Birthday Party Day #19

It's Monday.  It's Spring Break.  'Nuf said?

This little piece should open your eyes enough to get the creative juices going though, created by Kristi Bergin-Smith, Guest Designer for March.  You can see more on her blog HERE

"The crocheted piece was so beautiful I wanted to use it on a special project. I bought this 3D frame for our family picture and added a few pieces from the March kit before I framed it. I sewed the crocheted piece to the acrylic tag and then added the pretty green button (all from the March kit). The green foil letters are Thickers from "The Pantry." The two chipboard stars are also from the kit and inked black."  ~Kristi 

I love all the things Kristi did with her March kit!  Thanks Kristi for an awesome month of inspiraiton!!

You can get your first full look at April's kits HERE.  All the kits are filled with much needed Spring color!  So needed!!  I can't wait to get see what the designers have created.  I've seen the cards.  And Oh. My. Goodness.  Too cute!  Don't forget to grab your add-ons for the April kits HERE; save an automatic 10% until April 1st.

Thanks to Briel and Jessica and a few others whose name escape me right now for the notes on how this month's challenges have kept you rolling!  I love to hear that.  This month, I have skidded to a stop, creatively, so I'm loving that there are others just cruising along!

Finally, today's Birthday Challenge.  Birthdays are about the milestones and the memories.  And if we're lucky we capture them in pictures.  Then we set to planning the layouts.  Admit it, there are moments you capture that you plan the layout in your head the minute you click the shutter release!  Today create a layout using multiple photos - more than six and none more than 4x6 in size.

I'm off to deal with laundry and the never-closed-rotating-door-room that is my kitchen when everyone is home!  Why I bother going in to straighten it only to watch the next child come down to destroy it, is beyond me.  Sheesh.

Have a Happy Monday and beginning to Spring Break.

Oh!  And look for the kick off to the Birthday sale starting tomorrow - it's a doozy!  30, 40, 50 and even 75% off all sorts of goodies.  Look for Scrapper's Boxes and Load Me Up Embellishment Boxes!  Such great deals you'll want to limber up before you hit the site!!

I'll add my voice to the "you keep me rolling" chorus. Thanks Lori!!
Also, I checked out the sneak peaks (saw them on FB) and had to close the page to stop myself from buying EVERYTHING. Sigh. No purchases other than glue allowed for a bit! Got to get my stash in check!!

Hi Lori! Can't wait for that sale! On another note I have been trying to email you - I've tried the admin and lori emails both - and it gets returned to me! HELP! Is there another email? Thanks!

Awesome! Lovin' those kits (as always)! Looking forward to the sale, although I'm trying hard to stick to just buying kits lately! :)

Deanna said...

Not only are you challenges helping me move through my photos, but they are also using up my stash. I made so much progress (LOL) that I'm back to autoship AND I've greatly enjoyed your birthday sales this month!

Now all I need is for the sun to just come out for a bit while I'm home so I can get a good picture of my LOs...
