Ready for some gardening....

Ever since my daughter was little, she has loved (almost!) everything about nature. We had a flower garden, an herb garden and a vegetable garden. We visited Longwood Gardens and Hershey Gardens regularly. She loves watching and knowing how things grow and believe it or not what they plants are called. When we realized that Epcot had it's own Pavillion almost completely devoted to gardening she was thrilled! Living with the Land is a MUST every trip. And because it's a boat ride... Danny loves it too! It's not often that I get a win...win...win like that! Last trip Erin and I even did the Behind the Seeds Tour... which she loved! Releasing ladybugs and eating cucumber slices and feeding feeding and learning about all those cool plants.... yea, she loved it! My latest creation is inspired by the many years of garden experience I have enjoyed with my wonderful daughter... It has 21 papers.. 2 alphas... and more than 75 elements.
I hope you like it!




and I created this set of Burlap Scraps to go with this kit.
It contained the background and 5 scraps



Save a little extra by bundling these two items up!


Just check out what my CT did with this kit...
















They have some great stuff to share with you so make sure to drop by their blogs! You'll be glad you did!

Here are a few layouts that I created as well for your inspiration...


I used Patty's template from MS Template Challenge 76




and I put together a QuickPage freebie for you...






and as always thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!

the happiest cruise that ever sailed...........

I made this next kit for my son..... It's a Small World has been and continues to be one of his favorite attractions in all of Disney. Even though he can't speak, we can usually read whether or not he likes or doesn't like something that we do. We didn't know how much he really loved this wonderful boat ride until the year we went to Disney and IASW was under reburbishment. As we were walking from Fantasyland to Liberty Square, he began flailing wildly to his right.... My husband and I went right into our "what is he trying to tell us" mode. As we continued to move away from the boarded up attraction, poor Danny began to cry. Not an angry cry but a sad, almost desperate cry. That's when we realized he wanted to ride the one attraction that he couldn't and we couldn't explain it to him! Needless to say... we stayed clear of that area of the park for the rest of our stay and we make it a point to ride it as many times as possible. This kit is inspired by this journey around the world. I hope you like it!
