May Mystery Kit!!

Another month gone by means another Mystery Kit!! I love these things! They are always filled with fabulous coordinating product. Everything you need to make a project and often there are tons of leftovers!!

May's kit was again fantastic!! It featured product from the Delight line by Fancy Pants.

Here is a look at it before....

Papers & embellishments may vary slightly.

There were 9 incredible projects completed this month and if you pop over to the gallery you can get a peek at them all. The members of the forum voted and selected a winner.

A great big congratulations to Melanie James who won with this gorgeous layout!!

Just a reminder that Mystery Kits come out on the last Sunday of the month and are in limited supply. They never seem to last too long so stop in and get yours soon! June's kits are already flying off the shelves!!

Crop for the Cure Update

Yesterday's Crop was a success and again I have to say a great big thank you to Scrapping Turtle for spending the day with us. You ladies know I love you and think the world of you. It really means a lot that you share this day with us!!

Such a support the Turtle is to us!! Not only did they provide us with something for the goodie bags but they also hosted a fantastic make & take which was incredibly cute but I totally did not get a picture of it. Just take my word for it, okay!!

There was also a special limited edition Crop for the Cure Mystery Kit that was full (as always) with some fabulous product! Several ladies purchased this kit to complete a layout. Prior to leaving last night, the projects were all voted on and a winner was chosen. The prize - a crop party for 6!!

Lisa Elliot won with this fantastic layout about her daughter Noelle. I have to share this story too since I love it. Noelle spent an afternoon selling water bottles at the end of their driveway. And what did she do with the money she earned?!?! She send her Mom with a $20 bill to donate to the cause. How fabulous is that?!?!

A shout out to the Turtle ladies though who donated to our cause $3.00 from the sale of each Mystery Kit! So generous of you! Thank you so much!!

And now here are a few Turtle-y pictures from our day! I can't believe I did not get a picture of myself with Hannah. What's better than me with Hannah though? Hannah with Baby Jack of course!!

Lori & I

Hannah & super cute Baby Jack

Here is my layout using the flower folder. I embossed the bird (and then inked it) and my label die.



I cut out the flowers using my QK nesting dies and then embossed. I also embossed the journaling tag.
