Back in February, before I had a blog, my friend Steph was entering a different challenge almost every day in hopes of winning a big prize during the Paper Trey Ink anniversary celebration. She hounded me everyday to enter one, but I never found the time. Plus, I didn't have a blog. But now my kids are back in pre-school and I've been carving out time to make a card or do a scrapbook page in the morning.
There's a website that hosts a layout challenge every week. So, here is my first one (you can click to enlarge)! It's at CPS.
I've had these die cuts for a couple of months now. I liked the colors and I found coordinating self-sticking ribbon.
Then, since I had everything out, I put this one together real quick.
THIS is really why I wanted to start a blog....so I'm glad to be gettin' going with it!
Plus, yesterday, my friend Bonnie recognized my blog and gave me a friendship award on her blog! How nice was that??
