My name is Bree and I am a scrapaholic. I have been dabbling in art one way or another since I was a child, but have become a die hard scrapbooker over the last couple of years. If I'm not spending time with my family, or taking photos of them, I am creating something at my scrapbook table. I am an avid "eco-crafter".

Here are our DT's takes for this Challenge!
Designer Cabbie's Album
She used the clear acetate template, painted the edges with acrylic and embellished it simply.

Designer Felicia's Album

She heated the clear acetate to curl it and inked it to highlight the edges. She did layering with it on the wooden pages.

Designer's Bree Album

She sewed red coral onto the cover (or at least to look like coral), hand sewed the acetate onto a paper and made it a shaker box.

Designer's Candy Album

Designer's Raechelle's Album

She used microbeads to create texture on the clear acetates.
