Congratulations are in order for Allison Davis, teacher and Design Team member at Scrapbook Generation (and also my daughter!). About a month ago, Allison found out that she was the third place winner in an online store's contest. Layout entries were required to focus on Daisy D's paper. Ali entered a page using the gorgeous Gypsy Harvest papers from Daisy D's (see the top photo), and won third out of a ton of entrants. She received all kinds of fun Daisy D's products as a prize.

But the best news happened just a few days ago. Allison has been chosen as a Fancy Pants Design Team honorable mention! She submitted four layouts and a project (a cute chipboard album made from "Bigger Board" chipboard sheets -- watch for a similar project as an Allison class in a few weeks!). Her work will soon be shown at Fancy Pants is one of our favorite new companies -- love the papers and the huge chipboard shapes. Now that Allison is teaming up with the company, watch for us to carry even more of their products!

As a mom, it's fun for me to hear all the compliments that people pay Ali's pages here in the store. It's nice as well to see her work continue to be recognized as outstanding. She's been submitting pages like crazy, and it seems like it should just be a matter of time before she gets something published. If I were choosing the pages, I know she would!
