My name is Kimmy and I am SO excited to be guest designing for Scrap Gal this month! I teach 4th grade in the same small AZ town where I grew up. :) One of my young students is such an inspiration to me, she lost her mom last year but has not lost her cheerful attitude and optimistic outlook on life. I admire her so much for this.
This summer I taught her how to scrapbook and not only does she love it but she's really good at it too! :)

Here's my project, a layout, featuring some papers (SEI & Heidi Swapp), rub-ons (Glitz), thickers (American Crafts), & mist (Ranger) from the Scrap Gal store. I absolutely LOVE the Ranger Color Wash. SUCH bright bold colors. Definitely have to buy more of those!! The striped "Darcy" paper by SEI may be my favorite thing on this page though... I'm not partial to Austen's character or anything. ;0)



My challenge to you is this... Create a LO about someone who inspires YOU! :)
Link up your projects on the ScrapGal Facebook page and label them "Kimmy's Blog Hop Challenge" and post a comment here letting me know you have read this post. I will choose one person whose page inspires me to get a small RAK. (& I am totally cool with you combining my challenge with others on this blog hop!) Have FUN! :)

Continue on along on the Blog Hop..
