A Truckload of Shoes

Well, even though I hate my skinny, size 11 feet with giant 'finger toes' I can still appreciate a fine pair of shoes. I also sure as heck would like to win $2000 worth of shoes! Well, all prayers have been answered by StyleTread! You can enter the competition here, although I would prefer you leave me with a better chance of winning! Hehe.

I would like to win a truckload of shoes as I need a kick up the butt in terms of my shoe collection. With my 'difficult' feet I tend to shy away from shoe shopping and, if I buy anything at all, it is always the same flat, lace up shoes! So much so, I even chose these as my wedding shoes for my wedding in 4 weeks' time! I am also recovering from torn ligaments in my ankle so I have been off heels for a while now and I need to get back into wearing them and some shiny new ones would be the perfect encouragement to get my ankle strength back up.

I have been browsing the StyleTread site for some time now and I have decided my favourite pair if shoes would have to be these beauties! Hopefully my feet would squeeze into the 10.5! Anything with stripes or polka dots has me sold!

New Competition

Ready for takeoff? Chookscraps is holding a new competition - The Amazing Chook Race. This consists of 12 rounds, each 2 weeks long. It kicked off on the 27th of March so you can still sign up and complete the first challenge (due 9th of April I believe). Even if you do miss the first flight, you can join up at any time. The first challenge involved packing lightly and you had to scrap about friendships or relationships. Here is my entry:

Good News and More Good News

Well, the first good news I heard is that I was one of the 3 winners for the Chookscraps Guest Design Team comp! I will be the guest DT member for June so I can't wait for that. The first winner has already started her duties this month. I can't wait to get stuck into these monthly challenges.

My second piece of good news is that I am now an Aunty! I could not be happier about the safe arrival of my new niece and I made this to celebrate. I have now given this to the proud parents. She was just half an hour old in this photo.

And, to catch up, here is my fave entry from the SBT50 March cybercrop:

New Forum, New Friends

I am a brand new member of Scrapbboking Top 50 now after following Charm's (from 1,2,3 and Bon's) advice to join. Everyone there seems very friendly and I can't wait to join in some of thier challenges. I have joined half way through a cybercrop so am hoping to squeeze in a LO or two before the deadline.

To win these gorgeous buttons you just have to visit her blog and leave a comment on the relevant post. Extra entry for spreading the word!
