Card and Some News!

Last night I had the fun idea to initiate a card making race with my scrappy friend Katrina.  She had mentioned on her Facebook that she was pondering going to bed or should she make another card.  So I dared to make one. And then I thought "I want to make one too.  I'm going to race her!"  And so we did.  And it was fun.  And it gave me an idea to do this again with more people.  Speed scrapping is a blast when you need the motivation!

Here is the card I created:

Do you realize how hard it is to tie a bow when you are in a race??? I was screaming because I'm so competitive.  It was pretty hilarious.  And then I had to dump out the flowers in my jar so I had a huge flower mess everywhere.  I don't think I could create like that all the time but it certainly motivates you do some gluing!  That's for sure!

Are you ready for some news???  I am so excited to say that I'll be taking on a new role at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.  Our dear DT Coordinator Nancy is stepping out of this position to continue with her creativity more and I have been asked to fill her shoes.  It will be hard! But I am so very happy for this new venture and thrilled to stay with SFTIO for however much longer.  I love the concept and the content of the kits each month! 

Speaking of SFTIO, we are also having a blog hop tomorrow!  I will be giving away a prize and you will also have a chance to win the current Inspiration kit.  I'll also be sharing another one of my layouts.  So be sure to swing by tomorrow and see where to start the hop! 

RANDOM FACTOID... I just received some Hometown Summer goodies from Pink Paislee.  I opened up the punch-outs bag and was looking through the little cards.  There is one card that says 'Bellingham, WA Soda Bottling Co.' on it! WHAAAAT??? That is my town!  I live in Bellingham WA!  How cool is that? Except we don't really have a soda bottling company.  Maybe many moons ago though.  Imagine what my page might be about now using that cool little find!
