Let The Reveal Begin!!!

WOW, this month has come around so fast for me, with organising Birthday celebrations, Completing Design Team obligations and organising a scrapbooking weekend I think I may need the weekend just to recover.  lol I know funny hey, who goes away on a scrapbooking weekend to sleep generally you go there to come back sleep deprived. Well the cars are packed so now just to update my blog and let my friends know that I will faithfully catch up on all your blogs when I get back.

So onto the Cést Magnifique June Kit Reveal

This page uses a picture of my Dad when he was a kid.  I used the secrets paper, because anyone who has had a dog growing up as a kid knows how many secrets you tell your loving companion. I also wanted to show some versatility with this kit so that you could also see this range used for a masculine page by pulling out the browns and greens.  The Dusty Attic chippies went beautifully with this masculine theme and  I absolutely loved the way it turned out.

I used the Tim Holtz Cog die on the canvas buttons for the flowers on this page. The Strips cut of from the bottom of the paper read secrets so I decided to incorporate it onto the spools turning them into little banners.
