Exciting News...Basically Bare Announcement

First of all, yes, you have been seeing a LOT of Basically Bare on my blog.  It's because I finally got my hands on some, had some time to play, and fell in love.  All about the time I fell, Basically Bare announced a design team call.  I thought about it for awhile and then decided I wanted to apply.  If I hadn't fallen in love with the product, I would not have applied, simple as that! I work  with products I love, keeps me happy! So, I am over the moon exicted to officially be a "Contender" for the final team!  This is my "Final Exam", so here it goes!

Stick with me....there is a prize, BIG PRIZE involved and you can win a bunch of goodies from the Winter CHA release that Basically Bare debuted at the show!!  Keep reading!

I was asked to pick three Basically Bare items that were my favorites and what we might make with them.  Now this is hard, because Basically Bare has so many fun products.  After looking thru the all the goodies, I narrowed it down to the following.....



The Mixed Media Tabbed Album is a great size, because it's BIGGER than most of them, so you have more room to work (or play!) on a page...like a "mini" size scrapbook page...OR you can use bigger pictures than I did for my Puppy Party mini.  Since I have started shooting all my pictures in manual mode with my Nikon, I thought it would be perfect to showcase some of my favorite shots that I have done on a bigger scale!



Hee hee, with the reason I just told you above, I HAD to pick this Paparazzi Set!  It would be the perfect embellishment on those pages!  I think I need more than one set though...I can see it...A fun pattern paper camera that is different on every page!  and hey, these would TOTALLY end up on a lot of my layouts too!


You know darn good and well there are going to be pictures of the dogs and things I love, so the Cardboard and Chipboard Hearts set is perfect to embellish with also!  They also come in canvas and felt, so of course I would have to have those also!  And I told you right now I have a love affair with hearts, so I can picture lots of fun things with these!!!

As far as what other supplies I would use, well, I have no idea!! One thought is using a Little Yellow Bicycle collection, although I am not sure which one.  Since I love LYB, that is a very definite possibility.   I do have the problem of a LOT of Studio Calico kits sitting around so there is another option.  Plus, a lot of the SC kits would work well together as far as color palettes and I would have a wide rage of goodies to choose from.  And of course, there would probably be some Unity stamping in there some where!!

Now, you can pick up Basically Bare goodies from Scrapbook.com OR......

HOW TO WIN THE BASICALLY BARE GOODIES!
(which includes embellishments AND mini albums!)

So, now for the giveaway....I am not sure how many "contenders" there are, but here is what you need to do to win.  Comment on my post, this post!  It's as simple as that!  Basically Bare is going to pick one commenter to win a big ole grand prize pack of their Winter CHA release!!  Easy right, I mean you are already here?!  So you just need to make sure and comment and you are in!!!  You don't have to follow my blog if you don't want to...only if you love what you see!  No extra entries for that!  

You have until March 15th to comment and Basically Bare will be drawing the big winner from all the blogs in the final exam and announcing on March 16th!

Here is hoping I make it thru this exam.  Heck, I even have sweaty hands!  I hate tests!  LOL
