Announcement; Scrap N' Dipity

I am so happy to share that I have been asked to join the Design Team of Scrap N' Dipity!  There are so many adorable images that the only problem I have with the website is choosing which one to use! 
Our oldest son has moved back home for a short time and with him came his cat Betty.  We also had a cat named Mr. Kitty so it has been quite the job, full time I might add, to get these 2 beautiful creatures used to each other.  So for this reason I thought it was fitting to start my first Design Team Post with the image of the adorable cat! 
I was also trying to decide which medium I wanted to use and thought that since I'm new on the DT I should also try something new.  I had purchased some chalks some time ago and hadn't used them yet at all.  I went through 3 of the images before I settled on one that I thought did the kitty justice. 
With my failing memory I thought it would be a good idea to make up a notepad for myself where I could keep track of the different projects that I'm working on and when they are due.  I used a simple composition notebook and covered it with cardstock.  I also made a little pocket on the inside front cover in case I wanted to slip something in so I wouldn't have to go hunting for it.  I then used DCWV's The Tradewinds matstack to pretty up the front.  I made up some flowers using some of my hand punches with different shapes.  The leaves were also hand punched out of cardstock and The Tradewinds matstack again.  I used my Martha Stewart punch to get the letters for the front cover. 
This project came together very quickly and was so much fun to play around with the image.  I am looking forward to making many more adorable projects using the images over at Scrap N' Dipity.   Click here for Scrap N' Dipity website. Do yourself a favour and check the wonderful images that Alisha has to offer.  I bet you can't settle on just one!  Here is my project!  I hope you like it and as always, your comments are welcome!
