Summer Scrooge gets a taste of the summer good life!

Wow! For those of you who know me well, you know I am not a huge fan of summer...the heat, the lack or busy we are..I am actually a bit of a summer Scrooge! I look forward to school starting and I count down the days..but this month has brought me some new surprises and some great scrappy times.

I heard that I was to be published in Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's spring 2012 issue this month. I do have a layout coming out in the September 2011 issue and couldn't believe they chose my work AGAIN! Print publishing is one of my scrappy goals that I strive for every time I create something.

I also happened to be asked to join Practical Scrappers Design Team. They are a wonderful source of talented designers who provide inspiration EVERYDAY!

 I also heard from Scrapbooking News and Review and they asked for 5 of my layouts for their most recent edition! What an honour.

Finally, Mys Sketch World had a design team call and I was chosen to be a part of their layout design team.

Can you say WOW? I am so lucky to have these great opportunities and to be part of great teams. I continue to love my Two Scrapbook Friends design team work and this month I am working with Simple Stories kit. It;s is gorgeous and versatile and can hardly wait to show you on September first!

So...I guess summer isn't too bad after all...and I won't be so quick to tell you there are only 20 days til school starts!

Still doing what I love (and so lucky to have people believing in my art!)

PS: I wanted to share with you a layout I made while scrapping  a few weekends ago. I used Little Yellow Bicycle's  Tiny Princess Line. Lots of strips and a canvas banner, a little chipboard wand and some purple polka dot ribbon. Lots of butterflies and buttons and finally, some stitching!


  1. It's no wonder at all that you've been picked for publishing and DT - your work is amazing! <3

  2. Well - congratulations girl! How awesome to have your talent recognized by so many sources! Way to go :)
