Introducing Returning Design Team Member, Kelly Holifield

Happy Wednesday friends of SOS!
Today we are back with another Design Team Introduction.
We are so excited to have Kelly back for a second term!!!
For those of you who may be new to SOS, meet
Kelly Holifield
"My name is Kelly and I live in Texas with my hubby of 15 years who is thankfully very supportive of my crafting habit. We have 2 boys ages 14 and 13 as well as a 3 year old puppy who is our baby boy. I’ve loved crafts since I was little creating all kinds of things from cross stitching, rug making, sewing, crocheting, quilting and now playing with paper for scrapbooking, card making and an occasional altered item. My paper crafting style includes distressing and creating in clean lines with an occasional flair of ink or paint. I am a huge fan of using sketches and other challenges for inspiration. Other hobbies I enjoy are watching my boys play sports, reading, gardening, and fishing. I currently design for Paper Secrets, Sketch N Scrap & All About Boys. I am so excited to be a part of the Scrap Our Stash team for another term and look forward to creating with the team. 
Please visit me at Creating With Paper anytime. 
I would love to have you stop by!" :)

And here is  Kelly's take on our Red White and Blue Challenge.
Check out the awesome firework embellishments she created:
"Fireworks 2010"
Here is what Kelly shared about her layout:
"I knew I wanted to create some painted fireworks with my red and navy blue acrylic paints so I grabbed my arrow template and a sponge to create the shooting arrows above the photos. I have been hoarding the Pebbles Inc. Let Freedom Ring collection for a while now and decided it was a perfect time to dig into that festive stash! I wanted to find a sketch to work with but once I started playing with the papers, I just started cutting and stacking and decided I was happy with the arrangement. I took some of my scraps and cut them into 2.5” x 3.5”, ran tape along the top and side of the scraps, knotted some twine on one end and rolled each up to create some fireworks embellishments. Then I dug into the depths of my stars stash and used quite a bit of a variety to sprinkle along the top and bottom. I have so many more I could use but am happy to get a few more stars out of my stash and on my layout!" :)


Please join us in welcoming Kelly back for a second term and more of her wonderful inspiring creations!  I have a feeling she is going to turn it up a few notches this term!!!
