friday . . .


Yes, I am posting twice in one day - CRAZY!!! :) Thanks so much for all the congrats and well wishes on my NEWS :) I am SO excited!!!!!

I thought some of you may be looking for a little sketchy inspiration to start your weekend off :) A little over a week ago, a long-time blog reader and absolute sweetheart emailed me she was opening an online store, My Scraps and More and was curious if I might be able to create a sketch for her to kick off her April challenges in the forum. Of course I was happy to do so!!! Feel free to head over to the forum HERE and check out the sketch :) I am not gonna lie - I did a bit of shopping myself - new Bella Blvd & Echo Park were calling my name!!! My order was processed immediately and shipped out right away - love it!!!! And to top it off - there is a 20% off coupon code right now - AWESOME!! The owner, Tammi, wanted to share a bit about her store with my readers . . .

My name is Tammi Bennett and I have been a long time scrapper and paper hoarder! My dream has always been to own a scrapbook store and now it has become a reality!! I just opened an online store, My Scraps & More! My hope is to create a comfortable place where you can come to browse and buy the latest in scrapbook products offered at great prices with fast shipping, participate on the message forum with others who share in this great (and obsessive) hobby, and to inspire and to be inspired by sharing your work in the gallery!! I invite you to come over and make yourself at home at Please use coupon code MS411 during checkout to receive 20% off of your first order as my way of saying "thank you" for giving me the chance to be your new favorite scrapbook site!! As part of my Grand Opening, Julie has created an exclusive sketch to kick off our challenges on the message forum! I am also giving away some My Mind's Eye "Stella & Rose" goodies to one lucky winner! To win, simply become a follower of our blog at, and leave a comment here. Julie will pick a winner by on April 5th! I can't wait to see what you create with the sketch!!
