Hell has frozen!!

WOW, these are crazy times, my friends, crazy times!
I am so glad that I don't have to keep this a secret anymore.
And I am so excited about this opportunity!
A big thanks to the Memory Makers staff for taking a chance on me!

You can see the announcement and meet the rest of the new Masters here.
Congrats to all the Masters and runners up!_________________________________________________________________

In other news, it is my sweet friend Katie's birthday today!
I think she is 22.
So for her birthday I think everybody needs to go vote for her layout that made it into the finals (again) in the last week of the BHG Ultimate Summer Challenge.
Her layout is the "Put your head on my shoulder" masterpiece and you can vote here.
Happy birthday Katie!
_________________________________________________________________
I have more layouts to share!
These are a couple of layouts I made with the August collection from Scrap in Style.
This collection is called The Urban Prep and it is filled with American Crafts patterned papers, Making Memories puffy letters, those American Crafts glitter thickers that I am addicted to (how lucky for me! that brings me to a total of like 4 packs of these!), Fontworks chipboard and a stamp, etc. etc.
Good stuff I tell ya!!


It has been a crazy week (good, but crazy) & I am looking forward to the weekend!
I hope you have a great one!
