{BIG} news and {BIG} Giveaway!!!

I have the most amazing news and although I've known for a couple weeks, I'm still a little shocked and speechless. I made the My Little Shoebox 2011 DT!! - Check it out here!! So this means that I get to play with their fun, adorable, and whimsical pp nonstop for the next year....and I can't think of anything more fun than that :) Exactly two weeks ago I got a call from the wonderful ladies at MLS and it was so amazing to get to speak to them in person. I actually cried a little, and I'm so not a crier...LOL It was ana amazing phone call and I'm really looking forward to being a part of such a talented team.

Sometimes this scrapbooking business can be full of ups and downs and I know I couldn't have made it this far without all the support from you guys - all my friends who were there for me, who take the time to visit my blog, who inspire me with their own works. For this reason, I thought it was time to do a giveaway...and this will be a BIG one, just to show how thankful I am to have all of you in my life.






Contents:
- All 6 pp sheets from the brand new Pink Paislee Hometown Summer line!
- 3 Pink Paislee Hometown Summer borders
