It's time to move on to our New Challenge.

Here is the Prize you can win ...

Let's give a BIG Welcome to our Guest Designer Dori Shelton
Dori will be sharing her creations during the Month of October will all of us.

My name is Dori and began scrapbooking in 2003 while living in Okinawa during my husband’s deployment to Iraq. I was pregnant with my  second child, and it was just a great way for me to keep my mind off of many things that were stressing me out at the time! Gradually, I got more into card making and started my blog to share that creativity with others in hopes to inspire and teach others as well. I’ve also learned so much from the paper crafting community over the years. We are still a military family, we still move…all the time…and I still pack up all my craft stuff and unpack it every 2-3 years! Our 2 children in Okinawa turned into 3 children and now they are all a little older (16, 12 and 10) leaving me more time to craft which is great! But at the same time, I’m still a “school taxi, homework helping/suffering, laundry doing, lunch packing and baseball mom” So in other words, I can’t really remember the last time I was bored! 

I do still scrapbook; but I do that on a personal basis when I have time. I don’t blog or share them online, however.  I love my paper crafting hobby. It keeps me sane, it keeps my mind focused and it’s just for me. I love designing an idea in my head, sketching it out, and then pulling the materials from the shelves and then putting it all together!

Now let's see what Dori created to inspire you!
Dori did an amazing job coloring these lovely ladies with her Copic Markers!
Such a lovely layout also. Make sure you head over to her blog and leave her some love.

Now it's time for a little Inspiration from our Designers ...
