Exciting news and the second instalment of "Springtime"

Well, as the title of this blog entry implies, I have exciting news for you today! I received an email yesterday from the editor at Scrap N' Art eZine which is a new digital publication on scrapbooking and paper crafting. They would like to feature me in their second issue (July/August) as an up and coming designer in digital scrapbooking!! How exciting is that? There will be an article written about me and my work with a showcase of projects made using my freebies! I am very, very excited to be involved with this new eZine and will be making a freebie kit that will be available exclusively to readers of Scrap N' Art. The first issue is available on April 15th, but you need to sign up in order to receive it (it is free!). Go here and do that so that you don't miss any issues! The first issue is more focused on paper scrapbooking, but in the second issue there will be a focus on digital scrapbooking too. I do paper scrapbooking as well as digital, so it's still very relevant to me, and I'm sure the same will apply to many of you. At the moment you can download a preview of the first few pages of the eZine - so be sure to check that out - it looks GREAT! Each subscriber will be entered into a draw to win hundreds of dollars of products from various scrapbooking manufacturers, so an added incentive I think ;o)

Well, back to today's freebie and I have the plain papers that you saw in yesterday's preview which you can download here. The elements are coming along nicely and the first set will be ready for you tomorrow. See you then! See below for a layout I've done today.

Also, a quick layout I did of a photo of myself, Tina and Jenny at Tina's wedding on Saturday. The items aren't from a kit, I just sampled the colours and made a few items for the page. I think the colours really make the photo pop! Hope you like it!
