Let's Dot n Go - Giveaway/RAK

Wow!  I'm back.  I inadvertently took a leave of absence from blogging.  Life got busy in a good way.  Nevertheless it's onward I go.  I did get a chance to do a classic Debby's Dare Demo. 

Glue Dots® Adhesives' Dot 'n Roll.  Have you seen it?  Have you tried it?  Well, I'm in love with mine.  I have used (and still do) my Glue Dots® Adhesives roll for embellishments, ribbon, and other things on my layouts.  I didn't really use them for the paper or photos UNTIL I purchased Glue Dots® Adhesives Dot 'n Roll.  They are awesome.  Zip, Zip and my paper is not going to move.  LOL  Glue Dots® Adhesives has removable glue dots to use while you are designing the page. 

Here is my Debby's Dare Demo working on the layout below with Glue Dots® Adhesives

The Story
The photo is of two of my favorite people.  Looking back when Little Honey was born it seems amazing that she has grown and learned so much.

The Layout

What I Learned
  • I love being inspired by my internet friends.  This is a loose interpretation of a sketch from Connie Mercer from Crafty Goodies blog
  • I'm still in love with Graphic 45!  This is from their newest line Magic of OZ.  I didn't think I was going to like their chipboard pieces.  They switched from cardstock quality die cuts to the chipboard.  I was glad it was not too thick and they don't have the "shiny" coating on them so I can still ink them up and alter them.
  • I'm in love with Scrap FX Wordlets I used for my title.  They have some beautiful creations.  The fun was seeing the detailed design with the "M." 
  • I used my Tim Holtz's Distress Stains on "Magic."  I like the effect of combining Vintage Photo with Broken China.
  • Of course I can't get enough of cutting.  Dorthy and the compass behind her are actually part of G45's paper.  How can you resist not cutting it out? LOL
  • Grungeboard better not go out of style!  I have a ton of Grungeboard from the "early" years.  The flourishes are from that collection.
  • This layout is made totally using Glue Dots® Adhesives Memory Book, Mini, and Pop Up.  The Mini did a great job on my title and my Grungeboard.  Craft was used on everything else except the Dorthy tag which I used Pop Ups.  This layout is not going to "fall" apart in the future (yes, I've had that experience).
How can I tell you how great Glue Dots® Adhesives are without letting you try it.  From my personal stash I'm giving away one Craft Dot n Go Mini in the Dispenser.  Leave a comment and I'll use Random.org to pick one winner.  I'll announce a winner Wednesday.  No following or sharing required.  If you know of someone you think would like to give it a go feel free to send them this way.  Thanks

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
