Farewell Creative Charms BLOG HOP

I know you are here for the SECRET WORD for the Blog HOP. But first let me say a few words that I would like to say to Creative Charms.

I cant hardly believe it's time to move on from my position as one of the Design Team for Creative Charms. My 6 month term has been wonderful and feels like it was just yesterday. Wow! It has been really fun and was an amazing opportunity to get to be a part of this wonderful company and team. It is one of the best company to work for.

Thank you CC for giving me this opportunity. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your team for 6 months. I want to give a BIG, HUGE CONGRATS to the new girls coming in. You are gonna have a blast working for this company. They are just the best.

I have put together a quick review of some of my favorite projects I was able to create during my term as a DT. I will miss having assignments and due dates but I know I will continue to create with CC products cuz they are just too fun. So hope you enjoy my little show and tell.

Ok, now on to what you really came here for. You have until MONDAY to send the correct phrase to Midori ( I know I didn't give much info on this but the GRAND PRIZE is a KIT & DEAL OF THE MONTH. Whew! What an awesome prize.

But in order to get the correct phrase, make sure you head to Creative Charms main blog first and follow the directions and head to the DT blogs in order so you will have the correct phrase.

So if you have been doing it correctly, then you should have just been on Jennifer H.'s Blog and your are ready for mine, then here we go!

And my secret word is ON.

Now you need to head to Lisa Dorsey's Blog for the next word.
Good luck everyone!

Your Scrapbook Stash *Fancy Pants To the Moon*

I want to be honest about this month's DT Kit. I am not a Fancy Pants kinda gal, so I admit I was really nervous getting this line. BUT, and that is a big but...I really had a great time working with it. This month we were challenge to only work with pattern paper and to try to not put too much embellishments. They wanted us to use just paper as much as possible.

It was really a challenge to only work with paper and the line, but gave me a chance to work with old pictures of my little boy. Which I am always preaching to begin with, you know how I always tell you guys to scrap your old pictures as much as you can. So here's what I came up with.

Disney Space Mountain

Circus Fun

A very simple card using only paper.

You Are Out of this World

Another very simple card using only FP pattern paper

For You
I really had a great time working with FP To the Moon. Although I was scared and nervous it turned out to be great. Besides the fact that I was challenged to only using pattern paper, I was also challenged using a line I am not use to. But that is a part of being in a DT. You are constantly trying new things. Although my LO's are a bit busy this time around and then my cards are super simple I think it is something you guys can relate to and would hopefully get encourage to try yourself.

Thank you for passing by and hope you guys get to play with your old pictures and try a new line you might be afraid to use. I have tons more products left over so I am planning on creating more projects. I was also sent some Teresa Collins Posh so I might get some of that stuff done too. YSS is sponsoring a Sketch site next month so keep a look out for that.

Take advantage of the GREAT SALE we are having at the YSS store. There are tons of products up for grabs due to the great amount of new stuff coming to the store. Also if you shop with us this month we have a new Coupon Code just use April20 and you will save 20% off your entire purchase of all sale, new and pre-order items.

Have fun shopping girls.

I was lucky enough to work with the Kit of the Month and will be posting my work as soon as I post it on the CC blog. There's ton of products in there so don't forget to get yours before they are all gone.

And lastly we will be having a Farewell Blog Hop for the CC DT so dont forget to check that out. It is happening at the end of the month and there will be a great prize giveaway so that is a bonus. Unfortunately this is the last month term for me as a DT so I am wishing all the new DT members good luck. This is such an awesome company to work with and Midori is such a great DT coordinator.

Have a great day.
