The ScrapRoom Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!
Well this is my 3rd and final month as Guest Designer at The Scraproom and I would be sad, however, Tammy the owner has asked me to come on board TSR team and I am honored and overjoyed with excitement!!!  From Subscriber to Guest Designer and now I am on the Design Team, how awesome is that?
You want to know how excited I am?   Click on the link below:

Now that I have shared my AWESOME news with you, I want to share the projects I created this month using April's fabulous FOTM Kit:

Love, love love how well this collection matched up with this photo of my beautiful sister and my brother-in-law while vacationing in Hawaii a few years ago!
This layout was inspired by the TSR April sketch (Pagemaps) and all products on the page except for the enamel dots and Flair button are from the April kit.
American Crafts "Daydreamer"
"In Life There Are No Ordinary Moments"
I also used this collection to create a card with some of the scraps:
"Hi" Card

Now how about this next yummy collection?  One of my favorite manufacturers right now and I was so happy to find this bright, fun collection in this month's kit!
Simple Stories ~ A Charmed Life
"Lovin' My Life"
I also created a card using scraps from this collection:
"Thank You" Card

Lucky Starz is such a fun collection and perfect for this sweet photo of my super happy great-nephew, Isaiah!   This collection just screams HAPPY!
The Thickers also in this month's kit came as Here We Go, but I cut the w away from the e and turned it to make the word "ME!"
Bella Blvd ~ Lucky Starz
"Here Me Go!"
And last, this awesome boy collection! 
Fancy Pants ~ " Be Different"
"It's A Boyz Life"

Here is a look at April's fabuluos Flavor Of The Month Kit:

The ScrapRoom March Guest Designer!!!

Hey There!
This is my second month as Guest Designer for The ScrapRoom and I am loving the March Kits!!!
The ScrapRoom kits and add-ons are always packed with yummy goodies, and enjoyable to create with.  
If you have not visited The ScrapRoom, make sure you do before this month's kits are all gone!!!

Today I am sharing 4 layouts and 2 cards I created with the 
March Flavor of the Month Kit:

First, I created this layout using LilyBee's "We R Family".  
This is an awesome collection and I love the color palette and patterns in this collection:
"Good Times"

For this next layout, I used October Afternoon's "Snapshots" Collection.  What a super fun collection for scapping photos of my granddaughter and her cousin have a good time at the park!!!
'Big Fun"

My third layout was inspired by the TSR March Sketch from PageMaps and I used the
 "Styleboard" collection by Crate Paper, found in the kit:
"Year of the Horse"
Here is the sketch:

My fourth layout is a double page layout created for the Flavors of the Month Recipe Card using 
Basic Grey's lovely "Fresh Cut" Collection:
"Happiness Is..."

This card was also created using the BG "Fresh Cut" Collection:

October Afternoon's "Snapshots" Collection!!!
