Post #800 and an announcement

I totally had something planned at post 700....and I missed it.  Then post 750.  Missed that one too.

So I've been keeping a close eye on my blog post counter so that when I hit post #800 I could go a giveaway.

I have lots to share today.  ;)

First, I made my first Design Team.  I've never really tried for anything (yet) - its on the list for {2012}.  But when Shelley announced a call for her Flair DT, I jumped all over it.

I was introduced to Shelleys work through Maya Road and her incredible album a couple of years ago.  (I'm trying to find that post but my labels aren't working.....grrr....)

Anyway, when she announced her Etsy shop a couple of months ago, I bought a bunch of her flair.  I don't know what it is about this little piece of metal but I {heart} them.  Whenever I work on a card or layout, I pull my big bin of flair down and rifle through it to see if there is a piece I can use.

When I work on Project Life, I do the same thing.

She puts up new designs almost every week.  I make my wishlist and when the paycheck rolls in, I buy the sets I like.  I love having them sitting on my desk ready to go.

And then she emailed me last week telling me I had made the cut!  I'm officially a DT'er for the flair!


You can read about the other girls on Shelley's blog.

To see my name up there with people like Megan Klauer and Diane Payne!  I'm so excited!  

Anyway, to celebrate, leave a comment and I will give away ONE pack of Shelley's flair.  Comments will remain open until Tuesday night (5/22).

Rules:  Leave a comment on THIS blog post for a chance to win.  I will use to pick one winner.  Winner will get their choice of one Flair set from Shelley's shop.

How's that for a  #800 celebration?

Curious how I used the flair?  You can see examples here, here, here and here.  Look for more ideas soon!

I'm off to roll around in my pile of flair!  Happy Friday!

  4. Congratulations on making the DT! I was on a DT a few years ago and I really enjoyed it. (P.S. If you pick my name, please go ahead and choose someone else. I'm not a lumpy scrapper so I'd rather the flair go to someone who would really enjoy it.)
