I am so excited to be part of Red Carpet Studios Design Team!  This has been such a positive experience from the get go!  I've met so many talented paper artists who have created just amazing projects!  I'm so proud to be a part of this team!

To kick off our blog, Red Carpet Studio designers made projects with a "Premiere" theme.  When I applied for the design team, I talked about my love of all things Twilight.  And I can not even explain how excited I am for midnight on November 16, 2012 when Breaking Dawn Part 2 premieres.  (Even though I'm highly disappointed in Kristen Stewart's antics and hope I can look at Bella the same way......but this is a scrapbooking blog, not a gossip blog....)  Anyway, I thought about how much fun it would be to have a Twilight themed premiere party for all my fellow Twi-hards.  So my creative juices started to flow.......

So, for my first Red Carpet Studio project, I made an assortment of goodies for a Twilight premiere party; specifically an ode to Edward Cullen, my favorite immortal....My goodies include an invitation to my party, a votive filled with twilight inspired objects (apples, roses, crystal pebbles), a paper vase covered in twilight inspired papers from Die Cuts with a View, and a "swag bag" for all my friends attending the party.  Once I got started, I could not stop!  I kept thinking of Twilight goodies I could make like maybe altering a band-aid box for any freak paper cuts that could provoke Jasper.....decorating a "Sparkle" paper towel package, or perhaps spicing up the outside of the "Eclipse" gum wrapper....I eventually had to shut my brain down.

If you have any questions about how I did something, please feel free to send me a message.  And if you haven't already done so, follow Red Carpet Studios blog.  We have some great movie related themes coming up with prizes for award winning layouts!

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind....It's amazing how fast the last few weeks of summer fly by before the start of the school year.....The good news, I'm on a design team called Red Carpet Design Studio!  I am so excited!  It's a challenge blog where participants use movies as inspiration.  I can not wait to get started!  I am so happy to be back on a design team.  I love talking/working with people who share my love of all things paper!

So this is one of my latest pages I did for Child's Play prior to finding out about Red Carpet Studio Design Team.  The challenge asked for the designer to make a page with a beach ball theme.  I have a pool in my backyard, and  I have zero pictures of my girls with a beach ball......So I went with the circle/ball idea.  (As you can see; having a ball!)  This is my daughter on her 4th birthday; she was dancing with her friends, and I caught an action shot of her cool moves.

If you are following me, go on over to Red Carpet Studios.  For the premiere weekend, a Cuttlebug die cut machine will be given away to a lucky follower.  It's going to be a great blog; lots of fun and inspiration!
