Along the Lines of Really Cool

I received an email a couple of months back from the owners of Scrappin' Patch, a popular scrapbooking store and site in New Zealand.  They run an annual competition called "Stars in Their Eyes" where a very cool grand prize is given away.  Think along the eyes of design star (one of my favorite shows)! Each of their talented design team members gets to chose a "star" for the contest participants to emulate.  Participants then create a layout utilizing the same style of the star, while not scraplifting. 

I was humbled and honored when the very sweet Annelie picked me as her star.  I actually thought maybe they meant to send the email to someone else.  LOL!  How cool is that!  Annelie has a thing for Pink Paislee so we share the same guilty pleasure! 

I wanted to say thank you and welcome the girls who are visiting my blog!  It was so thrilling for me to be a part of something that is happening on the other side of the globe!  I can't wait to see all the amazing work the talented participants will create...they have rocked it so far with the other stars!

Annelie wanted me to define my style and it is always hard for me.  I love paper and goodies, gaining the most inspiration there!  Here is a recent layout that I shared on the Pink Paislee blog!  Lovin' the Artisan Element Swirls and the new ones are to die for...I promise you will love them!

I gave some insight into how I created this layout over at the Pink Paislee blog.  I used Queen Bee paper, Flip Notes, Die-cuts, Cork and Stamps as well as the Artisan Element Swirls.  While you are there, check out the other girl's work and the new collections.  Inspiration galore!

Be sure to look at the post below to take part in the My Scrapbook Nook Blog Hop...talk about great prizes!  If you leave a comment for that, be sure to put in under that post!  it runs until August 7th! 

Thanks Annelie and Scrappin Patch for making me blush and letting me take part in your fabulous contest!  I am honored!
