Scrapper's Delights New Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the first hop of the new team for

Hopefully you have arrived from the fabulously talented
(if you haven't please start at the beginning...
you do not want to miss anyone or anything)
This hop is to give you the opportunity to
learn a little about each of us on the wonderful team...

So I would like to introduce myself...
My name is Kim, I live in the extremely hot Tucson, AZ.
I am married...for the second time...I always say the first time
I married for my daughter, Jenna and
the second time I married for love. 
I received not only a great marriage but 2 great step-sons!
I also have 2 of the most gorgeous dogs ever!
We own 2 pure bred Japanese Akitas. Both are retired show
dogs, one because of health issues and one because she hated it! LOL

Sorry I had to add one picture of them!
This is Zilla (I did not name her) and Koda.

-What do you consider your style is?
This is a hard question, believe it or not.
For me it depends on what I am creating and for whom I am creating it.
I am finding myself going a bit more into the mixed media realm. But as
for an actual style...eclectic, works!

-What is your favourite tool or technique to use?
Tool would have to be my copics. I finally own all of the colors in the sketch!
My favorite technique would have to be...
adding ink..spray, distress or daubers.

-What is your favourite embellishment?
HMMM who came up with these questions?
Oh right, me.
Ribbons, flowers and pearls,
Rhinestones, charms and twine,
Anything that goes together
you may find on a project of mine!

I love to create...I find if I do not get into my crafting room
a few times a week, I am ready to go postal.
We own our own business and working 40 plus
hours a week, raising a child (the boys are older0, taking care of a house,
well it can be creating something allows
me to stay sane and deal with customers! LOL

So here is what I created for this hop...

I made a group of 5 tags using the Magna Beach Series. I fell in love
with this little girl and thought what a perfect set of images to use for a tag "book".
I used grunge board/paper from Tim Holtz, with the tissue paper from him as well.
I used a combonation of fiber, molding and soft gel medium mixed with an iridescent acrylic..
then spritz it with Dylusions sprays. Stamped som Tim Holtz stamps and added flowers, ribbon,
and a bunch of little embellies! Threw a bead chain around it and VIOLA...
I have a inspirational tag book for my daughter!
And here is my part of the code for the $50% off!

Also we have some prizes to give away!
Make sure you leave a comment on each blog stop along the way,
because if your comment is chosen you have
the chance to win a Scrapper's Delights Image!
The hop will continue through Saturday the 9th
and some time on Sunday we will announce the winners!

The next stop on your journey is the lovely and artistic Miss Leona!

And if you have no clue where you are here is the hop list!
