#tgifc92 - Designer Spotlight - Jeanna Bohanon

Before we get started highlighting this week's challenge, we would like to take a moment to thank you all for visiting and playing along. It is so exciting to see so many wonderful challenge cards each week. It truly helps keep us inspired, when we see you loving and creating along with our challenges! Y'all made it REALLY HARD to choose a winner again this week, but in the end, the team decided on:
Congrats!


We also have MORE exciting news to share! This week we are welcoming TWO new designers to our TGIF team! The fabulous Melissa Stout and Breelin Renwick!!!! They are both fabulous women and amazingly talented!



Ok, so it happens to be my week to be the "spotlighted designer" I usually like saying awesome things about the other designers on the team, but not sure I can exactly do that about myself. So, unless one of them jumps in and takes this over, you'll have to settle for me answering the standard questions.

Image may contain: 1 person

 1. Tell us about yourself: I'm a mom of 3 boys, married to my handsome hero, and  live in Las Vegas, NV. I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator now for 11 years and had the honor of serving on the 2012 and 2013 Artisan Design Teams. Yesterday was my birthday :)
2. Three words that describe your style: Cheery, Clean, and Detailed
3. Most awesome crafty moment: Being chosen for the Artisan Teams and seeing my cards in magazines!
4.What two Stampin' Up! products could you not live without: My Big Shot (and accessories of course) and my Aquapainters (I might be addicted to watercoloring)
5. A random fact: I could probably eat Peach Gummy Rings every day!
6. Tip of the Day: When in doubt, turn to the catalogs! There are SO many amazing ideas. Look to it for layouts, or color combos, or look for fun new techniques you might not have tried yet.

So how does this new challenge work?
All you have to do is create something inspired by our spotlighted designer!

So use the picture above or visit her blog Stamp Time Somewhere
  to find something that truly get your mojo going.
We would love to see what creation you chose so please link back to it if you can.
;)

~Now let's see how our Team was inspired~

#tgifc91- Inspiration

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”– The Notebook

Ok, so how many of us have watched The Notebook? Maybe more than once for more than a few of us. It's one of the first movies I think of when I think about love, so I figured a beautiful quote about love straight from the movie would definitely set the tone for this week's challenge.

This week's challenge doesn't have to be about Valentines - just love in general. So go wild, awaken your soul and reach for more!

Before we take a look at what our designers have created this week, let's take a moment to recognize  ....PETRA for being our team's favorite card last week! Let me tell you - we had a hard time picking just one this week - there were SO MANY fabulous cards submitted last week. Thank you ALL for playing along with our challenges.
