New Challenges for 2010

I'm doing a Challenge each week at Scrapchat this year.
A topic will be posted weekly and we scrap about it. The first two have been doozies.

I've decided on an A5 Visual Arts Diary. Not too big, not too small and easy enough to do a challenge a week in.
Well, that's the plan anyway...

Here's my Front page.

Then an Introduction page, with a little about what the journal is about.

And last week's topic...all about something you have lost.
Mine was about losing my faith in human nature and my sense to read people.

I'm neary fnished this weeks. I have a little more to add to it yet.
I'll share when I'm done.

This is the first scrapping I've done in a few months. After doing so many Masters challenges for Scrapbooking Memories mag and being on 2 Design Teams, I felt a little scrapped out.

I've sadly said goodbye to Scrap n Craft with T and Anna's Craft Cupboard in 2010. I've been with Anna for nearly 3 years and Tanyah for 1 year. How time flies when you're having fun. But, it's time to move on.

I've had a good break away from it all over the Christmas holidays,  so I'll be concentrating on just Chelley Bean for 2010. I have some exciting things in the works. With new products, markets and a few other things that I won't disclose just yet! :)

 You'll find my last Step by Step for Anna's Craft Cupboard on the blog and it can be found here.

Here's the layout...

I've also got my last kit up for the month of January at Scrap n Craft with T. Some yummy Fancy Pants papers for a lovely Christmas layout. The instructions can be found on Tan's blog here.

Here's the double layout...

I hope you are having  a great week!

Chat soon,
