All About Me Blog Hop!

**Eek! I forgot to mention the dates of the Blog Hop!  The DT blog hop is from November 4 - November 6.  I'm extending it one more day and will draw a winner of the prize on Sunday, November 8th!**

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my blog!  I am so excited to have our first Design Team blog hop for All About Me.  Getting to know the DT is  a goal of this hop so I hope you have  enjoyed learning more about these talented ladies!  If you are just starting at my blog, make sure you head to the AAM blog to start at the beginning!

The theme for our hop is FREE to be ME!  Our goal at All About Me is to give you freedom to not only BE yourself but to also SCRAP about yourself!  Leave your legacy using your hobby and have FUN!  I love to journal but always get so board using a traditional journal so I resorted to doing layout journaling!  To use my creativity in conjunction with my therapy is amazing.

Our current challenge at All About Me is "I just can't live without...".  when I thought about what I wanted to do with this, I could think of some more serious topics like God, water, oxygen... but I wanted to have a little bit of fun!



I LOVE Starbucks coffee!!!  And if it ever went away, I'm sure I would be fine but that doesn't mean I won't hyperventilate just a little bit!

Lined and patterned paper - Scenic Route
Paper strips used for journaling - Core'dinations  (I used this paper through my dymo labeller and then sanded over the the raised letters.)
Heart pin - Fancy Pants
Flower - Making Memories
Pearls - Kaisercraft
Music paper, doily and marble - stash
Glitter chipboard letters - Bo Bunny??? I can't remember!

{Journaling reads:}
"What would I do without my Starbucks. Not only is the coffee yum but I love the way they see it."

I always love to read those little snippets on the back of my coffee cup!

Alright.. now onto the rest of this fun post!  As part of the Blog Hop, the DT has been asked to do a lil questionnaire.  Just an FYI.. you may need to know some of this stuff for a chance to get an extra entry into the November prize of the month on the main AAM blog!
