The Navarro's Meet at Scrapbook Oasis

I had the amazing opportunity to take a class at Scrapbook Oasis this past Monday with the uber-talented Celine Navarro! No, we’re not related and she was quite surprised when I introduced myself. I had a great time, learned some really cool techniques and met people from all over the world who were here to attend CHA and take classes at the local LSS’s.

Where Women Create

This amazing book has now been made into Where Women Create, a quartlery magazine and I won a copy of the first issue from Virture Radio Network! How cool is that! I had just recently purchased the book and then saw an ad for the upcoming magazine. I went to their website and there was a contest to win a copy, so I thought I'd enter. To my surprise, I got an email notifying me I was one of 3 winners! And when my magazine arrived, I saw that it's autographed by each featured artist in the issue! Can't get any more inspired than that!

This is a must have pulication for every creative woman you know; the February issue is out now!

Playing Catch Up

Wow, January just flew by! The creative juices have been over flowing and I'm on more than a roll! I spent the 2 weeks between Christmas and New Year's working on scrappy gifts and met all my deadlines. One of them was this mini book; I only did the covers and left the inside to be completed by the receipient. She's a blue girl and she definitely "gets it".

It's a pretty complicated process to achieve this look, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Next, I've been working on a "top secret" project that's been taking up all my free time and I couldn't be happier! I hope to reveal it very soon.
