Hello! Happy Monday! ;)
I have some "firsts" to share with you today. Did you notice my new blog banner? I made it myself! It was my "first" time digi scrapping! I went to Shabby Princess and downloaded one of their free collections, then I got busy! It took me most of yesterday afternoon, but I'm so happy with the result! I think I got the hang of it -- I just may try a digi scrapbook layout soon!
Another "first" -- my first time playing one of the Our Creative Corner challenges. Have you been there yet? What a fantastically talented group of ladies! They have a weekly challenge, and this week's is to use BasicGrey paper on your project.
I pulled out some Romani paper, which led me to another "first" -- my first time using the Papertrey Ink set Garden of Life, designed by Alli Miles. I got this set when it was first released, but it has sat with the rest of my uninked sets until now (why, I don't know!). The flower images coordinate perfectly with the paper, don't you think?!? I pulled out the Bloom Dots Cuttlebug folder, and it all came together from there!
This week is going to be a busy one! Wednesday I'll have the ATS Challenge for you. Also, Wednesday night I get to post my MFT Ambassador Challenge during the My Favorite Things release party at SCS!! I'm so excited!! I hope you'll stop by and play! :) Thursday I'll begin the previews of the July C.C. Designs releases! The images are so cute -- lots of summer fun! :)
Well, I have much to do -- I'd better get busy! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
