Exciting News & a List

I’ve got some exciting news! I have just accepted a guest spot on a CT for ScrapMatters! Scrap Matters is a new shop that is opening tomorrow, Saturday, Sept 29 at 10:00 PDT. It’s run by Andrea of Andilynn Designs. It features designs by Andilynn Designs, Britt-ish Designs & SHAR-ing Creations.
I think I'm a bit crazy to take on a CT spot with my life being so crazy - but Andrea has asked me twice now, and well I have a hard time saying no! Just kidding. I really love her designs (& Britt-ish too). Andrea was actually one of the first people to notice my blog back when I started it back in April, and has always been so sweet & helpful to me. When she asked me again, I thought that this might be a good opportunity to "force" myself to scrap on a more regular basis. Now I have the opportunity to get some great kits, learn from some pro's & catch up on my scrapping! I'm really excited to be a part of it, especially when they are all so excited to open up their new shop.

They have actually worked on a huge and fabulous collaboration kit for their grand opening. Check it out (I'm completely in love with that red bow - I've got to work it into a page!):
























They are giving away this awesome collaboration kit with any purchase of $10 for one week (until 11:59 pm 10/6/07). To celebrate Scrap Matters Grand Opening, everything is on sale for 30% off!

















So, run on over right now to register, and come back at 10:00 PDT Saturday for lots of fun! There will be some awesome free gifts for sharing your LO’s in the gallery & participating in the first challenge. Check out the details tomorrow, and if you participate, you could be entered in a drawing to win the store!!!!

Now, for my first official CT LO’s. I used “Missed the Bus” by Britt-ish Designs for my DD1’s first day of preschool. Okay, I’m sort of cheating here. I actually had this LO almost done before Andrea asked me to be on the Scrap Matters CT, but I really wanted to post this LO, cause I think it’s really cute :-)

For my next LO, I used Vibrant Autumn – A Scrap Matters Collaboration Kit.
