A reminder

I've mentioned this before, but here is another reminder:

I AM A Scrapaholic's new Out From Behind the Camera Challenge Series is designed to help you scrap more about yourself. You may create an album all about you just for you; you may just want to add your layouts to your current albums, or a combination thereof. It’s entirely up to you. The most important thing is to get you into your albums, to celebrate you, and to leave an important legacy for your family. Remember the people you scrap about will also enjoy seeing layouts about you too!

Week by week we will help you with themes, sketches, samples and ideas to help you along the way. You will earn RAKs and discounts along the way. But, most importantly you will have layouts about you.

Each month will focus on a theme.

Each Monday a new challenge will be posted. The challenge will include a topic [subject] and a sketch exclusive to I AM A Scrapaholic for you to use (if you choose), and samples by the Design Team.

You can pick and choose the challenges you wish to complete. Each challenge you complete and upload to the gallery will earn you points. These points will accumulate and will earn you RAKs and discounts. See the Point System thread for details.

You are not obliged to participate every week, and there is no competitive element here, we want to see everyone joining in as much as possible no matter what your scrapping level or schedule.

Each week one of the DT members will choose a layout they love from the previous week to highlight. this person will receive an additional bonus point. A layout maybe chosen based on the overall design, the journaling, the photo, or for whatever reason the DT member chooses. We all have different tastes so it could be anyone and for any reason.

Monthy blogging.

I have gotten so bad with my blog that it seems to have become a monthly thing. Oh well, better than never.

Lots of things to catch up on.

I'm 28 weeks now. Everythign is going fine. I do need to start setting up for him though.

We have moved to a new apartment. Still in the same neighbourhood, but with much mroe space now. It's really nice. We like it here.

Michael's parents have just gone back home after being here almost a month. Kyan was obsessed with Grandma and no-one else existed, including me. We have just about gotten him back into routine now. Michael and I took the opportunity to go to Peurto Rico for a few days which was really nice. Michael's favourite part was going to the Bacardi distillery.

We are in week one of our monthly comp. It's going really well and the prizes are awesome. It's too late to join in, but we are having little mini comps each Friday night for the month, that anyone can join in and there are prizes for that too.

Here are my projects for the month.

I Am A Scrapaholic
