American Crafts Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the American Crafts 2013-2014 Design Team Blog Hop! 

We all made layouts about us to get to know us a little better. Here’s my “about me” layout about my favorite place on earth

I love layering and these new pieces from Dear Lizzy’s line were perfect! I painted the veneer arrow with watercolor for a fun ombre effect.


Giveaway! I have a Knock Outs Border Kit to give away to one of you!


Leave a comment on this post by Saturday September 14th 2013 - any comment at all and I’ll send this to one lucky winner!
