So much scrapping news

  I swear, I have the best intentions for this blog. I think all I-can't-seem-to-post-regularly bloggers say that. I really don't want to ONLY post when I have scrapping stuff to share, but that seems to be what I'm doing. I'll really try to get back into some personal stuff on here, too. Because I love reading personal blog and some of you prolly like hearing personal stuff from me, too. Like about how my "baby" brother (who's 6'5") graduated high school yesterday and I cried my eyes out. And how, at that same graduation, I had to walk about a mile (because of parking issues) in heels and the result was 3 blisters on my feet, one of which has my whole ankle swollen (bleh!). Or how we're so inundated with Cicadas right now that I have a permanent drone in my ear, that I've finally been able to just ignore. And about how my little girl starts Gymnastics this Wednesday night and I am so excited for her, not to mention that she starts Preschool, at a REAL school, in 2 months and I just may die over that fact. So this is the kind of stuff I'm gonna try to post more often, even if it's just a little post.

Now, onto scrapping stuff, because I have the biggest news of my scrapping "career." When I started scrapping, I loved the creative outlet it gave me and I loved showcasing the pictures of my family and whatnot. Then I got accepted on my first CTs and those brought so much inspiration, motivation and scrapping mojo for me. Once I got more familiar with CT world, there were a couple of CTs that I wanted so bad, that it became my goal to be on them. I could feel in my bones how badly I wanted to be on these CTs. I loved the shoppe and/or designer SO MUCH, and for me, being on a CT is sharing my love for the designer/shoppe that I CT for. I want EVERYONE to see how awesome this stuff is. So the 2 CTs I wanted....I got on them!!! I could not be more ecstatic!

Even before I was on CTs, waaaaaaay before, actually, I was a fan of Misty Cato Designs. Her tutorials on her blog helped me when I was a fledgling newbie (still kinda am LOL), and her scrapper's tools and designs are A-MAHHH-ZING. And guess what. SHE. ACCEPTED. ME. ON. HER. CT. Unbelievable! I've never been so excited in my life, I don't think (ok, when I found out I was pregnant, that was better, but that's a bit different LOL). Just check out some of her kits:
Sing A Rainbow
Blending Masks
Friendship In Bloom
Quiet Reflection

Can you believe the gorgeousness????? My heart is sighing... And there's SO MUCH more at her shop at Sweet Shoppe Designs. (Oh, and pssst! She gives freebies, AWESOME freebies, out on her blog pretty regularly!)

And that's not all....ooooh, no, that's not all!! If you've read my blog in the past at all, you've heard my gush about my digi-home Polkadotplum. I even did a LO about how much I love it there:
Sweet Little Claire by Polkadotplum Designs
Journal mats: Animal Crackers by Digilicious
Title alpha (friends) - Sunshine and Happiness by Shiloh Designs
Title alpha (home) - Hodgepodge by Miss Tiina
Title font: Firefly Castle
Journal font: Daun Penh
Date Word Art: Date Stamps by Misty Cato

I got on the store CT there! I'm a Sugar Plum! I get to promote my love of PDP all over digi-land now! They have wonderful designers at PDP and they're having 2 guest designers every month for the rest of the year! Joining the amazing PDP designers this month as guests are Mye De Leon, who has gorgeous kits and Scrapping with Liz, who makes amazing templates!
