The Girl's Got Personality {CS #171}

It's Sunday, which means we've got a new sketch up at Creative Scrappers this morning!

I love circles--they always add a bit of fun and interest to a page design. Here's the page I made. I made this for Emily's August Challenge over at Sassafras Lass.  Emily's challenge is to use a mix of at least 3 different letters.

That's my best friend's daughter, Monica. She's a trip, and I thought the Sassafras Lass products were perfect to show off her fun personality!

Here are a few details. How I love those little monsters from the Monstrosity collection. I will be so sad when I run out of this paper! The fuzzy brad is by Sassafrass Lass, as are all the papers on my page.

Here's my mix of letters. I love these little Sassafras Lass letter stickers--they're the perfect size for my 8 x 8 pages. I also dug out some old Heidi Swapp rub-on letters. The black dots are Enamel Accents by Ranger. I outlined the monsters with a fineline pen and added Glossy Accents to their eyes. I also outlined the photos, letters, banner, and papers in pen. That brad is also from Sassafras Lass.

Some more of the little monsters. I tucked them inside a frame I cut out of the same paper. I roughed up the edges of my papers with my Distrezz-It-All. Such a nifty gadget!

Go check out what the rest of the team made with this sketch--awesome work there! And if you haven't yet played with any of the August sketches, there's still time. You have until August 31 to play with any of them for a chance at a prize from our sponsor, Crop Chocolate.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading about my page!

Debbi this is just fab! Love it! Sorry to hear about CCG...you are such a big part of that site. Can't wait to hear more about your new adventure, with a twist! Have a wonderful day! :)

Linda said...

Hi Debbi-
I read your email you sent to everyone associated with CCG.
I have to say, it was completely unprofessional and for you to communicate internal issues you have with the company is down right slanderous and you should be ashamed of your own behavior.
Then you even say, you are going to take the idea and spin it for your own needs, isn't that a breech of your contract and completely unethical.
Shame on you.

Dear Linda,
How incredibly rude of you! Maybe you should mind your own business, and learn the ethics of posting bull like that on someones personal blog. LINDA SHAME ON YOU!

Dearest Debi, I love you page and am very ashamed of the linda person above^^^^.
Please hang in there sweet friend, for you did what you had to, and in the end, as long as you are happy that is all that matters.
hugs! KT

Dear Linda ~
Typical that a person like you, would air the contents of a private email on a personal blog. But when one has nothing to do all day but sit on their little "SMAK" throne and stir gossip it's not surprising. You pretend to join a website because you scrap or creative but you NEVER visit daily to see or get to know ANY of the members. Do you have any friends or have you drove them all away because of your insistence to hold folks "accountable"... must be lonely at the top.

Marelize said...

Wonderful bright and happy page Debbi! Love it! :)

juscrap said...

Hi Debby! I just met you and liked you very much. I was sad to have left the CCG, but I hope to succeed in this new journey. When you are ready with your project I announced that I will love to participate.
a hug.
