Chicken Noodle Soup Time

Since many of us on the Doodle Dragon Studios Design Team are a little under the weather (including myself), I was inspired to make this... I feel better just looking at it!

Love the Target Dollar Section

This project is super simple and super cheap. I found this cute sparkle snowflake journal in the dollar section at Target! To spruce it up alittle, I tied ribbons on the coil and added one of my favorite images from Dustin Pike's/Doodle Dragon Studios new 100 Days of Christmas set with a glossy nose. My daughter loved it!

Counting Our Blessings & Box Tops

Once again, it's time for another Box Tops contest at our school. So this month we're..."Counting Our Blessings & Box Tops!" I thought Dustin Pike's/Doodle Dragon Studios juggling monkey would be perfect for this contest. This picture doesn't really show it, but he's 2 1/2" feet tall and the number are really fuchsia colored like Box Tops (not red). Silly camera. Next contest I'll be sure to make it bulletin board style so it stands out better.

Okay, it's bragging time. Our school totally rocks! So far this year we have earned $3636 with Box Tops! In addition, we won our local Macey's grocery store school competition AND we won our local Walmart school competition which means we won another 2000 Bonus Box Tops (worth $200.00) and a $100 gift card! Let's just say I'm one proud Box Tops lady! Thanks to Dustin, my contest flyers and bulletin boards are super cute and well branded!

DDS Challenge - Anything Goes!!!

It's time for another Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge! This challenge's theme is ANYTHING GOES! Really, you have absolutely no reason not to jump in and join the fun!

New to Doodle Dragons? (*gasp*) It's alright, we all have to start somewhere. Dustin Pike (aka Doodle Dragon Studios) is amazing! He has plenty of freebies on his site. So be sure to join our challenge!

Just pick a Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios image and create something...anything! Then post it to the Doodle Dragon Studios - Pike's Playground Challenge by Sunday, November 13th.

Remember me mentioning the M&M's long story last month? Well, here's the short story. This is the project I wanted to use them for. I FINALLY completed it today! The only problem is it took me SIX big bags of delicious M&M's to do it. I confess...I ate them all! I have a weakness for peanut M&M's. Okay fine...and candy. You see right through me! So if you need me, I'll be on my treadmill this month. :(
