Farewell Elise!

I have a really fun card to share with you today, but it's for a really sad occasion - our Beary Scrappy Gal Elise, is stepping down from the Design Team.

Elise, you have inspired so many people, not only with your over the top talent, but your kind and thoughtful words. Your encouragement has touched many people's lives and I'm sure that you will continue to spread sunshine wherever you go! Please know that we will miss you - but you will always be one of the gals!

I used a Sweet little Tilda (in honor of our very own Queen of the Magnolia's - Elise). She is all packed up and ready to go. The papers are Basic Grey - Cappella. I added one of their fabric flowers, Bloomers - which are just great! I still don't have my computer back, so the picture quality isn't great, but if you look at my distressing on the horizontal paper, you will notice that before I "roughed" the edges up, I ran the paper through a puddle of Glimmer Mist. This not only makes it really easy to distress, but also adds that shimmer and shine.

Be sure to drop by Elise's Blog and leave her some love for all that she has done. We will miss you girlie!

Please visit each blog, and as you're crying along with us, be sure to become a follower if you're not already *and* leave a comment. Please post our candy on your blog, too. At the end, go back to The Beary Scrap Design Team blog and let us know you followed along - you could win (even if you're international)!

The hop is open through Saturday, September 4th, and we'll announce a random winner from all the comments on Sunday. The prize is an assortment of embellishments* you'll find on Elise's fabulous projects: satin and sheer ribbons, lace, pearls, pins, little baubles and delicious flowers flowers flowers!

Thanks for helping us bid a fond farewell to Elise!

Gini .. it was such a PLEASURE creating with all of you Beary Scrap Girls and I LOVE each and every single one of you! Thank you SO much for always giving me inspiration with your weekly posts, and for showing me how distressing is REALLY done *you ROCK!*, and for always bringing a smile to my face with your comments! :) Awww, I am so touched beyond words that I will always be "one of the gals!" Yayyy! That makes my heart sing!!!! :)

I will say again like how I've done on the other girls blogs, I know there is so much more for me to say, but I am SO overwhelmed with so many feeling right now and all the words cannot come together. I truly love you Sweet DT Sisters!!!

Well, and here you are again with another GORGEOUSLY STUNNING creation! Gosh! Look at that distressing and vintage look! Along with the most BEAUTIFUL papers and PERFECT embellies to surround Tilda!!!! sigh ... FABULOUS it is! :)
