ScrapGal is just awesome…
I’m not sure how many of you know about ScrapGal but it is my favorite online community and I have to make sure everyone knows about it. I also have to say Carly (owner) has the best online service. I think Carly must go to the post office daily to ship orders. When I place an order it is sent out the next, if not the very same day and is at my door two days later. Really, I don’t know how she does it. Carly always has the latest and greatest products. Dina is an awesome Design Team Coordinator. She is so creative as well as inspiring. You should see what Dina does with Hambly! Just awesome. Dina creates the newsletter each month for ScrapGal and the March newsletter has a great technique that I can’t wait to try. You really need to check it out. Here are a few layouts I created using some of the new BasicGrey Stella Ruby and Scenic Route
I am working on a challenge at ScrapGal but won’t have it completed until next week as I am leaving for Beaumont again tomorrow. Ansley and I are going to enjoy a few days of Spring Break visiting everyone. Last weekend was too quick a trip. When we head back to Frisco Tuesday, my niece Amanda will come back with us and stay until Sunday.
This week I sent my first freelance assignment to BHG Scrapbooks etc. I was pretty excited about it too, to say the least. The layout I created was for the “Make it Yours” column and will be in the Aug/Sept. issue. I guess you will have to wait a few months before you get to see it.
I also finished up an assignment for Maya Road. I can show it to you after the 15th. It is a banner for my new niece that is due the end of May. I created it using the Maya Road blossoms chipboardcoasters, chipboard letters (New York lowercase) , foundations journaling stamps, crushed velvet ribbons and velvet ric rac. I painted the chipboard letters using Making Memories paint and their new glitter glaze.
Well I guess I have put off washing clothes long enough. I really do need to get busy washing and packing. Oh one other thing… I have a little surprise… some of my paper dolls will be for sale starting in April. I plan on creating some off and on to sell. They will come signed by me and ready for you to place in a layout, shadow box or on a canvas. These sweet girls will be wearing their Springtime best as well as show their unique personalities. You will get to meet Isabella Kate, Madelyn Grace, Ansley Danae, Terri Lee and Amanda Lee. They are excited about making their debut. More about this when I return.
Have a great weekend and don’t forget to Spring forward an hour Sunday morning.
