Lots of changes in the past few years...new relationship status, new career, new lease on life...
But one thing that hasn't changed is my love of creating...I still have all my scrapbook tools and supplies and one day will venture into that fabulous world but at this point and time I'm really into buying, finding and acquiring wood furniture to turn it into something beautiful and unique...take a peek over at my new blog for a couple sneak peeks and to see if there's anything that you might want to purchase. If you have something you'd like to have me "make new" for you, please inquire about prices and time lines for your loved piece of furniture!!
Check back often, I hope to be uploading weekly projects, tips and items for sale...in between my three, yes, I said three, jobs...I told you my life had changed...only for the better!!! :)
'Til the next time...please check out my newest passion at Refreshed Renewed Recreated!!

So here's how we are going to do it...
The "YMBD Bucks Bucket"
Help us fill this Bucket with YMBD Bucks!
- For every challenge completed during the online crop and uploaded to the YMBD Gives Back Crop Gallery, 100 YMBD Bucks will go into the bucket!
- As of this morning Cat has cleared her own YMBD Bucks Balance to 0. She will be accepting donations of your own YMBD Bucks balances (as much or as little as you would like to donate). To donate, just click the donate link in her profile to the left! All donations of your bucks will go into the Bucket, as well as any Bucks she earns during the crop by posting, commenting and uploading! So keep an eye on her balance and watch it grow!
Take advantage of our Crop Sale! Use coupon code: GIVEBACK between now and May 5th and get 10% off your entire order (excluding May Special, Gift Certificates & Clearance). Of that 10% savings, half will go into the Bucket!
Challenge Submissions: All challenge/crop submissions must be uploaded to the YMBD Gives Back online crop gallery, by Midnight EST May 5th.
IMPORTANT: You may complete as many challenges as you wish, and you may complete all challenges more than once, but please only upload ONE photo of each submission to the crop gallery (if you want to post additional photos of closeups, you can upload those to the regular Member Gallery).
All submissions must be new creations, created during the crop (no past work allowed). Your creations may be traditional scrapbooking, digital or hybrid. The gallery upload limit we normally have in effect is lifted during the crop and does not apply.
Prizes: What's a crop without prizes right? Prize winners will be drawn randomly from the crop gallery. The more challenges you complete and upload the more chances you have at winning (statistically speaking).
•First Prize: $20 YMBD Gift Certificate
•Second Prize: $15 YMBD Gift Certificate
•Third Prize: $10 YMBD Gift Certificate
•3 Runner-Up Prizes: each will receive a suprise assorted package of YMBD Goodness valued at a minimum of $5.
Remember: the more challenges you complete the more you help fill up our Bucket, and the closer we get to curing cancer! Hopefully this fuels everyone's mojo this weekend! So PLEASE, scrap lots!

How about the last 2 sketchs of the awesome set we had to work with in March from So Sketchy...okay, that sounds like a great idea!!!!! :)
Here's the 2nd one that I worked on in March...I went WAY back in my stash for this one and pulled out some fun KI pp!!! A treasure found as it worked perfectly with the photo I took of a rose from the bouquet my hubby got me for my 40th birthday!!!! Since it was my birthday, the Printable Stamps from The Cutting Cafe that was our sponsor this month came in very handy!!! I used a small one and a large one that I punched out after printing with my big 3" scallop punch...love the look!!! Thanks for the opportunity to work with your wonderful printables...I enjoyed it throughly!!!
