Hello everyone! I'm so excited to be a part of the Kiwi Lane Blog Hop this month. There are so many talented designers bringing you inspiration today. And to celebrate, I have a fun giveaway for you! Read on to find out how to enter...

One random winner will win a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane shop! The winner will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, Feb. 13.

Here's the whole list of participating blogs...
Now for my project. The Kiwi Lane Designer Templates are one of my absolute favorite scrapbooking tools -- I use them on almost every layout or project I create. And I was so glad to work with the Paradise accessory template set and Sweetheart accessory template and this month! Here's what I created...

I love how this turned out! I used the Kate & Co. collection from My Mind's Eye plus these Kiwi Lane templates:
  • Sweetheart 2T
  • Paradise 3, 6
  • Strips 1", 1/2"
  • Paisley Place 2A, 2B
I started by framing out my page...

Then, I used the scallop shell (Paradise 3) to create that fun yellow border strip...I just traced the shell multiple times to create a unique scallop border with lots of impact.

Then, it was just a matter of tracing, cutting, inking, and layering. The layout came together super quick to show off this photo of my boys that I love...

I love this huge gorgeous flower -- that Paradise 6 template is just beautiful when layered up. I can see using this for home decor projects too. It's a great size...
