As we enter into the Thanksgiving weekend, and this is my Monday, I decided to spend some time cleaning out my clip gallery, I have been downloading digi scrap products like crazy, and search for more everyday.....it's like crack! Or to me coffee, as I can't live without my morning fix. I went through a couple of 100,000 kb's of downloads, and couldn't decide what had to go :( My hubby says it will eventually slow down my computer, Linda I feel your pain, maybe that is just my husband on my a** about using up so much disk space.........."whatever" (refer to previous post "LOVED THIS"). Because it doesn't really feel like winter here yet, it is hard for me to get into the spirit of the whole Holiday thing yet! I am jealous of some of the blog friends out there, because they actually experience a change in weather with the seasons. KayJay, has already had snow on several days. My sis-in-law, Chrissy, aka....Smoothie, will be locked in the house with her crazy kids any day now because of winter weather. And here I am, stuck along the warm coast, eating my meals on the back porch or restaurant decks overlooking the beautiful Gulf, taking walks along the beach to pick up shells, and just enjoying the general indolence of the area. The only real way I know winter has come, is the increase of camoflauge my family is wearing. Seriously wrong. When looking through some downloads I found this one, and it seemed perfect for last years unveiling of the camo by Emi. Of course, she did it with her style, by the adding of some pink and bling, but it still very much what my Daddy's little girl will wear most days.

I did it! .......I put in my submission for a creative team call! What was I thinking? Yes, I have been scrapbooking for years, and I dooooo love me some altered art!!!! But (yes...I know you should not start a sentence that way ;) it stayed on my mind all weekend. Should a newbie be allowed to jump into such a commitment? What would I tell me, if I asked for my opinion? Because you know I have one ;).........I am pretty sure I will hear a very polite" no thank you at this time", but I knew it would just drive me crazy if I did not at least try!!!!! It is kinda like when you write several chapters of a book, in my case almost two completed books, and you know you have to send them out there for the rejection letters to come in!! I mean...trial by error is all part of scrapbooking anyway. How many pages have you completely re-done when a newer option came out?....Me?.....plenty. When I started, the coolest things we had were those crazy die cuts they use at schools! I mean come on, how often can you really use a 6" pumpkin or cornucopia? No wonder we all went to 12x12's!!!!! As I end this, know that you too have to get out there and throw yourself at something new as well. I'll keep you posted and let you know as soon as I hear! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
