She's coming! She's really coming!!

While there are many scrapbooking 'celebrities' I would love to meet, spend time with and/or create with, there are only three people that are at the top of my list.  I couldn't even place then first second or third ... i just want to meet them.  So far I have been lucky enough to meet two of them - Donna Downey and Tim Holtz.  Their classes were inspiring and fun.  So much learned, knowledge shared and techniques applied. 

While the third one has yet to be met, I am so excited that I get to spend another weekend creating with Donna Downey at The Scrapbox.  Sooooooo excited.  Sooooooo thrilled.  As always, her projects will be awesome and full of wonderful mixed media techniques.  My promise to myself is to let go.  Just let it go and enjoy the process.  No analyzing.  No well thought out plans.  Just letting the paint fall where it may.  So easy for others - so hard for me.  I am definitely a Type A who is trying to become well acquainted with the Type B I know is hiding within me.

The project teasers are so tempting.  Can you be tempted enough to call the 'box and join us?


 Butterfly Moments

Heart's Intention

PS - if you're wondering who the third person is, it's Ali Edwards.  I love, love, love her too.

AE PageMaps Reveal: U & I

I am a bit late posting this as I was waiting for the pictures to be e-mailed.  Seems my iPhone quality photos just don't do it for everyone.  hahaha.  Alas, better late than never, right?

April's PageMaps Calendar sketch was created with the oh-so-lovely Stella & Rose collection by My Mind's Eye.  Not at all the colours I planned to focus on, I decided to pull out the greens after finding this picture of my sister and I.  We have many like this.  It's actually one of our quirky traditions - taking photos at an arms length.  Even when people say "would you like me to take that for you?" we decline.  It's just one of the things that make us 'US.'   One of the best things about this paper line is the ability to work with so many different colour options.  Blues, reds, pinks, greens.  It really has alot of versatility.

As with every page maps calendar layout, it means a monthly Inspiration Sale at Auntie Em's.  Check out the store's blog for details.  Also, don't forget to take a quick visit over to Lorena's blog to see her intrepretation of this months sketch.

In the meantime, I leave you with happy and scrappy thoughts.  May is still weeks away and my mind is already spinning with ideas for May's sketch.  Can't wait to do the layout ... and get out and get the photos I'm going to need for the task.  Should be a fun one.
