A Day of Goodies

Who doesn't like to get goody mail?!?!?  On Monday, I got two packages:  one is an envelope with Felt Fusion from Creating Inspirations and the other one is a double page layout by Leah of SplitcoastStampers. 

I've been seeing the Felt Fusion line on scrapbooking magazines, and I've been wanting to try it.  It so happened that Creating Inspirations is having their closeout sale, and everything is 50% off, including sale items.  I can't wait to play with these!  Better take advantage of their sale, ladies :) 

I belong to a 12x12 Page Layout Monthly Scrapbook Club in SplitcoastStampers The members are assigned a month where they create a 2 page layout to be distributed to the other members.  So basically, if there are 12 members, you create 11 double page layouts (12 to include yourself) of the same design for the month you're assigned with.  Then you receive a double page layout every month (except your month), a total of 11 pages.  I like this system because you're assured of receiving something each month.  Just pray that there won't be any flakers (because the one in charge of February is one).  This is my second year being in this club and I love it.  I enjoy seeing what other people make.  Then it makes me ask myself "Why didn't I think of that???"

Last week, hubby bought a small crate of tangerines from Walmart.  And I told him, those are too many for us.  But when I saw the wood crate, I told him, go ahead and buy it.  Hahaha!  So yesterday, I started altering this wood crate, however it's not finished yet.  I figured it would be perfect to put in all the cards that I have made .

Also yesterday, I was able to finish another layout, this time a hybrid, showing my sister's graduation photos.  I'm really happy with the outcome!  I'm planning to submit it with a designer application this week, so I won't show the page yet.  Here's a sneak peak, though.  My goal this year is to get published in a magazine and/or become a designer for a few months or so.  I'd like to try something different this time.

Wish me luck!
