Awards,The Pink Elephant Challenge and More...

Sorry everyone I took off all the images of my project because they will publish in E-zine March issue at Scrapbook News and Review.

I just love this easter card how it turned out. I entered this card for The Pink Elephant Challenge by Lori and Robin. This week is to use a ribbon and die cuts. I also sumbitted this card to SNR. I had so much fun with this card. I couldn't figure out how to weave the one that I want so I ended up with this one. I hand draw all the eggs and added stickles instead of coloring with markers or colored pencils.

Georgia Pacific- white cardstock

This Encourage and Inspire Award was given by my great friends Heather and Deb . They both super talented and creative. Thank you so much ladies :) I'll pass these awards later on...

Last but not the least, I submitted my 2 altered projects for publication at SNR and I was surprised when Jenna email me and she want to publish my projects. And I said yes, everyone are so excited and happy :) Yes, this is my very first time to sumbit my projects for publication. I never did this before.
