American Crafts Farewell Blog Hop

 If you landed here from  Leah Farquharson blog welcome! If you're one of my blog reader hey, howdy, hey! If you happened here by chance well take a minute to read this post then go back and start the hop at the American Crafts  Blog. Some of the designers are doing giveaways so make sure you check all the blogs out! Here are the fabulous ladies I got to be on the AC team with!

I feel so lucky to have worked with these amazing ladies(some who I was just like nu-huh seriously wow!and now she's my friend OMG! I also got to meet Shimelle in person this summer too which was AWESOME! she is such a sweetheart!). 

Designing with American Crafts was a dream come true I compare it to that nerdy girl getting asked to the prom by the high school football team quarterback it's one of those things I never thought would happen to me and it did ,it was awesome! I love AC's products and had so much fun creating with them every month. But now it's time for change and change is good right? mix it up a bit and see what next adventure is out there for me. 

Here are a few of my favorites that I created from this past year for AC. 
(my first cover)

 (this was HSN & published with Scrapbooks Etc.)


(published with Scrapbook Trends)




If you'd like a chance to win some goodies that I have in my American Crafts stash leave a comment here by Tuesday September 4th @ 12:30pm saying whatever you like and I will draw a winner. Please make sure you leave a way for me to get in contact with you or come back Tuesday afternoon to see if your the winner. Thanks! 

Now that you've seen my favs, you've read my farewell post, I guess you're ready to hop along right?  Well then You'll be heading to the super fab Melissa Manns Blog
