How time flies!  Tis the season to be busy!   There is just not enough time in the day it seems, especially to play and create!

Since I haven't created anything new for the blog, I went searching through my photos.  I found this cute layout I did for Spellbinders.

When I saw this photo, I knew I had to make a page with it!!!  What a cutie! 

This is an 8 x 8" layout.  I used papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas.  The colors are perfect with Brecken's shirt!  The title "all BOY" and stars with circles were all cut with Spellbinder™ Presto Punch™
and punch templates.  The letters were cut with PT-F01 and PT-F02 Plain Jane Capital and Lower Case alphabets.  The stars are P3-006, Circles - P3-001.  I also used P3-009 Labels B to cut the mat under his name.  The date and his name are Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpabet stickers.  I copied the style to print "Doesn't that smile just say...".  A little sanding exposes the white paper core for some highlights.   This is really quite a simple layout.  I love how it turned out!!!Or is it just the photo of that cute little boy that I love?!!!  Thanks Vicki for letting me use it!

The big annoucement..........

I imagine many of you have already heard that Spellbinders announced the first round qualifiers for their 2012 Design Team today.  I made the cut!!!!  HOORAY!  Yep, I'm trying out again!  I love working with Spellbinders!  They have a fabulous group of people working for them!  I love their product!  They have an incredible current DT!!!!  Awesome designers! Love you all, ladies!!!   I could go on and on.......  
Next step is a project for Round 2 due January 4th.  I'll be putting some serious thought into that project.  THe competition is really tough!

I hope to post something again soon.  No promises though.  I have lots to do yet for Christmas!  Plus a few Spellbinders projects to complete! 

On a weather note!!!!   Can you believe it rained here all day?   It's December in Minnesota!  We rarely get rain this time of year!  It's usually white stuff!!!!  We sure need the rain as it's been over 4 months since we've had more than a tenth or two.  I'm hoping all the roads are dry in the morning so I don't have to drive on ice!

Take care everyone!  Thanks for stopping!!!
