Exciting News!!!

Hello Everybody!! I'm back!!!!!!!!  It seems like forever since I have had a post. I think that was the longest since I started blogging a year ago. Which reminds me.......be on the look out for some birthday Candy...coming this week! ;-))  

So here is my exciting news!!! Well, I have lots really...but the first one is - I am on Suzanne Deans Color Me Creative DT! Yeah!! Our first challenge as DT is a photo color/inspiration. So use something with pinks/greens/creams or white along with your interpretation of the photo.





This is a digi image from Heart Song Designs. I do not have much in terms of "Baby" and what I love about Digis....I can find one, print it instantly in most cases and I'm good to go!  They also do not take up space in my craft room which is always great. I don't have enough space in there as is! I have of course used COPICS to color this image in. I'm sorry...since this DT is based on Copics I had meant to record which ones I used....but I put them all away and then it dawned on me. I can't remember them all offhand either because they are not my usual color combinations!  The DP paper that I have used is from Crate paper and the solid CS is from CTMH. I believe the buttons are also from CTMH.  I kept it simple mostly because it is such a large image. Being a digi I could have sized it smaller but I liked this size. I also thought this would look really cute as a wall hanging. Hung with ribbon and a bow. Cute.

So I do hope you join us in the challenge, check it out at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group! Challenge goes until March 18th. There are some yummy prizes including a pack of cryogen paper!! I have to tell you, I have been using Papertrey Ink paper pretty much since I starting coloring. I have tried a few (neenah, xpress blend, and Gina K) with so/so results. However, I FINALLY tried Cryogen last night and I LOVE IT!  I can actually see myself using this paper regularly. Not only does it have a nice shimmer to it, but it blends so nicely. I'm a fan.

So on to my exciting weekend! Last night I got the pleasure to meet my new bosslady, Suzanne Dean! ha!  Suzanne is in town this weekend to teach some Copic classes at my local scrapbook store. Ten of us went out to dinner last night to a Japanese Restaurant. We had a very nice time and I got to meet a few other bloggers.


Tomorrow I will be taking Suzannes Copic class and I can't wait. Lots of blogger friends will be there, some I already know and a few I can't wait to meet.

I have a few post for this week...so be on the lookout! I was away but I wasn't totally slacking!! ha!

Hugs and have a great weekend,

Congrats Tracy on your awesome news!! I'm so jealous that you get to work with Suzanne! I don't know her personally, but I can tell she is sweet and awesome just from her blog and the comments she leaves. I so wish I lived in Florida so I could take her class. Maybe one day her travels will bring her to Oklahoma...who wants to come to OK though, LOL! Great card girl! Hugs, Rosemary
