So much going on! My last CCG guest spot and THREE giveaways this weekend!!!!

Well I have had a lot going on the past few days!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who commented and left such sweet thoughts on my baby post!  Maybe it's the hormones, but it made me a bit tearry-eyed to think of all the support and well wishes I have! 

In other good news, I got a NEW scrappy teaching job!!  My old LSS closed in Dec., and I had heard of another small place nearby, so I inquired, and I start next month at Scrappn' Savvy!!!  And get this, what new lines does Karrie have coming in for me to use for my first class????   MY Mind's Eye Stella and Rose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOo HOOOO!!  Definetly one of my favorite releases!!!  And this little store and crop room have some much personality and warmth...there is a big brick, wood burning fireplace in the crop room!!  How awesome is that???

Also, be sure to stay tuned THIS WEEKEND from Friday until Tuesday for THREE posts from me for the Your Scrapbook Stash Blog Hop!!!   I will be giving away THREE $10.00 gift certificates, one for each post, which means you have three chances to win on my blog.  Not only that, but you have three chances to win on EACH DT member's blog!!!  That's a lot of gift certificates!!!!!!  Can't wait for this weekend!!!

Finally, this is my last Color Combo's Galore palette as a guest designer there in conjunction with YSS.  I have had such a fun time tackling these palettes.  But I have to tell you, this one was HARD for me!!!

I love that deep purpley-navy color, but have nothing like it in my stash!!!  Luckily, I did find some Maya mist that was close and sprayed some Tim Holtz trimmings with it to make the navy flowers.

We also had to use lace, metal, and flowers with this combo.  I have had these metal tages FOREVER, like 6 or more years.  I am so glad I finally used them up.  I added some rub-ons to them, and I really like the way they turned out.  At first I thought the little white frame was metal, but it's not, it's plastic.  So I added a metal charm inside.  Like I said, glad I used my stash for this page!

One last thing I wanted to leave you with.  Last year, I won the "Crowned" competition at Scrapdango, and the competition is on again!!!  (I can't believe it has been a year!).  This is such a fun contest, and will be SURE to get you out of a creative rut!!!!
