Change is a good thing

I have had a few changes going on lately that I would like to share with you. First off, I have stepped down from the Cooking it Up with Katie challenge blog in order to explore some new options and free up some personal time. My thanks to Katie and the team for always making me feel welcome! I will be by from time to time to participate in your great challenges!!

I joined a group of very talented ladies called the PaperTrey Chicks and I am excited to be sharing my love of PaperTrey Ink with them! This is a group that formed from the PTI forums and, while still in the early stages, has a lot of opportunities for me to really get the creative juices flowing! Since I {heart} all things PaperTrey Ink, I know this is going to be a lot of fun!! Here is a card I created today using one of my favorite PTI sets: On My Couch Additions:

The layout is based on this week's sketch from i{heart}2stamp. Papers are from Bo Bunny and SEI; images and sentiment from PTI. Doesn't it look like a cozy place to curl up with a good book! I can't wait to hit the PTI booth at CHA a little over a week from now!!

I also want to let you know that I am honored to have been asked to be a Guest Design Team member for the month of August over at Shirley's 2 Girls! August will be all about Back to School and there are some new goodies being released I can't wait to share with you!! So be sure to be on the look-out for my guest posts here in August.

And finally, a new Design Team has been chosen for the next round of challenges at Heart 2 Heart! While I am sad to see my 1st team leave, I am excited to start working with the new team in August. Watch the challenge blog for introductions of these new members over the next week.

That sums up what's been changing around here! Have a great Thursday and I will be back again soon with some artwork for another challenge - this time at Die Cuts R Us!

Mary....I am so jealous that you get to go to CHA next week and even more jealous that you get the exclusive stamp set!! I could have gone with a friend and her husband but next week we will be in Branson with our whole family (both sides). Have a great time!
