I am so humbled and honored to announce that i'm serving as the guest designer for the June kit from A Page in Time!! I'm so very excited, first because all the entries in the contest were outstanding, I think i would have had to flip a coin to choose, or dice or something! Secondly, because i find myself being drawn to kits that contain several lines in one, not several matching lines but several different ones. I just get a lot more out of it that way, as much as i LOVE having several of the same line. APIT is unique because they DO have several of each line and still have 3 different kits contained in the one kit. I'll be posting my designs here as soon as the reveal is up so keep an eye out! :)

sharing some things i made this weekend...

This weekend i did a cyber crop at A Page in Time and it was a BLAST! i only was able to scrap a tiny bit friday and saturday and then most of sunday, so i got the bulk done sunday. I was shooting for quick and easy this time because it was a crop, LOL, and also though because for the first time in ages, i'm actually quite behind where i want to be. i went through my month in review books and realized that i'm missing August, October and November of last year and jan and feb of this year :-( not cool i need to step it up! Anyway, so this took a big chunk out of some pages i've been intending on doing, yay! and i'll be posting one thing i won next :-)

Technique- sharing art with your children.

I'm so hoping my mother in law doesn't see this for a while because this is something i made as a gift to her. i wanted to find a way of incorporating the children into this book, because Children's art is timeless, and they SO love joining me in the scrappy endeavor and i so often brush them off, it so messy.. my personal weakness. I actually made this for a design team project but it didn't work out the way i'd planned, so i'm sharing here with you all instead. I wanted to come up with a new concept for a minibook. Minibooks tend to be the same old same old. I wanted to think of something unique. Cuz i'm just like that so anyway, here it is! I used the new cosmo cricket blackboard, both the Abby book, and the Fleurist shapes... which by the way, the package of those is HUGE you get a TON of them. very good deal. The coolest feature of the blackboard is how you can write on it and it just pops.... i wanted to emphasize that with this book.
