Bitten By the Bug Design Team

I am so excited one of my favorite designers Regina Easter chose me to be one of their newest design team members. I don't know what else to say except Thank You!!! Thank You!!! I sent her my submissions a few weeks ago and have been so busy with moving that I had forgotten til I got my internet turned back on today in the new house and checked my email. What a wonderful surprise!!!
Now I just need to get my scrap space unpacked and start having fun with all of the challenges.

Inspiration Class

This is April's Inspiration class Delight, at Scrap Paper Scizzors. I love these flowers, you can't really see in the pictures but they have glimmer mist on them. The flourishes are QK and the flowers are from the Walk In My Garden cricut cartridge. This layout was inspired by Tamara Jensen. She is an awesome designer and I am always inspired when I see her creations.
I made the scallop square with the Design studio. The words are Opposites Attract welded together.May's Inspiration Class: Moments, the scallop border was welded together with the Design Studio using Plantin Schoolbook and the flourishes are Stretch Your Imagination. The words are Opposites Attract. The center of the flowers are Mini Monograms. The circle silhouette is from George.

Sorry the pictures aren't the best. If you would like a kit just call Melissa at the store. Her link to the store is under my favorite places on the right . I also added my email on the left so you can email me directly. Everyone's comments are so sweet and if you want any of the files that I have made I would be happy to email them to you.

I've been tagged....

Lynn: has tagged me! The rules are that you give 7 weird or random facts about yourself, then tag 7 more blogging friends, leaving a message on their site inviting them to play along. (Like in my earlier post, I don't know anyone well enough yet to tag)
My 7 weird and random facts:
1. My husband had to come and pick me up on our wedding day and take me to the church because my parents didn't want me to get married (I was 22).
2. I have been married for 13 years and in that time I have moved about 16 times. Some of my family have told me they won't write my address down with ink because they know I will move again.
3. This grosses my hubby out but I love to eat cottage cheese with beef stew and I hate to eat fruit with cottage cheese YUCK!!!
4. My husband baptized me after we got married and what's really cool is the church we are at now was given the baptistry that I was baptized in to put in their new building. Although now hubby says he should have held me under a little longer.
5. I have a rock that looks like a potato that my grandpa gave me when I was 8.
6. I don't have my scrap layouts in books yet, I can't find one that I really like, because I want them all to match. My hubby says I'm crazy!!!
7. As soon as I come in from outside I have to take my shoes off, and my children are the same way. Drives hubby crazy!!!

' Arte y pico ' award

I am late in posting this, I have been really busy with Caleb. He had surgery to have his port taken out and he is doing really good.
I have been awarded this by Michelle. Thanks Michelle you are so sweet. You can check out her blog here: She is very talented!!! and I would love to meet her someday. I really haven't been blogging long enough to know who to pass this onto.Most of the time I'm just a lurker on some really awesome blogs. So for now I will give this award to all the talented ladies that inspire me every day. Hopefully soon I will add links to five blogs when I have time and I don't have a 3 year old yelling for Mommy every 2 minutes!!!

Thank You!!!

My Acrylic album was nominated by Michelle from the Cricut Messageboards and they emailed me to see if I wanted to be featured. I am still in shock. I don't know what else to say, I only started this blog because my hubby wanted me to.
Thank you Michelle
