Hi!

Welcome to Mama's Sanity and the August Kiwi Lane Blog Hop! You should have hopped here from Kiwi Lane's site.  In case you get lost along the way, here is the hop order:

  10. Kristy Lee http://lifescrapped.blogspot.com

If you have been a follower of my blog, you know I love Kiwi Lane (and if you aren't a follower, I would love it if you would click that little button on the right!).  Their templates make creating a scrapbook page so easy.  For today's hop, I used the entire collection of Tiny Tags templates to make my page. 

Here is how I framed out my page:


And after a little cutting, a little sewing, and some embellishment, here is how my page came out.


I love the fun mix of patterns and embellishments from July's Gossamer Blue's kit.  They played so nicely with my Kiwi Lane templates!

Now, here is the important part...make sure you leave a comment on this blog (and everyone else's) by 11:59 MT on Sunday, Aug 4th, for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane store.  The winner will be announced on Thursday, August 8th.

I will also be picking 1 comment from my blog to win a little blog candy too. 

Good luck!  Now head over to Elizabeth Hellum at www.elizabethmcarney.com for your next stop on our hop.

Cheers!
Kristy
