Well, I threw my hat in the ring for the Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) Design Team but sadly, I didn't make the team (even though they tweeted two of my layouts in the last week). I wish the bigger companies would take the time to thank everyone who applied so we at least know if they got the application. I mean, really, how tragic would it be if they didn't even get the email? I seriously wonder sometimes with cyberspace. Sigh. Here's layout one I created and submitted (and they tweeted and commented on on 2peas) for the call.
and the second layout that was tweeted this morning... I am pretty proud of this one. I don't often use patterned paper such as this but somehow, when creating with it, it just worked. I really like it!
And a project life page using their fun cards, stickers and rub ons (stitching on this, too).
It's interesting to me that their own Design Team doesn't seem to be using the usual sources for promoting themselves..if you search MAMBI on 2peas, only a handful of layouts come up and besides mine the others were uploaded by the DT coordinator in the last week. Same story for twitter. Maybe they don't need the promotion? We all love their products and they are easily available at the box stores....That said, I love MAMBI...I use it for all my themed layouts that are not DT work, so I thought it would be a GREAT fit for me to be on their team. I'm pretty sad that I was tweet worthy, but not DT worthy. Oh well. Two more pages for the books. And I will never stop using their products...I just LOVE them! Maybe next year. I look forward to the new teams inspiration for this year!
In other, more positive news, it's almost time to decorate for Halloween!! Yippeee! My favorite time of the year! I will be dragging down all the bins (yes, bins. I have at least 6 for Halloween alone) over the weekend and spookifying my house! I will share pictures when I'm done. ;) Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
