want to design project life? i sure do.

I just adore Becky Higgins, from her style to ideas to her interesting posts from finds from stores around where she lives or her decorating ideas, the woman is genius in everything she thinks up. I'm in awe :) A friend of mine showed me her sketches book for scrapbooking and that's where I fell in love with her style. I follow her blog and of course "like" her on Facebook.

Her recent post titled "Want to design Project Life?" stopped me in my tracks. Me, being a graphic designer, instantly had these thoughts of MY designs hitting people's homes and having them be in awe with something little ol' me designed :) Okay, I dream big, but I'm thrilled to be working on my design for Project Life. And let me just say, I am beyond excited about my design and I really think I have a shot!

Check out her blog post about it and wish me luck!!! FINGERS CROSSED. I'm putting the finishing touches on it hopefully today because I have to submit it by May 4th. This is my first step into getting my designs out there to the crafting community :)

I submitted my design concept this afternoon to Becky Higgins, so I'm crossing my fingers super, duper tight!!!! Obviously, I can't post anything, but I will say that I used a lot of fresh color combos that I'm just loving and it's not as girly as some of her other designs, so I hope that's a good thing!!! I know I love it and even if I don't get to be the designer, I'm going to possibly sell the digi images so other people can use them! That's how much I adore it :)

Simply Scrapping Crafts Blog Hop, April 2011

Here is another exciting blog hop for Simply Scrapping Crafts!! I'm thrilled to be able to post another card that I created exclusively for this hop. It's an adorable Unity/Ippity Stamp that I bought at Archiver's last week and since spring was the theme, this is PERFECT for a spring themed card. I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Here is my first ever card that I've entered in a PTI Blog Hop and I'm so excited about participating!!! I don't have a huge collection of PTI stamps...yet. I'm in love, of course, with ALL of them, and I got a few key sets I knew I would use all the time for cards (which I have!) last summer at CHA in Rosemont, Illinois. I cannot wait to go again this year. I have a "wish list" prepared already :) Now to start saving!!

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you enjoy my take on the PTI Blog Hop challenge of making a masculine type card. This will go in my stash for an upcoming boy's birthday...the bike added the perfect touch :)

Here is a link for the hop to see the other talented people out there!!

Just a close-up of the detail in the rub-on and the stamped wording at the bottom!

WELCOME to Project: Organized Chaos

Thanks for visiting! I'm Roxanne and this is Project: Organized Chaos. This is how I've always described my crafting style. My workspace is utter chaos, but somehow, it's organized in my mind.

I will be posting things that I've created, which right now, I'm loving making cards. I also scrapbook, but I'm so far behind now (I have 2 children, 1 and almost 6) and I've put those on the back burner for my cards and other projects. Enjoy, subscribe or check back often as I hope to post at least once a week!! I'm also going to start my P90X so we'll see how posting goes :)

Thanks for visiting!
