Whoo Hoo!!!

My term was coming to an end at wScrap. I was feeling pretty sad about it. weScrap was the first place to give me a chance on a design team. It will always hold a special place in my heart because of it.

So what is a girl to do when she's feeling sad about her DT term ending? She re-applies! And I did. I've been stretched thin this month scrap wise thanks to working full time hours (although I am not complaining too much when the pay checks roll in), but I still managed to find the time to get my submissions done.

Here they are:

Confessions of a Scrapper - I'm sure most scrappers out there can relate to this one. This was my me submission. The journaling is all about me, and it's handwritten (something I always do). There's stitching, also very me. There's doodles and outlining. Something I do often. And there's tons of Sassafras Lass. One of my fave companies. I put in a little bit extra that most people won't catch, but I know it...There are three roses; the large one by the girl on the trike, one by the deer and one by my picture. Roses are my favourite flower.
You Are My Sunshine - I love, love, love, love, love this one. The die cut is new We R Memory Keepers. From the new boy line...I am drawing a blank on the name of the line...I knew what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw it. I was going to put Sassafras Lass into the center, but I didn't have a sheet big enough in my stash for it. I wanted "sunbeams" for the center. I remembered "sunbeams" on some Paper Adventures paper I was saving for a mini album. I dug in. I cut out the center of the die cut paper, put in the Paper Adventures paper and the stitched for extra strenght. I loved the clouds on the Paper Adventures paper, so I cut one out and then traced it on the center piece of the die cut. I inked the edges so they popped a little more and ta-da! Cute, little clouds. That's Prima packaging from pebbles around the picture. And those little orange pieces of paper...They were places because I made a mistake...Can't tell now...Other than I just let my secret out.
Do You Believe in Magic - In reality...Monkey was leaning on a fence and my sister was pointing at fish. And my mother was in the background. Cut them out, put the on clouds (these clouds are American Craft clouds from their Everyday line, my personal fave of theirs) and you have magic! I saw a picture on Elsie Flannigan's blog that was my inspiration for this layout. I showed Steve and he saw where I was coming from. It just spoke to me. I do wish I had a smaller paint brush though. This one was hard to paint in some spots. Or maybe I just need to break out the paint more and get more practice.

So, I woke up this morning with an email from Ally saying to check my status on weScrap to see if I made the team. And there...Staring right at me was..."Inspiration Team...Congrats to Me!" I am so happy! Six more fun filled months at my special, little site.

And that being said...We have a crop (that I would have been part of anyways, because my first term doesn't end until the end of the month) coming up.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are hosting a Think Pink Crop. It's going to be a awesome, girly crop. There are tons of fab ideas and cool challenges coming your way. And, play along with us and you'll have the chance to win...Are you ready for it...A PINK SLICE!!!!!! How cool is that?
