happy weekend!

i hope everyone had a great weekend. i went to the 'rents to hang with them and my very good friend louise visited and the girls scrapped while the boys played. it was so good to see "aunt weezie"! and to scrap...i think i got them hooked on Core'dinations! woot woot!

here are a few projects i did for Serendipity this month. The Just Enough Please kit is jam-packed with Collage Press, October afternoon, thickers, WRMK rubons and Basic Grey buttons. FUN! i can't get over how kristen combines different companies together and makes it work so well. i just love kits that mix and match product.

I have 7 projects from this kit. i won't slap all of them on you in one post...here is an "altered item" i did and a layout, and a card...

before ..... {these fun little guys came in the kit...aren't they cuuuute? they are from Cook Bookin} when i saw this packaging i had to run with it...it's the first thing i made...


after........




some of the Collage Press Knave of Hearts goodies in the kit:


at the crop andrea and i went to last week, she cut this out for me from her Cricut with the Damask print.....LOVE it. told you that girl can work a cricut.


{cork letters NOT in kit}


and, again, andrea let me use this cuuuute cuttle bug folder and i embossed it with my cuttlebug on the Core'dinations Cardstock whitewash and sanded it.

Too dang cute! Seriously...that jar card...oh my! Such a pretty layout! Love the circles and the Damask print.

The letters on my layout that you asked about are by Heidi Swapp! I've had them for quite a while. If you look at the sheet of chipboard alphas it looks like a beigy ledger sheet. Then I took a dark pen and went around the edges of the letters. Hope that helps!
