Getting to Know Me

TWO BLOG POSTS IN ONE DAY!  A NEW RECORD FOR ME!  SCROLL DOWN TO THE NEXT POST TO SEE WHERE I'M GUEST DESIGNING IN MARCH.

Welcome to our Special Edition blog hop for Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  The purpose of this hop is for everyone (design team members and fans of CKC) to get to know each other better.  Sure, you can click on my little bio on the side, but here's a chance to get to know the little ins and outs about Lynnette.

In order to get us started, Rebecca (one of our CKC organizers) provided us with these great journaling sheets courtesy of Christie Zimmer from her blog, graceisoverrated.com.  We were to fill out the sheets and be inspired by our responses to create something...anything...to help you all get to know us better.

So, here the sheet I completed:

 

I chose to focus in on the section of the sheet that highlights our "Bests".  It seemed like light and interesting things that you may not necessarily know about me unless you specifically asked.  As for how I turned this into a project?  Well, I've been creating a ton of layouts for CKC and the Layout A Day challenge, so I decided to take a different approach.  As I was cleaning up the wreckage in my craft room due to the flurry of activity I noticed this:

I immediately thought it would make an interesting mini book of sorts for all the "Best" answers from my journaling sheet.  So, with scraps of Echo Park's, "Hello Summer" kit in hand, I started transforming this cardboard ribbon spool into a helix of memories.  Here's my result:


Let the good times roll!  Here's what's inside:

  

It was a little tricky to photograph, but here's my best attempt to show you my "Bests":

Things that make me happy!






Wow!  That was so much fun!  Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a bit better.  Be sure to hop on over to all of our participating design team members to get the inside scoop on them.  The hopping "road map" is listed below.

  4. I LOVE your mini album. Such a wonderfully unique idea! Disney is a wonderful cruise to take and, NO, they most definitely would NOT let that happen. Hope you are enjoying yourself!

  7. Hi Lynnette - Wow!! Such an awesomely creative project! I love how you shared things about you that people wouldn't normally know. It was so nice to learn a little about you! (Also, I wish I lived close to a Crayola Factory.)
