I made it...

to Round 3 of the Scrapping With the Stars contest over at Coordinates Collections! I'm pretty excited about that! It's down to just 6 people left, and only 3 will be going on to the final round. If I get chosen to move on, I'll win a prize, so i'm pretty stoked about it! BUT the stars who I have to be 'inspired' by are Jen Dubbs (who is a CC Design Team member) and Tim Holtz. I am SOOOOOO not a Tim Holtz kind of scrapper. EEEK!!! What to do, what to do! Please cross your fingers that the scrap gods send some mojo my way on Saturday while I work on these layouts! lol

So, I worked my first day in the scrapbook store yesterday! It was a blast! Well, as much of a blast as working can be, anyways! I loved helping people find products and giving advice and tips. SO much fun :)

Okay, it is WAY past my bedtime, but i wanted to just blog quick and share these next couple 365 photos with you! Plus my two layouts from the last round of Scrapping with the Stars.

This was my Elsie Flannigan inspired layout for Round 2 of Scrapping With the Stars!

This was inspired by one of the DT members at CC. I LOVE how this turned out!
Photo credit goes to my fabulous sister :)

Wanted to document my favourite towel. It's cheap and crappy and from Walmart.. but it soaks up the water AMAZINGLY well. Love it :)

Who wouldn't love working in a store with so much pretty stuff??

Finally got my ATC's from my first swap back! They look so pretty in
the box I decorated for them :)

Happy Friday!!!
<3 Gillian

Love the winter escape page, just fabulous. I'm about to try my hand a scraping for the first time with my 'little sister'. She want's to scrap all of our activities together before I have to move. Should be fun!
