Introducing October's Guest Designers!

 Hello and Happy Saturday! I am just popping in today to remind you that today is the last day to enter our September challenges. You have until 6 PM CDT to get your layouts linked up for a chance at this month's prize - a $15 gift certificate to an online store of choice. 

That also means that we will have a new theme and start a new set of challenges with tomorrow's challenge and we have two super talented guest designers joining us in October! Please help us welcome Sue and Shannon!

October GDT - Sue


I have been crafting since I was 12. Started with knitting, followed by dressmaking, embroidery, and crochet. I only started cardmaking when I retired and it seems to have taken over the house! I then became interested in scrapbooking and did a few local classes, but didn't do much until we had been on holiday to Australia in 2014 and I decided to do an album. It took me five years, with lots of gaps between pages! I've now just finished one of our trip to Canada and the USA in 2010. This one has only taken me a few weeks. I'm getting faster!

You can see Sue's beautiful work on her blog - Zouave Cards.

October GDT - Shannon


Hi!  My name is Shannon and I reside in Fort Wayne, IN.  I am the proud mother of 2 children and three furbabies!  I have been married to my best friend for nearly 30 years and he enables my scrapbook addiction!  I love taking pictures and am currently training my puppies to say "Cheese".  When I am not scrapping, walking my dogs or running kids around, I am a social worker/therapist and own my own private practice.  I LOVE going to theme parks and am a fan of "scream therapy"!  There's nothing better than the feeling you get racing around on a roller coaster!  I am also a Disney fanatic!

You can see more of Shannon's beautiful work on her blog - Blinnsblog. You can find her on Instagram here - onescrappymom71, and she has a Youtube channel you can check out here - https://www.youtube.com/user/shanedblinn

We are so excited to have Sue and Shannon joining us for our October challenges! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for a new challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!

Yes, if you turn the world upside down, we would be the right way up. It's finally time to pull back out the swimming togs and head back to the beach and watering holes, with flowers blooming and trees blowing in the wind it is picture perfect! *

As a reminder - our theme for September is - Wonders of the World - and we are celebrating different cultures each and every week.

This week we are headed to China. The Chinese are well known for their Feng Shui. So our challenge for this week is:
