I Have Some EXCITING Things to Share and a PRIZE for YOU!!!

Happy Tuesday! I have a few things to share with you. I'll start with my exciting news that I hinted about yesterday. A little while ago, I received a wonderful email from Lisa, the owner of a favorite scrapbooking/stamping shop of mine, Right at Home Scrapbooking in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. Her email asked if I'd be interested in joining her DESIGN TEAM! How exciting! Lisa's store is filled with all of the things that I love to create with...My Favorite Things stamps, The Cat's Pajamas Stamps, Copic Markers, October Afternoon Papers, Cosmo Cricket Papers, My Mind's Eye Papers, Spools of Baker's Twine, Ribbons, Buttons, and the list goes on and on and on! I'm simply thrilled to pieces! Thank you so much for this wonderful honor Lisa! I am really looking forward to working with your fantastic designers!

Can you tell how happy I am!! I was even happier when I received my first Design Team kit! It had some of my most favorite things in it...ribbons, buttons, My Mind's Eye papers, and two sweet Pure Innocence stamp sets from My Favorite Things!! Ack...if you have been by my blog before, then you know how much I LOVE working with these adorable stamps! Thanks so much for letting my gush for a moment! Now, would you like to see something that I made with all of these wonderful things?

My first project uses this adorable image from My Favorite Things. It comes from the "Lather. Rinse. Repeat." set. I just love this image because I happen to have an antique claw footed bathtub in my master bathroom. We refinished one that we found and installed it when we built our home. My little bath girl is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, C0, C1, C3, E000, E00 E11, E25, E27, R20, Y32, YR24, and the Colorless Blender). The bubbles are covered with glitter to add some sparkle. I used a Copic Multi-liner to draw in the floor and then I colored it in. Her little shower cap is paper pieced with a piece of "Sunny Stripes" paper from the Alphabet Soup Girl collection from My Mind's Eye. I also used the "Flower Patch" paper from the same collection for this project. The oval, wooden frame is one that I had picked up at Michaels awhile ago. After I covered the frame with these wonderful papers, I added some lime green ribbon with a Basic Grey button and some Baker's Twine to finish it all off. The frame has two little pegs in the back so that it can sit on a counter or a cabinet.

My next project uses another adorable Pure Innocence set from My Favorite Things. This one is called, "Lollypop". Now with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought that this would make a perfect little treat for a loved one. I filled the jar with lollipops (they are a little healthier than chocolates...lol!) and then I started embellishing.

I used the Hearts a Plenty Die-namic from My Favorite Things to make some hearts from the "Lovely" paper from the Alphabet Soup Girl collection from My Mind's Eye. I accented the hearts with more Basic Grey buttons. To dress up the twill ribbon, I stamped one of the sentiments from the set right onto the ribbon.

Here is a close-up of the tag that I made for the candy jar. My lollipop loving, little girl is colored up with Copic Markers (BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E11, E25, E27, E40, R20, R22, and R24.) I added some glitter to the lollipop for a bit of sparkle. The tag was made with my Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities. The classic oval uses the same "Lovely" paper that I used for the hearts and the scalloped oval is made with Bo Bunny's Passion Fruit Dot paper.

Thanks so much for visiting with me today. Lisa is offering an opportunity for you to win some "pretty" papers and "cute" stamps over on the Right at Home Scrapbooking blog, so head on over for your chance to win something. The link is here. I'll be back on Thursday with some more fun things to share. Until then, my friends...Toodles! :D
