Paper Whimsy Fun and Giveaway Winner!

Oh dear...I'm lost in fun using Paper Whimsy products...
and it's easy to see why...I love the fancy wood shapes  and the beautiful collage sheets...
Here are some sneak peaks to some of the items already planned for upcoming Stampington issues...




Plus I am so excited to have my first Inspire team blog post coming up soon on the Paper Whimsy blog...my PW art Sisters make the most inspiring and delicate things...check out Jill Mc Call's current post...it's dreamy,I promise.
---------------------------
Now for the Giveaway win...
Dum dum Duuuuumm...
My teenager...that no longer lets me take a picture of her(what's up with that)...picked out...
Now,Alison is a new friend and I just visited her blog
and holy smackeroonies...her art is amazing!!
Thank you so much to everyone that visited me and left me a comment.
I really really appreciate it.
-----------------------
Now before I leave..I'm sharing a photo I recently took of myself.A publisher requested it for an upcoming issue... and omygosh I had no idea it was going to be sooooo difficult to take a self portrait...
100000+ photos later..
I kind of look like a goober...but after a while I couldn't stand the site of myself
so I pushed myself to make a decision.
Check out my cool new Cat in the Hat apron..
found it here..
snazzy huh?
heehee.
Have a wonderful day friends!!

Thank you so much, Cat - well, and thanks to your teenager too, of course for picking my name out... and for that lovely shout out. Thrilled to have won your lovely doodads, and so happy you liked what you found over at mine...

Love today's projects too... Those little memory frames are so cool, and exquisitely done - and those spiders webs on the frame are fabulous!!
Thanks again, for the win and for the inspiration,
Alison xx

Your new photo is adorable....look at that smile! And that APRON! Nice to see you, Cat. I think we all hate having our photos taken (especially me) because what I THINK I look like, is NOT what the camera sees!!!!

Have a happy weekend. Oh, your daughter looks so much like you!

Hugs
Jan

Cat.....I love this photo. You have your beautiful smile and apron on and hands on hips says, I'm ready to do some serious artwork. I love the glimpses of future articles, especially the spells/spiders one. Hugs, Jackie

How exciting for you!!!!!! I look forward to seeing your projects!
I am an OLD FAN of paperwhimsy!!

Cindy said...

Hello Cat! Your Paper Whimsy projects look beautiful - just the sort of thing that drew me in to your work when I first "met" you! I had to smile about Hannah not wanting her picture taken...my 12 year old is getting more and more like that, and he is quick to add, "you're not sharing this on FB or something, are you??" I guess it goes with the age, but it is kinda sad.
Your bio picture is really adorable - your personality sure shines through!
