I'm a Garden Girl?


Mother of pearl.
I'm a Two Peas Garden Girl.

It is surreal and crazy unexpected. I'm not sure I really belong up there with those designers, but choosing design team girls is so subjective right? So, I'll go with it and enjoy it for all its worth.

I've been on 2Peas since the very beginning when Bryce & Madeline stickers and paper dolls were all the rage. I shop there. I post my layouts there. I've made friends there. And to be part of that community as a Garden Girl is just....there are no words.

My first assignment was a seasonal winter layout for today. I won't lie, it took me forever and boy did I feel the 'pressure' of coming up with something GG worthy. So after sweating it for days, I stuck true to my (old-school) scrapbooking style and came up with this.

Sorry it's just a peek. I deleted the original large photo and now I'm too lazy to go back and re-shoot. You can still see the entire thing here 2Peas Gallery if you'd like.

The one really sad thing to come of this is that I've had to step down from Work in Progress kits. I love these kits and Trish and the whole design team. Using Trish's kits really pushed me outside of my comfort zone  and challenged me to try new things. I think they improved my design skills by leaps and bounds. So I'm thankful and grateful for the opportunity.

And if you're looking for a great kit club, I highly recommend WIP. Great stuff, great design team and great service!
