It just keeps getting better . . .

I'm super excited! I was recently asked to be the guest faculty member for The School of Scrap for June! I'm so honored to have been asked. If you enjoy scrapping AT ALL, you HAVE to check out this site! It has such a cool concept, none like I've ever seen before on the internet. The forums are actually fun scrapping classes, for free! There's so much inspiration and information there and all the people there are so friendly and supportive. I have so much fun there!

So I'll be teaching Photo-ology in June along with some Book of Me challenges, and I may even be getting some sponsor products to play with. I do know that I'll be having a great time, so come visit me there!

Junior Scrapper

So J did his very first scrapbook page the other day. I think he did an awesome job! I'm so glad that he's becoming so interested in something I'm so passionate about! I hope he does some more!

Photo of the Week

I recently challenged myself to spend at least 10 minutes a day taking pictures. I think it's a great way to learn more about my camera and generally improve my photography. I'll try to post my favorite picture each week. It was a tough choice between three, but this one is my favorite.

How can you not just fall in love with that face? - even after he did THIS to my scrapbook last week!


I've been doing online surveys for a while for two different companies. Both give you points for completing surveys. One gives you products you can "purchase" with your points - at that one I got the Monsters Inc DVD and gave that to my kids last Christmas. The other company gives you the option of "purchasing" products, gift cards to certain internet businesses, or sending you money through Pay Pal.

The last couple times I earned enough points to get Pay Pal, I used the money to make some scrapbook supply purchases online instead of having them send me the money to my checking account. As soon as I get enough points to get a little more Pay Pal money, I'm going shopping at The School of Scrap store. They've got some BamPop and Basic Grey paper I'm dying to get my hands on. Yes, I know, I just bought some Basic Grey paper at my LSS, but a girl can never have too much Basic Grey, can she?

I just need to do a couple more surveys till I have enough points. Please send me a survey invitation soon!!

The coolest thing evah!

Last night I submitted this LO to the Basic Grey gallery and they sent me an email that they accepted it! I'm so excited to be a part of their website! Here's the actual link to my page in the gallery if you want to see it there.

I also submitted this page to The School of Scrap's KI Memories Pet Contest. It's a really cool contest. Check it out if you love to scrap. They're giving away an awesome prize package!
