A Great Big WHOOOOP!

I can't believe that my layout submission for TMZ Blog sketch for week #8 was the chosen one! (it may not be posted in the blog yet, but the sketch is there) How cool is that!!? I sure didn't think mine would be chosen after seeing the other entries. Although, it probably helped that there were only about half of the entries compared to the week before. Boy, I bet Rebecca had a tough time choosing that week! Better her than me! I haven't picked up my RAK, so I'll have to update on that later. Here's my submission for Week #8, although I've added a few brads here & there since this was taken, I'll try to get a new picture posted. Everything here is from the line of Little Yellow Bicycle. It's one of so many styles. It's awesome!

I also can't believe that I won at Bingo on KT Crafts from Kristy Lee! She is a queen of scrappers, if you ask me. She's altered a bucket (it's too dang cute!) & I get that filled with goodies from her stash! Sometimes (OK, a lot of times) I whine, cry, snort & ball about not getting anything of mine picked for a magazine publication, but Kristy Lee is one of those that it doesn't bother me if they pick her over me. She totally deserves it. I think a lot of people deserve it & I'm not just talking from my own work, I mean, there has to be other submissions from the thousands that they get that are good enough to publish, besides the multiple submissions from one designer. I know lots of designers are just as discouraged as I am, that they won't even bother submitting in the first place because of who they always see in the magazines. Sorry...enough from that soapbox platform. It just reminds me so much like high school.

The RAK's have been rolling in from the KT Crafts Online Crop & they're not done yet! I've gotten some amazing stuff & those "Little g" Stamps are the cutest darn things! I need to get to making some cards that I can use these on! I hadn't been able to participate in one of their crops before, so this was a first for me & I've been a member there since almost a year now! It was very fun & exciting! I didn't know what to expect, I was having a blast! I learned some very cool & exciting new techniques from some of the DT members, that you will be seeing in the coming days, weeks or maybe even months. That's how innovative I think they are.

Well, it's the day before Easter & we have snow like it was Christmas, or something. BUT, we didn't have any snow for Christmas! I realize that Easter is earlier this year than it has been in like 95 years, but we've had several Easters in March in recent years. I'm just going crazy for Spring to get here, not just by the calendar, because it is according to that, but by the temperature outside. I have been noticing all the Robins in our yard for the past couple of weeks. There's dozens of them. It's really fascinating to me to watch the birds. I love it! Last year, we had dozens of Cedar Waxwings feeding & that was the first time I'd ever seen them. I'm hoping to draw in some Orioles this year. They have eluded me so far, but I guess I'll just have to get the oranges & the water feeder out there a little sooner than in the past.

And so, this is enough blogger blab for today. Hope everyone has a wonderful & blessed Easter!
