february 2011 scrappy chics kit!!!

ooooooooKAY! what a way to start off with a bang! i got my first kit (february 2011) from Scrappy Chics and oooh la la, what a kit!!!

there was literally so much that when i was done with my layouts, i went back over them to add more. i felt like i wasn't doing it justice, even though i made three layouts!

here's a quick view of the kit:
go here to order a kit for yourself!
better hurry, january sold out FAST!!! :)

here's the first layout i made using the kit, my favorite out of the three.
it's called "tu es ravissante" meaning "you are ravishing"
and i thought it was fitting because (to me, at least)
my daughter IS ravishing,
and she's taking french this year, and is loving it!
this kit was perfect for that...

to make the black doilies go a little farther, i cut them in half to use only part of one on this layout...

this layout is about my senior prom - called "lasting love." :) that's my hubby and i in those pics, twenty three whopping years ago.

i used pop dots to make the title
(cut from one of the sheets of patterned paper)
stand out...
i've had this photo of me sitting around a loooong time - the style of photograph and the colors made it a natural to use with this kit.

can you tell i'm a big fan of hand-stitching lately?
i have one other little project that didn't get done in time for the reveal of the february kit, but as soon as i get it done, i'll add it to my blog - it's kinda cool. :)
thanks, melinda at Scrappy Chics, for the awesome opportunity to design for you; and thanks to everyone for looking at my stuff...
make sure you check out the blog for scrappy chics when you're buying your kit, too!
