Did someone say RAK?

So, I do believe I promised a RAK, didn't I? :-) As a little thank you to my blog readers, I have a little giveway to celebrate my 100th post the other day. So, just leave me a comment on this thread, and I will randomly pick a person to win this box of goodies:
The box includes the Feb. issue of Scrapbook Trends, the Feb/March issue of Simply Handmade, Jillibean Soup letters, a package of KI Softies, K&Company chipboard letters and Making Memories Sabrina ribbon slides. You can post comments on this post up until Friday (2/27), and I will post a winner that day.

So, I had a very fun and very productive crop yesterday! I so love going to 12-hour crops! I love it because not only do I get to spend an entire day doing one of my very favorite things, but it is a day just for me! My only responsibility for 12 hours is picking out embellishments that will match my papers ;-) I went with two friends/neighbors, and it was also fun catching up with my old Recollections friends who were there, so the social aspect is a huge perk as well!

I completed five layouts, but I can't share two of the layouts that I did yet (for CMK), so I will post those in a few days. Here are two Fancy Pants layouts I did. The first one uses a combo of the On a Whimsy and the Summer Soiree line, as well as a glitter cut. I also added in some Rose Moka yellow letters that matched perfectly:


This next one uses paper from the Summer Soiree line, with some Daily Grind chipboard mixed in:

Finally, this last layout was done just for fun. I played with the gorgeous circular CI paper I had, as well as some new Basic Grey (the Porceline line is gorgeous!). Also used new transparent stickers from American Crafts and a MM frame. That little fabric ballet tab is an older product that i've been holding onto for awhile ;-) I added tulle to the large picture to emphasize Chloe's little leotard/skirt outfit.


Hope that everyone is having a great weekend!!
p.s. don't forget that you can get a closer look at the RAK prize, as well as the other photos by clicking on them :-)

Staci,

These three LO's are truly spectacular; the one of Chloe in her tutu with the tulle is just GORGOUS! You truly outdid yourself on these. Guess that 12 hour scrapping was well worth it!

Hey girl .. I am still waiting on my box of goodies LOL .. okay love the layout ..it is fabulous .. and the colors are awesome.

Heather said...

The machine stitching does add so much to those layouts - they look great! The CMK layouts are going to knock everyone's socks off (although I think the Tiny Dancer layout is my favorite). So inspirational - hoping I absorbed some of your talent just by scrapping with you! : )

Lisa T. Howard said...

Sooo glad you got to scrap this weekend! I would have much rather been scrappin' than do what I had to do. lol! Great layouts. I love them all but I had to linger on the ballerina layout. Not only did you rock this layout but the photos placed a smile on my heart. Hope you have a happy Monday!
