And your last pitstop is here at my lil blog in Oregon!

So enough blabbing....and how about seeing a Christmas card that I created for Stephanie alllll the way Down Under in Aussie? Steph is bright and funky and fun, just like our Sweet Season line. I could swear this line was made just for her. Happy Holidays to you and your Steph:
 Check out our ADORABLE Berries!!! These are such a fun treat to play with. I wrapped Webster's Pages Vintage Inspired Netting around the bottom to make a cute little holder.
 And the star of the show, drum roll please,ddtdttdtdtdtdtdddtdtdttdttt Webster's Pages Stamps! The "Sweet Season" image is obviously from our "Sweet Season" stamp set and the adorable bird in the birdcage is from the "Merry Christmas Home" stamp set.

Webster’s Pages is pleased to announce their first open design team call!

We will be looking for members to be on our team that uses traditional products as well as looking for members for our first Digital Design Team. The Digital Design team will work exclusively with our digital products. Paper crafters that consider themselves “hybrid” paper crafters and use both traditional supplies as well as digital images, should apply for the “traditional” team but mention they are hybrid paper crafters. Those applying specifically for the digital team should mention this. The application requirements for both teams are the same.

International designers are welcome to apply to both teams.

Specific requirements and compensation details are provided upon invitation to the team. However we would like to mention that regular creation of projects and online participation are requirements for this team, and compensation is provided through a generous amount of product as well as monetary compensation for hard copy published items and trade show/advertising assignments. The term will be until the end of 2011.

Please note that Webster’s Pages Design Team members will be limited to being on no more than 3 paper manufacturing teams total.

We are envisioning a team of 15 members with 3 exclusively on our digital team.

Explain in one paragraph why you would be a great addition to the Webster’s Pages design team.

Include a link to any online galleries (you participate on (please include your user name and make sure that online galleries do not have a login requirement) and your blog (if you have one).

Attach a scan or photograph of 3 paper craft projects that you feel best represent your style. Please make sure you include 1 scrapbook page, 1 card or altered item/home decor project, and the 3rd project can be a scrapbook page, card or altered item/home decor project. Images must be no larger than 600 x 600 px. We do ask that if possible you use Webster’s Pages products on these 3 projects in order for us to get a sense of how you would work with our style of products.

Please include your name, address, phone number and email address. Confirmation emails will NOT be sent. Notifications will be made by email or telephone in January.

Applications must be received by December 31st.

We are a very happy team at Webster's Pages & we value our Design Team tremendously! We are growing in leaps & bounds and we would love to share in our excitement with you. If you have any questions on applying, please send an email to with subject QUESTION.

WHOOO WHOOO WHOO Changed Their Blog Background?

Ummmm ME!
Isn't that owlie the cutest lil dude EVAH! Totally love need to head there and pimp your blog with some of their cute designs!
Life has been busy as'er a happy medium to be seen...but what fun is life if you are totally bored. Simply have no time to be bored.

Lil puppy Sammy is keeping me busy every day. He is the cutest lil sucker ever and I love this frickin dog 100 times more than I ever thought I would. It's pretty ridiculous at this point. He is so darn spoiled but I just simply cant resist his fluffy lil face. Could you?

Zoe is doing well in 4th grade. Skinny and cute as ever. She amazes me every day with the crazy things that come out of her mouth. And though she can be the stinkiest poop sometimes, she always redeems herself with her wit and charm. This kid is flat out hilarious and too much like her mother.

Scrapbooking is as crazy busy as it has ever been...but yet I do less scrapping now than ever before...go figure. Heading to my friend Pam's house this Friday for a much needed girls day of scrapbooking. Have no idea what I am going to make but I think I will play around with my large, overflowing box of Webster's Pages goodies and some of my Shimmerz Paints!

And if blogger would have been kind enough to oblige me, then I would have shared some proof positive, that I do indeed still know how to scrapbook, but alas, it isn't wanting to that will have to wait for a different blog post on another date.

There shall be more updates in the near future...sooo many things going on with both scrappy work and personally that there is going to be oodles to share, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy my fabulous taste in music LOL!

Scarlet Lime is having it's new kit release today and we are adding some amazing new design team members, so we are ready to celebrate and ummm GIVE things away....Like perhaps the new October Main Kit in my instance! Check it out:

So how about you all leave a me a kind vote of confidence that I can indeed make more than one blog post in the next 6 months and why you need this Scarlet Lime kit. I will draw a winner later this month!

It's a new record!

Twice, yes two postings in one month!
Gonna take a few minutes of time out of my day to update a bit.

A few fun opportunities came my way this month:

The first in the form of being asked to be a guest designer for a new Japanese Scrapping Blog called Scrap in Japan. I received a random email out of the blue from a very sweet gal named Yuko Abe asking if I would like to participate in a sketch blog that she started. I couldn't resist and wanted to be a part of something so fun! I created this sketch

and this layout to accompany the sketch. I used Shimmerz new Teresa Collins Pearlz in Ballet Slipper Pink and a toilet paper tube and some other round objects as stamps to create the circles. The cutie pie baby girl, is the granddaughter of my dear friend Pam!

Check out what the design team members came up with based off of the sketch. Some really cool and creative ideas. I just love seeing how different people all over the world have varying styles.

My next bit of fun news is my recent promotion as Design Team Coordinator for Shimmerz Paints! I am really excited to be taking a new role in Stacey's company and really believe in this product. And I get to work alongside my favorite gal pal, Jeni Boisvert, who is the Ed Team Coordinator. The two of us=TROUBLE!

And my last bit of scrappy updating are my layouts for this month's Scarlet Lime Kit! The colors were AMAZING. Fun and bright with some black and white thrown in for good measure.
Here is the April "Morning Sunshine" kit:

And here are 2 of my layouts I created with the kit:

I have another layout to share using the kit but am saving it for a special challenge. For information on how I achieved the cool paint effect on my last photo here, check out the Shimmerz Blog early next week!

Now back to my regular crazy schedule....
talk to you all soon, if anyone is out there!

Hello Old Friend.

Good to see you again. It's been a while. A pretty dang long while.

Well, December was a blur. I cooked and baked up a storm. I can't remember EVER making as many goodies and yummy munchies in my life. We spent lots of time with family and friends and I can easily say this was the best Christmas that we have had in this house during the past 7 years of living here.

January has started off full blast. Booster Club has pretty much taken over as our busy season approaches. On January 22nd from 7-9pm we will be hosting our first Sock Hop at the school. Admission is $5 per family. We will be selling rootbeer floats and popcorn. There will be lots of dancing and contests and prizes to be won.

February 5th from 6:00-8:00, I am putting together our first Art Walk at Fullerton IV. Our Booster Club has paid for a local artist-in-residence, Victoria Carnate, to come teach several different art projects to EVERY child in our school. Now talk about an undertaking. This woman is incredible! The projects have been amazing, the kids have been having a blast and Victoria and I are ready to drop at the end of each day. But we will be featuring the kids' fantastic art in a show. Punch, hot cocoa and CHOCOLATE will be involved!

THEN, coming up in April...our Annual Bingo Night with our BIGGEST PRIZE EVER! Can't divulge all the information right now, but it does concern a certain mouse with really big ears!!!!

Now onto SCRAPBOOKING! Every time this year, I experience burn out and just an over all lack of mojo and inspiration. I blame it on the rainy Oregon weather. But being able to work with such fabulous products and people definitely helps bring on the mojo!

CHA is right around the corner and the sneaky peekies..they are going to be happening ANY DAY now. So if'n I still have any readers, stay tuned!
Well, lookie what I have in my pocket right now..hmmm what is this?
Is it a sneak peek right now? whyyy yes, yes it is:

These lil gems are headed to my house as we speak and I can't wait to get my hands on the Vibey wonder of it all. Check out that COLOR and SHIMMER on it!

And now that January is here. That means Scarlet Lime has a new kit out!

Here are my layouts using both of these kits:

Our guest designers this month are the owners from Glitz! Make sure to check out their use of the kit and the rest of the amazing design team in the Scarlet Lime Gallery!

So that is all my scrappy goodness for now, but next week...the peeks, they shall BEGIN!
Stay tuned!
