We have a winner!

Before I announce the winner of the giveaway (in conjunction with Debbie Does Creations), I just want to thank everyone who came by and began following my blog. I hope that I can entertain you and show you some cool scrap-related stuff. If it weren't for readers like you, this blog would serve no purpose. I would just have to sit around and talk to myself... oh wait, I already do that! Seriously though, I love growing my audience and I am glad that YOU are a part of it!

And now, without further ado, the winner (chosen by is... drumroll, please....


Dana, I think Debbie has already sent you an email, but I will get in touch with you too for an address and such!

Design team reveal: Lucky girl!

Today's the day for the second challenge of March over on Better Living Through Scrapbooking!

This challenge is all about a person that you are lucky to have in your life. I have so many people in my life that I am lucky to have, including my husband, my parents, and my friends, but I am super-lucky to have met my wonderful friend Kerry. She and I get along famously and I love her. She is "wicked awesome"... and yes, she's from the Boston area, so she says "wicked"!

This layout was such a fun one to make. I got to use some of the super-duper, brand new, not even in stores yet paper from the "Wave Searcher" collection by Fancy Pants! It's the fun, summery plaid background paper (thanks to the wonderful people at Fancy Pants for letting me get my mitts on some of this paper!). I also got to use lots of little scraps of paper and ribbon. There's a reason why I don't throw those away; they are just begging to be used on a layout like this one!

Hop on over to Better Living Through Scrapbooking to see the design team's take on the challenge, then make your own and post it on the Facebook page! You could win the monthly prize!

Challenge reveal day!

Today is challenge reveal day over at Better Living Through Scrapbooking!  

Our first challenge this month is a color challenge -- GREEN AND WHITE!

My 2-page layout is about our trip last year to Savannah, GA. Savannah is home to the country's 2nd largest St. Patrick's Day celebration and it shows: shamrocks painted on the streets, green water in the fountains, and brisk business at the Irish pubs! We were lucky to be there the weekend before St. Pat's, so we got to see the cool stuff, like step dancers and bagpipers, but without the crazy crowds.

We would love to see your green and white creations this month. Just make a layout, card, or home decor project featuring the green and white and post it to the Better Living Through Scrapbooking Facebook page by March 21. The creation with the most "likes" will be entered into our quarterly drawing for a prize!

(For my materials list, please see my post at Better Living Through Scrapbooking!)
