So many good things...where do I start ?!

Well hello all my friends in blog land. Let me start by saying wow what a few weeks that I have had. :) I am bursting with excitement because....you'll never guess....nope you won't. Okay I will just spill the beans. I, me, Christine, have been published ! I have been published in Ready Set Create and will be published next month in Scrap-n-art. I submit things often and think "well what the heck, might as well go for it"..but someone actually contacting me and wanting to feature some of my work...never thought it would happen. So for all you hopeless romantic scrappers...keep trying or start trying. And you girls who have already been there..done that...just smile and put up with my giddiness...it will wear off soon.

My featured work in RSC









This next layout will be featured in Scrap-in-Art. This was quite out of the box for me. I was having a hard time with something and really felt like getting my feelings out and done with...Funny it was quite therapeutic and paid off as well. :)
Now for the rest of the goodies :)
Umm well I would like to thank Laura Bloom for her generous RAK to me. She had a contest to give a name to her hand made doll and she chose the name that I suggested. The RAK was for a cute little stamp and guess what...she must have forgotten that because she sent me an entire box FULL of goodies. So much beautiful new paper and embellies. Thanks you are such a sweetie !
AND THE BEST FOR LAST Well it is that time to have my annual fundraising crop for Autism Speaks at The scrapbook Oasis. Karen the most fabulous owner has agreed to host it. Thank you Karen. How did I ever get that lucky? Here are the details: The crop is Sat. April 19th from 10 am - 6 pm. The cost is only $20 and it includes lunch, a small scrap goody bag, and snacks. I want to thank Freckle Friends, Making Memories, Glue Dots and Cherry Arte who have donated prizes for raffles. My dear friend, Jennifer will also be donating a gift certificate to Stampin' up.

Congratulations Christine! That's so exciting :) I'm bummed, though. I wanted to go to your crop, but I'll be out-of-town that weekend. I thought that we'd actually be able to get together! Darn! Good luck with it. I'm glad to see so many great sponsors!
