November Girlfriend Of The Month!!!

It's time to introduce you to our November Girlfriend Of The Month!!! It's a girl that recently joined our community and we LOVE having her hang out with us! Her work is very inspiring! Here she is:

Here's what she had to say about herself:
I am 40 years old. Married to my loving and supportive husband Murray. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Amy (4) and Chloe (1), they are the apple of my eye. I was born and bred in Durban, South Africa. A little city along the coastline.

I had always been a keen card-maker, until my sister-in-law introduced me to the world of Scrapbooking in October 2001. I went for my first class at a local craft shop in November and you could say I have been bitten by the Scrappin Bug and am now hooked!

When husband and I had started to think about starting a family, the birth of my daughters motivated me to create a legacy to leave behind for them one day. As well as it being a hobby that I can actually loose myself in!

Scrapbooking has been growing in leaps and bounds in South Africa, but it is not as far and widespread as in the US, which I hope it will become one day. Therefore I end up shopping online to get the nice product you all have. I have attended almost all the conferences in South Africa and have met some amazing people like Becky Higgins, Faye Morrow-Bell, Tracy White, Rebecca Sower, Karen Foster, Heidi Swapp, Donna Downey, Stacy Julian, Karen Burniston to name a few. . .

My work has been featured in our local magazine and I was one of the finalists in the Creative Reflections Scrapbook Trading Company Talent Search for 2006.

I would say my style is clean and simple. I try to keep as much focus on the photo`s - sometimes my style changes with the wind but I guess that is creativity for you. My most comfortable size is 12 x 12 although I also enjoy putting mini albums together and even venture off the page to home decor now and again. Some of my favourite product lines are Heidi Swapp, Basic Grey, Chatterbox, Making Memories, Pink Paislee and many more. My weakness is that I try to be too perfect and my strength would be focusing on the photos.

Congrats Sophia! We are so happy you joined Scrap-Friendzy!!!

Flip Flop Friday Challenge #3

Today's challenge is a combination of small pics and lots of white space (blank area). You need to use wallet sized (or smaller) photos (no more than 3) and be sure to situate your design so that you have plenty of white space. Limit your embellishing to keep your page pretty simple.

On this layout I used 3 wallet sized photos near the bottom leaving the top fairly empty (white space).

Post your layout in the correct forum for 10 Pointz!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #2

Another way to create a simple layout is to limit yourself to one color--a monochromatic color scheme. Create a layout using only 1 color (or varying shades of one color) for 15 pointz. Do one in all white and I'll give you 20!

Here are a couple of examples. My pink one cheats a little bit with the white touches but I'm sure y'all can do better! ;)

Be sure to post your layouts in the correct section of the MB.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Here she is... Our July GFOTM.... AnnMarie Trammell!!!

Here's what she told us about herself:
I'm 35, married to a firefighter, and mom to 1 son. I
work for a suburban school district as a curriculum
coordinator which means that I work to improve
instruction in the area of language arts. When I'm not
at work, most often you can find me at the baseball
field cheering on my son's team or at my desk creating
something (and making a mess in the process!)

Here's some of her fave projects:

Congratulations AnnMarie!! We'r so happy to have you hang out with us here at SF!!

Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #1

I was trying to come up with something clever to tie flip-flops and scrapping together and since flip-flops are the least amount of shoes that you can wear, I decided to go with a "less is more" approach. On Fridays this month you will create super simple pages. Don't panic! Your pages are not going to have to look naked to be considered simple. Keeping it simple can still make a great impact and definitely be pleasing to the eye.

Today I would like for you to choose only 1 cardstock, 1 patterned paper, 1 title font, and 1 embellishment. (You may use any amount of photos, though I used only 1.)

By using only 1 embellishment, I kept the focus on my photo.

We would love to see your version of this challenge. Load your page in the "Flip-Flop Fridays Challenge #1" thread on the MB for 15 pointz.

Also if you would like to have a little fun this weekend, we are having a huge birthday crop at Simply Obsessed starting today. We would love to have you join in the fun! Hope to see you there!
