My Minds Eye Prize Giveaway & spotlight

Things have been hectic around here lately. I have some fun stuff to share and I'm excited about it. Heather from Everything Scrapp'n has been kind enough to give me a prize to give away here on my blog. It is the My Mind’s Eye MagnoliaStarburst” Card Kit!

Here is what it includes: 4 polka dot cards, 4 stripe cards, 8 envelopes, 3 “happy birthday” die-cuts, 3 “Thanks” die-cuts, 3 “Thank You” tags, 3 “A Little Hello” borders, 3 “Birthday Girl” die-cuts, 6 large flowers, 9 small flowers.
To win this kit, leave a comment on this blog post by Thursday, April 23rd telling me what your first job out of school was/is. I am curious to see what kind of jobs come up. I hope to pick a winner during the weekend.

Say It In Scrap Challenge #17 is posted! Boy is this one a real challenge too. We used the word taboo for inspiration. When I hear the word taboo, I think of the game Taboo. I didn't have any photos that initially made me think of the other meaning for taboo so I spun it to fit the kids playing a game.
This page is also for my dt work for Everything Scrapp'n. I used the new My Minds Eye Line, Bloom to scrap for this challenge.

Products used:
MME Bloom-Bijou Birds Brown paper
MME Bloom Vines paper
MME die cuts from Bloom Accessory Sheet
Cream cardstock
American Crafts Thickers Rainboots Black
American Crafts DIY-Flair Craft Fair
Catslife Press "Notes from today" stamp
ColorBox Cats Eye chalk- Tangerine, Lime Pastel, Rouge, and Chestnut Roan

My first job was when I was 15 and I was in high school. I worked at Key Food Grocery Store as a cashier. I hated standing for long hours at the register. I loved the people who I worked with. I worked there for four summers.

My first job out of college was a teacher at a Catholic school. I was so scared that I was going to mess up. I've been teaching for a dozen years and I will never forget how difficult that year was.

So my first job was screenprinting caps for swimmers (I don't know how you've call that in English), during the summer vacasion when I was 16 years old. I did that for 3 days, then a friend called to the printshop joking to my boss that he was a tax inspector and heard that I was working there illigal. Afther 2 minutes I was fired :-(
My friend was very sad and bought flowers for me and my boss..but that did''t work. Now we can lough about that incident.
My first job out of college was in a boutique. I worked there for 2 years before going back to school. Now I'm a journalist.

My first job out of high school was working at a berry farm (summer after). When I dropped out of college, I got a job as a loan processor at a finance company. Wow was that an education!

My fist job OUT of HS was as night auditor at a hotel. My actual first job was at McDonald's and lasted out of school until my hotel job. The hotel job was my favorite all-time job!
