a new Layout and some other things

so i went back to blog for sketches, the one i tried out for the DT. she had a really cool sketch, i decided to try it and then you email it to her and she puts it on her blog. also entries have a chance to win a $10 gift card to 2peas. so here is her blog its called pink sketches
so here is my entry kiss, i am kinda happy how it came out, things used were 3birds, a homemade embellie, stickles, stitching rub-on's and a handcut title.

also i have to give kiddos to the 3birds company. i bought some stuff and i really like their products but there was a strong odor, but i got an awesome email from the company and they are replacing the kit and a few goodies, yay for cool and awesome customer service! so i hope everyone has a great weekend!

phew what a weekend!

so i had my whole family here for the weekend and it was awesome to see them all and we had a blast! we did work on things for my sisters wedding so it was productive! I did get a chance to do some scrapbooking before they got here so i will share those soon.

but i did pick 2 new girls for the design team. we had so many applications and so many talented ladies it was a hard decision. we need a new scrapbooker each month of a guest spot so if you werent picked please dont be upset and i am sure i will be contacting you for a future guest dt spot.

i cant believe my cafemom group Let's Scrap is going to be 1 august 31st. there have been some bad but mostly good. i have met some awesome ladies and have so much fun. so in honor of us turning one we are hosting a birthday party august 26-28. so if you can come over and check it out. we are going to scrapland with a christmas theme should be fun!

so i hope you all had a great weekend and happy scrapping!

didnt make it:(

so i figured i would try and attempt to try out for another dt, for those that know me i tried a few years ago and got cheated-any ways its been awhile so i figured what the hay! well tonight i saw that i was not chosen. i am not going to lie, i am upset but what can i do about it. i did create my own design team with a few good girlfriends so i hope that will take off. also i run a group on cafemom and its our year birthday at the end of august so we are planning a crop for the 26-28th and we are traveling to scrapland and doing christmas in august. so this should be fun, kathy is coming up with some really good ideas

well its after 11 and i really wanted to scrap tonight but i am tired. so i am going to finish chatting with the girls and head to bed.

happy scrapping!

wow has it really been that long?

since last time i blogged? i think my last post was in June. so much has been going on, but again i am making goals and one of them is to blog once a week. i have really cool news i have started my own design team. i run a scrapbooking group over at cafemom so its me and my admins. also, every month we will have a guest dt. we are not offical or anything but hopefully some day we get there.

i did have a page goal last month of 15 pages and i was 7 short:( i set the same goal this month! now that my sisters bridal shower is over and we are not going on vacation this month i should be able to hit the goal. i do have to start on wedding favors for her though. i will share some LO's i did recently.

well i have to start another blog for the lets scrap design team, so i am going to do that before bed. thanks to everyone who reads my blog and hope you will check out our design team's blog. also here is a pic of my mom and her girls!
