I'm a...

I am beyond thrilled to FINALLY announce I'm a Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2014 (which most of you are probably already aware). 
Eeek! This has been a dream of mine for some years now and I'm so thankful to be given this opportunity. 

This is first time I've entered the competition even though I have wanted to for the past few years.
I am always so inspired by the Master's creations and hope I can inspire all of you over the year.

This process was actually I lot more stressful than I thought it would be! We went on a holiday to Broome (which is documented in one of my projects) while I was working on my entries. I didn't realise I only had a week afterwards to finish them and even start one layout.
This was especially difficult as I avoid double layouts and rarely work with larger photos, so I spent hours on these pages.

What is the Masters challenge? For those friends and family member's who don't know, the Master's challenge is a competition set by Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. There are four challenge criteria, this year was to create a handmade background, use a 5x7 photo, create a double layout documenting a journey and make a 2014 calendar. 
10 winners are chosen and receive a bundle of goodies from each sponsor, and are also required to create a layout for each issue throughout the year using the sponsors products.
I signed a confidentiality agreement and was able to reveal this until just before Christmas. Longest 3 months ever. 

The Masters Issue went on on sale on the 2nd of January for those of you who are interested. Here's what it looks like.
