Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, not ONLY did Scrap Street do a FEATURE article on Nikki's "Flaming Butterfly" collection with Scrap Street's contributing journalists making some GORGEOUS lo's,  (you can see the WONDERFUL creations and the FULL ARTICLE right HERE HERE HERE!!!!) I also was lucky enough to have a LO I made with the "Flaming Butterfly" collection...(ironically...I had NO idea that Nikki's collection was being featured in the SAME issue using the SAME collection in the SAME month!! LOL!) with a feature article done by the WONDERFUL Stacey Michaud on the challenge blog that I run..."These are a Few of My Favorite Things".....   Our feature was in the "Blog Bay" section of their magazine, right HERE HERE HERE!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) I can not THANK Scrap Street ENOUGH for these well written, amazingly GORGEOUS articles on Nikki's WONDERFUL collection and on my challenge blog I run!!!

Go here.....to sign up....I promise...U will NOT be disappointed...their magazine is FULL of soooooooo much INSPO!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here is the LO I made for the article on "These are a Few of My Favorite Things" :):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And Nikki's "Willow Bee" collection was recently showcased in the Dutch Scrapbook Magazine!!!! The VERY TALENTED Lea Albers.... made two LO's with the collection and one of them was FEATURED on the front cover!! GO LEA!! WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!!! And I was lucky enough that one of my Dutch friends Hanneke sent me a copy of the magazine, so I could send it to Nikki!! Sooooooooooo YEP Lea!!! Nikki now has her very own copy of this magazine!!! Thanks sooooooooo much for letting me showcase your lo in this magazine here today!! I just LOVED seeing your lo in print!!!! GORGEOUS! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And before I head out of here for the day...I wanted to share a quick card I made for my In-Laws Wedding Anniversary...which was Monday!! Monday...they CELEBRATED 41 years of MARRIAGE!!! CONGRATS to them!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):) I used the "Will He B the 1?" collection...and I sure hope my Father in-law is the "1" as they are celebrating 41 years!!
