August Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to our August Kit Reveal and Blog Hop !
If you lose your way, here is the order:
We are so blessed to have the sweet and uber-talented, 
Lisa Gregory 
as our Guest DT for August!


Hi, My name is Lisa and by profession I am a registered nurse. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children who are now successful young adults.  I have been a crafter my whole life. Back in 2005, when my son was doing his senior project with his girlfriend (who is now his wife) They were creating a scrapbook of their lives. They elicited my help as I was the crafty one. I found Scrapbook.com and saw the kind of scrap booking the artists did. I was amazed at the styles. It just wasn't cut and paste and stickers. It was 3 dimensional, it was gorgeous, and oh so inspiring. So I created a gallery, created my first layout and the rest is history. My style has changed a bit throughout the years, but playing with and scissors is still so therapeutic for me. I am honored and excited to be Guest Designing for Scrap That for the month of August. 

Stop by Lisa's Blog
to see her gorgeous work.

We are also excited to introduce a new addition to our DT-
Monica Lowrance

Hi all! My name is Monica Lowrance.
I'm so excited to be here!! I'm excited, humbled, and honored to be here. I’ve been scrapping for many years. I fell in love with it. I love creating. I have a love for flowers, chippies and beautiful papers. Actually I love all things connected with scrapping! I love trying new techniques and colors. I also try a variety of different styles, and mixed media intrigues me.
I look forward to getting to know you all and working with you. I can’t wait to see your wonderful projects. I am so excited at the chance to work with these kits. They are gorgeous!! Please join me in my next adventure here at ScrapThat!
Feel free to stop by my blog and say hi: Happy Scrappn 2.

Here are my projects from this wonderful kit. I've always wanted to try these papers. They are gorgeous. It's been a delight to work with them.

Peace
