Guest Designer, Shanon!

It's my day as a guest designer at Jaded Blossom! 
My name is Shanon Cimbura and my blog is  
I am a West Coast girl transplanted in the south in Lumber Bridge, NC with my family.  
I am a paper crafter, and I'm pleased to present my project:
Wine-O'clock Scrapbook Spread!

My husband and I love wine.  We love to go to a wine shop and read all the labels and pick a bottle to enjoy with dinner.  Our favorite activity is what we call "porch sittin'" where we sit on our porch, enjoy dinner and a bottle of wine, reminisce and talk about the future, solve the worlds problems, or just enjoy the birds and sounds of our neighborhood... Porch sittin' is an important part of our 21 year marriage, therefore I wanted to document this in our scrapbook.  
So when I saw the Wine-O'Clock set from 
I knew it was perfect for the layout I had planned.

I Love You More Than Wine 
Keep Calm and Drink Wine
You had me at Merlot
A glass of wine counts as a serving of fruit
May your wine glass always be half full

Let me gush a bit and say that I always thought that ink was the important factor in getting great stamped images!  While ink is important, quality stamps are by far the most important factor and Jaded Blossom stamps are incredible!  The impression they make is perfect the first time and they are easy to clean and store.
I loved the fun sayings and look forward to future projects using
JB stamps!
