~Creatively Scrapping & D-STRESS GIVEAWAY RIGHT HERE!~

Good morning my crafty friends!

I am so excited and feeling very creative this week.
I made this layout for the Tally Scrapper Survivor Challenge,
using the March Kit from Tally Scrapper.
I added the Banner and card stock but the rest is the Tally Kit.
The journaling says:
I wish I had known I am Really STRONG and a little crazy when my ex husband
was beating me up. I wonder how my life would have been different if
I knew then what I know now? Hindsight really is 20/20.
Of course I used my Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and the 3D Combo Pack.
I am pretty much addicted to that stuff!
Did I mention the kit name? "Lucy you got alot of scrappin' to do!" hehe
Makes me smile every time I type it out or say it outloud!
I really love how the challenges on Tally can be as serious or as light as
you want and I am always challenged to create.
My best layouts come from the Survivor challenges! ♡♡♡♡

Ok on to the GIVEAWAY!!!!
How about a brand new D-Stress from Imaginisce?! MY FAVORITE TOOL!
Seriously my most favorite tool of all time!

I am on a couple Design Teams and sometimes I get doubles, well
this is one of those times!
I just did a class with this tool and plan another one in March.
This tool works like a charm and is so easy to use. If you make
mini albums or distress at all....this is the tool for you!!

You don't have to do anything but share
the GIVEAWAY! Or just share my blog.... I love my blog friends.
FOLLOW my blog and leave a comment!

Basically you know how it works, the more followers, the more
companies contact me to giveaway goodies. You make it happen and
I give away everything I get! ♡♡♡♡♡

Next week I will randomly draw a winner!!!!

Also I wanted to remind you that Clear Scraps is just
5 followers away from 250!~
AND they are hosting a giveaway today!!!!!!!! GO LOOK!

~THANK YOU for stopping by and commenting,
I read EVERY comment!!!~

Another great layout Pinky! Love the name of the kit too. But then I've always loved Lucy too. It has a vintage feel to it without the dark colors usually associated with vintage layouts. Great job & TFS! Thanks for the chance to win. Of course I am a follower!
