WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

I am now officially a scrapbook designer! I found out today that I'll be the December Guest Designer for SimplyObsessed.com (a fab kit club). Hopefully the kit is in the mail because I am crazy excited to give it a whirl. My layout entitled Wonder Fall was the winning entry (see below).

NOT a Kit!



Lately all my pages have come from my kits. For this layout, I went outside the box (literally, I did not dig into my 12x12 shipping boxes) and used random paper from previous projects. I LOVE how it turned out. The sketch is from Becky Flect and the ribbon gathering was shown at Scrap-Room this month. The rest was all my imagination.

So I finally took down my Halloween decorations. I was trying to keep my halloween banner up as long as possible seeing as it was my first banner and so darn cute (if I do say so myself!). I folded it up and put it in a gallon ziplock. I hope it makes it through the year in the attic.

Wow! My new camera takes stunning photos with the click of a button. I can't stop taking pictures. Everything--including weeds in my backyard--is subject to being caught! Enjoy! Aphra

These two layouts represent my submissions to be a part of the Treasured Memories Design Team and the Simply Obsessed Design Team. I love the idea of being challenged and stretched to try new techniques, layouts, products, etc. Wish me luck! Aphra

Hi all! Just trying to customize and set up my blog. This is a big step for a cyberspace newbie such as myself! So far, so good though.
