ScrapCity Reveals #3 & Happy Birthday MOM!!

First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOM!! We went to see her yesterday! She is 75 years old! Woohoo!! I hope today is wonderful!


Next, we have so much going on at ScrapCity this month. The Creative Team exchanged kits. We made up two kits, and sent one to another person on the Creative Team. So, we used our own kit, we received a kit, and we received goodies from our February sponsor! This is the amazing kit that I received.


I received my kit from Janice Nielson. I received this kit from Janice on January 17th, I emailed her about how much I LOVED it, and she told me that she was very happy that I really liked it. It was shocking for all of us at ScrapCity when we found out that Janice had passed away on January 21st. We are still so sad and shocked at this huge loss. Our reveals take place on the 5th of the month, and I created my layouts on the 4th, because I had such a hard time using the kit. It made me very sad to use it. I just love the kit, and it warms my heart thinking about Janice picking out something very girly for me to use! She was so excited when I received it! We all still miss Janice very much.


This is the first layout that I created. You can't see it too well, but in the bottom photo, Jessica is standing next to her Junior High School locker! These American Craft papers are so gorgeous, and I love the Thickers! The ribbon is gorgeous too. I love it all, and it was so fun to create this page.


This is the second layout I created, and I used the fantastic Sketch #5 at 52 Sketches! I love the Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers! I cut the huge scallop circle on my Cricut Expression. Once again, love those Thickers!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!!
