A HAPPY announcement...

and some MORE fun with Just Us Girls!

Hey, friends! I am finally ready to share my "little announcement" with you... You might remember me teasing you with that pearl a while back... I haven't forgotten! I was just waiting until the stars aligned, and darlings, THEY have!

TA DA! In case you didn't guess it by now {and I know that some of you did!}, I have been asked to join the sensational team of Want2Scrap
am elated and honored, all at the same time!!!!!!!!


If you've never checked out their hugely creative and inspirational blog, HELLO! It's wonderful! Not only a terrific source for crafting,
but they have some great give-a-ways and ideas a - plenty!
Having had the privilege of meeting the Want2Scrap lovelies in person, at CHA last week, I'm even MORE excited to be able to share the wonders of their gorgeous product line! At the show they introduced their partnership with Spellbinder's and a unique line
of sticky-back bling, EXCLUSIVE and custom patterned to match Nestabilities dies.


I thought this card would be a fitting piece to celebrate my very first, post as a Want2Scrap gal...

And HOW perfect is the timing {?} my darling friends from the Just Us Girls challenge site are being sponsored by Want2Scrap this week, so, clearly, many of my favorite creative worlds are colliding!

Check out this fun sketch for this week's challenge - it's a beaut!

I hope you'll go by there and consider joining this week, especially if you haven't in a while! I can assure you that the prizes will be worth the effort.... AND, the JUGS gals are some of the MOST creative and kind gals around! BTW: Don't try to adjust your set if you think you're seeing double: DANA from Paper Daydream is a designer for both the JUGS & Want2Scrap!
If you recognized her card from the sample with the Want2Scrap CHA booth,
be sure to check out her fantastic tutorial on paper "Peonies" + Want2Scrap Nestabling!
{I *heart* that girl! - She's SO crafty!}

So, yes indeed! This was a very exciting post! Since I didn't want to overwhelm you, I'm going to wait until tomorrow to post some CHA recap photos... ADDITIONALLY, my first, ever blog give-a-way is still ON! With tomorrow's post I'll include a photo of the loot & a deadline! If you haven't already, I'm hoping you'll follow me and leave me some love on this post. Leave two if you're already following - again, I'll post a deadline and let you know the fine, fine goodies you'll be eligible to win! I'm SO excited as this IS my first give-a-way, but it surely won't be my last!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you'll check out the Just Us Girls site for some terrific samples and fabulous inspiration - you'll NOT be disappointed!
And one last thing: Yee HAW!!!
