I am now officially a "Mad Hatter"

I just wanted to share some great news, I am now officially a Mad Hatter. I was accepted as part of the Mad Hatters design team over at Out of The Hat scrapbooking challenge blog. I just love the concept of choosing three different criteria each month to challenge and inspire you.



Congratulations to the other Mad Hatters, they are:

Taryn Stark
Debbie Johnston
Christine Rayner
Anne Patterson

This is what it's all about:

You design the challenge each month! Send us your ideas - colours to use, techniques to use, number of photos, double or single page, anything that tickles your fancy - even things not to use. Then on the first day of each month, we'll find a hat to hold all the ideas, and draw out three to challenge you.

Each month there will be three fantastic prizes up for grabs. Winners will be decided across three categories, public vote winner which is decided by you, a random winner which is drawn from the names of all those that enter and a design team winner which is chosen by the design team. Prizes are displayed in the Prize Pool section in the opposite column.

You'll have until the 25th of each month to email your layout to the address below, and we'll announce the winner at the end of the month.

So get your ideas and layouts in now, cause as they say, you gotta be in it to win it!!
