Have you seen this?!? Yay! Oh, happy day! I'm beyond thrilled to be selected for this team. I mean, have you checked out all their new goods? Yummy, glittery Artsylicious embellies. Flocked and foiled papers. What's not to love? Plus, I get to work withLisa...one of my all-time favorite crafters (congrats Lisa!) Can't wait to jump in, and get my feet wet with this new team! And, now that I'm free to share my submissions, here they are:
I disassembled a mini-album, and made it into a wall hanging of our family tree. I was trying to drum up an idea that was an "outside the box" use of their product. I love how it turned out, it was super fun to make. I know you can't see all of the details here, so you can check it out up close and personal here. All of the finalists had their own challenge to complete. Mine was to use their Botanico product to create a LO.
I wanted to introduce myself, so to speak, to the panel of judges, and this was the perfect LO design to incorporate a bit of ALL the papers from the Botanico line. Those were my two required projects. The gals from Chatterbox were so generous with the amount of goodies they sent, I could have created a ton of stuff. But, time and other commitments didn't allow me to complete as much as I would have liked. I did use up some odds and ends to decorate this little papier mache box I had been hanging on to forever.
Anyway, this has been a totally fabulous week so far! I also won the latest challenge at OLW. Until this, I have yet to win any challenge that I have participated in. Truth be told, it has been a long while since I have even submitted to a challenge site. So glad I did...might have to make it more of a regular thing again.
How about some more paper pretties? Here's a peek at my final LO for my Guest DT spot at Lotus Paperie. I just want to thank Vanessa for inviting me to play along this month! I really enjoyed all of the challenges.
And, now that I've posted that, I realize that I forgot to post last week's LO:
Well, I'll leave you with a really cool link: Vanilla Joy. This whole week, she is hosting some really generous crafting/scrapbooking giveaways. You have to check it out! Yesterday's prize was a Cricut!
Be sure to check out her blog for a chance to win! Bestest of luck! And, hope your week is off to as good of a start as my own. :0)
BTW...none of the aforementioned tidbits of excitement were regarding the good news referenced in the previous post. I'll leave you on the edge of your seats for a few more weeks on that one. Tee hee!
