Scrap Outside the Box is celebrating it's 5th Anniversary! There is a fun challenge by Wilma to "Pimp that Cupcake". She provides a template for the cupcake and you pimp it out!! There is also a Speed Scrap that went on tonight. You can upload your layout until midnight Sunday! Larisa of Garden Girl Designs hosted the crop and she's giving away an AWESOME gift if you participate. You can pick up her Teenie Weenie Halloweenie kit for FREE!!!! How cool is that? Look back in my blog a post or two and you can see a preview of that cute kit!

Speed Scrap (scroll down the thread until you find the instructions)

Here is a sweet (yes, pun intended!! LOL) layout that my almost 9 year old made tonight in honor of Scrap Outside the Box's 5th Birthday/Anniversary! She is so methodical about placement and making sure everything matches. It was pretty fun to watch her make this.

Let's see, what freebie can I give away tonight? Oh how about Grandma's Quilt. It's sort of spring-ish but it's snuggly to me! The colors are from a quilt that my Grandma made and I tried to make the papers look as washed and used as that quilt was! Here is the first part, keep an eye open for the rest of the kit:

Never say...(and a freebie)

...uneventful. I think I jinxed myself. LOL So, last post I said the last few weeks had been uneventful, and they had been! Now, I have pink eye, in BOTH eyes. It's miserable. I haven't had this since I was a kid! It totally stinks! I'm making sure to keep my daughter and hubby away from my hands and face LOL.

I was also invited to join my absolute favorite digi scrapping's anniversary blog train!! It's happening this coming week and the weekend! So, keep an eye on my blog if you want and you can pick up my piece to the blog train and get all the other blog links!

The most amazing thing happened to me today!! I was invited to join the "designer's" side of a store. I get to hang out there until I get up enough nerve to try selling my designs! I'm so excited!!!! It's so hard to come up with the words for how I'm feeling. Let me just get a little of this off my chest. I'm very excited and nervous at the same time. I'm scared that I'll put time into this and no one will like my designs. I'm scared that I just don't have enough creativity to pull designing off. But even with all that, I still want to do it; I'll never know until I really try, right?

On to the next subject. One of the designers I CT for is having a CT call. This is a team that is an absolute blast to work on! If you're interested here is the ad:

Speaking of Garden Girl Designs, she has a fun new kit that previewed this past week. It's called Teenie Weenie Halloweenie. It has a ton of fun word art, doodle sketches and cute elements:

Here are a couple of layouts that I made with this fun kit:

I've been sitting here the last 10 minutes trying to figure out what freebie to give out. LOL. I think what I'll do tonight is give you a couple of Quick Pages that match the parts of the kit I gave away the last few weeks. Click the previews to get to the download links:
