Journal Page, Discount Code and Class Giveaway!

Hi everyone!!! Here I am again with an action packed Friday.  Much to share so it's another long one!

Today I'm featured on the Simon Says Blog with my March Journal page entry.  This was a fun one... it's so full of texture, one that you want to touch. The title is... "It is what it is... Isn't it?" This represents all the things that just happen...out of our control...just deal with it...can't change it. You can find the video and more HERE.  I've put together a list of products I've used and why HERE.


TRUE STAMP starts tomorrow!!! It is an amazing all day stamping affair with incredible designers. 


 I'll be there LIVE answering questions.  The kind folks at Simon Says Stamp has given me a promo code: CREATE for $20 off!!!  They are so generous!!! This code is only good through mid-night tonight!
You can register HERE!


 And now for an Online Class spot GIVEAWAY!!!! Once again, I am part of the Online Card Classes. Pattern Play starts March 18th.  SO much FUN!!!
I'm giving away one spot in class.  You can enter for a chance to win by commenting on this post by Sunday (March 10) at 11:59 CST.  I'll Announce the winner on Monday!  Good Luck!!!

Thanks everyone!!! Good Luck and have a great week-end!!!
