So every Monday I get my weekly issue of the Scrapbooking.com newsletter, and in every issue they feature one of the Layouts/artists from that month's issue. So as I was reading through yesterday's issue imagine my SURPRISE when I saw it was ME in this issue!!! It is SO SUPER cool to see yourself in the newsletter and your work featured! If you haven't signed up for their newsletter you should do so today, it contains surveys for awesome prizes, great tips, product information, and they even have contests!
And next on my list of great things that happened yesterday is I have been asked to design for a new color combo challenge blog! It is a new venture for the Scrapmaster's Paradise, she has started a new forum as well as a color challenge blog in addition to the regular blog! Every Monday there will be a color combo posted and you can create a card, layout, 3D or altered item using the colors posted. Now she is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and has also started some super AWESOME Stampin' Up monthly kits that you can purchase as well, so the colors listed are Stampin' Up colors-but you do NOT have to use any Stampin' Up products at all on these challenges! So head on over here today and come play along! And if you are in the market for some great Stampin' Up products be sure to contact Samantha and she will take care of your needs! I hope to "see" everyone come join me there!
And my final piece of EXCITING news is a couple weeks ago I got an e-mail from EK Success looking for people who would like to become certified class instructors so I filled out the form thinking you never know-it can't hurt to try! Well guess what?! YUP! I was selected to become a certified class instructor for them!!! I have been assigned to a Michael's location and I am half way done with my certification! I am SOOO EXCITED!! This is going to be a 2 hour class once a week for 4 weeks, and the training I have completed so far is really packed with LOTS of great information! I CAN'T wait to finish the training and get started on my first class-the ideas are just flowing with how much fun I can make this class! And another cool thing is each week at least one EK Success tool will be highlighted and you will be taught the proper way to use it! How cool is that? How many times have you bought a new tool that has little or no directions with it and you are left scratching your head wondering how to use it? I know I have! So as soon as I have more info I will share I know you will ALL want to take this class!
Well after this weekend that felt like it was NEVER going to end I am planning on getting some LONG OVERDUE scrapping in today! So hopefully I can get my chores done quickly and get some LONG OVERDUE play time in!! : ) I can't believe I ever survived this weekend-Friday shopping and dinner with friends; Saturday T-Ball, (which got rained out in the bottom of the 1st inning) birthday party, work for me, and then I was suppose to go out for my future SIL's b-day after work, but I had to work late and was too tired then to go out (Sorry Stacey!); Sunday was a Baptism for a friend's baby, home to eat a QUICK sandwich and then to my grandparent's house for a BIG family gathering to meet a relative in from California, and then FINALLY off to my friend's house for her son's birthday party! YIKES!!! No wonder I spent the day on the couch with a BAD headache yesterday!
Well off to the rat race of today!
