Seize the Day!

The snow is starting to melt and the weather is beginning to be so enjoyable. Despite the things I have to do, I can't resist hanging out outside just a little bit.

I am excited at the thought of everything turning green and flowering. I don't believe that it will come soon enough for my liking.

But despite all of that spring fever that has built up, I have been busy with many little projects, class preparation and some things to do for the heck of it. Lots of things to talk about in the next little bit.

So, this past weekend was Kelly Malako's Scrapbook Savvy Retreat in beautiful Lake Louise, Alberta. Kelly, I hope all went well!

And another exciting bit of news from a friend of mine. Jessi Lute of Innisfail has been working hard to bring you a great little classroom called The Inked Barn. All that hard work has paid off and she has posted her very first class! How exciting for her! I wish her lots of luck and success.

Psst....if you are up for some cool classes, check her out. I think she'll do just fine. :)

Oh, and of course, I have to say it again, go check out the Prima blog because there is a great big CONTEST!!!

Prima wants to see how you reuse some of their packaging for other projects by Going Green!

There is one grand prize of $200 in Prima product and 2 honorable mentions with prize packs valued at $100.

I highly recommend you give it a try because if you win, you will not be disappointed. Contest closes June 30th, so get your butts in gear! Here's my version to get you going...
