So I yesterday submitted via email a card I made to the Simon Says Stamp Blog in hopes to win a $50 voucher to their online store (which is absolutely AWESOME I must add!!). I received an email response back saying they received my submission and suggested I start a blog. So here I am. I'm not sure what I want to say just yet but I hope to share some stories and some paper crafts that I am addicted to creating. I started scrapbooking since I got married but haven't really turned up the heat on this hobby until my first daughter was born in 2004. I have always been a shutter bug and kept photo albums rather up to date since I was in highschool (where I was helping with the yearbook and in university where I was yearbook editor for my residence). Preserving memories has always been a passion of mine but scrapbooking as I create it today is way different. It's about the art of the layout almost as much as the memory itself. It's my key to immortality!
Anyway...back to my Simon Says Stamp submission. I was quite surprised to see my card (and my name!) posted on their blog..in big bold letters...for all to see. Check it out at http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/04/elizabeth-rossi-email-entry-for.html. I was totally taken aback. Wow! At this point the $50 voucher is secondary to seeing my creation featured on their blog...although I would absolutely LOVE the voucher!!! Here's keeping my fingers crossed.
Here's another picture of the card featured:
