Default Augl 1-15 Featured Designer - Amber Shaw Designs!

Welcome to another round of the Featured Designer Challenge! I hope you guys are ready to play!

Amber, the talent behind Amber Shaw Designs, 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!

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

Perfect mini for a 'Fish Tale' photo of my hubby and his string of fish.



Thanks for a fun mini to play with.

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!
