Kit 'n' Kaboodles September Kit Reveal

The summer months can get pretty busy for me as I always do a lot of canning and freezing fresh food from the garden. I put up about 50 quarts of green beans, 150 ears of corn, a few batches of blackerry and raspberry preserves, 30 some odd jars of peach salsa, some sliced peaches for cobblers, and some tomato juice. I am done for now...until next month when I start on apples. Then I'll be making homemade applesauce and apple butter, and I might even freeze some apple pie fillings too. So, you can see why I needed to take a little break from scrapping, but I am happy to report that I have returned to the design team at Kit 'n' Kaboodles!

The September kit is loaded with goodies from Paper Trunk's Krafty Collection, Girl's Paperie die cuts, The Crafty Chronicle by Donna Salazar, and Smooch Spritz! Here are a couple of layouts that I have created with this kit:
Here's a glimpse of the kit:
I love the versatility of this kit. It is great for both boy and girl pages. I created the paper roses on the first page using The Crafty Chronicle and a technique I saw on Stacy Cohen's blog. I used pink bubble gum and candlelight glimmer mists on that page and on the flowers. That's it for me today! Happy Scrapping!
