**My NEW Banner & Layouts GALORE**

Did you SEE my new banner??? My GREAT and oh so LOVELY pal, Dena did it!
I'm telling you..RUN do not walk to Create My Keepsake to get this July kit! I had so much fun with it! It's just gorgeous! :) Here's everything I made with it:

This is just a little something I made using a wooden Prima box I had that held my velvet Prima flowers. I painted it black, then used green crackle paint, added the kit papers, embellies, my pics and did a teeny bit of stitching plus added a few more buttons. I love how this turned's going on my scrappy desk :)

Just a little "hi" to ya!

My GORGEOUS girl :) Those eyes!! THAT smile! :) I LOVE her!

AWW!!! Here's my little man! Shaypher when he was 6 (and up there today at 16)
Is he NOT a CUTE kid? :) Gotta love those dimples!

(I had to remove this layout for a back soon!)

So can ya tell I had fun with the kit? GO get one...SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!
