NEW Sneak Peek and a BLOG Award!!

Hi Everyone!  Happy Tuesday to you!

I wanted to share one more Sneak Peek of my upcoming class at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo, next Tuesday night March 13th at 6:30pm - There are a few seats left - I hope you can make it -please call the store at 201 818 7060 if you'd like to join me.  

It is the first in a series of Classes that "THE DOO" will be offering - called "How'd She DOO That?"

In this class, I will show you HOW TO - combine different patterned papers, from different manufacturers.

We will make a 1 page 12x12 Layout, using patterned paper from 7 Gypsies, Webster's Pages, Basic Grey, and Bazzill Cardstock.

The project will be multi-layered and incorporate the following techniques as well: fussy cutting; paper pleating; painting with Ranger's Distress Stains ( FUN!!) ; water distressing, ZVA "Bling" and Prima flowered ribbons. A sample is in the store now!
I hope you can join me - Class info can be found HERE


A very KIND and Talented BLOGGER that I meet in this CRAFTY On-line Bloggy World - by the name of KIM - AKA LAZY COWGIRL sent me a LIEBSTER BLOG & a Shout Out on her BLOG!  She also sent me this beautiful note:  

Kim has left a new comment on your post "Egg-citing News! I was selected by We R Memory Kee...":
"Well of course they asked you to be a Guest Designer. Your art is beautiful. I love that water distressing technique. I'll have to try it. I've mentioned you on my blog and given you the Liebster award for your blog. please visit me and grab your button. Love your stuff." 
So very Sweet!  THANKS KIM!

So I wondered - what is the Liebster Award?  I did a little searching and is kind of like a RAK (random act of kindess) 

The purpose of this award is to spread the LOVE to Small Blogs ( under 200 followers.)  This helps to spread readership to us newbies, and helps to share the bloggy love. 

It’s time to for me to pay it forward and here are my 5 picks. Check out these talented bloggers. There are so many people (with lots of followers) that have been so generous by mentioning my blog, I’m happy to pass on the same kindness to others! Please visit them and show them some blogging love.
