the very talented
Stacy Harper Watson
Today Stacy is sharing a little bit about herself and the fabulous layout she created 
inspired by the challenge:
"Hello, I'm Stacy Harper Watson. I'm a stay-at-home mother of 5 fun and crazy kids ranging in age from 8 to 16. I'm a woman who loves her husband and kids and tries to find a little time each day to be creative. I have always been crafty but only started scrapping after I adopted my youngest child. I became best friends with one of the other adopting mothers. She was a scrapper and she brought me over to the "dark side"! (smile) Seriously, I am so happy that she got me hooked on scrapping because I LOVE it! I'm so happy and honored to have been chosen to be a guest designer here at SOS! I would love to have you check out my blog, Scrap With Stacy."
"Walking With Daddy"
"When I looked at this book cover I was immediately inspired by the father and children on the cover. I recently printed out some photos of my goddaughter's husband and their child. I've been scrapping so many layouts of her adorable daughter lately. This photo of father and daughter taking one of their first walks together was just too precious not to scrap and preserve the memory.

I was excited to use the Fancy Pants-Attwell Page Kit included my June Flavor of the Month Kit from The ScrapRoom.  I just LOVE the bright bold colors and florals! I decided to fussy cut some flowers out of floral sheet of patterned paper to get some of my pops of yellow for the other part of the challenge. I just knew it would jump off that black card stock base sheet. I splattered on Color Shine in Chartreuse, Peacock and Butter and also Dylusions ink spray in white on the base paper. Then I just layered the different patterned papers and added some embellishments. I finished by doodling with a white pen. I love how this layout turned out and I had such fun with this challenge!!"

Thank you so much Stacy for being our guest this month, and sharing your
