NBC’s America Got Talent and our own talented linking party!

Hi Everyone,
I’ve been watching a couple of TV shows lately more than I usually watch. I’ve been a huge fan of Amazing Race, my goal is to one day get on that show. NBC’s America got talent is such an awesome show you never know what kind of talent is going to be showcased, kinda like our weekly linking party here, minus Piers dry sense of humor.
Remember last year I was in pain with sciatic nerve on my lower back, guess what it has returned and it’s worse than before, my chiropractor suggested bed rest, not being able to craft that left me w/time to watch a bunch of shows. We are counting down the last days of Summer getting ready for back to school :)
What are are your favorite shows?
Are you ready to meet the  world talented crafters this week?

Congrats to all the ladies and here’s your badge for your blog…

Please click on the pictures to visit their blogs!
I found myself at Kohl's today searching for the perfect Coral colour t-shirt to recreate this awesome tutorial.
Wouldn’t this be an amazing party conversation to have those awesome sailboats place setting for Thanksgiving?
I have no where to put a pouf, but my daughter is going to college in 1 year, I’m so making this for her dorm room.
Yes I’m the crazy woman that collects everything from a vacation, so when I saw this idea I wanted to sing Alleluia from the top of my lungs…
Wow this tutorial is so amazingly simple to do but yet it packs a punch on creativity!
Got a project that should be getting  attention?

Back to school ideas from our design team!

Please help us welcome our newest designer Carole Palmiere, we are so excited to have her with us, Carole was our guest designer for the month of July.

Hello crafters! I hope you are having a wonderful day! To say I am thrilled to be the newest member of the Passionately Artistic Design Team would be an understatement. Thank you, Maggie, for giving me this wonderful opportunity. A bit about me, I am a wife of 33 yrs to my wonderful (most times) husband Don. We have two wonderful (sometimes) adult children and I work full time for a commercial insurance company. I love to craft. I have been doing paper crafts for about 15 years now and I don't ever seem to get bored with it. I started out scrapbooking, moved on to cards, and now, I'm game to try just about anything. So many crafting ideas, so little time is my motto.
I can't wait to see what challenges Maggie will have us for the coming months and I hope I can inspire you with some of my projects. Please drop me a comment from time to time, I would love to hear from you! Make it a crafty day,Carole

1. I stamped the image from SU! Greeting Card Kids and colored with copics.
2. Then I cut out image and the mat with Spellbinders Labels.  I used a copic marker around edge of smaller label.
3. The background sheet with letters is from a Memory Box paper pad.  I embossed it with Cuttlebug Numbers folder and attached to card base.
4. I embossed the Cuttlebug ruler and attached to the card.  I added the organdy ribbon and bow using Beacon 3-in-1 glue.
5. I didn't have red pearls so I colored white ones with a copic marker and attached them to complete the card.
