2010 Layout Challenge

I don't know what I've got myself into but a fellow CTMH Consultant has issued a challenge to the rest of us Consultants to do between 120-150 layouts in 2010! Why oh why do I do this to myself!!!! She recommended 120-150 but I opted in for 100 - about 2 a week - which to me is (maybe) do-able.

We will all be posting the layouts on our blogs with the label of "2010 Layout Challenge" so we can keep track of one another.

Stay tuned - it should be fun!

If you want to play along, let me know ... I'll try and think up something fun to do while we are in the process and maybe a little something-something for someone at the end of it all! Comment if you're interested or have any questions.

To see all the CTMH Consultants playing along see the right side panel for links.

(ETA: I think I will cave to peer pressure. The lowest anyone else is committing to is 120 so will change my amount to that .... keep your fingers crossed!)

Meet Felicity ...

I have been so crazy busy with work and TRYING to get all of my Xmas cards made and mailed out (plus all the other fun stuff that goes with the holiday season - like shopping that I haven't had time to play with this yet but I have FOUR glorious days off next week to play to my heart's content and that's exactly what I am planning on doing. I love the die cut papers and the colors are really growing on me .... they got me thinking outside my comfort zone of colors and I am just loving the combinations Close To My Heart have come up with on this one.

I can't believe I am going to say this but, yes, I am liking the orange in combination with the other colors! Gasp! (Orange and yellow are my least fave colors to use when scrapping - I usually find them so hard to use) I am actually looking forward to working with this kit now! Yep, I am going to live on the edge! :-)

Starting tomorrow (15 December 2009) and until 31 January 2010 you can get this beautiful kit in your home in several ways ... and I do mean beautiful. The more I look at it, the more I love it and am contemplating getting a second kit! :-)
The kit features decorative die cut papers, three stunning color schemes and a D size stamp set that includes flowers, flourishes, argyle patterns, birds and an entire alphabet!
