CASE Study Challenge #34

HOORAY!! It's time to introduce you all to our brand new Muse, and a *totally* fabulous one might I add!!
This girl has a knack for Clean & Simple, and no one rocks white space as masterfully as she does. Dear ladies, let's join our hands together for the amazing Silke Ledlow!!!

Hello everyone!!! My name is Silke Ledlow and I live in the beautiful State of Georgia close to Savannah. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the States about 13 yrs ago. I'm married to my wonderful husband Jerry and we have three beautiful daughters, Sarah 13, Rebecca almost 10 and our little Miriam is 6. Not to forget the biggest baby ever...our almost 3 year old boxer *Luke*.
I started stamping in 2001 and was hooked immediately. Shortly after I started my blog *My Life* and I have been crafty ever since. Unfortunately my stamping time has been cut short lately, since I started working full-time at our local University.
What can I is crazy around here...LOL!!!
I want to thank Iwona and the Design Team for *showing* me off this month! I hope you will have the chance to join us..and I can't wait to see your ideas! Hugs ~S~

The inspiration card that we're starting off this month with, is a classic "Silke-style" creation. Bold & beautiful... have fun with it!

This week's returning sponsor is The Stamping Boutique!!

I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor Case Study. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as,
their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.
