Making Pretty Even Prettier

Hello! I am so glad that you stopped by today! I had the pleasure of having some crafty fun with some gorgeous Jinger Adams paper goodness as well my awesome Kiwi Lane designer templates this week and created a layout that was just too sweet! 

 I hope that you will stop by the Kiwi Lane blog today to see in detail how I used the Spook Alley border template. Stop by the Jinger Adams Facebook page too! Let her know that Kiwi Lane sent you! Until next time...

August Blog Hop with Kiwi Lane

Can you believe it is August already?? I am still wondering where June went! One of the best things about August is that there is another Kiwi Lane Blog Hop to participate in! Hooray!

Don't forget that a random winner from ONE of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment and will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, August 8th.

There were some fun designer templates used this month! I had the chance to use several templates and particularly enjoyed using my Journey templates on this layout.

I was trying to decide which papers to use for this layout and then I remembered this Sassafras collection from way back when. Talk about perfect for the topic!

I loved how I could use the Journey 2 & 5 templates and create the little monster "badge" on this page! I also used the Sunnybrook Lane templates to create the angled border in the corner.

On the second half of the layout, I liked how the use of the Journey 1 arrow template draws your attention to the title. I also needed just a little something at the top of the page and the Sunnybrook Lane templates worked perfectly there too!

I hope that you enjoyed my little spot along the blog hop today! Next, you should hop along to the über talented Leslie Prinkki's blog >>>HERE<<< and see what awesomeness she has in store!

As always, thanks for stopping! Don't forget to leave a comment to try to win that gift card! I'd love to know: When you hop along on blog hops do you prefer short and concise blog posts or longer more detailed ones? I aim to please :)

Templates Used:
Sunnybrook Lane 1A, 1B, 3A
Bracket 3T
Journey 1, 2, 5, 6
Strip Set 1/2 inch
