Sharing a Few

Here are 2 layouts I don't think I've shared yet.



My September Layouts with We R Memory Keepers Show and Tell Line

That is such a long title for this post! lol    But it accurately says what this month's layouts were created with!

 And before I share the layouts, did you know that is now  Woohoo!  Martha, the owner, is openning a brick and mortar store in Long Beach on Studebakker and Los Coyotes diagnal.  Soon, very soon, you will be able to touch and feel everything in her store before you buy it.  How exciting is that!

So, in order to stream line everything, she merged the real store with the online kit club and made one new name.

Here is a new blinkie for the new site!



If you are a follower of me or Martha or the store's blog and you post this blinkie on your blog, facebook, Willow Traders, wherever you can, Martha will entry you into a RAK! Leave me a comment if you post the blinkie somewhere.

Now, on to my September layouts. 

All of these pictures are from the 2009 school year, not this year.  I did these layouts right before school actually started here.

Everything in this one from the kit except the splatters of Glimmer Mist.

I layed the shaped paer upside down on the orange cardstock and misted around it.  This gave the cardstock the image of the shaped paper without having to use the paper on just one layout!  This is Wes at the start of 1st grade last year.

I want Kylie it write on the lined paper, I just haven't got her to do it yet.  Everything from the kit except the brown letters spelling "of"
Standing in front of the garage door before school started on the first day.  We had no idea at this time that we would move twice during this school year!  Crazy.

I tried painting in the apples in the sticky felt boarder. I wish I would have painted first and laid the felt over the top.  It would have been neater.  Oh well.  I used a mixture of crackle paint and glimmer mist.  I also used stickles for the stem and leaves. And here is the shaped paper that I misted the back of on the previous layout.

And then I told Kylie I would help her dress up her plain binder. This is what we created:

I think it turned out pretty cute and she LOVES it! Makes this momma happy!

And finally, here are 2 cards I made with the kit.




Isn't this kit fun?  I love it.

It also came with this paper:
 See that one on the right?  The blocks?  I cut that all apart and glued them into a little ABC book for Wade.  I gave it to him today and he was so excited.  He kept talking about his "special" book!  So cute!

Anyway, I hope you love this kit too (hopefully you got it!).  Its so fun.  And I hope you come check out the new site,!
