I have been Chosen - Twice!!

On Tuesday I posted a new LO that I had done for the YMBD 92 days of summer contest. It is the last LO for the contest and I used a quick album page from the Scrappers Guide. The Quick album pages were created by one of the design team members (jwhite) and the kit was created by Gina Miller. I love designing pages, but sometimes I use the quick album templates as they are fun and give me ideas for creating pages of my own as well.
Anyway, Heather over on the YMBD forum chose this LO (scroll down to the previous post) as her gallery find for this month. What an honor - and if that isn't enough - I also won the early bird prize for completing and posting weeks 9-12 by the deadline date. Here is a picture of the goodies that are coming my way!

How cool is that? Here is a description of what is in the package:

Five glossy page inspiration and how-to books
•"Out of the Album" (scrapbook and paper projects)
•"Big Bad Brads" (scrapbooks, cards & papercrafts)
•"Ribbon & Trim" (projects for home and scrapbooking)
•"Clear Albums for Scrapping"
•"Classy & Clear" (cards, invitations, thank you notes)

Plus you get 3 CD's for digital scrapbooking:
•Digital Delights (180+ images)
•Digi Templates (240+ images)
•Digi-Elegance (9 Digital Kits includes 357+ images)

I am really looking forward to receiving this entire package - I love how-to books and anything that gives inspiration. I also am very curious about the digital stuff! Wow -

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my excitement!

A New Contest

The last couple of weeks have been busy - catching up on the Layouts for the 92 days of summer - AND completing ALL 13 layouts!! That was certainly a contest that challenged me every week. The last layout is one of my favorites. I used the newest Scrappers Guide Premier kit for my layout - utlizing one of the quick album layouts. Annie and Sam (along with his girlfriend) came down for a visit. It was a wonderful BUSY time spent with them going all over San Diego and revisiting places I had been too many times during my college years at SDSU. I had to work a couple of the days they were here, but Larry was off, so he took them up to Hollywood one of those days.
Now I am on to the next challenge from the YMBD girls - and it is something that I LOVE to do - MAKE CARDS!! Not only that - it is a Christmas Card challenge too - so the whole month of September there is a challenge everyday - yeah I know - I am 8 days late on this one - and haven't even begun any of the challenges - but those Christmas cards that you always say you are going to make to send - and then never do - well, now is your chance to make a go of it. AND, if you don't need/use that many - why not send them to CFH - as our troops will certainly use them!!
I am going to catch up on the challenges - they are simple ones - and then post them later on -
Thanks for stopping by just to check on me and see if I am still alive and kicking - I am!!
Enjoy your day and come back soon to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the spa.
