Amber, the talent behind Amber Shaw Designs (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_213&zenid=2ad629735c1a508fb704befd922bddfd), is our next FEATURED DESIGNER! What can I say about Amber other than she is awesome! I really can't tell people enough how much I LOVE her design style! She has such a flair of pulling things together to really get the feel of the theme of a kit! And, the shabbiness of her designs really sells them for me! Her featured kit, Sail Away (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_213&products_id=13806&zenid=2ad629735c1a508fb704befd922bddfd), is fantastic, the colors just scream ocean harbor, especially those worn, shabby, wooden frames, perfect!! But, what I'm really in love with.... the RED anchor! :DD :))

One quick question....do we need to use Everything that is included in the download?

Amber Shaw

If I am correct, you do not have to use everything in the download, you just can't add to it. Clear as mud? :)

That's right, you don't have to use everything, you just can't add any additional elements/papers from any other kit ;)

Just love your layout.

Congratulations on your 50th wedding anniversary and I hope you enjoy your cruise in September.

I've been married for 42 years to the most wonderful man but we've never been on a cruise.

Luv Chris

Ok, at first when I saw this kit I wasn't sure, but then I remembered this picture from when my daughter was little bitty and I got very excited to do this challenge. I did have to do a little tweaking though because I felt lost without a single ribbon, so I drew a thin rectangle in photoshop and used the starfish to layer across it so I had something to hang the tag from.

I was away for a few days and just getting back to the forums and WOW you ladies have really made some gorgeous layouts! I hope you have enjoyed the challenge, I love how creative everyone was in using the mini. From fishing to kites, to sweet babies. Such wonderful talent here! I sure hope to see some more!

Oh, good. When I was linking this to the forum, I found out the answer to my question about whether or not I had to use everything in the kit. I don't! I only used two papers from the kit (plus a template, which the rules said was OK), and filled one space in the template with color from my photograph. The colors of the papers fit SO PERFECTLY with my picture! I didn't have to do any manipulation or anything!

Great mini kit. Thank you Amber Shaw. I was standing on the pier waiting to catch the small boat back to the cruise ship. I was watching the locals in Kona, Hawaii enjoying the harbor when this little boy, thinking about it two or three times, took a flying leap from the dock to the water below- maybe 25 feet. You'll see him in the next summer Olympics. He's going to be a great platform diver. He could not have been more than 5 years old. And yes, he swam to shore, ran around and did it again. I almost missed the boat! lol.
