Scrap That! Nov Kit Reveal and Blog Hop

Hello ladies.
Its the end of October! Time for a reveal day from Scrap That! for their gorgeous GORGEOUS November "Putting on the Glitz" kit featuring the Glitz Vintage Blue collection. These papers are to die for beautiful- in fact the entire kit is divine!

As you all know by now, you have jumped into the Blog Hop which starts at the Scrap That! Chat blog, so if you didnt start there, then head back and jump in!

If you have just arrived here from Glitz Design’s blog you are in the correct place!
Today I’m going to share with you my project using the Scrap That! November “Putting on the Glitz” Kit. Its with a heavy heart that I say this- but I have decided that its time for me to step down from the ST team. Life has taken a few turns, other new things have started...its time for a change. Its been a pleasure having designed for ST since the moment they started. Thank you Lori! With having said that...here are my final projects....





















Check out the gorgeous blooms- the vibrant blue one is gorgeous! St kits never fail to include the latest beautiful flowers.














Here is my second project with this kit. Showcasing a wedding photo of mine. Also included in the kit were a few My Minds Eye papers. I'm not a big fan of yellow but these papers will totally make you fall in love instantly!





















The touches of glitter on the pages are perfect! Love the bling we got that perfectly coordinates with these papers.














Also included in the kit was this divine piece of Resin embellishment. You can easily paint it, mist it, I chose to just ink the edges, I loved the finish it alredy had so this piece is gorgeous as is.





















Lastly, here she is. My last project **SNIFFLE SNIFFLE**.
This was made using the Glitz papers.






















Thank you for stopping by! Next stop on the hop is Lisa’s blog.

New Etsy in town...and she's MINE!!! ~Flourishing Creations~

So as you have noticed, I have been MIA from my blog for the past few months, other than the Scrap That! kit Club Reveals.

...well it's because I have been spending all my time and energy on building up my baby...

...she's an ETSY SHOP!
~Flourishing Creations~
Totally feel giddy saying that! I debated it for so long and took the jump with the love and support from my husband. I sell hair accessories for all ages, from newborns to adults, I also carry bridal hair accessories.

Grab a cup of hot cocoa, a warm blanket, snuggle up and take a few minutes to take a little wander thru my shop.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

((HUGS))

Here is my first layout which features the Prima Romantique papers. {Pardon the horrible picture quality, it's been storming here for the last week an dhave had no good light to photo with.}
Check out the fabric flowers in the bottom left corner, made those out of organza using the Glubers included in the kit. Loved using it, made it so easy to create those blooms.
We also got...my fave...a bottle of gold liquid pearls.





















For my 2nd layout, its showcasing the IOD Provencial papers also included in the kit. We also received some cream lace in the kit, which you could subtly see in this layout as well as my last.





















And my last project using this gorgeous kit!!

Its of my little man. I felt these papers matched this photo PERFECTLY. Lots of liquid pearl work on this one. I know, I know, blooms on a boy layout, but its because they were sooo pretty, I couldnt help but to use them. As long as he doesnt see this page when he gets older, it'll be alright!



















Well that its from me today!
