What is your favorite craft item/tool? My Circuit Expression
What is your favorite paper line? DCWV, I’ve never bought any online so I’m sure over time that may change.
What is your favorite color? Oh I guess if I had to choose it would be shades of Brown & Olive. My wardrobe is shades of brown, olive and black. I definitely need a wardrobe makeover.
How is your craft room decorated? Ha I’m a Twilight Fan I have framed Eclipse pictures and my favorite straw hats on my walls. Oh and my room & wall unit is painted in shades of brown.
Are you an animal person? LOL a huge Yes! We have 2 cats and 3 dogs Moses a fawn 14 yr old pug, Elvis a black 4yr old pug and Ryder a 4 yr old Basset Hound.
Do they have a place in your craft room? I don’t usually let them in, because it’s a small room and they love to camp out by my feet. If I’m coloring an image I do it in the living room so they can be beside me.
Favorite Disney movie? Wow that’s too hard to choose, I like so many of them I couldn't pick just one.
Favorite music? Country is what I listen to most, but I love all kinds of music. Classical, Top 40, Tejano. It just depends what mood I’m in. Right now my favorite cd is Twilight soundtrack.
Beach or snow vacation? Definitely the Beach! I love Saint Simon’s Island and their beautiful beaches off the Coast of Georgia .
Sweet or savory snacks? I’d say Sweet, through I try not to keep any in the house except for a few bars of chocolate, just in case a craving hits.
Now, let's get scrappin'!! =)

Above: My cat George hiding amonst my scrap papers. (just gotta smile at that!)
What is your favorite craft medium? Digital images! I love all things crafty but digital images have completly changed my whole way of crafting. I am never bored or run out of ideas now.
What is your favorite scrap item/tool? That changes a lot but right now its a new craft knife I just got that fits around your finger. I had so much trouble controlling my other pen shaped ones and this one is a breeze, I love it.
What is your favorite paper line/company? I am not reallly dedicated to a certain company, I just find papers I like and buy them. But I guess my favorite papers I have ever gotten were from Club Scrap and they were designed by Michael Strong, who I am a huge fan of. I won them from his blog and I have only used them once, lol, I have threatened to frame them because they are so gorgeous and I dont want to use them up.
What is your favorite color(s)? Pink is my favorite, but I love green almost as much.
How do you have your scraproom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc. haphazard, lol. Its an ongoing process. I just got a dedicated craftroom about a year ago. Before that it was whereever I could set a table up long enough to work on a project. My son left for the army last June and I took over his room so its still not like I want it but its all mine and that wonderful.
Are you an animal person? Most definetly! Do they have a place in your scraproom? As you can see from my photo, my cat George fits right in. If I am in my craftroom he is too. In fact he spends more time in here than I do, he likes to sleep in here on my footstool when I am not in here.
What is your favorite Disney movie? Aladdin Do you watch TV/Movies while working? No tv in my craftroom. I like music when I am crafting. Do you get your inspiration from them? I draw inspiration from commercials. You know they are all about color and design and I will often see a color combo or they way they have something laid out and go oh hey I could add that to a card.
Sweet or Savory snacks? Combo, my fav right now is a combo of sesame sticks and yogurt raisins.
Scary or Romantic movies? Romantic comedy is my favorite kind of movies.
Beach or Snow vacations? I dont like the cold and I burn really easily. So if I am at a beach I have to sit with a blanket around me, way fun, lol. I like the country, so lakes, picnics, lots of trees and shade.
Thanks again, Christina! Hope you are all up for this awesome challenge. Remember, the winner gets a chance to be guest designer for an upcoming challenge, and if you are chosen as featured artist, you win 2 free Doodle Palace images.

The Design Team Princesses have been hard at work with our 2 newest images Muddy Buddy and Summertime Treats. Muddy buddy can be either a bear or a puppy, didn't really think about it but one of our talented ladies did him as a puppy and he looks just like one!
These images this week were inspired by my dogs playing in the mud after getting new grass in the yard this past weekend and my watering it in left large mud puddles for them to dig and splash in. Summertime Treats was inspired by my 2 year old nephew Maverick having his hands full of picnic goodies and the ice cream running down his arms and dripping on the ground. Please take a moment to scroll through the wonderful creations by our Design Team. Enjoy and I hope they bring you inspiration!!
used SummerTime Treast for her creation this week. She also entered this cute inviation in our last challenge hosted by Annmaree! What a cute invite to a backyard bbq or picnic!! Thanks, Annette!
Joyleen Dianne Co Lim

Robin Rawlinsturned her SummerTime Treats bear into a Girl!! Love the pretty Pink Bow! Also really love the way she was colored to look fuzzy. Don't you just want to touch her? Great job Robin!
Ruth used both images this week! Look at that Mucky Puppy!! Love the papers and the muddy doggie!! So Cute! Also, what a great Tag Book with SummerTime Treats! Love the faux stitching! This would make a great notepad, mini scrapbook, etc. SUPER!
Stacie DeBurger used the perfect sentiment on her Muddy Buddy creation! Carefee & Fun! Just like someone playing in the mud! So Cute, Thanks Stacie!!

This week our Guest Designer is Daisychain! She has chosen to create a RECIPE Challenge for us this week! Recipe: 3 Buttons; 2 Papers; 1 Ribbon. Take a look at the SUPER CUTE example card!! This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!!!
Daisychain, aka Christine, has provided us with some "Get To Know You" questionnaire answers so let's take a moment to meet Christine!
What is your favorite craft medium? Watercolour pencils. I find I can control them better than inks or paints, and I don't make such a mess.
What is your favorite scrap item/tool? Without a doubt my Cuttlebug and Wizard Nestabilities. I don't know how I managed before I got them.
What is your favorite paper line/company? I don't have a favourite as such, it depends what catches my eye. I do, however, use quite a few freebie downloads as I'm on a very tight budget. I like Montis Pixel Playground, Joni Gray and Summertime Designs. (I have used Montis Pixel Playground papers on my sample card).
What is your favorite color(s)? I love the soft look of pastels and use them a lot but I also like to use black & white, sometimes with a shock of bright colour thrown in. I'm a typical Gemini so I tend to like opposite looks depending on my mood.
How do you have your scrapboom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc. My craft room is the second largest bedroom in the house and is decorated in 'tropical' colours. The walls are lime green and curtains are lime, orange & yellow. The furniture is a mix of pine & beech. Sometimes, when the weather is good, it even feels tropical.
Are you an animal person? Do they have a place in your scraproom? I'm definately an animal person who has had animals all my life. Until recently I had 2 cats and a dog. Unfortunately this year I lost both of my gorgeous cats, they were 20yrs and 19yrs old. I am just getting used to them not being here. The dog is always in the craft room or at the top of the stairs when I am crafting.
What is your favorite Disney movie? Do you watch TV/Movies while working? Do you get your inspiration from them? I always liked the Disney films that had a young Hayley Mills in, good family films. The only time I watch TV while working is when I am colouring in images downstairs. I tend to listen to the radio in my craft room. I don't think I get inspiration from them for my cards.
Sweet or Savory snacks? Chocolate and more chocolate!
Scary or Romantic movies? Romantic. My favourite is 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' and anything else with Alan Rickman in. I also like to watch family type films like 'Nanny McPhee' and the old 'Ealing Comedys'.
Beach or Snow vacations? I live 10 minutes walk from the beach but tend to go there mainly in the winter. I prefer to spend summer in the countryside. I can't stand the cold snow, I prefer to be warm.
Favorite type of music? Rock music (big 'Queen' fan), Classical and Country
Thanks Christine for a wonderful challenge!! Let's get busy with our cards!!! YAY!!
