Some exciting news...

Sunday, February 15, 2009

I am now a DESIGN TEAM MEMBER for the gorgeous Karen at SCRAPBOOK 'N' BITS, I am so excited :-) There was a competition and we had to send in layouts using bright colours, as the DT spot was for someone who could use brights! So I sent off the below layouts and made it to the Top 5, we then had to scrap a male LO using specific criteria that Karen emailed us, my male LO is below too, I was then picked with the gorgeous Monique Follett, who does fantastic work as well, so excited!!!!!!!!!!

Anyhow I will be setting the monthly challenge for March and have a DT kit on the way, can't wait to get started!!!
