Guest Designer Friday - Shannon Myiow

Welcome to Guest Designer Friday
I have a wonderful Guest Designer to introduce you to . . .
Shannon Myiow
Shannon is sew very very very talented
and I know that you will appreciate her projects and talent as I have !!!!

Shannon's Bio: I have been scrap booking for about 12 years now and loving every minute of it. I recently took up photography to grow my scrap booking which is also why I started this blog. I want to share my ideas and get ideas from fellow scrap bookers just like me! I am happily married and mainly scrap my husband, our life together, and our friends.

and now to share her project with you . . .

11 years ago today we found each other. 
5 years ago today we started a life together.
 And today, I am still nuts about you!

I am so blessed this week for many reasons. I have a loving husband, great friends, and a second opportunity to be a guest designer! I would like to take the time to thank Lynne from Her Craftiness for allowing me to show my work on her blog.
To celebrate my anniversary I chose an old layout from our wedding album.

This is my favorite page out of the entire album. I saw a similar page in a Close To My Heart catalog and loved it.  I tweaked it a little to make it my own.  I love the black and white photo with the bright green and pink. I used my Close To My Heart ink and Stamps and a Cricut Cartridge to create this layout.  You will have to forgive me, it's been a long time and I don't remember all the details       :)

However, my second project is new just today so I remember everything!!

This is the anniversary card that I made for my husband. In my crafting circle I am kind of known for being untraditional when it comes to my paper choices.  I tend to mix designs and colors that must people would not.  I can't help it, it's who I am!  The paper I choose for this card is from the Recollections All Season paper pack. 

For my cute little squirrel I used my new favorite Cricut cartridge Create A Critter.

added some bling and I used my white pen to make my word pop. I really love the way this card turned out and I hope you do too!

Now for the fun part! BLOG CANDY!!
