Scrapbook Steals Guest Designer & Giveaway

As I am sure all of you know, I am in LOVE with Scrapbook Steals. I mean who doesn't love getting great products for a great price to feed the scrapping habit. Well I was asked to be a guest designer for the weekly sketch from them and I was floored. I mean I just think of myself as a sub-par scrapper, nothing fancy just well basic stuff. I am still trying to figure out who I am with my scrapping style.

So there I was about two months ago, surfing Facebook like we all do and I get a message (I never get messages), thinking its probably spam I open it being skeptical. Much to my surprise it was the designer for Scrapbook Steals, after a brief moment of "I really hope she meant to send this to me" I replied "YES!!"  As I waited {impatiently} I just knew she had the wrong person but she didn't and I was all set to be the May guest designer.

Fast Forward a month and a half, I have been given my collection to work with Graphic 45 Curiosity Shoppe. Again panic sets in, I am not a dark collection kind of girl but knew this would just push my boundaries and I would rock it.

So I stared at this collection for a week, went to a NSD crop and stared at it. I just decided to start cutting different pieces into different sizes and I would mat my photos and go from there. I mean I had NO rhyme or reason to anything. I was just trying to do the best I could with the collection to display it and show the great patterns it had.

Well that is what I came up with and I had to walk away from it for a weekend before I really liked it. I added some much needed bright colors to the balloon and the title. I love the fussy cutting I did with the paisley paper and think over all it came out great.

SOOOO in order to celebrate my step forward in the Scrapping world, I am giving away the below page kit that is put together at my Local Scrapbook Store (Scrapbook Generation).
