Great News and a Layout

If you know me then you know I love to take pictures and I love to scrapbook. I love paper and all that goes with it. It's my passion. About a month ago, I set out to find some exposure in the scrapbooking world. I found a website that posts current calls for design teams and challenges and came across an opening at Scrap Again. I decided what the heck! I'll apply to be on their design team. Sure enough, a few weeks later I got a call from Randi, one of the owners, telling me I had been chosen. I was ecstatic! From that point I was checking the mail every day waiting for my first set of kits to arrive so I could actually start "designing." When I got home yesterday, the box was sitting on my front porch. I could hardly wait to put the pretties to use, so that is what I have done. 
After I put the children to bed I got busy! Everything (except the flourish stamp, which is from Autumn Leaves) is from my January Designer Kit. I had so much fun finding a way to use the beads that came with the kit and am pretty satisfied with what I came up with. And it was EASY! So easy! All I did was mark where I wanted each bead with a pencil and then with a needle and thread I fastened them on to the page. It took me less than 30 minutes to whip out this layout. Now I can go to bed happy. :)
