Scrapbookers Anonymous...

Wow....October already!!!  Its an exciting month for us here in Dunedin.  Not only is it my birthday month, friends visiting from the States, AND we will have our first preview service for the church we are starting here.....which by the way is on the 30th...MY birthday!!  :)  We have been working toward this day for a couple years now....exciting stuff.  Ok.....I get a little excited about this month.  :)

October also means another challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  This month's challenge is "die cuts".  This could mean dusting off that die cutting machine....or maybe your's doesn't have dust on it!!!  Or it could be using die cuts made from a manufacturer.  Either works for this challenge.  I used the Cuttlebug for this challenge.  I wanted to keep it fairly simple so I dry brushed a few different colours of paint on my cardstock and then added my photo and embellishments.  Easy peasy.....  :)

I hope you'll pull out your machines or find your die cuts and play along with us.  Make sure you link up your project to Scrapbookers Anonymous for a chance to win a prize and so I can check them out.

Happy Crafting!  :)
