Wow. The Best Kept Secret

I am truely at a loss for words. I am speechless! But most of all I am honored!!! I was voted the very FIRST "Best Kept Secret" over at If it's Groovy! Deb, blog owner, asked if I would accept the nomination and if so give a challenge to the ladies of the DT. I challenged them to do a boy layout using flowers and bling! The inspiration for this challenge came from everyone always commenting on how I add flowers and bling to my boy pages but yet keep it masculine. They accepted the challenge, some hesitant, some jumping right in but they ALL did a fantastic job!!!! Hop on over to If it's groovy to check out their layouts!!! But there is another challenge that I DID NOT know about! Those sneaky ladies decided to use a layout of mine to scraplift! I had NO IDEA!! This was such an honor to me!!!! I am thrilled that they did this. Of course, I wanted to do a layout based on my challenge as well and here is what I did. This is a layout of my oldest nephew being baptized. I bought a frame for him so that he could hang it in his room if he wanted to. I used the sketch "Lavender Escape" by the talented Beggahuna. I handmade this flowers myself. I LOVED doing this. It was so much fun. I'll be adding a tutorial for some things (including these flowers) on here very soon so be on the lookout for them. Wow. I just can't stop smiling! This was such a surprise and honor to me. Thank you so much for the Design Team members and to Groovy Deb for giving me this title this month, for giving me the honor of scraplifting me and for participating in my challenge!! As always, I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to come sit with me for a while. Until next time, keep scrappin'!!!
