(Hope I did this right, just noticed this game today!)

For Thao Cosgrove:
I picked ScrapSimple Alpha Templates: Vintage Folio.
I love the aged and distressed look of these Alpha's and they look like they have a lot of versatility and would be fun to play with. I think they would make any word art or title stand out no matter what your layout style is!

Super Pack: Doggy Tales
My pets are my kids so I love anything that has to do with cats and dogs. I was so happy to see Doggy Tales offered in a Value Pack when I purchased it. My next pet purchase will be the Cat Collection value pack.

Hi, Theresa, so glad you are playing along! :)

Thao Cosgrove: Once again it's tough to narrow it down to one product, but I pick
Vintage Folio Paper Templates

They add wonderful grunge and texture to my layouts.

It was hard to make this choice, but I picked the Passion Collection and Passion 2 Collection Mini (both part of the same product family, right?) I love the rich colors, and contemporary, yet elegant designs of this pair of collections.

Tiza, what happens, exactly, if we post more than one product in the same posting? Does our entry get disqualified? Or do you mean that we are limited to one reply posting? I'll go back and edit mine if two related products are a problem. Thanks!

Alright, I can't resist playing for fun! I love so much of Thao's stuff, but the one I probably dip into the most is:

Basically you only get one entry per designer. So in the case of your post, where you used 2 of Thao's products, it will still only count as one answer/entry.

My link Friendship Super Pack

For some reason I don't see my post for today so I will try it again. Sorry if it ends up being a duplicate.

I choose Thao's Friendship Super Pack. I have such great friends and this seems like the perfect set for creating pages about them. Also, Thao has so many great products it was difficult to choose just one. I already own and use a few of her other packs. I am so impressed and inspired by her creativity and productivity. Keep up the great work!!

I am loving this game! I am always in the boutique just for fun but this game is really giving me the chance to see so many products I hadn't discovered yet. I think it's a great idea...my husband would probably disagree though lmao :lol:

Thao Cosgrove - Wow this one is hard. Thao has so done so much of my go to stuff from when I first started scrapping. One of the things I love about her stuff is that she makes it so easy to get the look of fine art on my scrapbook pages. I think my favorite is ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Vintage Folio because it makes my photos have an old antique, fine art look to them. I love them!

Thao Cosgrove: All About Marriage Collection Biggie
My favorite photos to scrap are those of my husband and me together. It's such a wonderful way to celebrate our love in a lasting layout, and this collection is simply gorgeous! I just love the rose petals, the glass of champagne, and the word art. :)

LORI COOK
I'm picking Lori's Tropical Paradise Brush Set.
I have these brushes, and the second set also. I think they are so wonderful for creating tropical looking backgrounds, and I really use them a lot.

For Lori Cook, I think my favorite item is Brush Set: Ornamental Grunge. I love the grungy factor coupled with Christmas items. Very cool looking.

I have quite a few of Lori's great products, but have recent especially enjoyed her Steampunkery Embellishments Biggie. Posted Image

It's got really interesting pieces, and also coordinates with the Time Traveler Collections, Junk in the Trunk, and more! I hope she'll be able to do more Steam Punk one of these days.

Alright, it was hard to choose just one from all of her products...but I finally managed to narrow it down.

I chose her Texture Set: Designs.
I thought these would have great versatility, whether adding texture to a photo, adding onto a paper or even elements!

I'm going to claim these as what "speaks" to me today. lol Too hard to say anything is my favorite. There are so many fabulous things!

Hmmm...some images didn't work. I could only get a larger version to post.
Tiza, just tell me if they're too big and I'll delete them. It seems to be the "older" items.
