October Kit Work for My Creative Scrapbook

The October kit from My Creative Scrapbook is AWESOME!!! I love the Bo Bunny papers and all the flowers, bling, and ribbons! The chipboard alphas are "sparkly". Head on over and check out the kits for October....there are several to chose from! This is my adorable granddaughter, Helen Grace. She can be such a girly girl...and in the next second, she's just as rough and tumble as her brother and her cousins! I edited this photo in Picnik - which is an online photo editing program I use sometime. The bling is by a fabulous new company called Zva Creations. I used lots of rubons, too! I shaped the curved edge of the flowered paper with my Bo Bonny flex ruler....that thing is really cool! I've probably had it for a year and just forget about using it!
Just a little "happy" card! I used scraps from my layouts to create this card. I inked each of the squares and glued them to the front of a prefolded card. The "hello" is some of the felt alphas that came with the October Main kit. I used my zig pen for the dotted edges of each block. The flower I cut from the patterned paper and pop dotted it on top of the flower on that square.
This is our home. We moved to this house in March 2005 after living at the "old" house for 24 years! Do you have any idea how much "STUFF" you can accumulate in 24 years? Geesh! It took forever to sort all the junk! Got rid of tons of stuff expecting our new home to be very neat and orderly. The new house looked bare for a while (considering it was a good bit bigger than our old house)...but, wouldn't you know it...I've managed to fill it up and it only took me 3 years! The title "blessings" was a chipboard title that I painted and then I outlined the letters. The quote and the red scalloped border are sticker borders that came with the kit. The word "home" is actually stickers! I backed them with black cardstock. The way they are designed, they look like they are 3-D, but they really are stickers and they also came with the kit! I loved the flowers, rubons and bling that are in the kit this month!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by! As always...I love your post away!!!
Hugs! Susan
