A Card, A Trifecta and A Giveaway
Even though my Guest Designer gig with Little Yellow Bicycle has ended, I can't seem to put away the Paradise collection LYB sent me. In particular, these 6x6 decorative edge papers were calling my name:
I attached the LYB scallop circle to the card base, then added a doily, a phrase sticker, a chipboard bird, a leaf and flower to make the card. All but the doily were part of the Paradise collection. The quote is from Audrey Hepburn. I thought this would make a fun birthday card with the inside sentiment,"Happy Birthday, pretty girl." Little Yellow Bicycle has been so good to me and featured this card on its blog here.
Next, I hope you will indulge me as I squeee just a little. I made it a goal last year to get published and on stands now, I have a scrapbooking trifecta: layouts in three major scrapbooking magazines all at once. I have baby layouts in Scrapbooks Etc, Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbook Trends. Plus, I also have an additional layout in Creating Keepsakes, a heritage page about my mom as a young girl.
I will confess that I had a great big goofy smile plastered on my face at Hobby Lobby the other day as I stared at the covers of all three of these magazines on the spinning rack, knowing I had something inside each one.
So, what do you say? Let's do a little giveaway! How about an 8x8 Graphic45 pad, G45 metal buttons and some 7Gypsies hardware and rub-ons. To enter, follow my blog and leave a comment. Comments will remain open until 9 pm EST on Thursday (2/23/2012) and I'll post the winner on my blog on Friday using random.org.
