REALLY REALLY REALLY Excited!!!

I have been walking around in a daze all day today - I am so excited!! Nicole Seitler, owner of Sugarplum Paperie, has asked me to be a member of her Hybrid Creative Team!! YAY ME!!! Can you believe it?? I don't even know what to say! I love love love Nicole's digital kits and I've already made several projects with them before getting this great news. I'll have lots more to share with you in the future!! Now, I realize that right now the majority of my blog readers are "traditional" papercrafters, but not to worry - I'll still be doing my "regular" stuff. And the great thing about hybrid projects is that they can easily be done old school style with whatever tangible products you already have. But, who knows...maybe some of you will be inspired to try your hand at this new SUPER fun Hybrid thing!

So, to start things off right, I thought I'd share one of my first projects as a member of the Sugarplum Paperie Creative Team...
I keep a little notebook on my desk that I jot down my creative ideas in. I also write down things I need to remember: where I purchased a particular digital element, measurements for a card sketch I really like, ideas for card sketches or scrapbook layouts, etc etc etc. Well, my little notebook is full and getting pretty worn out. I figured as a new, important DESIGNER, I needed an official "Book of Ideas". I used one of my favorite of Nicole's kits, Twitter Blossom, to make this cover for a plain old composition book. I used Mod Podge to attach it to the front cover. I also made a matching pen cover!! Oh, and because it doesn't really show up in the picture, the quote on the cover reads "The world is a canvas to the imagination - Henry David Thoreau". Hope you like it!!

Congrats! =) I'm so happy for you! I heart this notebook. Do you create all of your projects with Photo Shop? I never ever tried Digi Scrapbooking so I was just curious. I saw on the news that there was a brush fire on Maui. Hope you and your family are ok. Take care! =)
