Autumn Mini Album Swap-UPDATED

Linky Tools is up and running.. 
Those of you that have received your minis can start linking them to the post.. Can't wait to see what everyone has made..

Good morning ladies..
Us girls at SOUS have been putting our heads together trying to find ways
of inspiring you, to get you to think outside the box and to challenge you to try new things..
So we thought to have a SWAP..
Sounds like fun right? 
Oh, were excited about this one and hope you are too..

Our first SWAP would be an
Autumn themed mini album..

don't get scared just yet..LOL
Its more simple than it sounds..

You will be randomly paired off to another SWAP participant and once your minis are done, you will send them to each other and please include a little thank you gift in your box.

If you would like to participate in the swap, leave a comment and then contact Nanné by clicking HERE
or emailing her at :
(leave your email information and your first name so we can forward your information to your swap buddy)
No home address or phone numbers please, you can keep that between you and your buddy...
and you can email Nanné or leave a comment at anytime during the swap with questions,etc...

  We think that everyone that wants to participate should sign up before our next sketch challenge is posted (August 20th).
We will then randomly draw names to pair you up and email you your swap buddies email information..
We want the mini album to be a surprise, so no peeking or giving out hints..LOL
Lets keep it fun!!

The requirements would be:

1. Size:
No smaller and no bigger than a 6x6 (cause then it wouldn't be a mini) and
covered with designer printed cardstock/paper.
2.. Has to have 6 pages which includes a decorated front cover and  back cover.
 3.Add a minimum of four tags and pockets to your book.
*tags are always so much fun
4.. Autumn colors and embellishments.

5. You can add bling, charms, ribbons, fibers, lace, flowers, brads, embossing, 
stamping, rub-ons.
Here is your time to get creative..

6. Add photo mats and journaling spots on the pages.
 *The amount is up to you, but remember it is a photo album after all..
and most importantly
 Make with your heart. 
*Take pride in your work ladies

Now we know that these mini's might take some time to get finished, 
so we are giving you till the end of October and hopefully have it shipped to your swap buddy by the beginning of November.
If this is a success, we will be announcing a new SWAP at the end of October.

Once you have received your new mini, we want you to take a photo of it, post it on your blog and then link it back to us using McKlinky on the SWAP post.  You will find a link to the post on our sidebar.

*Sign up only if you are serious about joining the swap, we don't tolerate any flakers, but if for any reason you can not finish your mini, please let us know early so that we  don't have any disappointed participants.

So, lets have some fun ladies and get creating..

p.s. McKlinky will start accepting posts on October, Please take a photo of the mini you received and post on McKlinky..

October 15th-round sketch and GD-Jane Stirling

TGIF everyone..
So! Sick of doing the regular same ole same ole sketches ?..LOL
No of course not and neither are we :)
But we decided to challenge you this week with a round sketch.. How sweet right?
Our design team has done a magnificent job this week as you will see.
Some have decided to keep it round, others decided to make it square and some even did both..
we would absolutely love to see what YOU can do with this sketch that is just a little different than your average norm..

So, onto the layouts that we have for you this week:

And we have a wonderful Guest Designer for you this week..
Please meet Jane Stirling, you can visit her wonderfully talented blog by clicking HERE.
*We love to see scrappers from all over the globe.

Here is her take on this weeks sketch:

and we have a little "get to know her" for you:

Hi Everybody
My name is Jane Stirling – aka Scossie Jane.
My husband, Andy, and I have lived in Perth, Western Australia for ten years now, though we hail from Scotland – thus the Scossie bit, Scottish/Australian.....

I have two adult children, daughter and son – and three totally adorable granddaughters, Rebekah, Erin and Emma. Rebekah and Emma are my daughter’s children and Erin is son’s daughter.
Daughter and family live in Australia, son is in Scotland. They are the main subjects of my scrapping adventures.....

I discovered scrapbooking in 2004 and it is now part of my daily life.....

I have taken part in the SOUS challenges since they began with their very
first sketch in October last year. I was looking for some
direction in my scrapping and when I came
across their brand new site, I thought I would give it a go.....

I have been following them ever since,
and have only missed three of the
40 sketches they have posted to this date.....

And, here I am as a guest designer for that 40th Sketch.....

I am excited to appear on the Stuck On U Sketches Blog
as Guest Designer and thank Nanne, Sandi and Leah for the honour.....

This is my take on Sketch #40...
Looking forward to seeing you there.....Hugs xx
