My dear blogging friends,
I have a laundry list 3 pages long of excuses as to why I have been missing from my blog for almost a month, but none of them are worth a hoot! I apologize for my absence and promise to keep up better! LOL
First things first!!! I started my second term on the Design Team at Let's Scrap April 1 and with me are these wonderful, fun and talented ladies! Please be a doll, and check out their blogs! Every one is inspiring and entertaining!

Yes, I have been scrapping, but not nearly as much as I would like to have! Here are a few of my latest creations, all inspired with sketches from Let's Scrap
This is our 4-11-12 weekly sketch
and my take on it. I took photos of the wall signs, banners and players chairs and used them as embellishments for my page. The basketball backboard is a slide mount with some stiff floral wire and a piece of veil netting I didn't use from the wedding LOL
This was the weekly sketch for 4-4-12, and was also the layout used for the DT applications
I splatter painted some white shimmer cardstock using red acrylic paint. The squares on the middle strip are small mirrors :) Very tricky to photograph without seeing me peeking down with the camera in the reflection!!
I am excited to share this with you all. My fellow DT Elizna (her blog is listed above in the list *winkwink*) hosted a month long challenge for March. She even supplied an awesome sketch of her creating! I was a monochromatic challenge, along with other bits and pieces. I love the way my page turned out!!
I hosted the Design Team challenge131. It is over now, but if you would like to check it out, you can find it here http://letsscrap.ning.com/forum/topics/design-team-challenge-131?xg_source=activity
This is the 3-28-12 sketch. These photos were taken 9-22-08. Mike and I had only been together for 1 month, Brian and Susie had been together over a year. They are getting married this June!! We beat them to the punch on that one, as we have now been married for over a year now LOL
I will be posting again tomorrow. I am going to start a blog series with the progress on my store. More deets tomorrow =)
