Next I scored from the point of each arm of the starfish all the way down to the v directly across from it.
Then I folded the creases that run from each point of the star to the centre so that the crease came up in a peak. The creases that ran from the v to the centre were creased downwards to create a valley.
Finally I inked te starfish before sticking them on to my LO with glossy accents. There's an odd butterfly towards the top of the page because I got paint smudges on the paper and couldn't come to terms with it :) I know that these things are supposed to come in threes but two starfish and one butterfly equals three in my book ;) Connor wanted to help me stick the starfish on so he put the small one on for me, pushing it down and saying 'it's all flat now!' Great!! Those ink smudges will just remind me of him though. I enjoyed this challenge- thanks Amanda.
The CHA has finally arrived and Team GoGo are there putting together kits for the next 6 months. They've got some sneaks for you on the blog today. 'Grab it' day is on Tuesday and you could win your favourite 'Grab it' by leaving a comment on te blog here and you could win My Mind's Eye products from the CHA here.
And, as I mentioned above, October Afternoon's new lines are added to my shopping list :)

So the GoGo CHA team have jetted off to LA for the CHA where they'll be choosing products for the next 6 months of kits. The design team have already had some insights in to the working of the GoGo Girls' minds and wow they're good :) I'm excited to see what the final choices look like!
More things have have caught my eye in the last couple of days:
Pretty masks from Prima

I'm looking forward to having a play with them! There are a number of ways of doing this. You can have them delivered in glossy real life with your kit for an additional cost of £2 (£1.80 if you're a member) OR you can visit the hybrid link on the ScrapaGoGo site each month to download it there. The GoGo girls even offer it in two different formats for those that like to print, cut and stick and those who like to do it digi. These are both completely free of charge! Bargain :)
There were more products unveiled by Prima yesterday. I always have Prima on my wish list but I have to say that I seem to have more products than usual on my list this time around :) These Knitties and Whisper flowers for example...

'With the new year upon us, a lot of people have been focusing on their resolutions for 2011. With that in mind, we'd like to hear about a LONG TERM goal of yours. Do you have a big ambition? Let's create a layout reflecting on these goals as a reminder of what we one day hope to achieve.'
I'm not sure that you could call mine a long term ambition, it's more of a pipe dream. I'd love to buy a big house or even a hotel and convert it into a Scrappers Retreat. I'd have a shop and a cafe so that people could pop in for the day once the kids were at school but I'd also run retreats with classes running, and weekend crops. The main crop room with be bright and sunny. My idea of heaven :)
I combined the Studio Challenge with Sketchy Thursday's sketch this week.
Bella Blvd 'Lovey Dovey-Circle of Love'
Sassafras Lass 'Indie Girl-Eclectic Elegance'
Sassafras Lass Sweet Treats stickers 'Me Likey'
Sassafras Lass Garden bits- blues
Doodlebug 'loopy lou' and 'Shin-dig' cardstock stickers
Bazill Basics cardstock
And in other news. If you're a Nikki Sivils fan, check out the giveaway on her blog today. You could win the whole 'Sugar Cookie' range. And if you've never heard of Nikki Sivils, a) where have you been and b)keep your eyes peeled for my 'Scrap that' review later this week :)
And finally... you can get to know the ScrapaGoGo design team a little better each month with our 'Meet the team' feature on the blog. This month it's Sheena's turn so hop along to the new look ScrapaGoGo blog to see what WW1 postcards, stained glass lampshades and a guilotine all have in common x

And that Jenni Bowlin isn't helping either with her irresitable pet bingo cards. Tut! At least noone will be hard pushed for birthday present ideas this year I guess (and yes that's a MASSIVE hint to my loved ones!)
Sweet dreams everyone and have a happy weekend x

Recently I've been getting lots of emails from people who would like to start scrapbooking but don't really know where to start. I personally think that buying a kit is a great place to start. It gives you the opportunity to try a variety of maufacturers and a variety of products so that you can work out what you like and what you don't like. So, if you're thinking about starting this wonderful hobby then look no further than ScrapaGoGo :)
There are lots of add ons coming up this month but here's a little taster for you
'My Little Bit of Whimsy' are having a contest :) It's really easy to join in with so I thought I'd tell you all about it. I love Stephanie's new rocket whimsies and the donut ones are a must too. Check out how you could win some whimsies here.
You can see some of Stephanie's products on my 'Preschool Playmate' LO here and my 'Awesome Autumn' LO here too.
Have a great day x
One of my online friends, TL, has decided to take the brave step of applying for their design team too. Why not go over to her blog and show her some love today?x

This months exclusive stamp has been designed by our very own GoGo DT member Nicola and it's irresistable, don't you think?

Prima have teamed up with Tattered Angel to bring out their new (MIST).a.ble range which look fabulous and the design team have created some amazing LOs with them AND these flocked rub ons that I have to stroke :) Bella Blvd create such fab boyish collections that I knew when I saw the dog and dino badges that I was not going to be disappointed. The sneaks today are fabulous and I can't wait to see more from their Mr Boy collection:
Websters are outdoing themselves with whimsys this season. I'm loving them!
So basically I need a small mortgage to pay for everything that I like the look of and that's before Sassafras lass and October Afternoon bring out there new ranges- eek!
