I hope you all are enjoying this Holiday season! I know I am loving spending it with my family. I am loving seeing the excitement on my kids faces this time of year!
As I have taken off the last few months to spend with my family, I have come to the conclusion that they need me more than I ever knew. We have turned off our TV and have spent much more time as a family and have really done some fun things together. It has made me realize how fast my kids are growing up especially my baby who is already 7 months old. I want to be able to look back and know that I did everything I could to let my kids know that I love them. So, what it boils down to is letting go of Simply Obsessed. It has been a very hard decision but one that I know is right. I need to raise my 6 kids right now and help them become all that they can be! I have LOVED every minute of owning SO and getting to know some of you. I have enjoyed being able to give you the best of the scrapbooking world through my kits for the past 1.5 years.
Simply Obsessed will be dissolved! All product will be priced at close out prices through out the next month or so depending on how fast it sells. Each week will be more discounted then the one previous but don't wait because all the good product will go quickly! Right now everything is 30% off. Think Christmas presents or future gifts with the great prices! I will try to get everything shipped out as quickly as I can. Please also note that some product might be sell out quickly and might not be in stock even though it will let you check out with it. I will just refund you the difference if that happens. Thank you for your understanding!
Thank you all for your friendship and business!

I loved the Cambridge line because it was just PERFECT for my photos from England. Since I went to school there and visit friends a couple times a year I have a lot of photos. In this layout I used a few transparencies of London that I had in my stash. The transparency on the bottom I melted it slightly with the heat gun to give it some character. I used the packaging for the Bo-Bunny zipper embellishment to make the white tab with the date on it.
I never use transparencies nor my alcohol inks I just dont know how to use them. I wanted to try something different so I dug them out of my stash. First I cut out the transparency then I dabbed on the alcohol inks. I then melted the transparency with the heat gun, totally melting it through in two spots. It was really hard to get a good picture of layout and I really want you to be able to see the texture. I alos used the rest of the Bo-Bunny packaging behind the transparency at the top. This turned out to be one of my all time favorite layouts.
inbetween the notebook papers.
Ok...so maybe not a "Designer"....but it is pretty close I think! My 2 Girls...Skye and Aubrie both FELL. IN. LOVE. I think I have to make another one so that I can give them both a "Juicy" handbag!
This kit is AWESOME!!!!! I hope you get yours before they sell out!

Another vacation layout from the Railroad Museum. Once again I used the packaging for my white title/journaling block. I cut the letters on my die-cut machine from the red patterned paper. I thought the zipper border looked really railroad track-ish (It's a word! LOL!) so it was perfect for this page. I turned the + sign a bit and made it look like a Railroad Crossing Symbol.
The Fleur De Lis was a perfect accent for my layout about the Superbowl game played by the New Orleans Saints. And of course this event had to be documented! It was the first time in 14 years of marriage that my husband watched a football game! LOL! He said that he wanted to see what all the fuss was about! LOL!

And of course...you GOTTA love the deep hues for September "Back to school" days! Here is my son's favorite saying..."1st, 2nd, 3rd, elementary NERD!" I though it only fitting to include that as the title of this layout of him in second grade...an elementary NERD! LOL....I used this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers to create this layout....Simply Obsessed is sponsoring the prize this month...Go check it out!!!
And, with the seasons changing and the cooler weather approaching, I was compelled to scrap about the seasons...but did not wan the typical "seasons change" layout. So, I did this layout with my family photo. Winter, Summer, Spring, and Fall, A Family is still family...through it all.
And of course, the deep green and the deep red made me LONG for Christmas time, so I decided to use Heather's MAGNIFICENT flower to create my Very First Christmas card for the year! It is simple, because I did not want to detract from the beauty of that flower! Gorgeous isn't it???? It comes in your kit, too!!!!
Ok...so, I obviously am in LOVE with this kit, and could whip out a few more layouts with my left overs. I would LOVE to see what you create with your kit!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work. Have a Magnificent Day!
