March Sneaky Sneaks!

Wanna know what the March kit at My Scrapbook Nook is gonna be?????
Hu Hu do ya?????

It's just the newest release from Crate....Emma's Shoppe!!!
I know the DT is SUPER DUPER excited about this one.
We've been drooling all over it since Crate started leaking peaks.
I'ts gonna be fabulous!
Here are just a few pieces of the pie ;)

I've also got a few more layouts from the February kit to share with you.
I must say....I really loved how this one turned out.
That peacock feather kinda scared me a little, but I LIKED IT!
and knew I had to use it.  I'm not a big flower/bouquet kind of girl but
I knew I had to make this one work for me.

At some point I remembered these pictures of my grandpa and me...that early eighties look seemed to fit just right ;)  We always shared our birthdays...he was the 6th, I am the 5th.  I had lots of bits from the kit I wanted to incorporate here.  The vellum (butterflies), the rubons, the stickers and the feather.  There are actually only 2 small pieces of pattern paper in here.

When I get my kits I obviously have a color scheme to work with so I'll go through and find pictures that I think will work well.  I came across these ones of Samantha from a few years back and they totally make me laugh!  Her hair always did this on the trampoline!  always.

I pretty much just used bits and pieces of papers from the kit, kept it simple and fun.  Loved the ledger rubons and I just used small bits of them at the top and bottom of my page for a little distressing effect.

Thanks again for looking and check back tomorrow and I'll share with you some sneaks for some upcoming kits at the Nook....good stuff I tell ya ;)

Your new kit looks fun. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
