Scrapbook USA Expo Time

Guess what is this weekend?  It's the Scrapbook USA Expo in Sandy, Utah.  One of my favorite events of the year!  If you're coming to the Expo, be sure to come say hello!  I'll be working in the VIP Lounge Area both mornings as the hostess.  It's the best job (and the most fun) of the Expo!  Hope to see you there!

Click here for more details about the Scrapbook USA Expo.

Guess what else is just around the corner?  My next favorite time of the year... Teacher Appreciation Doors!  Look for them in May.  I've already signed up for 3 doors.  So excited!

Seeing Colors (pastels that is) Challenge!

Okay, I totally cheated for the new Doodle Dragon Studios Seeing Colors (pastels that is) challenge!  Nothing says pastel more than Easter candy, which is a true weakness of mine!  Once the bag is open just know that it will be empty soon.  I've eaten enough Easter candy already, so I opted in posting this cute Easter treat I made in 2011.  Here's what I said...

There's just something about Easter M&M's that makes me want to buy bag after bag. The colors are so playful, light and happy. Think about it...brown colored M&M's don't make you smile like Easter colors do.

I found this fun container at IKEA (one of my favorite stores, except when I get lost and can't find out how do get down stairs). I printed the bunny on regular cardstock and the "Happy Easter" on a transparency paper. I glued the bunny on the transparency. Then put the paper in from back side so the bunny is sandwiched in between the original top and the transparency.

Now it's your turn to think pastels!  Link your project over on Dustin Pike's Doodle Dragon Studio's blog by Sunday, March 17!
