It's TODAY!!!!

Woohooo! Our official first WAA Challenge!

You have seen the lovely prizes (Thanks Wicked Princesses)

It is now time to reveal our first inspirational ad!

All you need to do is create a LO inspired by this advert, and use journalling on the LO before midnight August 25th.

You may be inspired by the colours, the layout of the advert, the sentiment...anything!

To enter all you need to to is post your LO on your blog, with an explanation of how this ad inspired you and leave a link in the comments section of this post.

Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section of this post also:)

And here is how our amazing CT were inspired...

Lauren was inspired by the background print, the colours and has used lots of heartfelt journalling on her LO, like a letter to her gorgeous son:) Gina was also inspired by the background in the advert (its almost impossible NOT to be!) and the cuddling (how gorgeous is this photo??? How can you NOT feel the love?)

Kirsty has again used the background as inspiration and borrowed the colour combination to create this LO about her son. the journalling is again heartfelt and like a letter to her son

And wow..Lisa has created an amazing 8x11.5 LO inspired again by the background of the advert, the layout and the heartfelt sentiment.

We are really excited to see what you create, and can't wait to visit your blog to see how you have been inspired! So, what are you waiting for???? Get messy and start creating!!!!

Our first challenge will be up tomorrow, but we thought we get everyone in the mood and show what's on offer for our very first prize.

As well as being our GCT in October, we have a "Vintage Romance" scrap kit from Wicked Princesses to give away. Full of vintage Jenni Bowlin goodness, and timeless, classic colors of red and black. There's something in this kit for everyone !! And one you don't want to miss out on. This kit is valued at $25.00

We also have a prize on offer for 2nd place, which is a set of Kaisercraft clear stamps.

To be in the running, you simply need to leave a comment (when the challenge is posted) with a link to your LO, and a brief comment on what inspired you from the advertisement.

One more sleep to go !!!!

Hi, My name is Kirsty. I am married with three kidlets living in a small town in QLD. I have been scrapping for about 6 years now and seem to just get more and more addicted to it :)
My favourite thing about scrappign would have to be the 'me' time that it entails and also the shopping!!!!

‘My name is Lauren Bell. I am married and have 3 beautiful kids – the youngest born in May this year. I have been scrapping for about 5 years. I like to create funky bright layouts and have had layouts published in Scrapbook Creations and soon to be Scrapbooking Memories. I look forward to being part of the WAA CT. ’
You can see more of Lauren's fabulous scrapping over at her blog

Meet Lisa!

I have been scrapping for just over 6 years and really enjoy the process of putting my memories and thoughts down for families to treasure for years to come.
Journalling is a big passion of mine, I love to tell the story. I also love to get messy with paints and other mediums.
I have been published once and will be again soon, but don't really submit very much.I am currently also on the DT for Buzz and Bloom.

Meet Gina!

Over the next few days our uber talented CT ladies will be introduced to you :) Everyone is VERY excited about our first month's challenge and are eagerly scouring the universe (LOL) for inspirational ads ( no more coffee or toilet trips in the add breaks ladies!)

So friends, let me introduce you to Gina!
Hi, I am Mum to 2 gorgeous girls aged 10 and 13. I live amongst the mountains, bush and apple orchards in the Huon Valley which is south of Hobart in Tasmania. We have chooks, a dog and plenty of wildlife around.
When I'm not scrapping, I work part-time for a conservation agency, make cards and jewellery, garden and play tennis.
I've been scrapping for about 3 years and can't get enough! I find it hard to put a name to my style as it's evolving all the time, but I'm really enjoying experimenting with new mediums lately, and trying to bring in different textures through the use of fabrics, paint, tape etc..and always on the lookout for unique items to add to pages such as vintage ephemera...I also love making my own embellishments and trying out new colour combinations and techniques...the possibilities are endless!
I'm really excited about the challenges here, what a great concept! .and I can't wait to see everyone else's interpretations of the ads :)
More about Gina and some of her gorgeous scrapping can be found on her blog
Check back over the next few days to meet the rest of our inspirational team!
