Poor neglected blog - a long post to make up for it!

My poor blog I haven't updated you for so long.....

I have been very busy with helping getting  Scottie Crafts get ready for the craft show and lots of other things.  The craft show went very well and it was really busy - I didn't even really see what else was there. I loved what Adrienne and Wendy did with the stand it looked lovely and was pink of course!!

When I came back from working on the stand (after a two drive home in rush hour traffic) I saw a comment on my previous post congratulating me on my new guest design team position.  YES I have been selected to be a guest designer for Donna Salazar Designs for 2011/2012 so cool.  I haven't seen a lot of the products in New Zealand but I know Scottie Crafts will be bringing some of the new ranges in - very exciting.

Here is a layout I submitted for the design team call using Donna' s paper and the butterflies are cut using one of her dies (spellbinder). I added Prima and a Twiddleybitz fence.

I did this layout at the crop Trina organised to raise money for Christchurch.  I had a great time there and there were lots of yummy goodies to eat (thanks Debs) - just as well I won the voucher for 4 one on one personal trainer sessions!

At the crop I also finished of an album I created as a kit for Scottie Crafts  (not sure if there is any left after the show- only $30).

My design team kit from Scottie Crafts included almost the entire range of Be Mine Paper Range by Echo Park - a lovely black, white and pink combo.  I decided to create an eight by eight album using chipboard pieces and black and white photos of my daughter  Kaitlyn.  As you can see the paper can be used for girly photos and not just pages of romance - I think it will look great with young girl teens or ballerina pages too.

With the left over alphas and other bits I created a layout as well. I created a background with the alphas and white acrylic paint.

and this is my class this week at Scottie Crafts - Create a Scene- using paper loft papers and La Blanche stamps.

Thanks for looking I will be back soon with more SOON!! as I have lots to share.
