**** You and Me Kit ****

Hello everyone!! I have been making a LO using the Kit from CTMH that has been specialy designed to celebrate "National Scrapbooking Month".  I had the perfect pics for this kit. To me it was almost like this kit was made for these pictures. I love the stamps that come in the kit and I think are now my faves!!
Here is the full LO now I added some more goodies to the LO I just had to have some flowers and Prima bling to me LO are bare without them!! LOL

Oh and I forgot to add also butterflies! Lisa G. Has a wonderland of them on the Swirlydoos forum found here they are totally awesome!! Just print and cut them out and dress them up if you like. I added diluted create a shade pearl paint to mine. I diluted it with alcohol. Gives a nice glimmer to the butterflies. Speaking of Swirlydoos I recently joined them! I have been stalking that site way too long!! LOL So I took the plunge and did it.

Here is the Left side and below is the Right side.

Oh and I also added some vintage looking ribbon. This kit comes with the wide brown and white ribbon. I just had to add some of my flair to it. It is already set up for anyone to do. It has a guided work sheet and you can follow it set by step and still wind up with a master piece with out even breaking a sweat! Now for a bit of close ups.

Me and my mom made the 2 biggest flowers she did the begonia and I did the peonie. I thought that they looked awesome together so what the heck, I added both! I folded some large hot pink daisies in forths to tuck between them and one to the side. I did this to kinda repete the look of the flowers in the picture. I think it complemented each other nicely. The purple flowers are prima and so are the small pink and white ones. The Journaling  and tickets are some of the stamps that  come with the kit.

Some Prima pearls cut up in differnet pieces to use through out the LO. One small pack can go along way. The Leaves are also files that Lisa G. put up in the Swirlydoos forum (she is kinda awesome that way!) here.

The "Time to.." tag is also a stamp that comes with the kit as well as the swirls behind it. It also comes with more goodies that I didn't use (because I think I used enough for one LO..LOL). The paper in the kit is cardstock weight which is new to CTMH. I can't wait to see more of this stuff that is what I like. It holds up to destressing very well!! I lightly did some of the papers. But it could defantly hold up to more what ever your hearts desire.

I used the Irresistibles eclectic die cuts alpha on the word "smile" they come in white and you color them what ever color matches the LO. They are pre embossed with designes and there are four differnet designes per letter.. That is a lot of alpha!

The You and Me Kit is only $15 dollars with a $50 or more purchase / Canada is $16.50 with a $55 dollar purchase. Or you can just purchase the kit out right for $34.95 US/ $38.95 Canada. If you like the kit don't forget to hit the shop with me link that takes you right to my online store..

Coming Up next I will be doing a tute on the peonie that I did on this LO (requested by a new friend I made over at Swirlydoos Miss Debbie!) So get out your Cricut and Plantin Cart and stay tuned!! Hope fully tomorrow if the weather holds out for me. If it storms everthing is unplugged!! My golden rule because things get hit really bad were I live!! Hope you all have a wonderful Mothers Day!! See ya soon!
