Busy, Busy

I've been busy, busy, busy. I've been making layouts, participating in speed scraps, doing challenges, and enjoying my Spring Break!

First, I have been offered positions on 3 digi design teams. I am CTing for Mommy Me Time Scrapper, IvoryKeys Digital Dreams, and Scraps by Andrea. You can click on their name to take you to their STS store.

I also had my DT terms at Sketches: Creatively Yours and Ch{all}enge Masters renewed. I am looking forward to working with them again. S:CY posts a new sketch every Friday. See the post below for the current sketch. CM posts new challenges on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sundays of each month. Stop by this Sunday for some new challenges including mine. You still have time to complete the March challenges. Check them out here.

Here are a couple of layouts I've recently completed.

My First Mini Kit - Freebie

I'm on a digi kick right now. I still love my paper product and don't want to give them up. I am just exploring another avenue. Stuff to Scrap has a challenge each month to create a mini kit using a color scheme. I thought I would give it a try. It was fun designing, but then learning how to get to a downloadable form wasn't. I finally have it ready. This is my first try at digi designing so any suggestions are appreciated. Here's the preview:
