I tried my best . . .

And that's all you can do. Didn't make it to the Honor Roll for Class 4 at Top Designer. Like I said, this last one was a real struggle for me; restraint is definitley not my forte'. There can only be one winner and they have to go from over 200 entries to 1 winner in just 6 classes! The entries continue to be jaw-dropping, amazing, inspirational and just down right fabUlous! I'll continue to sit in on the classes and soak up everything I can. Good luck to those who continue on in the competition.

Just under the wire!

Phew! Got this one in just under the wire! Class 3 of Top Designer's theme was "Less is More" and for someone whose motto is "Gotta have my stuff," this was so much brain damage! Miss Sri Sams taught an amazing class with so much to learn. Here's my oh so restrained version . . .

Oh, yeah!

I made it to the Honor Roll for admission to Class 3 of the Bad Girls Top Designer competion! All of the entries were amazing, inspiring, inventive and just down right FabUlous. We've been asked to come to class early tomorrow; can't wait to see what's in store!

Funky Vintage and then some!

I recently found Gypsy Rose Paperie via ScrapScene (gotta love them) and if you're into funky vintage, you really need to check them out! This site is over flowing with talent, inspiration, Rak's and free downloads. They're offering kits on a first come, first serve basis and are currently offering "strip teases" of 2 upcoming releases. I've already pre-ordered Haute Couture and am beside myself with anticipation of all the goodies coming my way.

Woo Hoo!

I made to the Honor Roll for class 2 at Bad Girls Top Designer contest and the competition is heating up!

Wow! This is the first post on my first blog! I am actually checking off one of my New Year's resolutions! Ok, the only one so far, but I still have a couple of months! LOL

I've been seriously scrapping since February of 2007 and like all scrap artists I was hooked before I knew it. I love all the choices and all the companies but most of all I love the the community. I have found so many wonderful people while surfing the Net for the latest and greatest and hard-to-find products. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, I have come in contact with has been so helpful, welcoming and willing to share! How refreshing in a time where everyone is so busy and involved in their own lives. There's something about scrapbookng . . . it's connecting with the past, enjoying the current moments and the hope of what the future holds. I hope my blog inspires all of these things as others have inspired me.

Now, speaking of inspiration . . . have you visitied Bad Girls Kits and joined in their 2008 Top Designer contest?


Registration for the competion is now closed, but you can still participate by following the classes & posting your projects in the gallery. This site is oozing with talent and inspriation and is a must see! The first class was taught by the fabUlous Miss Carrie Fennell on layering and here's my entry . . .

They will announce the "Honor Roll" tonight which entitles entrants to continue on in the competition. Good luck to everyone!
