March 5, 2008


OK, they have finally announced so I can spill the beans!!!

A friend of mine here in Austin told us about the Adornit Teen Chix talent search. So, Cait and I talked and a friend of ours sent down some Adornit product she had in her stash and Cait got to creating!!!

The deadline for the entry was 2/14 and Cait had her stuff in WELL before that - like a week or so after the contest was announced!!! LOL We've not been able to share any of her work until after the winners announced and we found out Monday and had to keep quiet until the podcast today.

So, HERE is the podcast. It is short and sweet and doesn't say last names but Caitlin is her!!!! This is the Adornit Chix website with the podcast posted on the site.

The email notification she got was this:

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
