Check it out! This was a gift to me by my most awesome designer friend Christine Nash -- you may know her as the creator of Simply Stitching (and if you are in the need of stitching, she has awesome stuff at SOTB , Digitals and 3Scrapateers and Pixel-Expression)

It was made by a talented designer Rina Kroes -- check out her store at 3scrapateers -- if you are looking for a unique avatar of your own, here is where you can get them.

Check it out -- Pocket Kings, I am known around town as the Queen of Kings, so this is so very appropriate! Love it!!

More rectangles

We are now 31 of 290 or 10.5 % and deadline has passed. Let's cross our fingers that lots of these rectangles move to the next round!!

I did it -- Way outside my norm

OK, since I was struggling -- I stepped back and thought to myself why did I enter the Ultimate DigiScrapper? Well, to get some LOs done (accomplished -- I have 3 new LOs just from yesterday), to have some fun and to maybe challenge myself to learn some new things. SOOOOOO, I decided this morning, I have always wanted to try LOs that have a lot of brush work or blending. I tried once or twice before and I always gave up -- so I made myself complete this one. I was still a little unsure on whether to enter it or not, because it is so outside my comfort zone that I don't even know it is any good -- but I am proud I got it to the point I was even done, so I entered it. I don't imagine with all the entrants I will make it to the next round, but who knows, at least I can say I learned something new :)

Here is my LO

Not much new

Not much new here -- Cassidy has been sick again -- she is running a fever and just not feeling good so I stayed home with her today and tried to balance her and work. Trying to scrap for the Ultimate Digi Scrap challenge but am totally not getting I LO I like enough to upload. Got lots of other LOs done though (or partially) so at least it isn't a waste. I think it is cause I have scrapped all my REALLY good pics I love -- so I am working with ones I "like" and so can't get really enthused. Plus, wow! Have you seen the entrants -- how can I compete. I feel like I need a real WOW rectangle to pop out among all those gorgeous squares. Oh well, we will see, maybe I will get inspired or maybe I will just pass

Lots of updates!

Newest Sketch - #19
Hey guys, here is my latest sketch! As always post or email me with your LO :)

I love to scraplift, so I started a new challenge at Digitals -- it will be monthly. I think I will start one at SOTB as well, but for now, check it out, come scraplift with me (This month happens to be a rectangle scrapper lol)

SPOTLIGHT - maggieandmommy - Chicken Taco Girl

I needed to spotlight this LO for all to see -- this is maggieandmommy's first delve into a rectangle LO. Look at how beautiful it is -- it popped right out of the gallery at me and into my favs to spotlight. I think she has achieved great balance here -- large photo on one side balanced by journalling on the other. Her journaling really brought a smile to my face -- so cute -- and the picture is just perfect. What a gorgeous kit she selected -- and to use B&W photo really makes it pop.
