Are you here?

I haven't been. Since November. Almost 3 months. Ouch. I have neglected my little spot here. Hope your holidays went well and I still want to wish you all the best for 2009! I have not heard this song, Give it 2 Me by Madonna, on the radio yet. Last week I was watching Ellen, she was dancing to it - so FUN! I immediately added it on to my playlist. I love rockin' to this music, hope you do too!

thanks for commenting!! ;)

I have been in such a scrapping slump the past few months. That is too long without my mojo. Despite the fact I made a resolution to get more pages done this year, I only have two, which were made for Color Combos Galore.

Triple the Sketch #41, I scrapped 12x12 and I likey!!! I was always afraid of all that space but I am lovin' it. Only when I have to scan the layout four times, stitch and blend do I reconsider using this size.

Two Peas in a Bucket Classes: Celebrate the Seasons - February 2009, these classes look like a lot of fun! You should definitely check them all out. All the classes are in their Education section. This class was to create a February themed layout. A sketch was provided, which I used and made into a one-pager.

And finally, I can show it!!! MY FIRST PUBLICATION!!! I was lucky enough to have my layout included in Scrapbook Trends' Go Digital Idea Book. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I finally saw it! And the look on Rianna's face when I showed it to her? Priceless.

As always, thanks for stopping by!! Hope you are enjoying the music!

Have a super wonderful day!

ok, i guess i don't know how to add to comment after i hit "post" LOL! :p

i wanted to say...congratulations on the magazine publication! i love that layout too. the dark brown really pops!
and i am so glad i found color combos! it is so liberatiing to just use my stuff! old or new or whatever. it's like new life has been breathed into my supplies just by pairing them with something new! i've been looking for that type of motivation/inspiration for a long time.
