I am so excited- my hands are still shaking as I am trying to type this out!! I just found out I was chosen to join the wonderful team at Transparent Touches and Tags- this is my first manufacturer's design team toot!!

Monica has such wonderful products and everyone there is so nice and fun and so very creative!! I am just honored to be included among them! Ive already played with their products and was so quickly smitten- I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her and her company. I just cannot believe I get to be a small part of it!

meeting Flik

I love this picture of the girls meeting Flik, from 'A Bug's Life.' You can tell that Sadie is completely into while Madison seems to really have an issue posing with a huge bug that could probably swallow her in one easy gulp. This photo just makes me giggle. :)

Anyhow, another Scrapbook Stand DT project featuring the June kit and all of it's fun cardstock and Three Bugs in a Rug papers and embellies.

A gift for you...

Just a quick little post showing off my newest creation for The Scrapbook Stand.

Everything from this little friendship jar is from the June kit, which includes yummy Three Bugs in a Rug paper, cardstock, Three Bugs tags & stickers, a fun alterable jar, some ribbons and tons of extra buttons & brads & things.

Sorry I won't have anything new to upload for a little bit- I am working on my Junkitz entries and seriously contemplating Memory Makers Masters again and maybe even the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year contest- which means a lot of my new creations will have to remain unseen for a while yet.... {I am really loving my Junkitz entries and can't wait to share them!)

I will be working on some TSS and ICS design team layouts on my days off, so hopefully I will have some projects to post Wednesday-ish.

Happy Scrapping!

'Me' frame

One of my girlfriends took this photo of me at a recent crop and I decided I wanted to display it in my studio where I am reminded every day to take time to laugh and enjoy life. (I've used this photo recently to do a layout about myself as well... but wanted it up in my room as a constant reminder...)

Scrappin' Trends design team work, using the ever so fabulouso cherryArte papers- our June sponsors.

Only you...

Oh my dear Madison... only *you* would be so bold as to plop down into a sandbox in your 'good' clothes. And only *I* would see the humor in it enough to pause to take pictures of you enjoying yourself. How could I be mad at such a sweet, spunky little girl?
