We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  

This kit is so gorgeous and easy to create with and OMG....
Have you seen that beautiful frame that comes in the Main Kit? Isn't that amazing!!!!
I loved to work with this kit and the frame, I used it in multiple ways.
Altered Frame
 For my background I used the embossing powder that came in the Mediums AddOn and oh my gosh, how much I love it!!  In the pic below you can see the effect it is given. It is an aqua/teal embossing powder with a silver finish in it.
This little bundle of joy, is my grandson Levi. He's such a happy little guy. Always smiling!
Starting to Crawl
As you can see, I used the frame as a mask, and spritzed over it, using Heidi Swapp spray paint in white. Then after heat set it, I sprayed some more at the left side of the page and sprinkled that amazing embossing powder from the Mediums AddOn over it. Love how it came out.
Oh, What a Darling
We Always get the most beautiful embellishments and trims in the kits, and this time, when my kit arrived, I felt like a kid in a candy store.. so many gorgeous stuff. This page came together in about one hour. Fussy cutting the frame and adding machine stitching took the most time of it.
Everything coordinates so beautifully together.

My next page is based on this months sketch:
 And here's my take on it.

Your smile means the world to me
Another page about my DGS, I can't resist his cute little smile.

I also managed to do some cards.

Diamonds, A girls best friend
 We had a Bling AddOn kit and I was Lucky enough to get my hands on it.

Thinking of you

Just for you
I outlined this card, using  Edding Metallic Gel pens. I love how it looks on black, but also on a white background. I used it for my title in my sketch based layout.

I have PLENTY of papers and goodies left, so I will be happily creating some more projects.
