The Secret's Out :-)

Yes, another secret. There's been that much talk of secrets over at BB that it's been a little more Blue Bizarre than Blue Bazaar lately!

I can now reveal the one I was alluding to: I'm the newest member of the Scenic Route design team! I'm still pinching myself, and so grateful for this opportunity. I was approached by Layle and Sarah at the Brissy Convention and asked if I would like to join the team. They were both so lovely, and I couldn't believe that they were asking me!
I need to stop using exclamation points!

I've been having lots of fun creating with the beautiful SR products, but I can only show you one at this stage. This is a layout I made for my friend Kate to give to her mother. The photo is of Kate's grandmother who has since passed away, and she is holding her youngest grandchild.



I think I need to curb this flower and leaf obsession a little. I was thinking just recently, how before I became obsessed..er...interested in scrapping I actually had some flowers in my garden - now they are all on my pages!
