CT Moonshine Dezinez - Blue Gloria

Scrap Kit: Designer - Moonshine Dezinez Kit: Gloria Blue (Exclusive to Hania's Designs)   Available Here

Both are available at Hania's Designs
This is great kit for all of your summer tags. Whether the theme is beach/vacation/summer and or tropical.
Kit has 3 frames, 60 Elements, and 10 papers

I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.

This tutorial was written by me on 07/08/2017 and is purely of my own making. If there is any resemblance to any other tut it is purely coincidental. Please do not claim as your own.

Please refer to my TOU on the left sidebar.

Regina De Luporum (Book 2 of new series) By Carrie Hogle




Regina De Luporum (Book 2 of new series)
Carrie Hogle
Romance, Drama & Suspense



What's the Queen of Wolves to do with unlimited power, a loyal pack, unmet vengeance, a scarred heart, and nothing but time? Ruling the current world power, by means of the elite Luporum Cubilia syndicate, leaves no room for error or emotion. What do you choose when a lone wolf offers the ultimate temptation at an unknown price? When the pieces on the board are set, the game is underway, and the lines between predator and prey are blurred, the probability of death is high. If the cost is a life, who is going to pay? Regardless of perception, time stands still for no one.




*Warning: If you have read the Willing Surrender Trilogy, this series is darker, gritty, raw & highly emotional.
If you have not read the Willing Surrender Trilogy, this series is written as a standalone...but, if you would like the full relationship history & character evolution, give it a try. (Link Below)
Be sure to add it to your Goodreads list!

The Willing Surrender Series:
Willing Surrender

Willing Redemption







Author, Designer, Paranormal Fan, Poetry lover, Coffee Aficionado & Eccentric Extraordinaire. An Anthropology major with the heart of an artist & a gypsy soul. Always mischievous & a little bit bad ;) For an earth sign, I'm kind of random. Mostly I'm the girl with headphones on & notebook in hand.


I may write "romance" but always expect realistic emotions & natural progression. I don't write insta-love & I don't always promise a happily ever after. My characters are flawed & raw, my stories are emotional & will rarely take you where you expect to go.



All forms of art are reflections of someone's soul. Always take time to appreciate the emotions & stories you're continuously surrounded by.
