Fun News!

Fun news to share but before I do..... a baseball update for everyone! Austin had his first High School baseball game today. Edmonds Woodway over Oak Harbor 14-0 in 5 innings. He started at first base, went 3-3 at the plate and brought in 3 RBI's. All his shots were up the middle, in fact one was only 2 feet from clearing the center field fence for a Grand Slam! Wouldn't that have been an amazing way to start his high school career! It was a fun game in gloriously warm 60 degree weather --- amazing!

Okay ---- enough of the proud mother talk ---- there are lots of things going on in scrapbook land today!

I want to give a reminder about the ROCKIN' the Eighties crop over at A Walk Down Memory Lane Design Team Blog. The challenges have all been issued and you have until the end of March to get your designs posted to qualify for a great prize package from Bella Blvd and Lizzie Anne Stamps!

Speaking of Lizzie Anne Stamps - They are the manufacturer of the month over at the store. You will receive 25% all the Lizzie Anne Products you buy this month! I got a chance to play with them for the first time - I choose a very versatile sunflower stamp which I just love! I stamped and heat embossed a bunch of the flowers on different scraps of cardstock - cut out the flowers and centers and added a pop dot for dimension. This is the layout I came up with:


Another reminder for you --- a huge paper crafting garage sale is happening this Saturday at my house! There will be over 15 sellers with more stuff than you can imagine! If you are loval to the Seattle area -- make sure to stop by!


One last fun thing for you - see that new little blue blinkie over on the right? Yep, I am officially a Staffer over at Scrapbook News & Review Magazine! I am very excited to be going all the great folks over there and I can't wait to get started! I want to see all my friends and scrappin' buddies published so make sure to submit those layouts! Here is ther current April call with all the details!

By Style
Family Time
Mother's Day
Shaped Papers

By Style -- In each issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, we feature scrapbook pages by style and skill level. We’re currently looking for pages, either in traditional or digital format, that feature a clearly defined style such as Clean and Simple, Modern and Graphic, Freestyle and Eclectic, Pretty Chic, Whimsical or Fantasy, and more. Please send at least three to five layouts that you feel best represents your work as well as explain in a few brief sentence what style you feel best describes your work.

Baby – There are no two ways about it, baby is often the star of the family, soaking up all the camera time and special moments in the spotlight. This call is for babies from newborn to their first birthday and what we're really looking for is something outside the traditional themes and topics. Think you've got what it takes to jump outside the box? Come show us!

Family Time– Traditions, routines, rules (and breaking them), we want to see your family in all its glory. From happy and lucky to be together to kid chaos and holiday hullabaloo (any holiday will do!).

Graduation – Such a special day and such a special time. It just begs to be memoralized for all time. If you're a proud-as-a-peacock parent of a fabulous graduate (of any age) or even a graduate yourself, we want to see your fabulous creations in any style or color scheme.

Mother's Day– While they know we love them all yearlong, there's nothing like Mother's Day to show her how much we truly care. Whether from a day long ago, just last year, or in preparation for this year, come share your beautiful mother's with us. This call is for any type of project from layouts to altered art and mixed media.

Shaped Papers – They're striking and add a lot of zip and flair to your pages, but a lot of people don't know how to use or shy away from them because they look too complicated to deal with, so come show your fellow scrapbookers how its done! Please include any tips or tricks you have for making them look just right on your pages.

Spring – No other season is met with so much promise and anticipation. This year, we want to see spring in all its splendor, from flowers and pretty dresses to new beginnings and fresh starts.

Style Spotlight: Vintage Chic & Romance – Ethereal, timeless and pretty, Vintage Chic & Romance has a style all its own. If you lean toward this style and want to show off your amazing creations, please send them in. We'd love to ooh and ahh over your pages.
