EEGADS!! It's been a while!

See this is what happens...I get distracted. I have, online ADHD. I bounce from one thing to the next quicker than I can function really. It's so sad hahaha. I blame it on the media. Well, I can't really do that but EVERYONE blames the media for everything so why not me to?

I just started crafting again, after my hiatus. And I got back into my DT position at The Outlawz. I was in desperate need of a cyber break. This happens often. I do however truly wish I was a more dedicated blogger. SO in an effort to BE that blogger, I am setting up every post for May-June to post on Sunday:) It will feature the latest CAS challenge at TOL and my sample. So even if I am not really here, I am here. And if I go on a crafty vaca....I will at least APPEAR to be crafting! HAHAHAHA.

"See" you on Sunday's!!

Mucho loviessssss xoxo

Published for the first time!

So I received in the mail 2 weeks ago the Holiday Cards and More Paper Crafts magazine and man was it AWESOME to see my own card published among the other outstanding and completely STUNNING creations they chose for this publication! It was such a surprise to have my card chosen in the first place! Yes, I had to have some kind of confidence in what I was creating to be able to submit, but never did I truly think it would happen!

It is an honor, and extremely exciting to share the card today!

If I had to pick one from the probably 10 I submitted, this would have been the one I chose as well! It was the most fun to create and when it was completed I was so proud of myself for creating it! I'm not usually one for loving or even liking something I make, but this once, I did!

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the editors, designers and all of the AWESOME people who work at Paper Crafts magazine for bringing our crafty world such fantastic inspiration with each and every issue!

You can use the link above to go directly to the PC website. It is a MUST BOOKMARK spot!! And if you haven't checked out the Holiday Cards and More Vol 6, get going because it's absolutely amazing!

Hugs, loves and sparkles <3
