Voting Time again!

It's that time already -- time to vote for me in the Designer Darling Challenge.  This was a little tougher challenge.  We had to scan or photograph 3 items and extract them.  Now extracting is no problem for me.  But the scanner wasn't cooperating and I am still learning how to take macro photos with my new camera.  And I had to have my submission in a couple days before the deadline because we went away on the weekend, so I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to have to perfect this one.  Long story short... this week was very challenging for me!  I still feel like I did well though.  What the judges were looking for was unique items (hey I didn't do flowers and ribbons like everybody else!), clarity, a clean extraction and useability, as well as an attractive preview.  From those points, I did quite well, don't you think?

You are also invited to download it if you would like: As per the rules of the challenge, the Link is in the Designer Darling post

Please vote for me, True North Scraps, at this link:  Click here to vote for me!  This week you only get ONE vote (!!) so make sure it is me.   Thank you.  :)

Good Fortune

This is the year of the dragon! The dragon is the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac, and is considered to be very lucky! Chinese couples try to have babies born under this sign, because people born in the Year of the Dragon are said to have strong personalities, and be ambitious, and self-assured. Parents hope to see their children married under this sign as well since the dragon is the luckiest and most auspicious of all the animal signs. Keystone is wishing you the best of luck this year as well, and created a new Asian inspired kit for your Year of the Dragon scrapping!

Here's a taste of the orient to add a little spice and beauty to your
pages! This Asian inspired kit is a must to scrap your photos of the
Chinese New Year, EPCOT China, an oriental vacation, pandas, Chinese
takeaway night, and so many other pages! There's a great assortment of
papers and elements that range from the cute and whimsical to beautiful
and elegant! Something for every taste and style! This great kit is
bursting at the seams with over 20 papers, 70 elements, and a full

Take a look at the great pages I created!
