There are seven opportunities to win a prize. This contest runs from March 1st through August 31st for a total of six monthly prizes, plus there will be ONE overall grand prize winner.

Recent Happenings

I am going to try and update my blog at least once a week. We will see how this goes. It shouldn't be hard to remember because Michelle over at Simply Obsessed has been good about reminding us or asking if we have updated our blogs. You should also go over and peek at their March monthly kit because it is awesome. I can't wait to get mine. actually here's a picture of it. Jaime and Shauna picked some great stuff for us to play with this month.

I have metioned a project I did for my Nana's birthday and I want to share it with you, so here it is:

I was really pleased with how it came out. My Nana loved it so much she had it framed and it is hanging up at their house now.

Also this is an older LO I did but I have been saving it to give to my Nana because I wanted to put it on a canvas. I am chicken at trying new things so it took me forever to try, but I think it came out really nice.

I do have some other things that I have finished but I can't share them yet until after the decision for the DT is over at Angels Wings and Crafty Things

Another really cool thing going right now one of my favorite sites Scrapbook Goddess is for the monthly challenge, the owner Sonja was kind enough for those of us who signed up for to send out to us a bunch of goodies from her store and all we have to do is make 1 LO for the monthly challenge. Let me tell you she sent enough products to make a lot of LO's so I am really excited about it. I need to get my rear in gear and get my pictures printed and my LO done.

Also there is a birthday card swap going on right now and there is still time to sign up, sign up ends on the 15th of March so if you like swaps and are interested, sign up and come and play with us, it will be fun! Besides that you can order so much fun stuff from the online store.

By the way my links were working for the websites but you can go to any of them on My Favorite Scrappy Sites. Sorry about that.
