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!

All you have to do is complete 1 layout from sketches 119-120-121-122-123 to be in the running for a prize from SO! Be sure to link your LO up at Creative Scrappers! Good Luck!
Your challenge is to:
Use an actual Advertising Slogan as the title of your layout
Super simple, right??? YES! And here is my example..."Born to Ride"...it is the slogan that Harley Davidson Motorcycles uses to advertise their bikes. This is my Big Brother doing a super sensational job of posing on his Bike for me! LOL
I can't wait to see what advertisements you all decide to use!!! Make sure you load your layout nto the Simply Obsessed Gallery and link it to my thread in the DT DAres...and you will be entered into a RAK Drawing at the end of the month!
My first page, We've Got Spirit, is the Pink Paisley School Days and Goody 2 Shoes papers. Fun! I love all the shades of green. You can scrap anything with these papers. I also used some of the Bo Bunny Brads and that cute cute zippers trip. I also used one of those cute Jillybean Soup stickers. From my stash I had to use some AC thickers and some Cosmo Cricket and Making Memory journaling stickers.
My next page was so much fun. I loved digging back into all of Justin's old school pictures. The boy is 20 years old now. He hasn't been that small in a long time. I don't know why the color is so washed out in the first picture, it sure doesn't show how warm the tones are. In this page I used both the Bo Bunny and the Pink Paisley papers. I alos used a ton of the add-on Pink Paisley rub-ons. I love them, they rub off so easily. Not scary to use at all. I am also so in love with those gorgeous Bo Bunny Brads. I want some more of them! They are just gorgeous. The pink paisley metal badges also went along great in the page.
And my last page is of my dear husband. I just love this BoBunny paper. It's so manly. The colors are gorgeous. I used Heather's gorgeous zipper flower! She made those, isn't that the cutest thing!? I used all of my Jolee Fleur de lis, my Pink Paisley flip notes, a pink paisley metal badge, the Jilly Bean Soup letter stickers, the Basic Grey letter stickers, those gorgeous add-on ribbons and 1 of the add-on Pink Paisley rub-ons. Oh! And I also use some of the Pink Paisley canvas borders. Heather had SO many great add-ons with this kit! I loved it all.
Are you ready?
So without further ado....
*drum roll please*
Tami aka Momawhite99!!!!!
Tami is truly a wonderful artist and such a uplifting and nice person. She has been an inspiration to many of us scrappers and it is a privilege to have her work in the gallery and to hear her thought and comments on the message board. We wanted to get to know her better so Heather asked her a ton of questions. Here is what she said:
1. Where do you live? I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee aka the Volunteer State.
2. Do you have any kids? I am a Mom to 2 boys-well 3 if you count my husband who has major confusion sometimes about how old he is-LOL! My oldest is Bo he is 13 (wish we could just stop right here at this age) and then theres my youngest Tucker he is 9-he is the sweet/demon child-LOL! No girls here in the White house-maybe someday they will give me a granddaughter.
3 Do you have any pets? I personally do no have any pets but there is a bloodhound named Elsie that lives at our house-hehehe
4.What was the last book you read? The last book I read was probably Dick and Jane-BWAA HAA HAA. I really dont read anymore no time besides if I did then that would take away from my scrappin time.
5.Do you like to cook? I love to cook, love to watch the Food Network and love trying new recipes. But the catch is with me it has to be easy stuff-I hate taking FOREVER to make something and I dont care for the mess either-dumb I know! My fave thing to cook is anything for a crowd-we love having people over and feeding them for some reason that is very rewarding to my hubs and I.
6.What's your favorite food? My fave food is Mexican-my dad used to tease me and my mom that he wasnt my father becuz I loved to eat Mexican food so much-LOL!
7.Do you have brothers and sisters? I have one younger brother.
8. Which sport do you like? Okay so this is where I am supposed to say the nice mommy thing- "I love any sport that my child participates in" WHATEVER that just stresses me out-I truly enjoy watching College Football and my fave team is the Tn Volunteers-GO VOLS!!
9.Have you ever met a famous person? Oh Gosh I have met several famous people in my life. But here's a funny one-I met the man who is the look alike for Sam Elliott(he's a major hunk in my book) Well my girlfriend and I were at a cookout and he was there-so of course we had to go and fix our hair and makeup so we could go ask him for a picture. (This was several yrs ago BTW) So we did and he kindly took a picture with us and gave us each a kiss on the cheek. We were just giddy for a couple hours until someone fessed up and told us -he was just the look alike-UGH!
10.How do you spend your free time? Well my free time is spent scrappin-I waited til my boys were older before I got started scrappin so I have TONS of stuff to scrap.
11.What super-power would you most like to have, and why? The super power that I would like to have is to fly-there are so many places here in the US I would like to visit-but I hate driving. So flying would come in REAL handy for me!
I am a huge fan of Tami's work. It is just so beautiful and fun. She uses a ton of different techniques and products. e just know that you will all be very inspired by her work!
