Challenge 6......

Hi Everyone,

Here is our challenge 6 topic:

Create a lay-out about a collection you have. Whether it be shoes, ornaments or books - we want to know what you collect.....

Please upload your LO's to our gallery, leave us a link in the comments or e-mail them to by 27th Feb to be in with a chance of becoming our March guest designer and this month the winner will also receive a AUS $20 gift Certificate from our February Sponsor 'Hybird Designs Scrapbooking' - Thanks Mel xx

Here's what our fantastic DT came up with:



If I collect anything, it's crime novels !Followed closely by crime DVD's and taped TV shows ! I don't really know why, but I love this genre !


What do I collect? My collections range from James Dean and Star Wars memorabilia, to stamps, coins, and limited edition dolls. But I've decided to do a layout on my CD collection, which at last count came close to 1,000 pieces, ranging from classical to jazz to pop to rock. The photo shows only a handful from my stash, of which several are also signed by the artistes. The title is a quote from the Bard himself, William Shakespeare, who in his play Twelfth Night wrote: "If music be the food of love, play on."

Guest Designer - Fay

I decided to document my daughter's obession with collecting handbags. She has more than I do and I have been known to borrow one of her! I've tried to include lots of different textures - buttons, fabric, stitching, crocheted flowers, sequin waste and shelf lining - to reflect the handbag story.

We can't wait to see your creations.
