So we have been busy creating with it and want to show you!

whoop whoop!!
Entries will close on Sunday, October 17th at 11:59pm CST.

Winners will be announced on Monday, October 18th both on the
KI Blog and the individual blogs.
*****
So do you want to see what I made??
{regardless, I am going to show you}
:)
The Over the Rainbow collection is right up my alley: bright colors, cute fonts, border stickers, subtle patterns on the paper...I love it!!
Since I kind of have Christmas on the brain for some reason (72 shopping days left!), I used some of the new stuff to catch up on a Christmas layout.
The Over the Rainbow collection has some fun themed embellishments but the patterned papers are not themed at all.
That makes them very versatile and I love that!
So I combined the red, green, and white-ish patterned papers with new tattoos (rub-ons), fun border stickers, and snowflake puffy stickers to make this Christmas page.
By the way, I am totally addicted to making these collages using my Walgreens photo account!
{thanks for the tip Carolyn!}
{I am sure you can use Snapfish and Shutterfly to do this same thing. Or you can probably do it in Photoshop but I am not smart enough to figure that out}
*****
Since I am being so ambitious to get my Christmas cards made, I made a card out of some of the scraps I had lying around after I finished that layout.
Be sure to hop on over to Caroline Ikeji and Shannon Tidwell's blogs today!
And if you are just now getting in on the blog hop, make sure to check out Kelly Noel, Jamie Waters, and Dusti Nakamura's blogs also!
{they all posted earlier this week}
Don't forget to leave a comment on the
KI blog too!
On Thursday Jennifer Johner and Lisa Dickinson will be posting.
And on Friday you can check out posts from Jennifer Pebbles, Amy Licht, and Staci Etheridge.

Have fun!!

Another awesome layout! When you learn how to make collages in PS, please show me. :) I use Walgreen's 8x10 collage option a lot. I especially like it when they have them for free! :)

Fun! Thanks!

Wendy said...

This collection looks like so much fun!

Shel said...

If you have Google Picasa (which is free) you can make the collages and print them out at your favorite photo place. I create collages with 4 pics on a 5x7, print them at winkflash and it's cheaper than printing wallets.

I really like the Enchanting line! The colors are so...ME!

Love the subtle patterns and the colors and the border stickers. Great new line!
