Monday Means Big News!

Well, we made it through Little Miss's birthday party. It was HOT, but the kids seemed to have a great time swimming. And the parents were good sports about swimming with them or helping us get everyone fed. There was no real party coordinator so we accepted help from any of the parents that offered. It went fine and she had a blast. I didnt get too many pictures though. I do like this one:

And of course, being Monday the new ScrapTiffany Challenge is posted. This week's challenge is to use those photos that are, well, how should we put it...less than wonderful. There are a few times a year that I feel pressured to get good pictures and seem to continuously fail miserably. The most notable is Christmas. The light in our living room stinks so all the Christmas morning pictures are bleah. This year I tried to take some super low light (actually no light) pictures of the stockings hanging on the stair rail and the tree. I guess the stockings one is ok, but the tree picture looks like a picture on Mars. Oh well, maybe by next Christmas I'll have a better camera with a higher ISO. For now, I still wanted to scrap these photos, so I put some of the title over one to detract from it's not so great qualities ;)

I sanded some Coredintations (from the Classic Cosmo Cricket pack) and then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Chalkboard white for the background.

Head on over to ScrapTiffany to check out the other designers ways to scrap those less than desirable photos. And if you have some some photos you've tucked aside because they are seemingly not scrap worthy, take the challenge and be sure to email it to Tiffany by Friday!

I have a few other items of FUN NEWS!! First up...I was selected to be a member of the inaugural Just Imagine Design Team! Just Imagine Crafts is the exclusive US agent of Kreaxions Punches. They have a super cool circle cutter and many 4 in 1 punches as well as standard image punches. I already have a set of punches to work with and I can't wait to get started! You can see the announcement HERE and check out the other members of the team (their blogs are listed to the right).

Also, I have been doing some behind the scenes designing for Moxxie and just recently, the DT coordinator made me an official Design Team Member!! I am super excited and will have the opportunity to design some projects that hopefully will be displayed at this summer's CHA. 

Finally, I have a few sneak peeks to share from the upcoming July Trio kit for 3Scrappy Boys

There are so many fun goodies in this one, I know it is going to sell fast. I will be back in a few days (where did June go???) once the kit has been revealed to share some layouts.

Have a great week!

    If it makes you feel any better, most of my Christmas pics turn out the same way! (even with a fancy camera, how sad is that?)
