Come join me in the Garment District

I just have to tell you how much fun I am having with the newest Studio Calico kit called Garment Distict. It is very fun, colorful and quite girly...I must say. LOL! No complaints though, 'cause now I can create pretty pictures about ME! I started with this LO last weekend and I already have more. This LO was just for fun and maybe I am being a wee bit conceited, but if people tell me (I rock) enough times...I may start to believe them:

This card is based on another one of Nancy's beautiful creations. You all know how I adore ALL that she creates!

This LO serves a couple of purposes. The first being a challenge that my friend Debbie and her friends were doing to use chipboard on a LO. I used some of the left over flowers from last months SC Fortune Cookie kit. I inked and used stickes on them. Aren't they pretty?

and second...as I have been sorting through my old photo albums, I have been pulling out pics of me (from over the years) that I really love. This being one of them. This is me way back in 1986, sight seeing in Hollywood, CA on the walk of fame. Tina Turner was one of my faves at the time, so I had to have a pic "with Tina".

Okay, so I did actually get one 'boy LO' out of it, so far. This is Bryant's first skateboard. He loves it and aspires to be Tony Hawk one day, but for now he needs to learn balance.

The kit actually comes with a set of Sass alphabet stickers, but I used them as a stencil (along with spray paint and cheesecloth) to make a cool grungy title. I love the way it looks!!!

So this is what I have so far...with more to come. I have got many more projects in the works. I always have somethin' goin' on...
Oh and Ki, if you are out there, I have big plans for your gift from the post below. Thanks for playing along!
I Love to make gifts for my friends and family. You can still play along too. Check it out. You know you want too.....

You do rock. Keep repeating that and believing that. Word.

The layouts you have shared are awesome! Love what you did with the SC kit. I haven't used mine yet. Gulp. Bad me. Bryant's layout is so fun. I love how you did the wave and the title. Awesome is the best description.
