Exciting News from Scrap-It-Lah (Updated)

It's a whole 2 months of excitement at Scrap-It-Lah with not ONE but SEVEN  RAKs to be given away.  Yes,  you have read it RIGHT.  We have 7 brand NEW exciting challenges and YUMMY RAKs to be given away - this is NO April Fool's joke.  Do head over here to join in the Blog Hop Challenges and a chance to win lots of yummy RAKs.

Why?  It is just simply because SIL has just turned 2 this April and we have decided to celebrate it with a BANG!  The challenges are run very simply.  Each DT will post a challenge up on her blog and the challenge will ONLY run for 7 days.  There is only ONE running challenge each week and when the challenge closes,  the next talented DT will take over with another brand new challenge. Sounds very action-packed and fun doesn't it?  Do join us here if you are interested.

Here is my take on the first challenge:

I am sure most of us has unscrapped birthday photos lying around.  Well I do have loads and this was a great opportunity to restart my scrapping.  Here is a layout of Sean's 7th Birthday at Petrosains. You may not have guessed - this is my first time using a banner on my layouts.  I must admit that I am quite a slow person when it comes to scrapbooking trends.   Like I mentioned before,  I scrap as I want to document my kids' stories and not anything else.  Hence,  I tend to focus on  that and not keeping up with what is the latest.   I wish I could but I simply have no time to notice anything else.

The little munchkin looks so happy just with blowing out the candles on his cake that was made by a friend of mine.

I love how the twine gives the whole layout a bit more texture and interest.

Gosh,  what do we do without Thickers?  Love the Jenny Bowlin calendar and the buttons.

Do check out what is in store for you if you participate in the challenge.  You may win the Studio Calico Mossy Knoll Kit if you are lucky.  What are you waiting for?  Head over here to join the challenge.

Next,  we would like to invite interested scrappers to apply for a Design Team position at SIL. For more details,  please head over here to see if you have what it takes to work with SIL.

Now, I have to turn off the computer and start scrapping and do a take on the latest challenge.  I think it would be fun to do all the challenges and catch up with my scrapping.  :) Hope that you will participate in our challenges too.   I have finished my take on the challenge and can't wait to see yours!
