Lots of Scrappy Chat

I have been bitten by the scrapping bug! It is amazing what a clean desk will inspire you to do. I started scrapping last weekend and I was determined to get the challenges that I set each month for Chookscraps done this month. I've done that and my card for Emilys challenge as well as my first DT layout.

This is my card this week....Emily's challenge was to scrap "What is Powerful to You"
I've scrapped about the power of my mind. During the past few years I have come to realise just how powerful the mind can be. It has the power to blow things out of all proportion and shut you down, the power to take you to far away places where nothing can hurt you,it also has the power to allow you to dream big dreams, create wonderful legacies and to believe in your future.
These next four layouts are from the January Challenges at Chookscraps. Ever since I started setting the challenges I have found it hard to get them done. This month though I was determined to finish them. So here we have it....

I got my first Chookscraps Design Team kit today....and oh man I am in scrapping heaven. It is full of all sorts of yummy goodies. I spent the afternoon drooling over them and scrapping, but until I am allowed to upload them the layouts will remain a secret.

I am looking forward to the Chookscraps cybercrop this weekend...and to catching up with Kathy and Fran at the EMM crop day on Sunday. It is always nice to share layouts and idea with fellow Chooks in real life.
