Days of December

So I have always wanted to do a days of December book and figured since I'm unable to make it to my craft room right now I will try to post each day my post here.

Here it goes...

December 1

I'm stuck in my bed resting since I had my knee surgery on Tuesday Nov. 26. I have been browsing Blitsy everyday trying to make a shopping list of craft supplies that I would love to have... I know Christmas is just around the corner but being unable to get to my crafty supplies is making my desire that much stronger.

I was gifted my new iPhone 5c from my husband so that is making my blogging so much easier. I love it!

So I'm also a part of a design team over on Down A Dirt Road Scrapbooking forum. I received a great kit for December that consisted of Bo Bunny Elf Magic and  Simple Stories 
I will let you see one of the great cards I created using the Simple Stories. I love how easy it was to create some great cards with this collection.
I added some jewels to this card front and Liquid Glass to the letters. I love how this card turned out. 

So here is my post for today until tomorow!

{Catching Up.... Day 1}

Well I have been designing for the Down A Dirt Road Scrapbooking Creative Team for 7 months now.... I completed my 6 month term and was asked if I would like to continue on with the Team. I jumped to say yes as it was so nice to pour my creativity into such a great team and it is local-ish to!

I realize that I have neglected my blogging and will be trying to keep up once I get caught up. We have so many great challenges and kits that we work with each month that it is time I start to share those with you all!

So let's go back to the beginning and I will share with you some of the great projects that I worked on...

For April I received Bo Bunny Timepiece collection with many extras. I had some input into what paper collections I like this month and I had bought a mini album that was part of the Bo Bunny line so it was my first choice in the paper collections.

When I bought the mini album it was one that I wanted to use for a memory album for my grandfather. He passed away when I was 8 and I don't have a lot of keepsakes from our time together and his life in general so I decided that it was important to start to document the memories I have to keep those so my children may one day get a little insight into my life and his as well. This was a very personal project for me and in trying to copy the photos for this album I have not yet added them yet...but like the album it is a precious reminded that time is necessary and not to be rushed...

To see more of this album check out my May Arts DT Call post.

Throughoutt the month the team members and I would post challenges and I wanted to share a few of them and my projects for them.
Jackie posted a challenge to celebrate the Pony Express...
 To celebrate the Pony Express I would like to see you create a layout or card containing an envelope and a stamp. The stamp can be just a piece of cardstock cut with "stamp" scissors.

Tracy posted a Creative Title Challenge.
This months Creative Titles challenge is to get your title from a song lyrics or a song title.

 Next Alicia posted a great Mix and Match challenge.
My challenge this week is a simple one. I want you to mix and match patterned papers from a minimum of 2 different companies...

We have more challenges that you can check out on the forum and participate in the current ones. I had a lot of fun in the month of April and it was one that had the Easter Mini Challenge too! I hope to see you stop by and say Hi over at the Down A Dirt Road Scrapbooking Forum!
