So honored and excited! and a little Blog Candy baby, yeah!

I am SO excited to share! Last week I submitted a couple of projects( see here, here, and here) to the very talented Lauren Meader for consideration for her design team call. Seven new DT members were listed this morning....and I am SO honored to be one of them!!! I can't wait to help share inspiration through Lauren's challenges every week!

To visit the My Time to Create design team blogs, click on the links below:
I am SO excited to be working with them!
OK, so I had better go finish up my color challenge project for my first official My Time to Create Design Team contribution....boy does THAT feel good to say :)

You can participate in the challenge by adding your creation to the Mr Linky on Lauren's blog here.

And last but not least, to celebrate this very exciting day, I have some blog candy to offer up. Lauren is the creator of the super cute and fun My Timeless Templates for Papertrey Ink. These are the templates I used to create the projects I linked above and they are so fun to work with. If you haven't tried them, I think you should so I am giving away one $5 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink which is the amount you would need to purchase a template download. To be entered in the drawing, please click and add yourself to my Followers list and/or Subscribe To list on the right side bar AND leave a comment on today's post. I will be randomly drawing one name from the comments on this post this weekend after my post for the My Time to Color Challenge! DT member Tracey is also giving away blog candy today...great idea Tracey!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll visit often and find inspiration here!! :)
