Exciting to say the least.
I don’t know about you, but when my kits arrive I always tend to have a favorite paper or embellishment.
This month’s Country Lane Kit was no exception as I think I actually gasped when I saw the Sky’s The Limit Layered Ephemera paper from My Mind’s Eye.
So, it’s no wonder that it was the first piece I reached for when I decided to use this photo of my oldest daughter and her friends from Friday’s 8th Grade Formal Dance.
Not wanting to cut it at all I simply trimmed the edges and stitched it to my base paper.

As a fan of banners I created mine from punching several coordinating sheets of paper and adding the paper pieces from the decorative brads set.
Little bits and pieces~
Just when I thought the Gold Daiquiri Thickers from last month’s Melrose Kit could not be topped along came these Dear Lizzy Treasure Thickers. Love them!
My favorite part of this layout is the REAL story behind the flowers.
And believe me it is not as beautiful and serene as this layout portrays.
In fact, I do believe the words were uttered that this was to be the last dance. Ever.
However, all was well in the end.
Isn’t that the best part of scrapbooking?
That we can make all things beautiful.
I hope you will head over to the Noel Mignon blog .
Those girls amaze me.
