Great give away on Vintage Flaire


We have an on going weekly scrap page challenge at Vintage Flaire and at the end of the month everyone who has submitted a page will go into the drawing for a wonderful prize. The neat thing is, if you submit one page in the month your name goes into the drawing once, if you submit two pages in the month then you get two entries and so on. If you participate every week for the month then your name goes in four times - how cool is that? We will be using Random.org to pick our winner. So if you are looking for a great weekly challenge and a chance to win a great prize - pop on over and have a look. We also have other monthly challenges happening for cards, digital pages, ATC's, Shabby Chic and Altered items - all that have prizes - so what are waiting for?? http://vintageflaire.ning.com/

Feburary is here !!!!

I have been good, getting blogging done alot more this year - just need to keep it up. I am going crazy with the waiting on my design team call. I sent my stuff in on the 1st and won't hear anything until the 9th. If (and I say if because there are probably zillions of ladies trying out for it) I make it, then there is another step to get thru ! I really worked hard on theses projects and about drove everyone crazy, but I was happy with what I turned in. Hope they agree !!!! LOL Close To My Heart is going good, I have my first Gathering on the 7th and then another on the 15th. Here's hoping I get another booking from one of them.

It is Official................



I received my starter kit in the mail and I have my first Gathering (scrap party) on Feb.7th. I also started up a Hostess Club where ten ladies get together for a year and each is a hostess for one month. We have nine members but still waiting to hear from a few ladies, so should have it filled soon. I also placed an ad on my home association website so hoping to get peoples attention in my area. Here are pictures of my first Make n Takes .

Design Team

I'm doing it again.....said I was thru with this stuff, but I just love these diecuts and said if I am gonna work my butt off and then be a nervous wreck only to be upset cuz I don't take rejection well - I might as well do it for something I am so addicted to. I am trying out for the design team for Spellbinders. I have four projects to do and a short essay. I have to do a layout, a card, an altered item and a stamping item of my choice. I have cards done (just have to pick which one to submit)and I am finishing up the small details on the altered item this weekend. I am hopeing to do the layout of some of my daughter's wedding pictures and will probably do another card for the stamping project ( I just love making cards)! The essay will be the hardest for me - never been to good at talking about myself. Well wish me luck !!!!!
