Crafting Ireland Design Team! :)

This was hard news to keep to myself for the past week or so! I was asked to be on the first design team for a new free on-line scrapbook magazine in Ireland called Crafting Ireland :)
You can see the announcement and meet the other design team members here.
The current issue,  #10 became available yesterday.
They also have a Facebook page as well :)

Timi and Nicole have put together a fun, inspiring magazine and I am happy to be a part of it!

They introduced the new team in issue ten as well as on the blog, but you won't be seeing our work in there yet Not until issue 11, and I can't wait!

And in the spirit of my new team, a few more pages from my mother-in-law's Ireland trip album :)
 Just some group shots with a journal spot in the center for her to write.
Sorry, the black color is a little off on this page. And the crooked "T" has been fixed. But really just didn't want to take a whole new photo just for the "T" :) Another journal area for her to fill in at the bottom.
And one of my favorite pages from the album. Not because of the "scrapbooking" but because of the photos. I love that photo of Mike's mom on the donkey. She is so beautiful. But I really love his grandmother on the donkey. Especially that bottom photo. I just love that she looks like she has such a wonderful sense of humor. I so wish I could have met her. And I love Mike's grandpa's handwritten notes about the photos.
This is what scrapbooking is all about! :)
