BlogTourPrincessI am a princess!  Did you see my crown?  Look at the side bar on my blog and you will see my princess crown.  I never really thought of myself as a girly girl – I was not into princess stuff – I grew up outside in a sailing club – sailing with boys.  I’m not big on makeup (rarely wear any), I don’t reallly like to shop, and I don’t have a million pairs of shoes either – and God blessed me with three boys so I really don’t have a girly life at all.  But now I am a princess and I’m so excited!  Why am I a princess?

Well that is because I am one of the blogs on the Royal Blog Tour that will take place on July 26, 27, and 28th.  You might remember that I participated in a blog tour in April and one in May.  What is a blog tour?  A group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Late Night Stampers group have gotten together to feature projects showcasing different stamp sets from the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog.  Each blog on the tour will be linked to the next blog and you will be able to travel during the tour dates from one to another.  There will be four different tours that you can take during the Royal Blog Tour dates.  Each tour will have 20 stops.  You will get to visit demonstrators from all over the world with all different stamping styles.  If you click on my crown you will get to the Royal Blog Tour blog where you can get all the details about all the tours.

My featured stamp set is going to be the new Circle Circus stamp set.  I have been working on my projects and I made THE CUTEST scrapbook page!  I can’t wait to share it!  I’m so excited about how it turned out that it will be part of my July Scrapbook class which is the day after the tour – on July 29th.  I wish I could show you but you will just have to check back and visit me during the tour.  I also made a cool interactive card featuring a combination of two techniques (I guess you call them techniques) in one card.  You’ll get to see the card during the tour and then you’ll have to visit me again for a tutorial on how to make it.  Just a hint – don’t throw away the leftover rubber from your die-cut stamps – you can use it to make this cool card!

I can’t tell you any more you will just have to be patient.  Mark your calendar and come vist me during those three days!

Princess Monika needs to get back to work now and get some other things done.

I’m giving you a royal princess wave…..      ))))))))))
