Back by Popular Demand

So the demand is only from two people but it is so. Rachel and Barb want me to blog again so blog again I shall.
Nothing much going on here. Been in a scrapping funk for a while. I just look and look and look and nothing comes to mind. Hopefully that has all changed now and the creativity will pour though my veins.

Being that I am not the joiner of these things, I was threatened by Rachel (hmmm - that seems to be a trend, come to think of it! haha!) to join Bad Girls Top Designer Challenge. Thinking I had many hours left to create for my class, I found out that I actually only had a little over 3.5 hours. Because I was at Katies, I was at a loss. Of course, she was willing to open all of her supplies to me but I just wasn't feeling so I made the executive decision to go home. An hour later, I shut myself in my studio and began creating. Surprisingly, I did it. I created a 12x12 layout in an hour. A definate first for me. I have to admit that I felt like Katie looks when she creates. She just slaps it down and goes with it. I had to fight my natural instinct to plan but it paid off. I made it to Round 2 along with my 4 other talented Ya-Ya's. Congrats to us.
