A little Madness in the Spring, Is wholesome even for the King....

.....or for the “Goddess” of the Bind-it-All Springtime Challenge!!!!!

The above quote is from Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), and better describes the madness the Design Team had in trying to determine their favorite projects for this challenge! While we may all be a bit looney with our socks knocked off of us with the terrific projects, we all agreed that it was a great privilege to view your work.

So without further adieu, here is our Springtime Challenge Goddess, and her winning project….
Norma Kennedy and her fabric covered, handmade address book.
Norma, the design team raved about your use of fabric and the clever way you wrapped the owire binding. It's beautiful, functional and so meaningful (because you made it yourself). It's sure to be a treasured address book for years to come! Congratulations! Norma, email me ( your choice of the R10 or R5 Round-it-All and your shipping address.

Note: 5/18/09: Norma's design is so fabulous that it got picked up for publication, so we removed the photos. Watch for it in a scrappy mag later this year :)
And, just because we felt like it, we picked a runner up… "Goddess-in-Waiting"...ShabbyShaz!
The BIA Design Team liked the mini-ness, the roundness, the softness, and the digi-ness of this spring themed album. This representation of the photos doesn't do the project justice, so please check out ShabbyShaz's blog to see the larger versions.

Congrats to you, too, ShabbyShaz! We are going to send you some Cover-Alls and Owire in NEW Antique Silver to keep your creativity going! Email me your shipping address at

Ladies, enjoy your virtual tiaras and thanks for participating.

Design Team member and resident Texas Scrap Addict, Vicki, will be blogging soon about the May Project Challenge....she will have you spinning with creativity (*hint hint)!!!

Have a great weekend!
