Season of Change

Man, everything seems to be changing right now.  A lot in my life is changing.  Even in the scrapbooking world.  We are losing magazines, we are losing contests, we are losing stores and sites.  It's sad.  And the same week I got the best news ever (MLS design team) I also got more sad news.  ScrapLovers is closing the forum.  They were the first design team I tried for...and the first one I made.  Christina has been so awesome and generous and I am really going to miss the whole gang there.  But we are ending it all with a big Farewell Crop.  Would love for you to join us...especially if you have ever been a part of the ScrapLovers community.  


I also wanted to show you a couple layouts today.  Today is new release day for Kate Teague over at 2 peas.  She has two new kits for you: Happy Spring and Sunny Days.  Here are two quick layouts I made with those kits:



Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday!

cute layouts!!! and sorry to hear about Scraplovers. I think, sadly, that this is just a normal part of the cycle -- especially considering the giant boom that scrapbooking had about 3-4 years ago.

Beautiful layouts, so sorry about the store closing. It does seem like quite a bit is going away. I keep hoping things will begin to turn around soon.
