Best Start to my Birthday Month!

Good monday morning, everyone!!!

I've got some BIG news today!! I've been jumping up and down since I found out and am so glad I no longer have to keep it a secret! This really has been the best news everrrrr!!!

I'm now an Oddie!!!

I'm on the Some Odd Girl Design Team! Woohoooo!!! It's announced today at the SOG blog too!

I first found out when I was in line for a Harry Potter ride in the Orlando Universal Studios. I grabbed my sister's arm and kept saying, "Oh my God, oh my God...can you read this email?" I even sent the email to JoAnn to make sure I wasn't dreaming. LOL! She knows how much I love love LOVE Kristy's stamps.

I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and it must have been the right time for moi. I had been applying forever, teehee! After lots and lots of usage and practice and determination...well, it truly is a dream come true! But ****SQUEAL*****, I'm still pinching myself!!!!!

(Okay, I am trying to prevent myself from sounding like a total idiot so let me calm down for a moment :)....) *big breath in, big breath out*

Anyway, back to the task at hand. Today marks a new sketch challenge for the month of April.

And here's my take on it:


I used Love Letter Mae - isn't she beautiful and romantic? The very first time I saw her, I couldn't wait to color up that hair! I paired her up with these papers from the new Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm. I thought the ones with the handwriting were perfect. The banners were from Amy Tangerine's new line too. And I used the crinkled ribbon that Amy had given me. I added some eyeshadow to Mae and doodling along the borders for more "writing" effect.

I hope you play along! This sketch was wonderful to work with! Please see the SOG Blog for more deets and inspiration!

And to the people in line with me that one Friday morning in Orlando, I'm so sorry for the random squealing you heard. (You may also have seen my jumping up and down, BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!).
