We have a winner!

We have a winner!  OK.... without further ado... the winner of my anniversary blog give-away is Betty Anne as chosen by the random number generator.  Congratulations Betty Anne your prize will be in the mail today!  I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks to everyone who left me comments and became followers of my blog.
This past weekend I spent 4 days at our annual scrapbooking retreat at the Bloomin' Inn in Pincher Creek, Alberta with my "Besties".  We had the most amazing time, scrapbooking, talking, laughing and eating.  The facility is a beautiful country location with the most amazing scenery and home cooked meals.  We all made the most of our time there and created some memorable pages, cards and mini-albums.  I was fortunate to get a head-start on my Christmas cards..... the blizzard that started  on the first day put me in the Christmas mood, so I ran with it!  Here is just a sneak peek of a few things that I created.

 A couple of sneak peeks at two layouts that I created.... will feature them in an upcoming post.

My current design team position at Let's Scrap was up at the end of April so I decided to re-apply.... and I was chosen for another term.  This is the layout that I submitted for my application.  The photo is one taken last summer when my daughter was home for a visit.... Meagan and her best friend Lisa.  They have been best friends since birth when Lisa's Mom and I became best friends while pregnant.  Just love how they have kept in touch across the miles and always have a special place in each other's hearts for one another.

I used Little Yellow Bicycle's Elizabeth Park line.  I cut out the butterflies and pop-dotted them up in pairs along a piece of string. 
Til next time... Enjoy!
