Instead of using three 2"x 3" pictures, she used one large image of Suzie Q.  Suemo also traded in some of the speech bubbles for cute doggy themed embellishments.  We love her creativity!  

Congrats Suemo and special thanks to all who shared their creations!  Enjoy your extra A Cherry On Top Points!

Help Us Welcome This Month's Guest Craft Designer!

Please help us welcome our Guest Designer for July 2015!

Screenname:  1scrappymom

First name: Shannon

Favorite Color: yellow

My craft supply 'must have':  I am a sucker for patterned paper!!  I also think I might be the only person left in the world that still uses adhesive squares as my go-to adhesive. 

I mostly create: 2 page layouts – mostly theme-park and travel-related

Guilty pleasure:   Going on scrapbook retreats or shopping trips with friends. I am also a huge fan of Orange is the New Black.

BIO:   My name is Shannon Blinn.  I have been married to my best friend, Shane, for nearly 23 years now.  We have two children.  Bailee is our daughter and she is 19.  Logan is our son and he is 13.  

We have FOUR dogs.  We normally only have two beagles at a time, but this year we decided to look into rescue and now have two, very, large, ornery lab-mix puppies (are they still puppies if they are over 50 pounds??).  I am a licensed, master-level social worker by profession.  Although my passion is in helping children and families, I also have an artistic side and love to use that to document the stories of my own life and the lives of my family.  

products used:
 summer vibes simple stories

Layout: 'Good Dog'

'We rescued two lab mix puppies in February.  They were so little! They are now well over fifty pounds each!'
