CCDT New Year, New Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to the CCDT ( Design Team) New Year, New Team blog hop!  

No, I'm not on the team.  
I'm the lucky one that gets to lead these ladies and give them assignments for their monthly projects and basically learn from everything that they're creating.  They truly are amazing and I love working with them!  

One thing I asked of them to do was to give 5 fun facts about themselves.  
I can't ask that they do it and then NOT do it, so here are my fun facts.

1.  I cracked my youngest brothers head open.  Twice.  On the same rock.
2.  I can't roll my "r's".
3. I have the attention span of a turnip.
4.  I'm allergic to almonds and I found that out the hard way about 6 years ago.
5.  I'm absolutely OBSESSED with smutty TV shows like The Bachelor/ette, Vampire Diaries, and Dance Moms.


In honor of celebrating our new team, my crafty mojo finally decided to come back from a LONG vacation, drinking mojito's on the beach.  
(How kind of it!)


I was able to do a mini album for my dad of Neysa and her "Papa". :)  She ADORES her Papa, so I thought it'd be fitting since I had this "boyish" paper to use.

Cover/last page and how the album is essentially put together.

I mixed chipboard, acrylic, and canvas pages from a book I bought from Prima.  Using the My Mind's Eye "Dilly Dally" line, I cut out a bunch of stuff with my Silhouette Cameo to use in it.  

Here are a few pages from it:

I LOVE these 4x6ish little shaped dividers!  I am pretty sure I bought almost all of them in the Silhouette Online store!  I foresee using LOTS of these in the future.

I can't wait to give it to him! :)

Now, if you're going to continue hopping, you'll want to go to Jenni's blog and continue hopping!  
Please show some love to these amazing ladies.  They definitely deserve it!

I'm going to give a random commenter $5 in crop credit - SO, leave a comment and if you're not already, follow me!  I'll draw the winner on Monday, 1/14!
