Memorable Seasons Design Team

I just have to share my very exciting news....

I was chosen to be a part of the Memorable Seasons Design Team!!!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for this opportunity! For years MS has been one of my favorite places to be and to be chosen to be added to the DT is very exciting! Jill, the owner, has created such an amazing site with incredible products in her store...not to mention her incredible sales which she one going on right now called a Celebration Sale. You really should check it out. And then add on such amazing members and DT members who wouldn't want to be more involved?! Anyway...thanks to Jill and her DT for chosing me to join them! I hope to do them proud!

The Scrappiest and The Sweet Peach Crop Shop

Liz, at the Scrappiest, always has fun sketches to play with. This time I decided to do one she created for The Sweet Peach Crop Shop.

Here is the sketch she created:

And here is my layout using this sketch. It's more of my Paris photos from last year.

Be sure and check out more of Liz's great sketches at her blog.

Trend Watch Challenge

It's the first week of the month already and it's time for the new challenges at Challenge Masters. Mine is the Trend Watch challenge and this month I decided to focus on the trend of butterflies. I see them everywhere and we're seeing them more and more from the manufacturers. Add that to the amazing choices of dies cuts and cartridges that are available with all the many sizes and styles, and you've got many options to find butterflies. So this month's challenge is:

Use at least 3 butterflies on your layout and using pp with butterflies on it doesn't count. Other than that, have fun.

Oh, and to add an optional challenge if you're willing to accept it: use newsprint somewhere on your layout. That is another fun trend that is big out right now. You'll see what I used newsprint when I cut out one of my butterflies.

Here is my layout as an example and you'll see I used a lot of butterflies in several sizes:

I look forward to seeing what you create! Be sure and check out all the other challenges posted this week at Challenge Masters! So many fun challenges I'm sure you'll find several that will interest you.
