Scrapbooking Again!

I'm so happy to be scrapbooking again! 
I went to a scrapbook retreat in St. Louis and scrapbooked the entire weekend with a few of my closest scrapbooking buddies, Katrina, Steph and the Scrapbook Generation ladies! We all stayed in the same hotel and scrapbooked, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was so much fun!! Here are some pictures from my weekend as well as a fun layout I made too.
Steph and I.
I love this girl!!
(We met on the CK message board about 6 yrs ago!)
My Friend Katrina had never eaten at Hooters, so I had to
 take care of that! We had a great lunch! We ALWAYS
have so much fun together, and talk non-stop!!

We left Springfield, where we both live, and it was cold 
but sunny, then about 2 hours into our trip it turned cloudy
and we drove thru a blizzard for about 10 minutes.
It was insane then, bam, it was sunny and cold again!
What the heck!! 
The "Hoff" was at our crop! LOL!!
This layout got labeled the "12 hour" layout, mainly
because its the only thing I created the first 12 hours
I was at the crop! But... with that said, I did a lot of
socializing and well, talking! 
But it turned out really cute!
I created a "flap" so that I could included
both my Christmas cards from this year and
my long journaling. 

(Most all the product is Bella Blvd.)

That's all folks!!
Have a great weekend!!

Create Magazine...

I'm so happy to announce I'm on the Create Team for the NEW online Create Magazine by Scrapbook Generation!! I've always been on the other side of this industry, so being on a design team is really FUN!! 

Here are some fun facts and info about the FREE ONLINE CREATE MAGAZINE:

Scrapbook Generation's CREATE, a free monthly digital magazine, goes live today! With over 200 pages of papercrafting goodness, the inaugural issue is packed with information and inspiration from talented scrapbookers and cardmakers.

The magazine focuses on sketches -- providing four free layout, card, and tag sketches designed by Allison Davis and Debbie Sanders each month -- but there is so much more!

CREATE features a different manufacturer's design team every month. For January, the Fancy Pants design team has created 34 layouts, cards, and tags using the SG sketches.

Allison Davis and her sketch expertise will show up in a variety of articles. You'll get a close-up, detailed look at her creative process, and her ability to make simple, yet totally theme-specific handmade embellishments.

CREATE magazine has its own talented design team that is featured in three segments: a color challenge, a sketch challenge, and an optional project challenge.

The magazine also includes other inspirational articles and features related to scrapbooking, cardmaking, and papercrafting, including a monthly technique tutorial by Tammy Tutterow. 

Head over to Scrapbook Generation's newly expanded online store and check out the first issue of CREATE. It's free, and it's fabulous!

I have a little sneak peek of my layout I created for the Create magazine! Please go check out all of my projects and my fellow team members projects too!!
Have a great day!!
