Top o' the morning everyone! A few things to share today!

First of all, congratulations all the new Spring/Summer '09 designers over at Citrus Tree Studio (isn't that such a refreshing name? (♥ it!)! Looking forward to their work and inspiration! Check out the complete Design Team!


Congrats also goes out to a few lucky gals who will be Guest Designing this summer. Yep, that #2 is me! YAY! :)



I'm looking forward to Guest Designing this summer!

Okay, a few cards and a layout to share with you. As always, click image for a larger view...

I've scrapped this photo in a mini album last summer but I really wanted it on a layout for my album. This is a family photo (everyone on my Mom's side, minus my cousin who couldn't make it) taken last summer on our family vacation (sort of reunion) in the Smokey's. On the last day, we set up my tripod and camera and had at it.

I made this card for Jan's "Many Manufacturers" Challenge at Scrapbooker Online. Obviously the challenge was to use as many MFG's as possible. So I racked my brain, trying to figure out how I could get a load of MFG's on here. I ran the card through my Sizzix with the Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder and to get as many MFG's as possible, I got all my individual bags of scraps out (sorted by MFG) and then used a small circle punch to punch various MFG's patterned papers, typing them all out when I used them, lol. I ended up using 45 different MFG's and won the challenge! YAY! Thanks Jan!

I made this for a friend who I thought might need a little pick-me-up this week. It went postal yesterday!

I think that's all for today. Off to run some errands and enjoy the sunshine! Looking forward to rising temps at the end of this week!

Congrats on making a GDT spot, Nicole! That is fabulous. Just a little while to wait, and then you'll have a ton of fun.
Your projects are really, really beautiful! Love the layout with the die-cut paper and those cool clouds/trees you've got going. And I'm totally awe-struck by your cool manufacturer challenge card. Your design idea is absolutely fabulous, and it looks amazing. Just amazing. And your butterfly card is super cute, too. Love the "going postal" line.
