Jenny Strikes Again!

Once again my SUPER AWESOME FRIEND Jenny has made me a new apron. This girl (ME) just can't get enough pretty aprons! This one was created for the Scrap Sistaz retreat I'll be attending with my friends from Thursday Therapy in July at the NEW Talking Stick Resort and Casino. For the past 2 years Thursday Therapy has had t-shirts made for this event...but this year we decided to go with cute aprons! See more of Jenny's special creations in her etsy store: Shabby Trunk.

A Funny thing...

...happened while I was shopping at my FAV scrapbook store on Friday night. I went to purchase some Bazzill Just the Edge Borders and I found my layout on the packaging! Silly me! Imagine my surprise! One of my greatest professional joys is being part of the Bazzill Design Team. I never know where my work is going to show a magazine ad? On QVC? And now, even on the packaging! I love surprises!!!

...done with my June Master Mini Books Project! Woke up this morning and decided the cover needed a banner (I know, how cute). I'm posting a sneak peak at the inside! This book has lots to offer...Of course there are the adorable BBQ die cuts, 3 acrylic pages + 6 chipboard pages, pom poms, flowers, buttons, rickrack and ribbon and we will finish up our BBQ project with a strawberry pie (a paper pie that is). A few sassy sayings will be added to spice up this project! Completed project goes on display Friday at Scrapbooks, Etc.!

Honored and Thrilled

That's how I felt when Bazzill asked me to coordinate multiple swaps (20) for Creative Escape 2010 (600 scrappers). I'm no stranger to this event or to Bazzill. I have been a volunteer at Creative Escape for the past three years and have been on the Bazzill Design team for almost as long. You must be attending Creative Escape to sign-up or gain access to the Swap Room. All this gets even better...Provo Craft is the Swap Room sponsor!

We have been busy planning and plotting for a few months now and still have so much more work to do! Just thought I'd let my readers know what I'm up to! Maybe I will see you at Creative Escape --- It's an AWESOME experience!
