2013-2014 American Crafts Design Team Blog Hop



Welcome to the 2013-2014 American Crafts Design Team Blog Hop, where we will each share a layout focusing on...gulp...ourselves!

I have to admit, the assignment was a little unnerving and I pondered long and hard about which direction to take with this page. It’s so easy to scrap a page about someone else…but ME? Yikes!

Then one day, sitting in the car, waiting for my son to exit school, I began a list. It was a simple list, just 10 things. They were things that I enjoy, things that matter, random and in no particular order. And that is the basis of my page. This isn’t THE list and on a different day I could probably come up with a whole other 10 Things, but this is what counts, right now.

 

10 Things I *heart* features papers, stickers, diecuts, ribbon, Thickers and a stamp from  the new and colorful Amy Tangerine collection, Cut & Paste. Fun stuff!


 

Oooo...almost forgot! Leave a comment below by Sunday 10:00PM EST and a winner will be randomly selected to receive this little "sampler" of American Crafts goodies, including my very favorite fine tip journaling pen.



Next up, head on over to see what Elizabeth Gardner has created. If you get lost, hop back here, consult the list below, and pick up where you left off. Here are links to all of the design team participants:


Thanks for joining us today. I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about each of us!
