Some Exciting News!!!

Monday, December 29, 2008


I am so excited to share that I was chosen for the Scrapping Out Loud Design Team!!! I must confess I woke up at 3 am the day of the announcement and snuck a peek to see if the results had been posted yet because I was really hoping that I could be part of such an awesome challenge blog. You'd think I was a kid on Christmas morning checking to see if Santa had arrived...LOL My heart sank when the results were still not posted but I went back to bed and my DH asked what was I doing up to which I of course replied "getting a drink of water honey" I lay there thinking of how fun it would be to challenge myself further in the coming months if I wasn't selected. My husband always tells my son Scott it's from our losses we learn more than from the wins. I totally believe that and am excited for what 2009 has to bring for myself as well as my family.

Well when I did get up the next morning and checked the blog again I of course had to blink twice when I saw my name. I can not tell you how proud I am to be a part of the Scrapping Out Loud Team and I am really excited to get to know the other ladies who were also selected! There were 6 of us!!

A big thanks to the Scrapping Out Loud girls, Jessica, Denise and Melissa for giving me the opportunity!!

So here is my submission layout. I am really proud of this layout. I really stretched myself to create this layout with techniques that I really feel are my style. I am big on distressing and tearing my papers and crinkling for a worn look. I am so lucky to have such a cute daughter that is so photogenic! All the stamped images are Unity Stamp Company and the paper is by Sasafrass Lass.
