Well, I hope you're enjoying the hop so far!! How about Lynn's little goodies?! She has so many fun things to peek at! Prepare yourself, because this is the blog that never ends.....yes it goes on and on my friends...some people started reading in not knowing what it was, and they'll continue reading it forever just because this is the blog that never ends.....(admit it, you know this song.)
Anyway, I'm glad you found your way here - there's lots to talk about and I guess I should start with a little bit about me.
My name is Brittny Lejeune (yes, it's spelled that way) and I live in Vacaville, California. I'm a recent transplant from San Luis Obispo, California (and I miss it like crazy) where I got my bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture, worked as a graphic designer, and met my soon-to-be ball and chain...ehem... I mean the love of my life, Eric. After I graduated I was introduced to a lovely little economy where jobs for Landscape Architects don't exist and as a result I am now officially a stay-at-home fiance pursuing my love of scrapbooking.
I co-own a small scrapbooking studio in Fresno, California with my mom, Sarah, where I have been teaching classes and hosting small crops for the last couple of years. I consider myself to be a connoisseur of smut novels and chocolate and look forward to the day when I have a house full of kids to keep me from enjoying both.
Recently I've begun working with a repping firm in Northern California - MILLSREPCO - and am having the time of my life! How many people get to say, "Oh, I'm sorry - I'd love to meet you for brunch, but I have a conference call this morning with 7 Gypsies." Yeah, life is good!
I am so honored and excited to be on the Nook's design team. You won't find a more talented group anywhere! I have had an amazing term so far and I hope I can stay around forever!

January has blown in with extra charm and sweetness to chase away those nippy winter days! In a cheerful palette featuring Pink Paislee papers and chipboard and sparkles galore you will be tickled pink by this lovely kit!

Here's a layout I did using the kit. Yup, don't adjust your screen folks, that is in fact Maggie, Leah's little girl you're looking at. I gotta say, not having your own set of cute little doe-eyed googly-face cherubs is really detrimental to one's scrappyness.
Here's another little project I made, perfect for holding all of those darling Valentine's you'll be getting from your lovey doveys this year! I used the Scenic Route chipboard butterflies to make this little holder - just glue on some paper, sand the edges and attach a mini clothes pin to the back of each one!
