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:
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 :-)

I had a nice surprise today - when I got home from work, one of my friends at CMK pointed out to me that Teresa Collins' featured one of my layouts on her blog here - so cool! I also got a happy e-mail from Scrapbook Trends the other day requesting one of my layouts for their July issue. My layout was actually in the hands of Fancy Pants since it was done for CHA, and Jodi was kind enough to mail it off for me :-)
Speaking of Fancy Pants, this is a recent layout I did mixing several lines, including the new Summer Soiree line. That awesome scalloped border stamp is also from the new Summer Soiree stamp set. This LO was also done for the latest prompt up at the Forward Progress blog.
Journaling reads: This life is better then I could have imagined. This life has made me a wife and a mommy, and because of that, I am complete. I am where I want to be in this life, and I am who I want to be. Of course, there's always room for improvement :-)
So, my all day crop is quickly approaching, and I'm anxiously awaiting a box from CMK and Luxe this week - should be perfect timing ;-)
Btw, I forgot to mention in my last post that it was my 100th blog post, wow! I plan to do a RAK to celebrate, so keep an eye out! Happy hump day, everyone!

Before I show some Valentine's projects I made, I wanted to share this layout I made using CMK's February kit. I used Lisa's Friday Formula for this layout - she posts a new formula every Friday, and all the participants have the chance to win a RAK if you post your layout within the deadline. This layout shows one of Chloe's favorite new drama-queen poses, lol.
Ok, nobody freak out, but I actually made a card! ;-) Cardstock is Bazzill, but everything else (patterned paper, felt, transparent label, stickpins, rub-ons, brads, trim and ribbon) is all Fancy Pants. Sorry for the crappy photo but it was raining outside so I had to take this one inside.
Lastly, I have a Valentine's Day wall hanging that I made also using CMK's awesome February kit. I altered an unfinished double layered wood heart from the craft store, but you could cut out a heart from chipboard, too.
I am going to an all day, 12-hour crop next Saturday (the 21st), and I am sooo excited! I'm going with two friends, so it should be a lot of fun! Hopefully i'll have a lot to share when I return (oh, who am I kidding? I won't have that much to share, lol).
Hope that everyone is having a great week and that you all get some extra hugs and kisses from your loved ones on Saturday!
