Okay so I have about a thousand things to...

say & announce!! We (Susan, Hilde & I) have decided that we need a few more days to decide on the new Design Teams, so I'll make the announcement on the 15 of this month. We got so many awesome entries it's close to impossible to make a decision!! You all are so very talented!

I have my very first CHA sneak peek to share with you today! I'm so excited to show you all

Blueberry Hill...

This maybe my most favorite collection yet! It's so bright, fun and cheery!! It makes me smile every time I look at it! And seriously who doesn't like a good yummy plump BLUEBERRY! I can't wait to see what the NEW design team will do with this collection!

I've been doing a lot of traveling and teaching lately and I wanted to share a few photo's from last weekends store that I was teaching at... Sharon's Crop Studio!
This is Sharon
This is Imogene, she is 80 yrs old and she told me that Scrapbooking has and continues to help her deal with the death of her husband. Imogene also told that she doesn't know what she would've done if she hadn't have found Scrapbooking! Thanks for inspiring me Imogene! You Rock!
These are only a few of the ladies that were in my classes, we were having so much fun I forgot to take a class picture with each class! We had a great time!!
This is Leigh, Sharon's daughter and my driver the entire weekend, we had so much fun chatting it up every morning & evening! Leigh you are awesome and so glad to have made another great friend through scrapbooking!!

Next...
I turned 38 this Spring, had a couple of great birthday parties. And... Wow I'm 38! I'm not sure how I should think and feel about this. So I'm just going with it! My mom made me this awesome strawberry cake and I ate my weight in it, thanks momma!


Dan and I finally got to get away on a vacation to the beach. Florida the first week of May is perfect weather, not to hot! And I may have ate fish tacos EVERYDAY... really every single day! Here we are on the beach...
And our Henry graduated 8th grade. Bitter sweet. Here is a picture of Dan and Hen-Pen right after the graduation. (They look just alike, don't they.)
Also..
Nikki Sivils, Scrapbook LLC has had a ton of publicity lately: a Willow Bee layout made the cover of a Dutch Scrapbooking magazine; a My Sweet Cherry Pie layout made the cover of Scrapbooking & Beyond as well as a picture of the collection on the cover of a Britain magazine Scrapbook Magazine. And my DT ladies have had a lot of pubs lately too in Scrapbook Trends Cards, Papercrafts Magazine, Scrapbook Etc, and I just got an Australian Scrapbooking Memories magazine in the mail with my Burlap Button and Willow Bee collection being "must" have items! We also have several layouts coming up in Creating Keepsakes magazine, Scrapbook Etc, Paper Crafts Magazine and Scrapbook Trends!! I can't tell you how exciting and overwhelming this all is for us at Nikki Sivils! Thank you to all who have and continue to support us! We are living our dream!!

My local DT and I will be at Scrap-a-palooza June 26th not only cropping our little hearts out but we'll be hosting 4 different "mini classes" using all Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker products! If you're in the area come by and play with us!! Info about it here.

And lastly... I'm hosting a giveaway on my Facebook Fan Page, so go check it out and you maybe the lucky winner of the complete "Dan the Record Man" collection!
Have a great week! Nikki

Nikki - the new line is simply delish!!!! I think it is totally cool that we both have Henry's at home, but yours is about twelve years older than mine - even though we are both 38 - hee, hee. Great work with all the pubs and the classes. Glad to help out where I can - LOL!
