Exciting news & publications!!!

Hello my friends and followers!

I am warning you, this is a totally "bragging" post..LOL
Well, we all need a little bit of that too right??? it goes....

Purple Pumpkin

I am super excited to announce that I am the new DT coordinator for Purple Pumpkin!!!
WOOHOO!!! I feel really blessed because these handmade embellies are a big love of mine and I tend to use them on every single layout I make!!! I was thrilled when I joined the DT so you can imagine how I feel now! Thank you Samantha! You know that I'll do my best!!!

Having said that, I would like you all to know that we have a "Facebook Monthly Contest" going on! 
 We'd love to see you sharing your layouts featuring PP on our FACEBOOK PAGE, and the design team will be choosing their favourite each month to win a prize!!

Besides that, we have a sketch challenge every month but August was PP's birthday so we are currently having a recipe challenge! Check it out HERE! You still have plenty of time!
 And the good thing is that you can play along even without using PP products!
 Read the rules HERE!

Visit Purple Pumpkin shop any time HERE.

And if you like washi tape (I am sure you do) there is a giveaway!!!

Scrapbook Magazine U.K.

I got a mail a few months ago by a lovely lady "Lindsey Hopkins" who is the Editor of "Scrapbook Magazine" telling me she would like to announce in October's issue that I am their new design team member!!!! Believe me...I never expected that one coming!!! She saw my work when I applied for the magazine and the above was her reply! So keep an eye out for me in October! 4 or 5 layouts of mine will be in there with instructions and there will also be an interview!!! OMG! How exciting is that???

Scrapbooking Memories

I have already sent 8 layouts to their office in Australia to be photographed in their studio and you'll be seeing my work in the upcoming issues!! Two of them have already been published and two more will be in Vol 15 No. 2 (on sale 31/10/2012)
Thank you Vanessa Cavasinni (Assistant Editor) 

Scrapbook News and Review

I was chosen as a featured Artist at "Scrapbook News & Review" on line magazine back in June!
Thank you Eric McKenna (Executive Editor) for that honor!

And some features...
