"Just A Smile Away"LO with Kaboodle Doodle's Challenge #75 - Cut Something with Scissors (My 1st DT Stint)

I'm so thrilled to share with you that I've been accepted at Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog as part of their Design Team.  Should I say . . . I'm finally a Designer?! lol  It's my 1st DT Stint!!  Yippee!! 

I have finally reached my last hopeful goal, as written at my blog's header which is "I-design".  Not easily be contented, I have yet to fulfill my duties and continue aiming for more . . . or what's next?  Let me see what else I could add to my goal . . . . but first I better do my duties and responsibilities. . . =)

My 1st DT work with Kaboodle Doodles is for their Challenge #75 -- cut out your image or something else with scissors or knife.  Winner to be randomly drawn and announced on Tues., July 19, 2011 (US timezone) with prize of 3 digi stamps of choice sponsored by Stamp Fairy.  Chosen Top 3 among the participants gets a blinkie as bragging rights for their blog.  Participants have until Sun., July 17, 2011 (US timezone) to upload their entries at Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

Kaboodle Doodle is encouraging scrappers to join in on their challenges aside from cardmakers.  That explains why they got me - a scrapper.  Thus, I'm making LOs for them.

Do visit Kaboodle Doodle's Challenge Blog for more inspiration from my fellow DT Members on Challenge #75.  Do enjoy the Challenge Blog with me . . . Hope to see yah around at Kaboodle!!

Here's my 1st LO with them:

Papers: KYT Manufacturing Corp., Alphabet: American Craft Thickers,  Digi Image: Stamp Fairy's "Thank You 5",  Chipboard Lamp Post: Dusty Attic, Marker: American Craft, Rhinestones Strass: Studio 18, Other: Pattern Papers.

I fussy Cut the Stamp Fairy's "Thank You 5" digital image and fussy cut the roses on the pattern paper.  Had both of them matted and fussy cut again.  Popped up the edges of the fussy cut roses facing the photo at the center.  Also, popped up the Stamp Fairy & my photo at center with foam squares for dimension. Drawn on the plain lamp post chipboard.  Title of the LO is a title of a song made famous and composed by a local Filipino band named Shamrock.
