3 Girl Jam Guest Designer!!!

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to have been asked to be a guest designer on 3 Girl Jam Challenge Blog, I just have to say, I love their product, the crinkled ribbon is my favorite, along with the Bow Maker and Vintage buttons..... Wow, don't want to get ahead of my self, I need to tell you a little bit about me; I started out scrapbooking in 2004 which spun into card making and have been loving every minute of it! I occasionally make some altered projects,  love making little boxes, oh, lets just face it, anything that has to do with paper, I just love!!  I started my blog on April 8th, 2010, have met so many wonderful people, designed for some amazing crafters and have made long lasting friendship that I hope will continue..... I would have never thought that I would have so much fun sharing my crafting ideas and learning from all of you! Just want to say thanks to 3 Girl Jam for the opportunity and thanks Jovan from Cards by Jovan for thinking about me, it's much appreciated!!

I will be sharing 3 projects that I have created using their ribbon (with that amazing Bow Maker) and Vintage buttons. I hope you will enjoy my creations, make sure you head over to their store and pick up some amazing crafting products!
