Hi everyone! Today is that special day of the month when the Garden Girls from Two Peas in a Bucket bring you our Gardeners' Digest blog hop! The Gardeners' Digest is a monthly update (blog hop) that includes sneak peaks of upcoming projects, recent inspiration found at Two Peas, and our favorite products found in the shop! You probably just arrived from our newest Garden Girl, Lexi's blog. If not, start the hop at the Two Peas blog, here.
ComingSoonFirst, I wanted to share a couple sneak peeks . . .GardenersDigest_DetailGrid_AH
I have several projects in the Two Peas que including a couple upcoming weekly challenges, so be on the lookout for those. For now, I'll give you a little peek at a couple things to come. :)


I love looking through the Galleries at all the wonderful creativity in our community! This month, I thought I would look within our own Two Peas Garden to find a project that really spoke to me.Projects-f949d6b0-1aa8-464a-a758-001c0b32e1c7-a646533ae55b4c71bc7964d8d368b1e5
I am completely and utterly smitten with this page from Lexi Bridges. From the texture to the colors, I feel Fall in this page and I just love everything about it. It's just beautiful.

5ProductsIloveThis past month has brought in close to 1,000 NEW products into the Two Peas Store! That makes it very difficult to choose just 5 favorites, that's for sure! But here are some that are definitely speaking to me given the change of seasons right now. :)

GiveawayNow for the fun stuff!! Here on my blog, I am giving away one spot in Garden Girl, Lynn Ghahary's new 2 Peas workshop, Step Up Your Scrapbooking.StepupnewsletterHere's the official info about the workshop:

Have you ever finished a scrapbook page only to feel that you were missing that “something special”? Perhaps you are new to scrapbooking and looking for ways to take your layouts to the next level.  Or you might be an experienced scrapbooker who is feeling the loss of your scrappy mojo, and looking for ways to increase the creative appeal of your pages.  Well then this is the workshop for you!

You’ll find this class packed with surefire ways to take your layouts to the next level with a toolkit full of tried and true designer tips and tricks.  The techniques outlined in each lesson are straightforward and easy to follow, but really pack a big punch in the design department.  You’ll find your layouts have gone from “good” to “great” just by following a few of the design guidelines covered in this class. StepupsneakcollageEach lesson will focus on one of five main design categories: backgrounds, photos, titles, journaling, and embellishments.  With 10 lessons per chapter that’s 50 designer tips & tricks to refer back to when you’re faced with your next “what’s missing?” dilemma.  A brand new, never before seen page example by Lynn (as well as some other special guest designers) accompanies each lesson to help get you started.  Additionally, an informative PDF and instructional video is provided for each chapter.  Each video not only reviews the lessons included in the chapter, but also features the start to finish process of one of the chapter layouts as well. 

Whether you’re an experienced scrapbooker or new to the hobby, this workshop has something for everyone.  So grab your scissors, paper, and glue and let’s step up your scrapbooking!

Cost of class is $25 * If you already purchased Lynn's class and you happen to win a spot you can be reimbursed or gift your spot to a friend! Your choice.
Please leave me a comment here on my blog telling me what you'd love to learn from Lynn's class by Midnight ET, Thursday, September 27, 2012 for your chance to win a spot in this awesome workshop The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
