Farewell Post by Tonya Gibbs

Wow - I can't believe it has been a year already. Where has the time gone?  Honestly, I feel like I just started this creative journey.   I've enjoyed sharing with you guys each week, and I've made a lot of amazing friendships during this past year. My team mates are some of the world's most talented, and what an honor to serve next to them.  Marion is an amazing person, and I'm so happy that I can call her my friend!  Thank you for this awesome opportunity, and I look forward to future endeavors!

As my final project share, I thought I would create a masculine layout of my nephew and his first grade teacher.  I'm using pieces from Never Grow Up, Motley, Garment District and Nirvana in today's layout!

It is so fun to mix and match your collections to create the perfect project.   I love that all of Marion's lines coordinate so well! 

I have prepared a process video showing you how I made this layout!

It has been such an amazing year.  I've made some amazing friendship!  Thanks for all your comments, feedback, and love!  Let's stay in connected!  Follow the link to my blog and subscribe to all my social media outlets. 

Thanks for stopping in today, 

Tonya Gibbs
