I cannot STAND keeping secrets.  It makes me nuts.  Well, nuttier than usual.
Thankfully I have only had to sit on THIS big news for four days!

(climbs up on a soap box)
Guess who is is the newest Stamping Bella Babe!
It's me! It's me!  Awwwwww yeah!  

I officially start designing for Stamping Bella in December, but thankfully I got the green light from the one and only "Emabella" to climb up on my soap box today and shout out the news into cyber space! I am crazy excited to be joining this groups of amazingly talented women who are not only talented but just plain F-U-N......and a little nutty.  Ahhhhh!  Home Sweet Home!

I figured it only made sense to celebrate by coloring up Uptown Girls Victoria and Juliette's Night Out!

I colored my image with copics and used the SUPER COOL new Lil' Inker Instant Camera die.  I paired some PP from the Carta Bella Paris Girl 6x6 paper pad with some Bazzill Card Shoppe marshmallow and licorice twist CS.  I heat embossed the sentiment and added some satin swiss dot ribbon.
