Daisy Love

Another month and another Daisy ready to be highlighted.  This month I would like to introduce  Marianne Barone/scrapnatya. “I started scrapbooking in October of 1998 when I was 8 months pregnant with my second daughter. I saw a presentation by Lisa Bearnson on QVC and I was hooked from the first moment I created a page. I couldn’t imagine that anyone would need any more product than what came in that one big brown box!. Many years later, I sit in my scrappy space, surrounded by all my lovely photos and crafty supplies and I am just as enamored and obsessed as I was back then. It has become my creative release and an integral part of my personality. This hobby has colored the way I view the world, and my surroundings and I am so thankful to have found a piece of myself while creating pretty things out of paper. I love to connect with other scrapbookers and have created an online group called the Stashbusters Challenge group. Everyone is welcome to play along and it’s perfect for when you need a little inspiration and direction to get started on a page. It’s hosted on the Cocoa Daisy site in the challenge forum, ” Stash Busters https://forum.cocoadaisy.com/viewforum.php?f=20.

Marianne is a welcome and inspiring member of our community here at Cocoa Daisy.  Here are some of her social media links.  Stop by and say hello.

Here are some peaks of her gallery.

Marianne is not afraid of techniques.  She seems completely at ease with stamping/painting/embossing/sewing and painting.  Her gallery is lovely, feel free to check it out and leave lots of love! Thanks for being such a great part of our community Marianne!

Okay, on to some other happy finds in the gallery.  Lots still being uploaded because of the crop.  If you haven’t already admired and commented, please do.  There is some amazing talent in the gallery.  It was really hard to pick only a few.  Let me just say that there are dozens and dozens of the most beautiful layouts. Here’s one by Jessi lute that I adore.  I love the way she used Martha’s Printables.  This was for challenge #2

This one by Carmen/northcarmen is fantastic.  I think the piechart design is really clever.

This layout by Melissa/Melissacobs for challenge #4 is so sultry and striking.

Last but not least, this PL spread by kzfoug.   Again I really like how she has used Martha’s printables.  This spread has great colors and energy.

As I said, there were dozens more applaud worthy layouts I am so inspired to create! Enjoy the gallery.
