I'm so excited

Hope everyone is having a great day. Sorry I am a little late on posting today, I wanted to wait until I had some good light to take pictures of my layouts. Sadly, it is not a pleasant day here in the midwest. Snow flurries and wind chills below zero will probably keep me indoors today. The sun did peek out for a bit so I was able to get some pictures.

But first I wanted to share some exciting news. If you read my blog once in a while you may remeber that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago about being asked to be a featured designer for the February issue of Crafts 'N Things magazine. Well, I got an e-mail from the editor this last week telling me that she got a call from Sizzix Die Cuts. They saw my work in the magazine and would like me to do design work for them using their product! How cool is that??? I can't wait to start playing with all of their awesome product!

So now for one of those layouts I worked on this weekend. I absolutely love these photos, especially the one of my mom on the top in the middle. :) It makes me smile everytime I look at it. My girls got karaoke machine last year for Christmas and we have had so much time with it.



I used a few of the awesome nested chipboard stars from Magistical Memories on here. I really need to get more of those. The inspiration for the layout came from that cool guitar, also from Magistical Memories. I covered them in red acrylic paint and then covered them with glitter. I experimented with using Mod Podge to hold the glitter on since I was cropping with friends. I think I still like spray adhesive a little better though.


Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog. I appreciate all of you more than you know! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
