Hello friends! I've got some big news to share today :) I'm officially the director of online/social media and designer for Love My Tapes! I am so excited to be taking this new direction in my crafting career. Whew did I just say career? You mean I can stay home with my kids and have a job doing what makes me happy? Yes I can! I love my hobby, it really fullfills me and yet gives me an identity other than mommy and I am so thankful to all my supportive friends who have been there for me and share in my excitement.
When I had the opportunity to attend CHA last year with Unity Stamp Company I had a conversation with Angela about how I wanted to find a way to be able to do what I love and still be home with my kids. She gave me some amazing advice and I really took her words to heart. I love that she is so easy to talk to and a really genuine person. It's been a great journey the past year so far, achieving a goal of mine and becoming a member of the Imaginisce Design Team as well as designing for Paper Posies, Jacksonbelle Embellishments and Get Sketchy.
And now becoming a part of the Love My Tapes team. I have Bree to thank for that connection. I guess the 130.00 phone call was worth it huh girl!
So I officially launched the Love My Tapes blog today and the Facebook fan page. Be sure and stop by to enter our drawing! You could win some of our fabulous double sided adhesive!

Now for something scrappy, here's a layout I scrapped for this month's sketch challenge at Paper Secrets. It's base on a sketch from the super talented Becky Fleck and I used the new Pink Paislee Queen Bee line I got a sample of from CHA. I covered the Pink Paislee booth and new releases at Winter CHA on my Examiner page today. If you want to win some new Pink Paislee then hop on over to my column here.

Other supplies: Prima flowers and say it in crystals, Heidi Swapp clock mask, Pink Paislee chipboard and rub on.
Rub-on reads: The future belongs those who believe in the beauty of their dreams-Eleanor Roosevelt.

And a little close up of my journaling.
I am buying this entire collection and the Artisan collection when I can get my hot little hands on it!! I've never been a fan of yellow but I am now...giggle.
And as if things couldn't get any better...

I could hardly believe my name was posted there! Thanks so much to the amazing designers and team at 2Sketches4You!
Well friends I think I've bent your ears enough for one day, see you tmr with a new challenge from Jacksonbelle! Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats!! That is terrific news! You are so fortunate to get to stay at home and earn an income doing what you love. Someone, I'm not sure who said, "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life."
