What's Going On...

Hi everyone... I've been busy plugging away at submissions for Paper Crafts Go-to Sketches Vol. 2. I actually have 2 sketches that will be in the issue (look for #51 & #60). Are any of you planning on submitting?  I think you should:) I know I have a few scrapbooking friends out there who are contemplating breaking into card making... well... what are you waiting for? This is the perfect call to get started with:) You can find the details & sketches HERE! I'd love to see your work published (and if any of you use one of my sketches you get bonus points in my book;).  Just a note, this is a cards only call & it ends on Monday night 2/28 at midnight MST.

I also have some fabby news to share! I have been invited to join the Spellbinders Design Team for 2011... yeah!!! You can find the entire announcement HERE. I'm kind of speechless about it & way happy. So thankful to have the opportunity to work with the following ladies (I've linked to their blogs so you can check them out):
Lesley Langdon

Now that the contest is over we can share our first & second round projects. I submitted this card for my first round...
Floral Thank You
Supplies: die (Spellbinders Shapeabilities Daisy Heads),patterned paper (Webster's Pages),  cabochons (Making Memories), stamp (Unity Stamp Co.), pearls (Zva Creative)

...and this layout for my second round entry...
100% Genuine Friends
Supplies: die (Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles), patterned paper & alphabet (Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup Collection), rub-on (Chatterbox), cardstock & felt (Papertrey Ink)

Well, I hope you all are having a good week! I still have a spiral rose tutorial in the hopper... my husband headed out of town for business so my girls & I decided to have an impromptu painting party to convert their toddler room into a "big kids" room. Needless to say, its taking longer than I anticipated to cover their room in Punch colored paint. When its finished (probably a month from now) I'll post picts!
