Beyond The Door - New Room & CT Call Out

This month at Beyond the Door the gorgeous room to inspire you is a library.  Take inspiration from the colours, patterns, the decor, the textures, the objects in the room or by what the room is itself (for example, create a page of your child reading).

We want you to be inspired to scrap YOUR photos the way YOU want to, with a little assistance in the way of inspiration from us here at BTD.  Enjoy, and don't forget to share your work with us!

Lost in a World of Fantasy

I recently took this photo of Brittany, lounging on the sofa lost in a good book and thought it would be perfect for this room.  I chose to use the colours from the inspiration pic and strips of pp to frame the photo were inspired by the books in the pic.


Beyond the Door have a few openings now for CT members... Catie has decided that the following will be the criteria for anyone wishing to join the CT.

1. Create a page/project based on this month's room.

2. Email this month's project PLUS a pic of your favourite all time layout to me for voting by our existing team members.

 I hope to have applications from all of you! It is a very easy gig, with no pressure, and I would love to have some more of you fabulous scrappers joining us to help inspire our followers.

Applications will close 31 October 2011. My email address is in the side bar on the BTD blog site.  Click HERE for the link.


Sadly, I have decided to step down from the BTD CT after a fabulous 6-month term.  I would like to thank Catie for being so wonderful, and such a sweetie to work for, and for giving me the opportunity to be part of an amazingly talented Design Team.

If you've ever thought about trying out for a DT, don't think, just DO IT, you just never know until you try.  For those of you who decide to give it a go.. GOOD LUCK!!   Can't wait to see who the new DT members will be.

A Little Toot!!
