Sunday, April 1

News revealed.

A little while ago I came across a messageboard called I am a scrapaholic, that Ang also belonged to. I hung around for a bit and joined in the marathon challenge they were having. Lynn, the owner apparently liked my work because she has asked me to become a permanent member of her design team. This is the first time I have been offered a DT spot without actually applying for it. It's all very exciting. There are some awesome designers there that I get to work with, including Kimber McGray who has just become a CK Hall of Famer.

Here's the site:
Check back soon. I'll be uploading more to the gallery inthe next couple of days.
here are a couple of the first projects I have done for them.

Not only is that exciting news, but April is also their first anniversary for the site, so all month there are going to be heaps of games, competitions and challenges each day, inlcuding a page plan challenge by me.

Being the first of the month also means that the 2croppincousins layouts are now up in the gallery. This is one of my projects from the newsletter.

Instead of sharing all of my projects here this month, I challenge you to go here: to the gallery and have a look at the rest. Better still join up and leave me a comment.

the kit this month as you will see was all black and white and used Luxe Designs papers. At the beginning I was a bit hesitant about what I would do, but once I got started I really enjoyed the kit. The good news is that the kit went on sale this morning. The bad news, is that it is already sold out. How amazing is that. great news for Amy and Kelly though. Just goes to show that they are awesome kits.

I got an email acceptance the other day for one of my projects to go into the Paper Crafts magazine special issue. This will be my first American publication so I'm really excited about that. I posted it ont he SGK board, and within 5 minutes, Molly called me because she was so excited. I'm so glad I met Molly, she is so lovely and a great friend.

This time next week we will be back in Australia. I'm looking forward to it. Some more warm weather will be nice. It will be even better to spend a whole week with Michael. Right now he is sitting in a plane on the tarmac that will sit there for 2 hours before they take off. He'll spend yet another week in Chicago, but he'll be back on Thursday and we leave here on Friday night. Plenty to do between now and then of course.

Thanks for sticking out the long post.

CONGRATULATIONS on the DT position!!!!! That' s areal credit to you and your awesome work that they chose you with out even applying for the position! Well done!!!Love the black and white frames you did with the kits! Very good idea! Loved the LO on kyan's page. I managed to make out the journaling - you poor thing! You will be needing a bit of a break by the time you get home to Oz. You really notice the difference when there's no other adult conmpany and no one to help out a bit. Happy packing! See you soon!
Love Linda xoxo
