New To You: Escape by A+ Designs

New to You is the Insider's column designed to help you discover designers you might not know. Every month we select a designer, create layouts from one of their kits and introduce you to their style. In addition, the designer provides a free add-on kit just for our readers. You never know, you might discover a new favorite or two! This month, let's meet Mel of A+ Designs at Gotta Pixel. You can find her designs on her blog A+ Designs as well. Mel started digital scrapbooking around May 2008 and by the end of 2008 started designing.  Her favorite items in her kits are artistic smears, bling and flowers.  Mel lives in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee with her husband of nine years and three- and five- year-old daughters.  She works outside of the home full-time as a sixth-grade language arts teacher.  Her teaching career is how she came up with her design name, A+ Designs.  Most of Mel's hobbies include technology, but if you can't find her scrapping or designing, you'll find her  shopping! The DST Creative Team created layouts with A+ Designs' Escape. Check out their inspiring layouts and see what they have to say about this fun kit! Plus, don't forget to download your gift from A+ Designs, the Escape add-on freebie, at the end of this article.
