More EXCITING stuff going on!! :)

Hi everyone :)

Wow!! More exciting stuff going on around here!! :)

First -- I was invited to be a participating artist at the Sugar Art and Fashion Show!!!! So excited about this!!! :)

Check out the link ... I am listed under artists and vendors -- "DandyBoDandy" -- that's me!!! :)



 I will be selling my canvasses and some of my altered art!! Very exciting!! :)

Here are some canvasses I made for the show :)








I not only made this one for the show ... I also am entering this in Anupama's banner challenge over at Yvonne's blog!! :)

After I finished the initial painting on my canvasses -- I used Studio Calico's banner masks to create banners and then I used MME mini banners on here too :)













 









And here is a layout I made for the latest color challenge at Color Me Scrappy Challenge :)

Here is their color scheme :)


And their twist for their challenge was to use tags and/or stitching -- I did both :)

 And here is my layout -- I used some Echo Park, Crate Paper and The Twinery :)









And one more bit of EXCITING NEWS!! I have been asked to be the Media/Marketing Coordinator for Berry71Bleu!!!! :)




*phew* ... now I'm tired! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
