If you have been a follower of this blog for awhile, you may remember that I was a part of Kiwi Lane's design team last year.  I love the Kiwi Lane girls and was happy to be asked to be a part of this month's hop.  It was fun to play with my templates again...and remember how fast it is to scrap with them.

Here is the how I laid out my templates to create my page:


And after pulling a lot of fun papers from my Lily Bee warehouse box from Christmas time, I set about to put together this "Love"ly layout (can you tell I had love and hearts on my mind when I made this page?!?).  I used quite a few templates in this page: Sweethearts 2 and 2T, Rings 4, Abbie Road 1A, 1B, 2A.  The transparent qualities of the templates are great if you want to highlight specific words on a paper...as I did here on the We R Family paper.


I couldn't stop with just a layout.  I want to make a quick card as well.  Here I used Sweetheart 2T with some My Mind's Eye's Cupid's Arrow paper and tag to make a fast card for Valentine's Day (and seen on Practical Scrappers too).


Now, it is time to hop over to Gail Owens' blog.  Remember - comment on everyone's posts for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane store.  All comments made before Sunday, February 9th at 11:59 pm MST will be in the running!  Winner to be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, February 13th.
