Two Kits Down

Not only did I managed to finish the kit that Maddie chose the other day, I also got another one finished....very satisfying!

In the Glitz, Love Nest kit there was one whole sheet of patterned paper, one sheet of cardstock and a few leftover bits of paper and embellishments.  I managed to get two layouts out of it!

The first one uses a picture of Maddie being a bridesmaid, I think it was all too much for her :)
I only had relatively small bits of paper to work with so made some flowers:
And I jazzed up some Thickers (I saw this when I was blog hopping and can't remember where so, unfortunately, can't give credit):
I can't show you all of the other layout I did as it's for a sketch group I'm in and the big reveal isn't until next week, I'll show you a sneak though :)
The next kit chosen by Maddie is from Gotta Craft and it's Lime Twist:

I've only used a little bit of this kit so I've got my work cut out for me if I want to get it used up by next week!
I've been having a lovely, lazy weekend so far and this evening I'm off to see Paul for a few days....I'm so excited :)

Hope you're having a good weekend

Love that bling on the white. It might have been mine that you saw it on as I jazzed up some cheap foam letters from The Range on one of my recent ones. LOVE that next kit but I'm a sucker for anything with lime and definitely for anything MME!

Yes Lisa-Jane it was your blog, thank you for reminding me. I will change the post when I'm back on my PC and not using my phone and will definately put a link to your blog there. It was a fantastic idea and thank you for sharing it

Go for it Jo, you've done some beautiful LOs so far, and that kit is lush, so you should get inspiration. Thanks for coffee this morning - lovely to catch up.
