Exciting news.........

Hello everyone and welcome to my Blog!

I'm so excited to tell you I have been invited to join the "Stuck on You Sketches" Die Cut Design Team..........I was asked if I would like to start this Friday by joining them in a 

GET to KNOW ME Blog Hop.

What a great way to get to know the Design Team!

This is the Sketch we have based all our layouts on..........

 With a very, very short amount of time to create, I'd like to show you what I came up with.........  I decided to base my layout around all the Scrapbook embellishments I love ! You will see them on most of my creations:)

The cartridges I used for my layout are 'Flower Shoppe and Straight from the nest" for the tittle.
The doilies are a 'Cheery Lyn'die.

And here are some FUN questions I am going to answer about my self.....

1. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Why?
BLUE - I find Blue a very calming colour.........most of my wardrobe consists of different shades of Denim. I am most comfortable in a pair of jeans.

2. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I grew up riding motor bikes and competed in competitions. 

3. What 5 things are always on your crafting table?
Glue Gun, Atg gun , Cricut, Big Shot, Sewing Machine

4. Your go-to embellishment is ...

  5. What is your all-time favorite crafting tool?

6. Tell us about your family .. first in one word. Then in a sentence or two.
Happy..........I have four children, 2 Boys and 2 Girls. There names are Jordyn, Jay, Tori and Matt. My husband is Canadian and we have been married for 25 years.

7. What is your dream vacation?
We have just had our Dream Vacation...........We spent Christmas in Canada with Family, the kids saw snow for the first time.  We had so much fun at Disney Land, we loved San Francisco......5 weeks away went by soooooooo quick:)

8. Who is your favorite crafty company?
I would have to say Provo craft....I love collecting cartridges.Second would be Kaiser.........there is an outlet store only 10 minutes from me! 

9. Tell us a bit about your crafty style.
I do love Shabby and style varies I think, depending on what I am working on.

10. Where do you live?
