Great News and Challenge #17

First up is the secret that I've been waiting to tell you that was finally revealed yesterday....
 
I have been invited to join the Marketing Team at Let's Capture Our Memories 

It is the first time I have received a 'yes' after applying, and let me tell you it felt great. I can't believe I get to work with Tanya and my scrappy crush Nicole for 3 whole months.  I am thrilled to be joining them, and hope you will all follow along with me as I do.  Here is my 'this is me' layout I created for the blog announcement.
Using Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection
You can see the announcement here.  First up on the agenda is a Birthday Bash, to celebrate LCOM's 3rd birthday.  You can find all the details on the Facebook Page here.  There will be challenges, games, and prizes up for grabs.  I can't believe that's 2 birthdays in 2 weeks for both the teams I am a part of.  Next week we'll be celebrating Eden's birthday around here also, so that will make it 3 birthdays in 3 weeks.  I am sorry to say, however, that hers won't have scrappy challenges, or prizes.

Also on the agenda for today is Challenge #17 over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  The challenge is to create a layout celebrating a group in our life.  The layout must included a photo of your group, and the the scrap twist, which is to use a cluster of embellishments on your layout.  Here's my layout.
Using My Scrapbook Nook Feb Kit featuring October Afternoon
This is a group I grew close with as we all served alongside one another in the Kids Ministry are of our church.  The photo was taken at Willow Creek Community Church in Bloomington, Illinois (just outside of Chicago).  We spent several days at this mega church, in training, and volunteering.  It was a great opportunity to serve and become even closer with one another.  You may click on the photo to read the journaling, if you're interested.  What kind of groups do you have in your life?  School?  Church? Scrappy? Running? Dance? Girls Night Out?  There are all sorts of people we find ourselves with at various seasons in our lives.  Even when it's maybe just one or two, that's a group, and you share just as much (if not, maybe even more) than if it were a very large group.  Hope you'll get the chance to join us this month.  You could win a series of classes by the very talented Donna Downey, or perhaps even find yourself in one of our future Guest Designer spots.  Hop on over here to get full details.
