Welcome to DAY 5 of  The 12 Days of Doodlebug


I am so excited about this 12 day series that I am doing here on my blog – I LOVE DOODLEBUG and I have been a user and collector for the past 15 years!! Anything made by them delights and excites me – I love their bright, happy colors and incredibly cute icons and borders they make!! I thought doing this series would be a perfect way for me to lead up to and celebrate my birthday with you – There will be prizes – more on that at the end!!!

I am going to keep things really simple today since it is Easter weekend!

Today I made a page topper for a scrapbook page – I scrapbook in 8 1/2 by 11 so this will be a perfect top to my Easter scrapbook page!!

As always, please click on the picture to get a bigger, better view of this!!!


I am linking this cuteness up over at The Friday Mashup! – FM203 “Easter Critters”

I made this using the Super Cute and Fun Easter Parade collection from Doodlebug!!


The link I provided you shows all the fun things this collection comes with!! Hope you will check it out – This collection is available right now! It comes all in one Essentials kit (see pic below)!

I used two colors of Doodlebug cardstock and layered one of the rectangles for this sheet:


I used the stickers from this icon sheet – they are the same size as the ones in the rectangle – so I mounted them with double stick mounting squares and popped them up!

I enjoyed making this and look forward to using it on a future scrapbook page – I think it looks cute here and could go on a mantel as decor also!!! Just sayin’!! =]

As a bonus to this event – I am giving away Prizes/Gifts to Celebrate My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

The Prizes I will be giving away are pictured here –

A Corner Chomper


a $25 gift certificate to any store (on-line or walk-in)


 This  Stampin’ Up! stamp set

My Sweet, super amazing friend, Cynthea Sandoval, who is the creator of Doodlebug Designs sent me a prize of Doodlebug products to give to one of you lucky winners!!! So super excited and I appreciate her support so much!!!

It is $40 worth of items from this Birthday collection:


Here’s how you can win: Visit my blog and comment on as many of my Doodlebug posts as you can/want!! 1 comment per person per post!  The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win!  I will use Random.org to determine the lucky winners!!

In case you were wondering how to get your hands on some Doodlebug cuteness  – I wanted to mention that there are some on-line stores that I shop at to find Doodlebug Design items!

I shop at A Cherry on Top and Scrapbook.com and Paper Issues!

If you shop at A Cherry on Top and they asked who referred you – I would love it if you put my name down – you earn points for people referred to them!! I love this site because they get the NEW stuff FAST and then you can get it!!! **grin**  Also Scrapbook.com is offering  free shipping after $50 orders (til April 5th) And Paper Issues carries a lot of the smaller items of Doodlebug – they don’t carry a lot of 12 by 12 stuff!! They do package things up pretty and are fun to shop with!!!  Happy shopping!!!!

Hope you have a bright, sunny and happy  Easter weekend!!!

    ACK! Those little animals are super-duper extraordinarily cute! They’re little smiles…eeeee (yes, I’m squealing *grin*). Love what you’re doing with these showcases, my sweet friend! Win-win in every direction: you’re making beautiful things to share, which makes you happy; we get to relish in seeing those beautiful things, which makes us happy; and Doodlebug is receiving some amazing ‘press’, which undoubtedly makes them happy! Don’t you love when the ‘math’ adds up perfectly!
