Scrappy Chic Design Team!

I'm a bit delayed in blogging about some terrific news.  I've been selected to be a part of Scrappy Chic's Design Team!   The team was announced on Feb. 4 and I am thrilled, honored and humbled to have been chosen.  I hear that the store received a great amount of wonderful submissions that made the choice a difficult one to make. 

We had our first team meeting last week and are well on our way to creating our first batch of layouts/projects for the store.  It was great getting to know the rest of the team (Staci Compher, Kim Galea and Michelle Leaf-Racelis) who each have a unique style of their own.  I was certainly inspired by their work, so I know you will be too. 

The layouts that I submitted for the Design Team call are below.  The first is my favorite because I adore this photo of Lilly (taken by her mommy, Wendie DeLano).  I also used one of my favorite techniques, handmade flowers crafted from torn paper.  The second was inspired by a Vera Wang advertisement (I often take inspiration from magazine ads) and I love the soft color and pattern mixing.  The message is beautiful too.  The third is probably the farthest from my scrap style (a challenge to use chipboard).  I worked really hard to mesh my style into it and I was really happy with the result.  Also, I love the photo of Avery that I took in my backyard this summer.  It brings back memories of a fun day with her and how much she loved wearing the pretty dress I bought for her, even playing soccer in it!  

I'll keep you posted on my monthly contributions to the Design Team.

I know I have already told you but- CONGRATS Sister! You are an incredible artist and I am so very proud of you. All of these layouts are beautiful, and of course I love the one of my sweet girl. I think I need a duplicate of it (or the original if you can part) to be framed and displayed in my home :0) Are these subtle hints getting me anywhere?
