Exciting News!!!!!!!!

I have some exciting news!!!!! I have been sitting on this news for a little while now, ready to burst with excitement. I am the Guest Designer for the month of February at the Scrapping Turtle!!! Lori and Hannah called me a couple of weeks ago to ask if I would be their Guest Designer. Without thinking I said yes, then I dropped the pepperoni that I had in my hand when I realized what I just agreed to. Dalwhinnie used the pepperoni on the floor situation and my distraction to her full advantage and seized the opportunity with her mouth in .03 seconds. Lucky dog.

I love crafts and scrapbooking is one I spend most of my free time on. Being Guest Designer is exciting and an incredible honor on one hand, yet thoroughly frightening on the other. My work is being put out there for everyone to see and like a lot of people I worry whether or not my work will be "good enough". Silly I know. I am also not one who has not posted a lot of her work for others to see. For me, being Guest Designer is an excellent opportunity, as we like to to say at the Turtle, to help me "Scrap Outside My Shell".

I will be posting different layouts and other scrapbooking projects throughout the month. I even have to do a card challenge which I have been working on in my head for about a week. I have a couple of ideas, not sure which one I will run with. I will let you all know when the time to reveal comes.

Today is the sneak peak at the Turtle Board and on their blog. The day we reveal a little taste of what we created with the kits we received. I was given the Simple Simon Collection by Piggy Tales. I chose to do Amanda's school picture from this year in black and white, which really popped on the red card stock.
