However, if they haven’t made it thru to the next round, they will have the opportunity to continue to work on the challenges at their leisure throughout the competition.

Week 1-2 (anyone who sees themselves on a Design Team) In the first two rounds of the challenge, Forever Always talent scouts Sonia Bowers (FA Store Owner) and Angie Zavitsanos (Original FA Design Team Member) will make selections and forward invitations to the participants who will be invited to continue on to week 3. The scrappers will need to submit their entries based on the criteria set. For this stage of the challenge, the criteria will be aimed at showcasing your scrapping ability. Scrappers do not have to submit to each week, but to have a better chance of progressing it would be advantageous to submit each week. This will determine who among the scrappers will be "in the store." Watch the forum for more detailed rules closer to the date of the contest...we don't want to give everything away!!

I have been vomited on twice in 2 days ooooohhhhhh so gross. On the weekend we went out to see Denis and Kristy after about 50 mins of driving Brie started to whinge so I got her out of the car seat and she projectile hurled all over me...... The poor little thing I don't think the creaming soda her father had given her helped the situation!!! as if that wasn't enough spew Mia woke up crying this morning about 1am, she was asleep in our bed and I rolled over to see what was wrong next minute I was covered in spew again....... and lots of it! She obviously ate something that didn't agree with her as she is fine today.
I have 2 Happy Birthdays to shout out it was Salts dad's birthday yesterday and my Mum's today..... Hope your having a great birthday with Nana and Grandad, and I hope you get cake unlike ME! Lucky the FA girls gave me a cake at the retreat :o) I am making a Banana Cake atm to take over to Old Salt tonight.
I went out to Skye's property yesterday afternoon and took some photos of her gorgeous girls I will share some when I ask Skye if it is ok.
Have a great day everyone.

So i have been seeing this pay it forward challenge around a bit ....so I've joined the Pay it Forward challenge. I think it will be fun. I joined over at Sonia's blog.
The idea of this one is the first three people to join me will receive a handmade gift from me. I then have 365 days to make it and send it. The only stipulation to accepting the gift from me is that you must also put this on your blog and get three people each to sign up. Then you make your three people a handmade gift, and so on and so on...I think it sounds great.
Hopefully three bloggers out there will want a handmade gift from me.

Today I turned 29..... I received lots of text messages (thanks everyone) as I was in Dubbo picking my Nana and Grandad up off the plane, they have come to visit all the way from NZ so that was a lovely birthday present. I missed out on having a cake so we might have to have one tomorrow.
I am a bit spoiled, Mia and Brie gave me $50 and James gave me $150.00 he must have missed me last weekend when he went and brought the birthday cards. James always buys such beautiful cards I asked him tonight if he read what was in it before he brought it and he said "Yeah it is a good one HEY!!"
You mean so very much to me
sometimes it's hard to say
Exactly how I care for you
And what I feel each day
I've been a very lucky man
To have the love you've shown
To have the special pride I feel
Because you are my own.....
And since your are the one who brings
Such joy into my life
This birthday wish is just for you
My friend, my love, my wife.
with lots of hugs and kisses.... isn't he the sweetest :o)
Kay gave me some king size sheets and money to buy some clothes with in Dubbo so I brought some tops as I have pants just needed new tops to go with them.
My mum sent me flowers they are so beautiful. Thanks Mum
Nana and Grandad gave me perfume and I brought my self lots of scrapbooking stuff in Dubbo and a 3 tier cake tray very pretty... Thanks Chrissy for making me want one!!!
I am off to get some scrapbooking done that is due tomorrow....
Happy Birthday to Amie in America for the 13th I hope you are having a great day.
