Big fat cheater head, a design team call, and somebody come and play...somebody come and play today...

So after getting a few comments and questions I decided that I may want to explain my comment from my post before about being a big fat cheater head.... it all stems from different conversations with some scrappy friends (you know who you are) over the years about people that kind of skirt along the edges of rules for contests and things.... over time it just became known as being a "big fat cheater head"... it still makes me laugh to read it...and seriously laugh to type it yet again on my blog there you have it...the history of that dubious title!!!

Now onto the fun stuff....want to come out and play with us on the Paper Popsicles What's the Scoop blog??? Want free digital stamps and card shapes to play with.....want to hang out with Melissa, Tricia, and I? (well of course you know you do....) Here's the scoop:
