Happy Anniversary to me!

Today is my design anniversary: eight years ago today I opened up my shop at The Lilypad! It’s been an amazing ride – my designing has gone from a little spin-off from my digital scrapbooking obsession, to my full-time job and I will be forever grateful to everyone who spent their hard-earned pennies on my doodles! I love being able to draw for a living, being able to connect with my customers and see how they use those drawings in their own memory keeping and crafting projects means the world to me. Thank you to everyone who has supported my little business over the past eight years!

If you have already got in touch and asked me to draw a specific theme for you, please feel free to also enter this contest. I am working through my existing list of theme requests as and when I can, but as that list is already very long you might like to try to jump the queue by entering the contest! Winners will be contacted on Monday 2nd March.

It’s always fun for me to hear what you would like me to draw, I can’t wait to read all your suggestions.Thanks for your support over the past eight years, here’s to the next eight!

February Challenge | Chance to win $15 gift card!

Hi everyone, I am stepping in for Nicole this month to bring you a new blog challenge! Thank you to everyone who has entered any of the previous challenges, it’s always so exciting for me to see all the different interpretations of the templates and the super pages you create with them pop up in my gallery! And now – on to last month’s winner: the random generator picked familyhistoryscrapper as January’s winner, with her lovely “Tub Fun” page! Congratulations Amy, please check your PMs over at TLP for details of how to claim your prize!

This month’s template was inspired by my 8 year design anniversary celebrations, hence the “Pieces of Eight” theme! I thought it would be a fun way of illustrating a list of favourites, or for documenting events where you end up with lots and lots of photos!
