I'm Guest Designer for Funtoola's Kit Club!!

I was asked to be the Guest Designer this month over at Funtoola's Kit Club.  I was so thrilled to recieve this beautiful kit to work with!   Gorgeous Prima papers, premium blooms and embellishments and even an intricate Prima stamp and Dusty Attic Chipboard products in the kit!  You will LOVE this kit!  

I used this photo I had of Meagan playing in the sand at the beach when she was about 2 years old.  It made me think of Winnie the Pooh and his honey pot.  I used a quote from from a Winnie the Pooh book that struck me as very sweet .....

"Well, said Pooh, what I like best,
and then he had to stop and think.
Because although eating honey was a 
very good thing to do,
there was a moment before you begin to eat it
which was better than when you were,
but he didn't know what it was called."
~ A.A. Milne

I cut the bookpage design from the patterned paper and layered an extra piece of paper and cardstock to create this little 'book' embellishment....
There are so many beautiful blooms in this kit, among them are the hydrangia blooms and some lovely adhesive pearl accents, pretty ribbons and lace too!...
I divided up the Dusty Attic Vine and used part on this page and part on another.  For this one I painted the vine Ivy green, accented with some brown ink and outlined with some pretty green glitter glue included in the kit....

Another page I made with this kit, I went with the rich burgundy papers and embellishments.  I took this picture of Chloe and her best friend Peyton with Zoe when she was just 2 months old.  These two girls have been best of friends since they were 3 years old.
All the embellishments you see on the page are all from this kit....Prima Crystal flourishes, lace, pearls, Velvety blooms & buttons and of course the lovely Dusty Attic Vine.  Here are some close-up pic's of the page....


....And finally I made one more page from this beautiful kit.  I cut one of the papers with a bracket frame template. 
 TIP:  I save unusually shaped die cut papers and trace them onto a plain piece of paper (I like to use the plain white 12x12 papers that come in the sleeves of my page protectors in my albums.)
All of the embellishments on this page are all from the kit including the pretty key, the ribbons and lace, the diamond and pearl bloom and the Prima Gate stamp.  Here are a few close-up photos of the above page...


Take it from me, this kit is a beauty and a lot of fun to work with and an incredible deal!  Check out Funtoola's website for more information on this kit.  Join in the fun, in the galleries and forums.  Cindy Johnson, the lovely owner of Funtoola's will make you feel warm and welcome!
