American Crafts Design Team Blog Hop!

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-6zbeYUa-ZUA/UihyNms6yTI/AAAAAAADA9c/orMRdzJEofw/s1600/ACDT+Blog+Hop+Image.jpg

Hello and welcome to the American Crafts 2013-2014 Design Team Blog Hop! The purpose of this hop is to get to know each of our new team members on a more personal and up-close level! 


Everyone on the team is sharing a layout all about themselves and here is my layout. I used the brand new Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party collection mixed with some older 5th & Frolic collection for my layout all about me! This has been somewhat of a rough year for me so I focused my journaling on how I have changed and what I have learned this year.



Of course, one of my favorite roles in life is that of mom so I had to include a little photo of that. I love the frame patterned paper in the collection. I cut out a bunch of frames and then placed pretty patterned papers inside that I cut to fit. Most of the papers are from the 6x6 paper pad. 


I am so loving the Amy Tangerine stitching templates. This one is not one of the new ones but I couldn't resist stitching a little heart. 


I also love the new square frames in this collection and I layered some patterned paper labels inside so I could add my title and journaling. 



The bird stickers are from 5th & Frolic and the paper clip is a My Girl embellishment. I love that I can mix older collections in with the new. 


And now for my giveaway...

 
I have a fun assortment of some American Crafts products that I will send out to one lucky reader! Please leave me a comment here and I will draw a winner next Friday (the 13th) and post the winner. 

Your next stop on the blog hop is Lilith Eeckels.

Here is the full list of all design team members:
