A New Beginning....

It's Sunday Night. The beginning of a new week and new ideas to share.

I've been really busy this past month. Doing what? Scrapbooking of course! (oh, and going to the Dentist!)

Last week I received a box in the mail from Patricia at FiberScraps ( Guess what was in the box! The four new Walnut Ink colors from FiberScraps! The new colors are Leaf Green, Sky Blue, Charcoal, and Whitewash!!! I really can't wait to use the Charcoal and the Whitewash. Those are going to be fun!!! And I've been looking for a white color to use on dark papers for awhile, so this box came just in time!

I've also been adding a few things to my gallery over at 2peas. Here's a link to go to my gallery... I've added just a few things that I've been working on in the past month or two. And I have a few more projects to add, just have to finish them!

Tonight I decided to take on a project that has been on my mind for awhile. I learned how to solder. I bought a Solder Gun and it's been sitting here in my scrapbook room for the last month. I was going to take the day off and do nothing, but then I got this idea in my head that I had to do learn how to do it tonight. So I plugged in the gun, let it heat up and started to use it. It was EASY!!!

As soon as I'm done with my Soldering project I'll post it here....shouldn't take me too much longer. Hopefully tomorrow!

Last night I went scrapbooking with a friend of mine that is moving. We had a great time! And I did this really cool layout for a Design Team Search. I thought I would try out for the Rouge De Garance... Design Team. They are looking four designers from the United States. So I thought why not try out! You won't know if you can make it unless you try! So I have to have my submission in to them by the 31st of this month...I'm keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed. The only thing wrong with my submission is that I didn't use any of their product, mainly because I couldn't get my hands on it. There are only a few places that I could find online in the states that carried it, and they were all out when I went online shopping.

So, how did I hear about this search? That's a good question. I heard about it on 2peas. BUT, I first discovered Rouge de Garance from one of the English Scrapbooking magazines that I bought while I was on vacation over in England. Even then I was interested, but this search for a US Design Team really pushed me to get my entry in! I hope then like what I send them, because I really do!

So I better get back to work. These projects that I am sending in are really totally different from things that I have created before. I will post them here as soon as I finish....because, well, they are really going to be beautiful!

In the meantime, here are some of my layouts and projects that I have completed in the past month and a half! (okay, so they are up above because I don't know how to get them down below! (lol)
Have a great day tomorrow !!!

I LOVE the boxes and the layouts girl! Good luck with the DT--I think it will be great!

And dang--you're having a hard time keeping your scrapping friends in Texas aren't you? Seems they all keep moving away... : ( That stinks! On a brighter note--I scrapped today with the friend you sent to me...and I LOVE her!!! {thanks again!}

Good luck on the Rouge DT. I had to buy my paper from a Cananda website before they were at CHA... so now I get their newsletter in French which of course I can't read.
