Gidday! So happy you are joining us for Colourful Creations Summer Blog hop fun!

My challenge for you is to create a

This tag has no limitations - you can create a large size tag, circle tag, any shape tag, as long as it looks like a SUMMER THEME!

Here are two samples to help the creative juices to flow:-

After you have completed your project, post it in the Colorful Creations Gallery and tag it


Your layout or project must be newly created as of July 20th, and cannot be combined with any other CC challenges.

You have until Sunday July 29th at midnight CST to complete challenges!

Can’t wait to see your creations!

If you complete my challenge, make sure you link it up at the bottom of my post, comment on my blog (i.e. hey rach I completed your page and it was so much fun!) so you will have a chance to win a RAK from me!


What would a blog hop be without something fun to “hop” around for?

Let’s go on a TREASURE HUNT!

Each DT member will give you a product or item from your stash to find on the hunt.

When you find the product, gather it, and at the end you will find a fun challenge to do at the Colorful Creations Blog!

For your "Summer Treasure Hunt" my product is to raid your stash and find anything


It can be in any shape, lettering, colour, painted or plain.

As long as it is made from chipboard!

Make sure to leave a comment at each blog once you get your treasure hunt item, so we know you are playing along!

Here is your map in case you get lost!!

Well another month has gone by very quickly and a lot has happened since the last time I posted.

I am very excited to announce I have been accepted as a DESIGN TEAM MEMBER at COLORFUL CREATIONS!  With the encouragement from my friend Fi, I decided to apply for Design Team call (back in June) and was delighted to hear I made the cut – Yeh!  Colorful Creations has been a lot of fun for me over the last 3 months and I have enjoyed the cyber atmosphere over there for a while now.  I am looking forward to being a part of a lovely group of people who love scrapbooking just as much as I do.

I would encourage anyone to play along at Colorful Creations as they have so many different challenges to try.  Since all the events are monthly challenges it gives you the chance to work on as many as you like within a reasonable time period.  Try your hand at sketches, recipes, tags, cards, colour combos and heaps more.  Since it is the first of the month I have my first EVENT CHALLENGE to post! Yeh!
My event is to create a RECIPE for a monthly challenge.  The page must include all “ingredients” of the following recipe:-

·         1 Border Punch
·         1 Stamp or Rub-on
·         3 Ribbons
·         5 Brads and/or gems
·         5-10 Flowers
·         Title and/or Journal
Here is my example:-

The border punch is the scalloped edge from my die-cut
My 3 ribbons are the floral coloured flowers on black background
I used a ‘leaf’ rub-on next to my photo
I have 10 flowers (including the flowers on my brads)
I have 2 brads & 3 gems on my flowers
And my title/journaling
So check it out it would be fantastic to see your pages and join a group of fellow scrapbook enthusiasts!
