Not Just a Hobby It's a PASSION!

 I decided to document my crafting space and my scrapping hobby for this one!


Part of my journaling is a bucket list of things I would love to accomplish in scrapbooking. I am happy to say the few modest ones I wrote in January I have already reached, I am so excited!! Time to dream a little more and see where my hobby and passion will take me :) I'd love to enter this in the Another Freakin Scrap Challenge Bucket List Challenge!


I would also love to enter this into the New Beginnings challenge at Zeus and Zoe. I have recently made my first manufacturer's design team and this year feel like I have a new beginning, new chapter in my scrapbooking life. I truly love doing it, so it is an honor to be chosen to work with a company that likes my work well enough to represent them. It is humbling and very exciting. I feel blessed. The other requirement they had for the challenge was the use of a stencil. I used my Prima flourish stencil and modeling paste, which I further inked and highlighted again with gesso. I have also used distress crackle paint on the chippie and would love to enter this in the Berry71Bleu You Color My World Challenge as well.

I also like to make a few cards with the leftovers from a layout, so I did this card for a little boy's first birthday. I was trying to figure out what to add to it, and a rosette always works better for a boy's card. I remembered there was a rosette challenge over at Quick Quotes, ending very soon, good thing I worked on this card tonight!!

Saw it on CSI and had to come on here and comment.Your layout is divine! so soft and pretty. For a moment I thought it was my daughter (dressmaker) as her email is celtic knotted.What a co-incidence.
