Lily Bee and me...

...would you believe me if I told you that I never heard of {{Lily Bee Design}} until a few weeks ago?
I know!!! I must have been living under a rock. But I guess since I have started to use up all my old stash, I had no time to look around for new papers and just went with what was on hand.

So when my old DT teamie {{Jill Cornell}} told us about their current {{DT Call}} and one of their current DT members {{Virginia Tillery}} said how much fun it is to create with their product, I did something I generally never do: I bought some of their papers specifically to enter their call.

My general "philosophy" is that if I apply for a team, I have to LOVE their products and have to enjoy working with their stuff. I simply cannot submit to a call on a "just because" basis, especially if I haven't heard of the company before.

So, I have gone against everything I believe in this time because I fell in love with their papers the minute I checked out their product line. Within half a day of the papers arriving, I created these layouts and the card/tag combo which I showcased in {{this post}}

** P.S. Does anyone else have the same problem with blogger at the moment? The thumbnail for my pictures on here look all blurry but when you click onto them to see their original size, they are crisp and clear. Any ideas what the problem may be? **

So, their submission deadline is 31 March 2011, still a few nail biting days ahead of me before I will learn if I am part of the team.

One thing is for sure though - whether I get accepted or not, Lily Bee is HIGH on the list of my fave manufacturers right now and you can expect to see many more projects using their product on my blog. If I had some spare cash I would buy the recent {{Jump & Jive}} Kit from Noel Mignon, which features the newest Lily Bee releases

Last but by no means least, I created a wee tag for the recent challenge over at {{Some Odd Girl}} - how fun to play along again at my old "hunting ground" :)
