Lindsey's Exciting News!!

Hello Friends!
Today I have exciting news to share!!!
I am going to be October Afternoon's Guest Designer for September!!!!!!
Yippee!! October Afternoon is one of my favorite scrapbook companies! Their soft vintage style is so perfectly me!
Just look at this photo below from their new Modern Homemaker line!


When I was at CHA, I couldn't wait to get to their booth! And let me tell you, it was magical! Oh, how happy looking at paper can make me!  : )
I loved their displays, especially this big modern homemaker!


On our second day at the show, my boss wanted to show the wonderful people from October Afternoon one of my mini books and they asked me if I wanted to be a Guest Designer. I could hardly believe it! Most of the photos I took after that were blurry, because I was shaking so much with nervous excitement!
Being a Guest Designer means that I will make several projects using their lovely new paper and they will share them on their blog throughout the month of September and also a questionaire filled out by me on their blog

I am in love with the Modern Homemaker paper line! I knew when I saw the sneak peeks, that Modern Homemaker would be my favorite collection from the show!
I loved looking at these samples created by their design team.


Another great new release is by October Afternoon is Seaside. I'm not really the beach type, but this paper is too cute and so much fun to work with!

Campfire is another sweet new release from October Afternoon!


I love my October Afternoon paper so much that I do find myself wanting to hoard it and save it! Here is a photo I took of several of my favorite October Afternoon collections!


I am hard at work right now, creating projects to share for the month of September on the October Afternoon blog! Please stop by their blog and visit during the month of September to see my work on their blog!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, Lindsey

Hi Lindsey..CONGRATULATIONS!! How exciting to be chosen by them...I'll definitely check out their blog and come September I'll go there and see your work. No wonder you took shaky pictures after being asked to create for them LOL! Thanks for your kind words about our barn burning..it's hard to work in the garden as it's next to the rubble but we'll have it cleaned up soon I hope. At least we have the old corncrib which we'll restore one day. Have a wonderful weekend and have fun creating! Maura :)

Congratulations Lindsey! They were wise to chose you to be a guest designer and I'm sure more good things will come of this opportunity. You have a wonderful creative style and teaching talent (I can tell by your tutorials) so there may be even more exciting news in the future. I myself am an OA hoarder...sometimes I just can't cut into their paper...I just gaze at it! Can't wait to see what you come up with.
Bravo to you!
