our Cyber Crop Gallery by midnight on Monday March 31, 2009. Note: This runs to South Australian time (GMT +9.30)
Challenges will be posted to our forum on Thursday evening and you have until Monday night midnight to upload your creations to our gallery to be in the running for the prizes.
Hope you can drop by and say hello! (from Jo)
My completed entry for Ingeborg's competition over at Heaven-Sent - Sketch challenge. These are some beautiful roses from the rose garden in the Botanical gardens in Mildura.
Last but by no means least is the layout I did in the "Get Challenged Now" forum at Scrapwitch. My challenge was to use star cut-outs - at least seven, the colours orange and blue and handstitching.
I really enjoyed doing this one but I kind of scraplifted a layout from an old Stampin' Up catalogue (2007?) and used rubons and doodling to achieve my desired result.
Have a great scrapping weekend all!

On Sunday was the lovely Dawn Stan, Lead Ambassador for Fiskars, 40th birthday. The demonstrators and Ambassadors around Australia and New Zealand we asked to join in the fun and make a card for Dawn to be placed on the Fiskars blog on the day. Above is my example using the beautiful Heidi Grace, Urban Acres papers and sticker. I have used the victorian circle border punch and some Kaisercraft bling with Prima flowers to finish it off. I hope Dawn like my efforts.
Don't forget those monthly challenges at Heaven-Sent also. Scrapping the man in your life, a sketch challenge and a layout with rectangular papers but non-rectangular/square photos. Put your thinking caps on for those.

Scrapbooking Competitions March 2009 over at Heaven-Sent
This month we have three different scrapbooking and card making competitions at Heaven-Sent Scrapbooking. Please read all about our March 2009 competitions on our forum! The winner of each competition will receive a mystery scrapbooking pack valued at $ 30.00!
Here are some more details:
- Brigitte’s Competition: Most layouts today seem to feature square or rectangular photos and shapes cut out of paper. In this challenge, let’s do the reverse – have only square or rectangular shapes from our papers and cut shapes out of our photos. (Please note: circles, ovals, stars etc. all count as ‘shapes’). Cardmakers: try to create a card with papers in square / rectangular shapes and your embellishments in different shapes.
- Melanie’s Competition: Create a layout of a man in your life and what he means to you. We so often forget the people behind the scenes!!! Cardmakers: create a card for a man in your life.
- Ingeborg’s Competition: Create a layout or a card based on the PageMaps sketch below ( a larger picture is available in our March 2009 Competition Gallery).
* Upload the pictures of your work in the March 2009 Competition Gallery BEFORE midnight on March 31, 2009;
• * You can enter as many times as you like;
• * The challenge is open to anyone, but you will need to register on our site if you want to upload into our gallery!

Remember: the winner of each competition will receive a mystery scrapbooking pack valued at $ 30.00!
