Make a Wish(List) Contest

The Make a Wish(List) Contest is inspired by Doris Castle's generosity, see 2 posts down for more on that. I'd like to respond to her generosity by making someone else's wish come true.

So, from now until May 31 at midnight eastern time, comment with your email and a link to your digiscrap Kaboodle wishlist or any wishlist you may have at any digiscrap store (please post all lists in one comment). On June 1, I will ask my DH to randomly pick a number (from 1 to however many responses I get). Then, I'll look at that person's wishlist(s) and pick something (or maybe more than one something) that I will purchase for that person. Designers are welcome to enter this contest too, btw. :) Please know that while the winner will be announced June 1, it may take a day or two for the item(s) to reach them.

I hope that this will inspire someone else to host a Make a Wish(List) Contest of their own, and so on...

Good luck, everyone.

Feeling Kinda Out of the Loop

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how it is I missed Carrie Stephens' wonderful style. I've seen (and even downloaded) some of her freebies over the years, but with the release of her Vivacious kit (currently on sale at Fishscraps), I am reawakened to her as a designer. In an industry where I often don't buy kits because they are so similar in color and theme to kits I already own, I actually added 3 or 4 kits as well as the entire Vivacious kit (kit and 2 add ons) to my Kaboodle. Her style is fresh and different, fun but not too girly.

If you haven't checked out her stuff in detail before, check her out at Fishscraps and Scrapbook Graphics because I really think that you'll like her.

Can I Say Thank You Enough?

I don't really think so. I just want to say thank you again to Doris Castle who noticed my Kaboodle wish list contained her Groupies sets and who very generously granted my wish. If you get the chance, if you have something in your own "to buy" list that's Doris's, I encourage you to visit her blog and her store.

More Sales

I knew I'd be doing more shopping and indeed, I have. Some Elemental Scraps designers have sales and coupons that run either though the middle of this month or the end of this month and their March mega it is seriously on sale. This kit is gorgeous!! So, of course I had to buy it. Well, off for now.

Wow! What a weekend

So Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day and the digi community was all abuzz. I literally spent all of Saturday in one chat room or another and let me tell you, they were fantastic!! I can't say that I spent much (though I am planning to spend some today and in the middle of the month). Chats at DST and the Sweet Shoppe probably were some of the best I have ever attended and of course, I enjoyed RAKScraps 8 pm chat. And even better (LOL) were the chat prizes and gifts. There was literally something for everyone!

I want to thank especially Ashley Bailey at Digital Divas Designs (, Grace Bennett at DST (www.digishoptalk,com), Melanie Colosimo at Elemental Scraps ( Ladies, you are the best and may I say that I absolutely love everything I bought. Oh, and Ashley, you are so right, once I took a good look at your Pepper Grass kit I fell in love.

I didn't get a lick of scrapping in during the weekend, but hey... there's plenty of time for that after the sales. And speaking of sales, I am very much looking forward to the upcoming Shabby Princess and ScrapArtist sales.
