FAB NEWS!! i was chosen to work on a design team!! what an honor! the team is for a new online store - run over and check it out - Paper Patch Crafts. I came across this store right as it was starting out at the beginning of the year. it is small and specializes in a few things just like i have done in mine. anne has a GREAT selection of prima goodies and kaiser alterable items with more stuff coming in and being added all the time. i am part of a great group of talented ladies and can't wait for my first assignment! one of the greatest things about the store has been the message board. i have really enjoyed it - it is small and warm and friendly and the members are VERY creative.
in other news.....i was reading Amy's blog yesterday and she mentioned a contest on SCS for My Favorite Things stamps - well don't you know i was intrigued and just HAD to play along! the guidelines were that it had to be monochromatic - you could have neutrals like black or brown. so here is what i came up with:
the paper and stamps are Close To My Heart. I have had the paper for about a month and had been wanting to us eit. i thought of it as soon as i read the challenge. the flowers are primas - a gift *waving to anne at paper patch crafts* and i also got to use my new cinnamon stickles for the flower centers and the dots i added on the printed paper piece. the stamp is colored with prisma pencils and gamsol.
