We welcomed Sharla as our guest Designer in June and loved her creations so much that we had to have her back again in August! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Sharla blogs over at This Thing Called Life

Hi everyone! My name is Sharla and  I’m so excited to be back as a guest designer for August! This is such a fun place to play, find lots of inspiration, buy fun, cute, quirky and sweet images and make fabulous friends.  

A little about me….I’ve been scrapping, card making, wood working, and finding diy projects for as long as I can remember. I’m a little obsessed with Copics, I’m addicted to diet coke and if ice-cream was the only food on the food pyramid…I would be totally ok with that! I love movies and reading, I love to travel and I love food.  I would love to travel the US and hit all the places featured on Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives.  ๐Ÿ˜€

If I had to say what my style is, I would say clean and layered is what I mostly gravitate too.  I have tried the shabby chic look and while I love it, I’m not sure I can pull it off.  I love using bright colors, polka dots and pattern papers.  Sometimes when I am done with a card, I realize I’ve only used paper and no other embellishments.  I really love my copics…did I say that already? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have two adult children and 3 adult step-daughters, one who will be making us grandparents in November, we are so excited!  My daughter will be a freshman at our local university and my son will be graduating the police academy later this month. 

Well, that’s me in a nutshell.  I’m really happy for this opportunity to be a guest at such a fun place in the blogesphere!  Hope you join us in our challenges, play along and make sure you say hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is Sharla’s first project with us this month:

Can’t wait to see what you create with us this month, Sharla!
