Favorite 5

 
Wow!! A year has gone by that quickly??
What a fabulous ride this has been (and a DREAM come true for me).
I still can't believe that I can call myself a part of this American Craft's Design Team Alumni!!
This company has been so wonderfully generous and organized - I am really going to miss being a part of it but am happy to stay a customer and cheer on the 2012-13 DT.
I have to also send a special shout out to Paige Evans - she really is on top of things, always encouraging & wonderful, a FAB designer and a Momma to 2 little babies full time to boot!
I don't know how she does it but she makes it seem effortless and I will be forever in awe of her.
Thank you, Paige! I am really happy to have been on your team this year.
 
WOW!
 
Now, on to business.
Hopefully you have just arrived from the Oh-So-Talented Lilith Eekles' blog.
She is crazy talented - make sure you go back and visit her & leave her some love if you haven't been there yet. If you want to start the hop from the beginning, please start HERE.
 
Before I bid adieu to this team, I wanted to share 5 of my favorite American Crafts LOs.
These are using lines and colors that just make me happy.
I hope you like these too.

Supplies: Amy Tangerine Sketchbook
(Fave time of day= cuddles with my fam before Little Man's bed time)

Supplies: Dear Lizzy
 
 
Supplies: Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine
 
Supplies: Chap
 
Supplies: Chap
 
 
Honorable Mentions ;)
 
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a LO girl and altered items, mini albums and cards do NOT come easily to me.
 
That being said, I made this wreath of rolled paper flowers & ribbons and it was on my door up until this week. (Now I need to find my fall wreath - eek!)
 
I LOVE how it turned out and am proud that it was an American Crafts project :)
Supplies: Dear Lizzy line

And last but not least, I want to share this card that I made for my DT application last year.
The bright colors and buttons just make me happy.
I hoarded these supplies for so long, I can't even remember what AC line these papers are from but if you still have some kicking around in your stash, dig it out! It's a wonderful color scheme to play with.
 
Make sure to head on over to Amy Heller's blog next! This girl is on fire in the scrappy world and one to keep an eye on (and I am a HUGE-HUGE fan of hers).
 
Thanks for stopping by!
HUGS & Happy surfing!
 
Thank you again, American Crafts!!
