I still can't believe it....I made the Design Team over at Lotus Paperie!! They made the announcement yesterday and I'll be introduced tomorrow!! I am just SO stinkin' excited! They're a challenge blog where you can find a new challenge every Friday.....here is my take on #96! My term will run for 6 months, from Dec-May, so I'll be getting a LOT of scrappin' done!
PS~The current challenge over there is #97, and it's a 6x12....I'll be working on that today with my layouts for the Survivor challenge and for Gutter Girlz. That's why I'm up so early, lol!
Before I go, I'd like to share a story with you. Last weekend I went to a crop with my friend Miranda, and somehow convinced her to go to the thrift store with me afterword, with the promise that we would NOT look at clothes. Because then we'd be lost in the racks for hours, and we were both kinda anxious to get home. Well....while browsing through the "junk" shelves, I found the most BEAUTIFUL vintage baby scale! My breath literally caught in my throat, and I'm pretty sure my heart stopped for a moment. Unfortunately the price tag was a bit more than I was willing to spend. So with a heavy heart I left it on the shelf, thinking there might be a small chance it would still be there when the store had a 50% off day. Imagine my surprise when Miranda, after asking me several times if I were crazy for being so head-over-heels in love with a slightly rusted and dusty old scale, decided she wanted to buy it for me! So THANK YOU, Miranda, you are my HERO! I cleaned up my beautiful treasure, and it's currently holding some of my craft books. Isn't it beautiful? *sigh*
