Go ahead, make my day .... and other stuff

And Wowzers, that is exactly what College Press did ... Imagine what happened when I hopped on over to their blog this morning!!! you have to take a peek yourself to see what has got me doing the happy dance. Thanks College Press, that was so much fun! And while we are on the topic, local girls, if you see the new College Press Joyride line anywhere can you let me know ... I'm dying to get my hands on it!

Hayley's blog post the other day has me thinking ... and rethinking (I'm not seeking fame, but I am looking for something) ... then, my fave challenge blog closed .... then Erica called the store the other day and we got to chatting ... and now I am thinking that I really do miss being part of an online community ... but I have yet to find one that fits .... I miss being on a DT ... i work really well with deadlines and the creative community of a DT is really uplifting and challenging and well just fun ... so maybe i will start poking around to see what is out there ...

Carrie has me feeling really owlish these days .... so i used some older kaiser craft paper and rubons, some not so great older photos, and this teeny little acrylic album (i think it is scrapworks but not to sure) and this is what i came up with!




I hope you all have a wonderful day and find something to do the happy dance about!!!

Aaaaahhhh Carrie's going to go nuts when she sees your adorable book. Congrats on the CP challenge! Very cool.
You know.. I think being on a DT is a great experience, fun, and postitive. I've unfortunately only been burned by the experience. Still, there is nothing wrong with having a goal and working towards it. Besides you're an amazingly talented woman who would be an asset to any team. Can't wait to find out which online forum you find. You can count me in as a tag-a-long. What else is new!?!

Thanks for the inspiration chica.

Jo-love your blog and your creations...so inpiring. Please be careful about the challenge blog you wish to design for...often these are just ego boosters for the head DT/creator...I'm thinking about a local inpiration blog- IS- where the creator is only out to benefit herself and will dump or discourage anyone of her DT's who start to have some outside sucess...please be careful!!
