Meet ACOT's May Featured Guest!

"Em" aka: Emarie803

Each month ACOT features a member of our community who brings life to the Message Board and brilliance to the Gallery!

Meet this month's featured Guest "Emarie803"

How did you find A Cherry on Top?

I needed specific stickers for a page I was doing from our Vegas trip and the LSS didn't have anything close. So I hit the internet, and got sucked into the shop here!

How long have you been a part of the ACOT community?

I started posting on the message board Sept 2005 for the fall crop. I was welcomed by a lot of people and stuck around after the crop to see what it was all about ( I was a message board virgin ). Went missing for awhile because life got really hectic, came back in 2007, and have been here ever since!

What inspires you?

I have found that my inspiration changes daily. Sometimes I am inspired by textures, sometimes by colors. Sometimes it is by an event or a feeling. I have a notebook that I fill with ideas-color combos, patterns, ads that would make good LOs, etc. When I get stumped (or my mojo goes on a long vacation without me...), I flip through my book or the gallery here.

Click HERE to view the entire interview!

Congrats Em!

Are You A Lucky Cherry?

Sus is at it again! RAK's and valuable ACOT Points sprinkled here and there just for having fun on our Message Board.

Click HERE for more information!

But you'll have to stick around to find up what Sus is REALLY up to!

Don't you just love suspense?
