Jillibean Soup April Challenge

You know what I bought last week??? A paper rack! and I'm so happy with it! I started organizing my paper straight away and surprise, surprise ... I found lots of untouched packages of paper I completely forgot I had!

One of those packages contained the "Chilled Strawberry Soup" line from Jillibean. I decided to enter their April challenge I had just seen on their blog. The challenge this month is to use Jillibean buttons, including the die-cut and sticker buttons that are included in the "Chilled Strawberry Soup"-line I had.

This is what I made:

A page about my daughter reading her latest best book.

Here are a few close-ups. First this one where you can see where and how I used the buttons:

And I used the buttons on the journaling card as well: 

The journaling is hidden under the photo:

HERE's the link to Jillibean's blogpost about the challenge. In case you want to play too, you have until April 30th.

And then some other happy, scrappy news: next month I'll be guest designing at "Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge". I was so happy & honored when Anne Pennington asked me! If you haven't seen this blog yet, you sure should visit it. It's a great place to be!

And last but not least .... I got a little present in the mail today from Practical Publishing International, thanking me for being in UK's Scrapbook Magazine number 63! BUT I didn't know I was going to be published in it! How's that for a surprise? Cool huh? Of course I was the one who sent in a few of my layouts for consideration, but I didn't know one of them was chosen! I think I'm gonna ask Jules if she has the magazine and if she can send me a scan. To be continued, LOL!

That's it for now. Hope you have a great weekend, with much better weather than we have (rain, rain, lots of rain)! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Thats a happy scrappy post. Congrats on your GD spot and in being published - what a surprise for you. Had to LOL over finding new papers in your reorganising. :)

  5. Wat handig, zo'n rek! Het is dat ik geen ruimte heb op mijn kamer voor zo'n opbergsysteem, maar anders was het een handige oplossing voor mijn uitpuilende bakken met papier geweest;)

    Je layout is trouwens supergaaf! Ik vind het erg leuk zoals je de kraft heb gemixt met vrolijke kleurtjes. En wat een gaaf nieuws, gefeliciteerd met je GDT spot:)
