Keep In Touch.........................

......................February Guest Designer!!! I was honored by getting to be a guest designer for Kelly, the owner of Keep In Touch. She had me doing something a little special this month other than my typical cards. I had so much fun playing with the kit she sent, this one:

I will be doing a tutorial on how to make these easy but cute necklaces in the next week or so as well as showing more of what I made from the kit!!! But for now, enjoy!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
