Magpie Club Sept REVEAL and KIT GIVEAWAY!!! (kit photos added)

This post is coming to you a little late, but it is here nonetheless!  I want to share with you the three pages I did with the Magpie Club September kit!

First of all, I LOVE bright and bold colors, and this kit is packed with them!  Plus, some of my favorite manufacturers: Crate, Cosmo, and Pink Paislee (plus lots of others!!)

You can CLICK HERE to see the full contents of the kit.

So this was the first page I did and I have used this black and white striped paper before in tiny quantities on previous pages, but I thought I'd try it out as a background, and I love the way it turned out!

This is my mom and Charlotte and I. Charlotte wanted us to all paint our "neals" (that how she says it...:) so we all painted them the same color. She is so cute when you tell her to sit still and blow on them to dry.  But no matter how many coats I put on, it always seems to come off the next day.

I fussy cut all the trees and flowers from the My Little Shoebox paper.  Yes, it took a while!  :)



 The heart is cut from the Bella Blvd paper and I added some glossy accents, which I haven't used on a page in a while...gotta get back into that cause I love the stuff...


This page is a little bit more of a simple design for me, but it was the story I was focused on.  My mom got Charlotte into the habit of closing her eyes in anticipation of a surprise, so when we are playing and she wants to give me something, she says "Close eyes mamma, close eyes".  But lately she has been messing up "ah-pu" (open) eyes and close eyes, so she tells me to "ah-pu" them when she really wanted me to close them.  Also, she has been closing her eyes when she has been naughty...as if we can't see her anymore!  :)




OK, I totally messed up the stitching on this circle!   I tried to cover it up by adding additional circles that were messy, but now they all just look messy.  But I will embrace the imperfection...



Again, a lot more fussy cutting on this banner.  I think I could cut my LO time in half if I didn't do fussy cutting....


And lastly, when I saw this "hopscotch" paper with all the number on the Echo Park paper, the first idea that popped into my head was a "10 things" list. So I wrote a list of 10 things I wanted to remember about my little guy right now....(like those little toes...aren't they adorable??!)



When I made my class kits for the last class I taught at my LSS, I punched out some squares from some patterned papers and saved the "negatives".  So I used them as masks on some navy cardstock and sprayed with white ink.  The word "You" are some Studio Calico wood veneer letters that I misted yellow.


Oh, and MORE fussy cutting of all the numbers out of the paper!  :)



Well thanks for looking at my layouts, and now for a GIVEAWAY!!!

I'm gonna make you work just a bit for this one.  I am giving away the entire August Magpie Club Kit!!!!!!!








 
Here's what happened: I waited and waited for my kit in July, and it never came.  I had emailed Tara about it and she said she had sent it already.  Well it finally got here...ON AUGUST 1!!  It was postmarked sometime in early July....the box was ripped and crushed and it had obviuosly gotten wet because the writing was all smeared.  The condition was just awful.  But all the contents inside were in a plastic bag, and there wasn't a wrinkle in any of the papers!!!   But by then I had just had the baby, and just wasn't going to get to it, PLUS, Septemebers kit (the one featured above) was due to arrive soon, anyways!! 

SOOOOOO......I am going to give this kit away because I am just not going to get to kit.  But what I would like you to do is this: 

1).  Visit the following ladies blogs.  They are on the DT for Magpie Club.  Leave them a comment.  It can be on a post related to anything, but just leave them some love.  And I GUARANTEE that you will be inspired somewhere on one (if not all!) of these blogs.



2).  Come back here when you have done that and leave me a comment, too! 

I will draw a random winner on September 19th to win the kit!!

Thanks so much!!
