2012 Artisan Award Winning Blog Hop - Project 6

We're already more than halfway done with our parade of Artisan-Award-Winning projects!! Can you believe it?? It's been really fun sharing with all y'all ... thanks so much for all the kind comments/emails ... I appreciate it more than you know!!

Once again, if you are following the hop around in a circle (for that IS how they work, isn't it??), you have just come from the ever-fantabulously talented Sarah Sagert. Once again, beautifully done!!

I have shown you all the cards that I made for the Artisan Award contest, so I am now moving on to my scrapbook pages. Scrapbook pages are where I got my start in papercrafting (and I hate to admit that I still own a whole toolbox full of those crazy, decorative scissors!). I love traditional scrapbooking ... and I REALLY love adding digital elements to my layouts (the only digital component on this page is the date under the photo). My daughter actually took this photo of herself while we were having a great weekend up at Bear Lake. It has long been one of my favorite photos of her!! Actually, one of my favorite components on this page is the little bit of crocheting I did on the trim next to her photo with some baker's twine ... it was just so much fun!

Stamps: Happiness Shared
Paper: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die, Circle Scissor, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Serif Essentials Bigz Die, Naturally Serif Sizzlets Die, Neutrals Buttons, Regals Buttons, Fleurettes, Linen Thread, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, My Digital Studio (Lauren’s Letters and Smitten Alphabet Punches), Dimensionals, Sewing Machine, Crochet Hook

I am heading out of town for a few days to spend a little time at Disneyland (yes, yes ... AGAIN!! Gotta get some use out of my Annual Passport!! And it IS for my birthday, so I feel like it's okay!). No worries, though ... I'll make sure and schedule some posts to go up so that I can finish the last few days of the blog hop, so stay tuned!

Check out what Amy Bollman has posted today ... you are gonna LOVE it!!
