Exciting News and Scrapdango DT Application

I am going to be part of the latest release of Sketches2Scrapbook (iPhone app).  Basically it is an app with a ton of sketches, and then when you click on the sketch you get an example, and the supply list. Very cool!!! I am going to have some cards in the new release, which I can share once the release is out.

Also, I sent in my Scrapdango DT application yesterday. I am really crossing my fingers for this one!! I have been a part of the Scrapdango message board, for almost as long as I have discovered the online scrapbooking community. For the application we had to attach 3 of our favourite layouts - one of them being a double page layout. Now I like doing double page layouts, but I always tend to use a sketch - i.e. Becky Higgins Project 12 Sketches. So I was having a lot of trouble with this one. Once I figured out what pictures I was going to use, I decided that I would make a quick sketch on the computer so I could figure out what size to print the pictures in.

Here is my sketch:

And here's what I came up with: 

Snow Day

It all came together quite quickly with the sketch!

Here is a layout I scrapbooked this weekend, based on Audra's April sketch challenge over at Scrapdango.

The longer story on Owlie - Every year around the time of our anniversary (Nov 10) Steve and I buy a Christmas ornament, or ornaments. The first year we got ornaments from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. The second year we got a set of mini nutcrackers. This past year we got Owlie. We got him a little late, I spotted him in the store, and remembered we had forgotten to get an ornament, and thought Owlie would be perfect, Steve agreed. So we brought him home and went to hang him up, and the string came off his back. I tried to glue it back on, but it just took more "feathers" out of his back. So I decided we would play a game with him, take turns hiding him around the house. The rules were you had to hide him in plain view (not behind anything, not under anything, not in a drawer...etc.), and the person looking had 3 days to find him, if not, the hider could hide him again. I don't think either of us hid him a second time in a row, because after a few days we would give each other clues. His final spot was as the tree topper on our Christmas tree. He is now waiting on top of our bookshelf for next December to come around, and for the game to start again.

Some Favorites

Scrolling back in my blog, I realized that I missed posting my Crowned layouts. So here are a few of my favorites, that haven't made it on my blog yet.
