Design Star, Goodies to share and Good peeps!

Well so much... a lot lately to post these days, for me.  I know..kooky huh?  I am liking it!  First off, Tallyscrapper has a challenge up to be the next DESIGN STAR!  So I thought, what they hey, Let's give that bugger a try!  So yep I did!  Here are my layouts.  Do you want to give it a whirl too?  Go on?  Give it a shot!

Also GOOD NEWS!  If you haven't heard already Scrap it forward  is running full speed ahead with a challenge ready to go!  A prize is waiting..JUST FOR YOU! Check it out...perhaps you may win. :0)

Speaking of Challenges I decided to participate in yet another challenge on a blog that I discovered just the other day. It is called Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog .  There Melly, one of the DT members, posted what she called a "wee sketch", which could be interpreted in any way, I suppose. So here is my take on it.  Wish me luck ;0)
Now on to the Goodies and good Peeps. The goodies and the good peeps go together you see. At CHA we met dozens of good people and as you can see got a lot of goodies for my crop to benefit Autism Speaks which will happen in April.  This is only a fraction of what we were able to get our hands on and the best part is we had great people and companies willing to send us more!  People like Miss Jenni Bowlin :0) even showed interest!  I have to say that the most beautiful person inside and out that I met is a woman, an artist, an inspiration, named Doveen Schecter. the founder of  Dove of the East.  She has lived the most extraordinary life, her artwork is amazing and her heart is of pure GOLD.  Within 5 minutes of meeting me she was handing me over a beautiful scrapbook collection to giveaway during my fundraising crop. No questions asked. She just listened to my story, and had faith.  Thank you Doveen. You are beautiful. Here is a pic of Doveen, Illyse and I.  Please go and take a look at her site.  I will also be linking her to our challenge blog!

I feel blessed to know that there are still people who can have faith in others and be willing to lend a helping hand.  We all need to reach out to one another. Big or small gestures always make a difference.  Much love.
Thanks to everyone who make a difference in my life

Good luck on the Design Star Challenge. Those scrapbook pages are beautiful and I must say...I could not help but look at your kid picture and think of Adam with a wig. I miss you my friend. It has been one of those crazy crazy weeks. I am so looking forward to the Autism Crop. Can't wait can't wait. Great looking prizes too.
