I'm back! Had a busy March, I guess! I've done a lot of pages and also tried out for not just one, but two CTs and was accepted for both. I hope I can keep up with both, we will see, I can always just fulfill the contract and then not try out again, or renew. But, I'm enjoying both so far!

First up is Enchanted Studio Scraps. This is a new store, just opened up in January. It's bringing in a lot of designers from two stores I frequented last year - Snap and Scrap and Digital Candy.

So I submitted my gallery pics and was accepted to be an Enchanted Pixie. And anyone who knows me knows that I'm already a Fairy Godmother, so becoming a Pixie is not a stretch! LOL For this CT, I'm assigned to a designer and I need to do 4 layouts per month, two per kit. Plus I can get the site collab and do two layouts from that. And I can volunteer for more after I've done my first 4. We'll see how many I can do!

My first LO was for the site collab - Overboard. Lots of cool stuff in this kit and perfect for these pics of the Volcano Pool at the Polynesian. We pool-hopped there in April 2007 while staying at the Wilderness Lodge Villas.

My second LO was for my assigned designer - Flutter Expressions. She has a Boy/Girl kit ensemble called Just the Thing - Diva Style and Dude Style. I had to do this pic of my grandson Chris in his orange shirt for the Dude kit. He has the "make your own cookie" dessert from Wolfgang Puck in Downtown Disney.

Next up is GoDigitalScrapbooking. For this site CT (called the Supreme Team) I had to complete for four weeks, one LO per week, with an assigned kit. So obviously, I made it to the end and was actually accepted to both CTs within a few days of each other. That scared me! Yikes I hope I didn't over extend! For the ST, I need to do 6 layouts per month. They assign you a kit as you complete your layouts. So I have my first one done there, with a the April Designer Collab called Spring Blossom. I thought it worked very well for Pocahontas - Disney fans will remember the Animal Kingdom's Pocahontas and her Forest Friends attraction, and I had that in mind while making this page.

Note that I extracted the kids and Pocahontas out of the photo. Takes a LONG time to do that, but I think the result was worth it. I also did a challenge at Scrap Matters for this page and made a brush out of a butterfly included in the kit and used it under the string. And I blended that top paper (it started out tan) into the layer below to get that brownish-blue effect. Plus I cut that tree (think Grandmother Willow) out of a paper as well.

That's it for now! I'll be back with more I'm sure!
