Happy Snapshot and a sad farewell

Well, sadly,  as Beck has already mentioned in her post below, this will be my last blog post for Scrappy Chat Designs.  :(

I loved playing with the Home Grown Kit.
And as you have already seen by all the layouts from the DT (and wait until you see what the Guest Designer Amanda Hall has in store for you! wow!)
oops.. I digress.
Well as you have already seen by what the other girls have created, this kit is very versatile.

For my last layout.. Happy Snapshot, I created a VERY quick and simple layout.
I found an old Kaisercraft stamp that I have been wanting to use for ages and simply stamped the background with black ink.
Added a few paint "splats" (another Kaiser stamp from an earlier SCD kit) using white ink.

And then I simply added layers of the kits paper, that yummy cork sheet and the Jillibean Soup Kraft Tape in the kit.

A sprinkling of stars and fragments by  Stampendous  and the layout is complete!
As I said .. quick and simple.. it is amazing how much depth a simple stamped background can create on your layout.. why not give it a go?
So now it comes to the time to say goodbye.
I am leaving for personal reasons.. Life is just getting in the way (I'm sure most of you can relate :) )

I would firstly like to say THANK YOU to Beck for having the faith in me to include me in her amazing team.
I LOVE the kits and I have learn't so  much in my time with Scrappy Chat Designs.
Not only have I learn't by pushing myself trying to come up with different ideas and techniques to use with the kit products.. but also from each and every wonderful Arty Chic on the SCD DT team.
I leave the Scrappy Chat team all the richer for knowing these wonderful girls.
Behind the scenes these girls are amazingly supportive, funny and just downright gorgeous.
We have laughed together, cried together and driven each other mad with the constant "pinging" of the FB messenger notifications ;-)
I know that we shall remain firm friends.. and for that I will remain so thankful to Beck, Heather, Fiona, Renee and Kim. Love you girls xx

And also thank you to YOU.. the Scrappy Chat Members.
For all your kind words and for giving what we do a go!
It is always wonderful to get feedback from you all.

So, that's it from me for now.

Happy Scrapping,  and Take Care of You :-)
