Best dog days of summer images
Please give Cindy's Guest Designer, Doreen Vazquez, a warm welcome! 

Hi there! My name is Doreen. I go by Doreena online as sort of shout-out to my hubby who likes to call me Doreena. 

... I've been scrapping for approximately 20 years and though I have scrapped and still scrap mainly 12x12s I recently started dabbling in Travelers Notebooks, Pocket Pages, and Project Life; in fact this is the first year I've attempted Project Life and let me tell's been a learning process!
I'm excited to be a Guest Designer for Counterfeit Kit Challenges and look forward to what the month brings us!
