Challenge #23 Shabby Chic November 10th- 21st.

Challenge #22 Shabby Chic November 10-21

This new Shabby Chic challenge reminds me of playing in the attic and finding all things beautiful and transforming them into art.  My mother would throw old worn out things out...now we treasure those things as memories.  Shabby Chic is re-creating that worn sweet memories look. 


Rules for challenges are listed above as a page tab.  Mainly, you are to use a Sherri Baldy's My Besties and the challenge theme...make a link to this blog on your blog post. 

Take a look at what our Design Team made to inspire you, please take some time to visit their blogs and leave a comment.  Thank you!

A Fun challenge for you! Challenge #22 Embossing (Wet or Dry)

Challenge #22 Embossing Wet or Dry - October 27- November 7

Do you remember when you did paper rubbings as a child?  Dry embossing reminds me of those rubbings, however, now we have these awesome folders and so many techniques using the embossing folders.  What about wet embossing, oh my so many fun embossing powders, sparkly, chunky and basic.  I really hope you all show us some fun techniques using our challenge theme of Wet or Dry Embossing

Please welcome our newest Design Team Member, Sandra!

It is always so exciting to introduce a new Design Team member... please welcome Sandra.  Here is just a taste of her wonderful work using image 180 and a bit about her:



Hi!
My name is Sandra and I live in Sweden with my husband and our four children (ages 9 months, 2, 3 and 9 years)
I work as a nurse at our local hospital since 2001.

I LOVE scrapbooking since 2005. Now a days I mostly make cards and alter things.
My favorite part is to color and I´m a true ProMarker addict.
I love embellishments like lace, pearls and flowers - and I prefer a LOT of them :)
Making a CAS card is a big challenge for me *lol*
And I almost forgot - I love pink :) and like to use different pink combinations.
Besides crafting, I love music and reading books (crimes!).
I feel so excited and honored to be included in the team and I´m really looking forward to work with all these talented people :)
Hugs, Sandra

Please welcome our newest Design Team Member Annette!

Hello,
My name is Annette Steeden Stapylton and I am thrilled to be included in the My Besties Int'l DT and am so looking forward to working with the other DT members on the team who are all very unique creators. I am truly honored and excited to be asked to work alongside extremely talented people.

Just a little note about me. I am the creator of a Scrap Book Site where I also promote Sherri Baldy's My Besties with a monthly card challenge. The name of my site is "Meet at the Scrappers Corner" and I have people from all over the world amongst my members. The group only started in April this year and is slowly growing each day with around 316 members at the moment. I have my own DT with 6 wonderful Ladies from Mexico, Netherlands, USA, UK and Australia.

I am currently DT for Scrapbook Blessings Club, Funky Flairs and of course my very favorite one, My Besties 3D Deco. 

I discovered 3D's only a short while ago via a very dear Besties Friend, and I must admit, I am hooked on 3D. I promote My Besties and include 3D's as well as Digitals and Rubber Stamps in all of my monthly Challenges.

My forte is definitely making Cards and entering Card Challenges.
Today I have posted a brand new creation which took me approx 3 days to finally complete. I made this Red and White Easel Heart Box Card to enter into Challenges.
I adore working with my favorite colours which are Red/White ~ Black/White ~ Red/Black/Grey/White. 



I hope you like my creation which I have included here today and I thank you so much for taking the time to read this little write up about me.
Cheers,
Annette
