Saying Goodbye Is Hard To Do...

Well...I guess since we're on the brink of a new year, it's only natural that changes are going to occur. Although I am looking forward to what the future holds, I am also sad to see a few things go.

First of all, one of my favorite online scrappy places is closing at the end of the month. I have been a member of scrap-diner since September 2007. I have served as a Guest Designer and Design Team Member for the site, gained a ton of inspiration, and loved chatting there. It was my daily hangout spot in cyberspace, but sadly Sher has decided to close and concentrate on her family. I certainly understand, but I'll miss those crazy ladies and I'm sad to see it go!

Secondly, DreamGirls Challenge blog has closed...again for family reasons. I love having had the opportunity to design for this challenge blog since the beginning! Such a talented group of women...I wish them all the best of everything!

Thirdly, I am stepping down from Shimmerz Education Team. This was an incredibly difficult decision; as you may know from visiting my blog, I loved being on this team and I truly believe in the product. The DT and EdT are truly amazing designers and I will miss working beside them. Life is funny...just when you are happily traveling one path, another one appears and you have a decision to make...well, I have been presented with an amazing opportunity (one that I'll reveal here later). I felt that although I was happy on my path, I would kick myself if I didn't travel the other one.

I wish everyone at Shimmerz all the best!!

By the way, did you see their feature on Scrapbook Trends' Blog? I was so happy to see that ST picked one of my projects to showcase!

So in ending this sad post...I leave you with the last of the projects that I created as a member of Shimmerz Education Team...



I used baby's breath shimmerz spritz on the journaling spot and concrete on the mat on this New Years Card

This card was super fun to make! I received a martini glass shaped invitation in the mail this past summer. Although I couldn't make the party, I saved the invitation because I knew I wanted to use it later down the line...

I cut apart all of the pieces, traced them onto cardstock and patterned paper and then pieced them back together...Watermelon Martini anyone?

I sprayed the glass with baby's breath spritz and then swiped under the sea blingz across it.

I painted the "drink" part with hottie pink blingz and used the same colors on the journaling spot. I loved the way this turned out!


Here's to new beginnings...

Stay tuned...
