Every month, Beggahuna draws up a sketch that goes with the kit, and this month she created this beauty:

Here's my take on it:
 The baby in the picture, is my new born Grandson, Levi.
And I thought this sketch was perfect for this photo.

 The Viva Decor Clear Stampset came in the Main kit. I stamped the flourishes using Distress ink in Seedless Preserves. The wooden leaves are Prima Marketing and came also in the Main kit.

 Don't you just love that corner? I love it! It was on a sticker sheet (Kaisercraft) and came in the Main kit.

Writing home
This picture was taken, when our oldest daughter, Kelly, was on vacation in Turkey. She was writing a postcard to send home, when her boyfriend snapped this picture of her.

 Gosh, how much I love this kit. Krissy JAM PACKED them with lots of  Must Haves!!!
Those darling, Prima Marketing crochetted doilies, wood icons, the beautiful say it in pearls,
Viva Decor clear stamps, and gorgeous trims.

I stamped the inages on smooth white scrapbook paper and cut them out.

Chubby Little Feet
 For this page I tried to combine a modern picture with a more classic layout.
I wanted the photo to stand out most and kept the background very quiet.
The strip at the bottom is Heidi Swapp Invisible (resist) paper. This paper also came in the Main kit.

 This Giant Prima flower is from ages ago. I guess it was waiting for the right project.

I cut some leaves from the green ribbon and coated them with Multi Medium, then when it was dry
I sprayed the leaves with Heidi Swapp spray ink in white, which came in the Medium Add On.

The title says it all. This is my daughter Kelly with her son Levi.
I loved this photo so much. The little peanut was winking to grandma! lol

This kit is so, beyond words, GORGEOUS! I mean the papers are beautiful but the embellies/goodies that come along with this kit are simply amazing.
