Scrap That! September Kit Reveal & Blog Hop

Hey everyone!

Welcome to the reveal of Scrap That!'s September "Birdsong" kit, as well as our great blog hop!
If you have just arrived here from Ivana's Blog you are in the correct place! If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog for the blog hop order and links.
Today I’m going to share with you my project using the Scrap That! Exclusive Pion Design “Birdsong” Kit.

Here is my first layout.

The papers in this kit are beautiful, shabby chic and soooo gorgeous, from PION Design.





















Here is a closeup, beautiful pearl swirl bling, included in the kit.
















As for my 2nd layout(my fave). Lots of layers and flowers. The photo is of my husband and I during our engagament photo session. Love this picture!






















We also received a bottle of silver liquid pearls, that stuff is amazing! Great, quick way to add dimension to your layout.
















Check out the gorgeous Dusty Attic Music border{DA0351} that comes in the kit.
As well as the beautiful Prima blooms! Who isnt a sucker for Prima blooms?!
















Lastly, I created a card using my scraps. I had made a 3rd layout, but are you ready for this?! READY????...my dog ate it! No seriously, my stinkin' dog demolished my project which the cats mustve knocked off the table. =( Never thought I would use that excuse as an adult..but my time has come. lol So it left me to create a card in place of the layout. =)
