Happy Saturday to you!! Is it beautiful where you are? It is here in Michigan! Finally!! I feel like a little girl – wanting to run outside and see what is going on out there in SPRING!! LOL!

There is alot going on at CatScrap right now! We are having a great National Scrapbooking Day Sale! Everything is 30% off through the 9th. And if you make a purchase of $10 or more, you'll get this AMAZING kit for free! A Good Day celebrates that perfect Spring or Summer Day!



Next, I am really excited to tell you about our very first Art Journal Challenge! It is starting off on Fiddlette's (Christine's) blog. She has an amazing freebie for you, along with a little lesson about Art Journals and some gorgeous examples of what our team has come up with for this challenge. This week's theme is HOPE.

Won't you join us as we document in our Art Journals, what hopes, dreams, goals & schemes we may have for ourselves? Art Journaling is such a great outlet and when it's done digitally can be really freeing because a) you don't get messy with paints and b) there is always the undo button! LOL!

I'll be hosting next week's challenge so check back next Saturday! I will have a quick tutorial on ways you can create your own Art Journal page in Photoshop.

I am so excited about this new website called Little Light Studios! The brainchild of Kayla Aimee Terrell and Wilna Furstenberg, the site offers online classes and inspiration for scrapping, paperarts and photography!

This month, I've created a companion brush set for Kayla's Photo Editing class as well as a tutorial on how to use my Polaroid Transfer Masks. You can check it all out here!

I have been on such a class-taking kick lately. I just finished up Kayla's  Bling Your Blog workshop and it was amazing. I learned so much and even did a little coding on my blog. I am not done "blinging" it yet but I like the overall result so far.

Right now, I am taking Kelly Rae Robert's Flying Lessons online seminar and I love it! She is covering all the ways artists can and should be promoting themselves. This weeks's lesson is about time management, which I really need!

Next month, I'm getting out my paint brushes and acrylics to take a mixed media class with Claudine Helmuth over at Big Picture Scrapbooking! I can't wait for it!! It starts July 1.

We just got back from vacation and my little Ellie is sick, so I'm not sure how much class taking I'll be doing today….

I am so proud to be a part of this incredible kit, which was the brainchild of Jan Crowley and Meredith Fenwick, the co-founders of Songbird Avenue. They have been working
the past few weeks to pull together an amazing
collaborative project, "Port au Prince", a digital scrapbooking kit for the benefit of relief in Haiti.

All proceeds from this kit will be donated to Doctors Without Borders. Created by 56 past Songbird Ave. sponsors, Port au Prince is over 1.2 GB and was inspired by the colors and textures of
the Haitian people.

Take a peek and then hop over to Songbird for a great cause!
