Good Tuesday Morning!

Good Morning, Fellow Bloggers!! :)

It's my day off & I wanted to share my last project for the Urban Anthology Design Star Contest. For this challenge, we had to create a "kit" & then design 2 projects showcasing the kit we created. :) This was a fun challenge & I was amazed to see the kit I could create from just my own stash!

So... Here is my very own kit... "Subtle Elegance" ~ When I looked at this kit the first thing I notices was the subtleness of the colors, then all the swirls, flourishes, butterflies & flowers made me think “elegant”. Hence the "Subtle Elegance" name!

My Kit Includes:

4 ~ 12” x 12” Pieces of Patterned Paper
(1) We R Memory Keepers White Out Collection – Explore Roam (2-sided)
(1) We R Memory Keepers White Out Collection – Explore Meadow (2-sided)

4 ~ 12” x 12” Pieces of Bazzill Cardstock
(2) Flat Broke (brown)

Layout Details: (Individual gems were cut from one of the 3 Best Occasions Adhesive Bling Flourishes.)

And this is Project #2 ~ "My BFF's" Mini Album (Used 100% of kit supplies except for Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Making Memories Paint & various border punches.)The photos in this album were taken by my oldest dd, so the quality is not quite perfect... but they are her friends, so that's what matters.

Project #2 - Details:

So now we all get to wait to see who is chosen for the Urban Anthology DT! :) I don't expect to make it, but I really enjoyed these challenges & stepping outside of my comfort zone! Good Luck to all who played along!
