"SWEETEST THING"

The gorgeous October Kit from Swirlydoos !!




Welcome to our October kit reveal and Blog Hop Party!!


Here is the sketch for the "Sweet Things" kit provided for us by our very own Begahunna!.

 



And here is my take on it:


Here are some of the other layouts I created from this kit:

 

 

 

 

I love all the papers, embellies, flowers, doors, ribbon, and everything else in this kit.  When we use a kit, we always have a favorite one that we do, and this is my favorite one that I did this month.  As some of you know, my mom and dad passed away a few months ago.  Such a hard time for me.  I really wanted to scrap this picture of them and make it special, worthy of framing.  Just was waiting for the right kit to come along to do it.  Well, this was the kit!! I am really happy with how it turned out, and yes, it is in a frame!!

 


Now on to the Blog Hop party....
