More from the April KOM from the Flying Unicorn!

Have I told you yet how much I LOVE this kit??  LOL, I love the diversity of the kit, the soft romantic colors paired with the masculine burlap look papers from Glitz, makes for such a great kit that has so many possibilites.   I have done 9 layouts with this kit!!  Here is my latest layout.This is the 3rd layout I've done with the Glitz French Kiss and Pretty in Pink papers.  Have to say that French Kiss is one of my favorite paperlines from CHA winter 2012.   I made the rosettes, I love using those on a masculine page.  One thing to note, you do not need the mini rosette die to make smaller rosettes, simply trim off part of the diecut from the straight edge side and cut off a few segments and presto, you have a mini rosette.  They look great stacked as I have done here on two of the rosettes.  I love that look!  The Dusty Attic piece and Petaloo Cantebury vine spray are from my stash as are the key, wheel and button.  Everything else is from the kit.  I cut the letters from cardstock and popped them up to give them a stronger appearance.  I bundled up some string to make the string bow, I like how that looks!

 Oh gosh, I almost forgot the most important thing!!! I used that FABULOUS sketch of Shona's to make this LO!!!  We have had a lot of fun teasing Shona about her sketch!  It was never intended to be shown as a sketch, but was a quick drawing Shona did for her own use.  She made one fatal error, she sent it to Alda, oops!!  That totally boomaranged and now this famous sketch is supporting a sketch challenge at the Flying Unicorn this month.  And wow, the LOs done with this sketch are great!

  1. Maggi, whenever I see you post a vintage photo/layout, I can't get here fast enough to see what you've created. You always bring the subject to life with your art and stories. Another striking page, beautiful elements. Ha ha, love the Shona mishap and how it turned into a triumph.
