Exciting News!

Hi everyone!  Today, I have some exciting news to share that I have been bursting to tell everyone -- I am now on the Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine Design Team!!  Woo Hoo!!  I just love me some twine so I was very excited to get this great news in a email a few weeks ago.  It's been killing me to keep it a secret--LOL!

Editing on Monday am:  I forgot that I am supposed to tell you a bit about myself--LOL!    I am a married, full-time working mom of 2 teenagers (it pains me to say that!).  My son is 15 and just got his learners permit and my daughter just turned 13.  We have one dog, Charlie (girl) who is just adorable which gets her out of trouble a lot :)  I started scrapbooking when my son was one and then started card making soon after when friends talked me into selling Stampin' Up!  Being a demonstrator did not last too long since I was not good at being pushy.  My blog began 2 1/2 years ago and I have been on the My Pink Stamper DT for about a 1 1/2 years.  I was also on the Fantabulous Cricut Team for a a few terms too.  I am beyond thrilled to be this amazing Trendy Twine Team!!  Lesley is just fabulous and I can't wait to get started!!

Here's a project that I sent in to try out.  I used the Spring Cottage Cartridge to make the basket and berries.

The details:
I had to get this Cricut Cartridge just because of the basket and berries--LOL!  And this project just needed twine to go on it too :)   I glued the Krazy for Kraft Twine around the basket and handles. The berries hold one or two pieces of candy and then you close it with the twine.  I used the white pen to do some faux stitching on the berry leaves.


Trendy Twine is a three-color twist that comes in traditional colors mixed with whit as well as custom colors  mixed with other colors--so much fun!  Make sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine so you can meet all the new designers.  You can also see all the colors available now, and there are more to come this year -- Yay!  Plus, if you leave a comment on all the blogs today, you can win a spool of Trendy Twine of your own choice!  Just be sure to leave one comment on all the blogs and the Trendy Twine Blog as well.  And if you want to try out some Trendy Twine, the Original Mini Pack is on sale :)

Have a fantastic day everyone!!
