I'm on the MOSH POSH design team!!!! Holy cow! Yay!!!

I've been waiting to share the news because... well, it didn't seem real to me. haha. It was a shock at first because I've never tried out for a Design Team before but when I saw the call on the website I thought: "eh, why not." So I did and wouldn't you know? I made it!

I couldn't ask for a better bunch of ladies to work with, or a better kit. The design team is super talented which makes me tremble with fear. All of a sudden I am feeling nervous about scrapbooking which is totally lame of me! But it's like the first day of school. I am scared & excited in a really good way. Gets the blood pumping, you know? I think being on the team will stretch my creativity and challenge me in new ways. And I hope I will do Kristen and her kit club proud!

I have a few things I've been working on to share. Some digital, some pulpy... AKA paper product. But first, some thought on digi VS non-digi: It's funny, but digital scrapbooking has made paper scrapbooking easier in some ways. And in other ways, way harder. When I'm digi scrapping I can move things around a billion times if I want to with no worries of adhesive or having to make a final choice about placement. I can stop working at any time and when I come back everything is in its place. That's nice! But with paper scrapping I'm finding a whole new bravery when it comes to layering and layout that I never had before I was a digi scrapper. I'm also more likely to get in there with the scissors and use stuff up. I know I will never be without scrapbooking supplies at my disposal because I have a computer hard drive full of them. ;)

Designs: Melon Madness alpha, Melon Madness transparency; Designer Digitals: Kellie Mize Ad Challenge freebie (blue and striped papers); Natali Design: blog freebie stitches; Digichick: mira spring garden add-on frame; fonts: CK Becky & another typewriter.

Anyways, on to the sharing. I made this LO above as a RAK for my friend Bonnie. I'm hoping once she gets it printed out she will decide to try her hand at digital scrapbooking (*wink, nudge*). Also, she's super busy with her 3 kids and I wanted to do some pages for her since she has even less time to scrap then I do! This is one of three I plan to do for her. She still has to send me the other pictures (hurry, send them, chica!).

Credits: BAM designs (that's me): pink grid paper; Memory Makers: wild sorbet flower rubons & blue paper & scalloped frame & enjoy word art (michelle coleman), frosted blue bow (michelle coleman), art nation blossom acrylic flower (emily powers); Little Dreamer Designs: hullabaloo scalloped edge (heidi larsen), loveable chipped paint frame *recolored* (michelle coleman); Jackie Eckles: textured bracket brushes freebie.

This page above was created for my mom for mother's day. I bought her an album and started filling it with pages for her. I love digital because when I make a page for her I can print two of them (one for me!) and vice versa. I love the pink & blue in this one. I hardly ever get to use pink because I have a son but the other day I was thinking: "why the heck not?" so I did. And, you know what? I don't feel like it's all of a sudden a girly page because of the pink. Power to pink! ... and stuff.

Ok... I've gotta go now. I'm meeting a friend in 30 minutes, but I have more LO's to share. So, I'll post them tomorrow OK? :) Until then!
