Design Team Announcement! 50

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, June 5, 2012 @ 7:15 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I'm here to share some really exciting news that I've had to keep a secret! A few months ago, Nadia Cannizzo, the talented Owner/Administrator of the Once Upon A...Sketch challenge site invited me to join her and her uber talented, 28 member International design team beginning July 1st for a one year term! YAHOOOO!!! If you are not familiar with Once Upon A Sketch, it is a monthly scrapbook layout challenge site providing a boat load of inspiration. Please feel free to check it out for yourself ~ click HERE
Of course, I can't share my exciting news all by itself so I played along with the June Once Upon A ... Sketch challenge which also includes a BIRTHDAY theme. 


Here's my take featuring Meredith looking oh so beautiful amongst pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee London Market collection and home made flowers made using Spellbinders Rose Creations and Spiral Blossom One dies.
See the big pink blossom? I have had that Spiral Blossom One die for quite awhile and I wasn't happy how my flowers looked so I put it away for another day. Well, I pulled that bad boy out and decided to give it a try again. I cut not 1 but 2 pieces of cardstock, doubling up and rolled them together. Now, I LOVE that die because you can make a really FULL bloom!
Here's the fab June Once Upon A ... Sketch that I used for inspiration:
Thanks so much for visiting :) Be Sweet!
