Top 10 Blog Hop | 2014

Welcome to the Top 10 Blog Hop! Now, before we get started, I am going to warn you. I have more than a top 10. I have chosen my top 17! I didn't plan on 17, but when I started writing this post and then went back to count how many I had, there were 17. And ,since this is "17turtles", I decided why not have 17?! Don't you agree???

I must say, 2014 has been a great year! A year full of so many awesome opportunities and new adventures for me. I was blessed to design for some amazing manufacturers including Elle's Studio, Pebbles Inc, SRM Stickers, BoBunny, and 3 Birds Design.

(Keep going. There is a AWESOME GIVEAWAY at the end!!!)

I started off in January of 2014 as a new member of the Design Team for Elle's Studio. One of my favorite projects that I created for Elle's Studio was this one about being grateful for my husband! He is ALWAYS there for me and no words can fully describe how grateful and blessed I am that he is my husband and best friend!

I was also selected to be a part of the first ever 3 Birds Studio Design Team as well as their Design Team and Social Media Coordinator. I really enjoyed working with everyone in "the nest" at 3 Birds as well as the awesome designers on the team! Here are a few of my favorite 3 Birds projects.

One thing that 3 Birds introduced me to, that I have fallen in love with, is quilling! These are a couple of my favorite quilled projects.

I was also a member of the SRM Stickers Design Team and one of the new products that they introduced in 2014 was adhesive vinyl. I love stickers, so this was really just one more way for me to play with them!  I created several projects for SRM Stickers using their adhesive vinyl and my Silhouette Camhere are a few of my favorites:
