Well, hello, all!
Today's Twinkling Tuesday is a PAR-TAY, let me tell ya! Some fun stuff going on!
First and foremost, as it is Twinkling Tuesday, I am happy to announce that Twinkling Tuesday now has it's own blog! We are looking forward to seeing you there too! Madelynn is over the moon as I'm sure you can guess :) The challenge team will all be posting on there so too so it will be fun and a great place for us to hear about your take on the sketches as well!
This week's sketch was SUPER fun for me. I love this one. I had a great time creating it and was really excited about using one of my Rachelle Anne Miller stamps from Stampavie.
Today is also special because the Twinkling Tuesday Challenge Team has added another "Twinklette", so without further adieu, please join me in welcoming Heather Schlatter to the Twinkle Team! Check out her blog and leave her some love, guys! She's not only an awesome stamper but a very sweet and fun friend that I'm really enjoying getting to know!
Ok, so today is also special because it marks the ONE YEAR anniversary, to the DAY, of my Blog. Yep, one year ago exactly was when it all started. I was so new and green to bloggin...I can't believe all I have learned and accomplished since then, I really can't. Most of all, and here's where I get teary-eyed, but seriously? I can't even BEGIN to tell you how meaningful and wonderful it's been getting to know so many amazing people. I never thought that I'd have so many close friends through all of this and it's nice because you guys "get" it, you know?
So many wonderful and exciting opportunities have blessed me this year, too, especially within the last 6 months. I am so, so grateful beyond words to the women who have given me the chance to design for them with their beautiful stamps and products, and the AMAZINGLY talented ladies who I am privileged to work along side. There was never more inspiration, laughs, and friendship that has touched my life than in these last 6 months. THANK YOU. EVERYONE. TRULY.
On that note, I thought I'd give back a little...especially in light of the fact that you have all been so supportive not only of MY creative spirit, but of my daughter's. These past few weeks watching her grow in her own creativity and loving every minute of her "Twinkle Team" has been the biggest blessing to her. So, not only does it just so happen to be a year to the day, but it's in her honor, too that I am happy to be offering up some fabulous BLOG CANDY this week!
Now, it wouldn't be a TRUE reflection of me and the fantastic year I've had unless there were some offerings that represented a few of my favorite things, right? So here's what the Lucky winner will receive in this little package:
Heidi Swapp Butterflies (um, hello that was a MUST), Set of 4 Cuttlebug mini embossing folders (there is a cupcake on one...gotta have cupcakes!), SU Flip Flop wheel (for those of you who don't know, Havaianas are ALL I wear from like April to October!), Heidi Swapp PINK Edge Distresser (cuz I'm the pinkgirl!), and YES! THOSE ARE 2 BRAND NEW COPIC SKETCH MARKERS you see there! PINK, of course! (R81 and R85) As if that weren't exciting enough, Julia from The Little Paper Shop was UBER generous and offered up the Tu-Tu Riffic stamp set for me to give out! DD is totally into dancing and poms, and I do love to dance myself (much to the embarrassment of the kiddos LOL!)....so THERE ya have it!
