2 Days And Counting

Until I pick up my new slr!!! I have decided on the canon rebel. I was torn between the Nikon D60 and the canon rebel. Basically it's the same camera with the same functions. What sold me is that the Nikon doesn't have LCD capabilities after you take your photo. I need this feature. Maybe I have become spoiled since cameras went digital but I need to know before I upload if my picture came out.

Here are my last 2 pages using the bound + d/termined "Word of the Wise" collection. I still have lots of paper and die cuts left :D.

For this page I used a lot of the die cuts and decorated it with bling and flowers.

On this page I used the slice to cut out my grass, leaves and rake.

Sassy Scrapper July Kit Reveal

Today was the official reveal for the July kit. Our sponser is bound + d/termined. Here are my first 2 pages using this gorgeous kit.

This is my first page titled "Bare Necessities" I used the PP to cut out my butterflies, flowers and bug. I also used the frame a little differently.

For this page titled "I Love Today" I used a lot of the die cuts that came with the kit. I also used the PP to cut the arrow. And used the quote as my title.

Check back in a few days I will have another 2 pages to reveal.

Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs

July has been an exciting time. It is with great pleasure that I announce another DT Spot at Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs (MOD Squad) for short. I am SO excited to have made my first manufacturer DT!! This is the announcement on their blog today.

Drum Roll Please....

We are thrilled, we are excited, we are beside ourselves....WE HAVE A NEW DESIGN TEAM!

First I must say, this was by far, the most difficult decision we have had to make in a very long time. We had over 50 very talented applicants apply for 14 positions on our MOD Squad. Which means we had to disappoint a lot of very talented crafters. This is never an easy task and certainly one we don't enjoy. But the good news is we were also able to spread joy and happiness to 14 incredible ladies (not leaving the guys out here - we only had female applicants...). We also have two members returning from the original team, to make it a 16 member team.

So without further ado, we would like to introduce the new MOD Squad (aka: the Midnight Oil Design Squad). You can find links to their blogs along the left hand side...

Gloria Stengel
Debbie Fitzgerald
Shannon Morgan
Jennifer Hansen
Marisa Faylim
Dolores Cancel
Lori McCausland
Carolyn Lontin
Pamela Jordan
Valerie Chmielak
Naureen O'Neale
KellyJean Gettelfinger
Amy Oxford
Vickilyn Crawford
Erica Hofstetter
Tina Guigui

These wonderful ladies will begin introducing themselves here in the following days. You can also find out more about them at their personal blogs. Then beginning August 1st each of these ladieswill begin posting projects, tips and techniques for your enjoyment right here at the MOSD blog!

Congratulations ladies and thanks in advance for all your hard work!

Their blog is posted on the left. Please check it out!

Great News

Starting this month I begin my term with Sassy Scrappers! Once again there is lots of goodies to be won. As soon as I get the ok I will post the goodies and the sponser. You won't be disappointed. Stay tuned!

A Big Thanks

I started scrapbooking in Sept. 08 and if it weren't for the help of Scrapbook Star I don't think I would have ventured far in this hobby. I was a little overwhelmed at first but the wonderful ladies at SS were with me every step of the way. Scrapbook Star is my LSS and I am not only a full participant on the message boards but I am actively partcipating in their crops & classes. I have become great friends with quite a few members and my life has forever changed. Thank you Sam for your patience and your amazing store!!! Big hugs!

Welcome To My Blog!

Hello everyone! I have been thinking for a while that I need a blog and considering all the amazing things that have happened I have decided I need one. I am a little nervous because I was never a blogger before. I will certainly make mistakes but I look forward to this new venture.
