*my GIVEAWAY is announced today...and the funniest t-shirt EVER!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First I want to thank everyone for taking a moment and seeing my latest creation over on the Blue Moon DT blog today...I truly appreciate it when we do that for each other! :):):) When I see someone that has posted something on another blog that they 'work' for, or if they have a piece of theirs showcased on another blog...I do my best to go over and acknowledge....I know it means a lot to me when someone does that to me...so I always do my best to support others! :):):):):):):):):):):) So, THANK U! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooooooo as I told U the other day...I am honored to be guest designing for "Scrap it Forward" for the next three months...I was lucky enough to meet Christine and Illyse while I was at CHA in January and they told me about their challenge blog...and I truly fell in love with the concept!!! :):):):):):):):) Like "Pay It Forward" ....they have challenges that focus on community, recycling, different focus on charities...etc....how AMAZING is that!?!?!?!?!? Soooooooooooo with EARTH DAY right around the corner...this time the challenge is to use something that U normally would throw away, upcycling if U will! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Soooooooooooo here is what I created..... if U have followed me for awhile...U will know that I am IN LOVE with making WALL HANGINGS!!!! In fact...I have made sooooooooooo many, that when I started making this for Scrap It Forward...I decided that I would take that "pay it forward" concept to heart...and would GIVE this WALL HANGING I made as a GIVEAWAY on my blog!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
 






I used a bamboo placemat as the backing, Prima flowers, paint and Cosmo Cricket alphas! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooooo HOW CAN U WIN THIS?????!!!!!!???????? Just tell me in YOUR COMMENT that U want to be entered to win it (and I promise...I will NOT get offended if U don't want it...really...I won't!! LOL!!!) That's it!!! Just tell me...."WOW!! Julie!! That is ROCKIN'!!! Enter me to win that!!!" lol...KIDDING...U don't have to say EXACTLY those things!!! LOL!! :):):):):):):):) Scrap it Forwards challenge is going on until April 30th...sooooooooooooo I will draw my WINNER on May1st!!!! :):):):):):):) Spread the word about this if U want....but its not required....its ok to be selfish and want it all to yourself!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) And international girls can PLAY ALONG TOO! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And me and Brookie got happy mail today from Deana's daughter Bryn today....soooooo I will post photos of those goodies soon!! Thanks BRYN! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And now for a piece of trivia for us scrappers!!! How is that I can NOT bring myself to spend $22.00 on this shirt.....especially after what it says is soooooooooooooooo true!!??!!??!! LOL LOL LOL!! Yes, I want this shirt! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) (if U can't read it...click on the image to make it bigger!) :) ...ok I just tested my 'make the image bigger to read it' theory...and for me being as blind as I am...I couldn't read it...lol...... so here U go....it is the definition of "Scrapbooking"......"The Art of spending $50.00 to showcase a $1.50 photo"!!!!! LOL LOL LOL LOL!!! I can NOT stop laughing over this! :):):):):):):):):):):):)
hehehehehehehehehe! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  34. Oh, I sooo need that shirt! I TRY not to think about how much each and every one of my layouts actually costs when you factor in every element on them...esp. when you end up using just one sticker or embellie out of a pack on it and then never use that pack again. Scary!!!! Awesome wallhanging. i'm going to have to give Scrap It Forward a drive-by.
