This last one was kind of an unofficial challenge for myself base on Ali Edward's section in the lastest CK. She used a square punch of different items on her desk and scrapped them. So here's my take on her idea:

Noah: Once upon a time there was a little dinosaur - his name was Littlefoot - and he had friends.
April: Who were his friends?
Noah: Cera, Spike, Petri, and.....and.......and (he's thinking) Ducky!!!!
April: What did they do?
Noah: Littlefoot played with his friends. [proudly] BEGINNING!!!!
So, to tell you about Scarlet, I'll begin with Noah's "beginning" (which is actually the end), because although we've been friends for a long time, it's the friendship with her now that I value most. So, here's the top 10 list for things I love about Scarlet:
- She is absolutely meticulous about every thing she does.
- Her eye for detail on her LOs is amazing and she always wants at least one page element to be "inventive."
- She makes the most awesome birthday cards!
- She loves her children.
- She is a hard worker and always strives to do her best.
- She has a Canon SLR!!! (and good lenses, too!)
- Her writing skills are top-notch (I love reading her journaling).
- She is the most loyal and thoughtful person I know.
- She likes Mexican food.
- She puts up with me!
This is why I'm proud to be launching Studio Calico with her.

Pretty cool, huh?
So, you might be wondering, why "calico" (I'm assuming the "studio" part is self-explanatory),
Very simple. Both Scarlet and I love using neutral colors as the background for many of our layouts. We love how the pictures and journaling "pop" on the page when it's on cardstock that doesn't compete with the colors in the photos. Calico consists of black, white, and brown, all neutral colors. Since we will be including at least 3 neutrals in every kit, "calico" seemed an appropriate choice. What do you think?
