2011 Coming Events and A Winner

WARNING ~ Long Post! I hope you will bear with me. :)

Hello Everyone! First I would just like to say WELCOME to all my new followers/friends. I am delighted that you chose to follow my blog and hope to inspire you as much as you inspire me.

Today I wanted to take the time to share some things that you will be seeing on my blog in the near future. I had wanted to share this with you a few days earlier but a family crisis prevented me from having the time to do that. Sometimes life can be hard but I am thankful that I have a Heavenly Father that knows what is best.

First I would like to announce that I have been selected to be a designer for Flaunt It Fridays Challenge Blog.
I am so honored to be chosen to be part of this talented group of ladies. The latest challenge is to use the martini glass from From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge and to do something other than a card. Here is what I put togeher:
I decided to make a tag to add to a gift. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the base. The sentiment is computer generated and of course I had to use my Gelly Roll Pens.  All cardstock is from Recollections. Added ribbon and a few I Rock gems and it was finished! Easy! :)

Coming this Friday, January 7th, Flaunt It Fridays will be hosting a Hello Kitty Blog Hop.
This will be my first blog hop as a designer for them and I am excited and hope that you will join us in the hop.

I will continue to design for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. So look for those posts on Mondays.

Coming March 14th - 18th I will be a Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog. It will be a week filled with Peachy Keen goodness. So mark your calendars. There will be a Peachy giveaway!

Next, I have created a Facebook page as a means to keep you all updated on Luv Scrapping Togethers latest posts. You  can LIKE  Luv Scrapping Together by hitting the Like button posted on the side of my blog.

I also wanted to share my  New Years Crafting Resolution! I have resolved to make something from every Cricut Cartridge I own. I will try to feature at least 2 cartridges a month here on my blog. I have come to the realization that I have not used many of my cartridges enough or not at all. That must be corrected!

The last item on my list is to announce the Rockin' New Years Blog Hop winner! Using Random.org the winner is...

#46 Erin from Spantastikreations

Congratulations, Erin, I will email you shortly for your address and get your I Rock out to you immediately.

Thank you all for your support and kind comments. I truly cherish each one! Here is to a wonderfully creative New Year!  Happy Crafting! ~ Saundra :)
