March Challenge at Raspberry Road

As promised, I'm back with details of the next Raspberry Girls Challenge! Since March is the month we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, it only makes sense that the name of our next challenge is Lucky Me! Complete challenge rules are available on the Raspberry Girls Blog right now! So, head on over, check 'em out and download the exclusive freebie challenge kit - preview below:

And if the freebie kit weren't enough, I've also whipped up this quick little collection of 4x6 Brag Book pages using Susan's Legacy and Long Ago Ledgers collection. Every person who participates in the challenge will receive this brag book collection as my free thank you gift!

And finally, the challenge winner will receive THEIR CHOICE of any kit from Susan's store. WOW!!

Whew.... what a great challenge, huh? Well, come on and join us! Get on over to the Raspberry Girls' blog, get downloading and GOOD LUCK!! Y Tracy

Long Overdue News

This is part of the problem inherent in being a "bad blogger!" I thought I had posted about this a while ago, but realized that in fact, I never did! So, today I want to let my readers know about another CT I have been accepted to - I'm now one of "Boo's Blossoms" for BooLand Designs. Boo has assembled a pretty large Creative Team and every single one of these ladies is really talented. I've been on the team for a couple months, now and I am consistently amazed at the work they do. Here is a layout Boo did to show off all our pretty mugs! And I think she must've done me a favor and played with the aspect ratio on my picture or something because my face is looking pretty thin in that picture.... lol :)

And Boo's kits! Well, let's not neglect to talk about those! They are really awesome. I've already worked with about half a dozen of them, or so, and will be sharing them here over the next few days. Here is my latest layout, titled "Valentine Surprise."

The layout is made with one of Boo's Birthstone Collection kits called Garnet and is available for purchase here: papers, elements, alpha. I also need to credit the awesome Flergs for her gemstone swirls and Donna Downey for the sketch I used to layout the whole design! :) Fonts are Times New Roman (journaling) and DDScript ("Surprise").

Hosting March challenge for Raspberry Road

As always, I've been away too long.... I have been SO CRAZY busy lately.... my partners and I have opened up a new forum for scrapbookers here in the Poconos (more on that in a separate post), plus we've been actively plugging away at the work we need to do for the next fun turn our business will take. But, as I said, I will be telling you more about all of that soon!

Today I wanted to give you a heads up about the challenge I am hosting for the Raspberry Girls which starts on March 1st! We're going to be having a "Lucky Me" challenge and Susan has designed a gorgeous new kit especially for the challenge. You'll be able to download it for FREE from the Raspberry Girls blog starting on March 1st. Start thinking about what makes you "lucky" and check out this sneak peak at the new kit:

Gorgeous, as always! And, if the free challenge kit weren't enough, I have a special gift in store for each participant in the challenge, too! All us Raspberry Girls have been working with and showcasing the Long Ago Ledgers collection this week and my special gift is no exception! I've put together a set of brag book pages that use the Long Ago Ledgers collection along with the Legacy Collection. If you own one of these collections, you simply must own BOTH! Susan's Long Ago Ledgers collection coordinates with so many of her kits so well, you really should check it out.

There will be a total of 10 brag book pages given as a gift to each of our March challenge participants, so mark your calendar and get set to check back on the CT blog on March 1st for the challenge guidelines and the download link for Susan's exclusive March challenge kit. And, just to whet your appetite, here is a sneak peak at the first page of the brag book participation gift:

I'm very excited about the chance to host a Raspberry Girls challenge and I hope you'll join us on March 1st! Y Tracy
