Guest Blogger | Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine

I was a guest blogger for the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine yesterday! I always get nervous talking about myself or things I like, I'm not sure why! It's like a little piece of me that I have a hard time with. I don't like bragging about myself or making myself more important than others. I am grateful for the talent or gift that I have of Being Creative and think everyone has a bit of that hidden in them.

I created 2 layouts for the feature using Simple Stories.
The first layout is called Blessed - and features the NEW I AM collection. This is for sure one of my favorite Simple Stories collections. I think I've created 4-6 layouts already with this collection and it never gets old. LOVE IT!

 My sewing machine is giving me a hard time.. getting stuck in places and not performing well... It's about 20 years old, maybe she needs to retire!

 Yes, I was told by someone that I wasn't very ' Patient ' that's why I have a smiley face next to I am Patient! ;-)))


This is my second layout called Dream - My little nephew sitting on the couch all comfy and cozy. His little hands under his chin. He's probably dreaming of something .. not sure what that might be but I'm sure it's filled with cupcakes and candies! ;-)

Design Team Announcement | Bella Blvd

I have been a long time fan of Bella Blvd. Most of my scrappy friends would tell you that I have had a dream of being on the Bella Design Team ever since I started scrapbooking in 2006. I applied 2 years ago but the time wasn't right but I never gave up ! This year I sent in my submissions giving it another try and crossed my fingers that I would be selected.

I received the welcome email last week from Laura Vegas (dt coordinator) that I was selected for the team. I immediately printed the contract, the agreement etc and signed all copies .. Wrote an acceptance email with a huge grin on my face and lots of clapping emojis! A few days ago Laura sends me a message asking if i was going to reply with my decision to accept or deny the new Design team position. I jumped up and said "YES I emailed you immediately after the welcome letter" ...
YA , um , i forgot to press SEND on the email !!! That's how excited I was :-)

So, today I can share ..

Click here to visit the Bella Blvd Blog to meet the creative team I'll be working with !
