Buzzin' By with a fun announcement...

Remember a few posts ago when I said I've been looking through my older Creating Keepsakes mags and turning scrapbook sketches into card sketches? Well, this is one of my favorites! It's a Jennifer McGuire sketch and it is such a great way to use up all those bits and pieces laying around my worktable!

I used Bees Knees one of my very favorite Our Craft Lounge (OCL) sets, along with scraps of various papers and cardstock. The honeycomb, bees, flower and word *honey* are all from the set, along with the center image and adorable sentiment.
You'll notice I used a bit of bling to sparkle things up! :o)
(you can click on the images to get a closer look if you'd like).


So... on to the fun announcement! OCL has formed a design team to bring you ideas and challenges and swaps and all kinds of fun stuff each month! AND I am lucky enough to be part of the fun!

You can find details on the June (sheesh, how did it get to be June already?!?!) OCL Sketch Challenge HERE! The sketch is just adorable and you have until June 25th to share your creations and be entered into the contest

You can find details on the first ever OCL Card Swap HERE! What a great way to get some extra cards for your stash!

Oh, and I can't forget the Spotlight Set of the Week - Bookworm! HERE!

Here is a list of the rest of the OCL Design Team members - be sure and check out what they're up to!
