Guest Designer: Laurel Seabrook + Giveaway

Hi everyone, it's Laurel Seabrook and I am so excited to be guest designing here on the Doodlebug blog.  I was given the Sugar & Spice Collection to play with and I LOVE this collection!  The prints, patterns and colors are so fun to play with.  I also love that the back sides of the papers can be used for little girls as well.
I love going to garage sales to find things that I can upcycle inexpensively to give as gifts.  A friend of mine has just had a baby girl so I have created a collection of nursery decor items for you today. 
For all projects I base-coated them first in white paint and then went to work altering them.
First up, I have had this frame for awhile now and this was the perfect project for it. 

Next, my dad had some scrap wood blocks in his shop and he kindly sanded them for me.  I used 4 of them to spell out the word ''baby', the letters were cut with my Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook)




Finally, I have used the 6 x 6 pad to create some baby cards.
I want to thank Doodlebug for having me as a Guest, I really enjoyed working with these fabulous products!



GIVEAWAY: 
We love having great designers stop by and show us what inspiring things they can create with the Doodlebug products. We'd love to give away a box of assorted Doodlebug goodies to a lucky winner. It's simple, all you have to do is go check out Laurel Seabrook's blog, leave a comment there and then leave a comment here telling us you completed it. We'll announce a winner on Monday morning!!
