Welcome! My blog is currently in the process of being set up. So please be sure to come back for more fun and beautiful inspirations.

I'm very excited to welcome you to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.
Even though I have been designing for UStamp for about 2 years, this is the first blog hop I have ever participated in and I'm very excited about it. If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Kirsten Brown's Matchbook mini scrapbook. Kirsten is an amazing designer full of fun and creative ideas. I love How she used the My Digital Studio (MDS) software from Stampin' Up to create the cover of her mini book.
If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.
I love creating things that are stamped, current and trendy. This is why I created this 2 page layout using a clean and simple approach by using clouds, banners with 3D embellishments.
As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!

Please leave a comment about my project to be entered for a chance to win a dynomite prize of 12 inches of ALL the BRAND NEW Stampin' Up! RIBBONS!! These NEW Ribbons will be available as part of the NEW Stampin' Up! 2012-2013 Catalog!!
