Blessings (Artful Delight)

Good morning!! I have a new layout to share with you that I created using the October kit from Artful Delight...






Supplies Used From The Artful Delight October Kit: Pink Paislee Nantucket Paper - Crab Cakes & Clam Chowder Other Supplies Used: Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Old Paper; Studio Calico Mister Huey - Calico White; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Sentimentally Ali; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch; I-Rock; I-Rock Clear Gems; I-Rock Stencil; Recollections Flowers
*Inspired by this sketch at Frosted Designs


This is the cover page for the album I made for my mother-in-law's birthday (I've mentioned it a couple of times before). She's coming into town today so I wanted to get it finished for her and I'm so happy with how it all turned out! There are 20 pages in all...the cover page layout, followed by 18 layouts (6 per family) of each of her 3 kids and their families, and the last page which is a layout of her with all of her grandkids (seen here). I really hope she loves it because it was so much fun making it for her. :)

If you haven't gotten an October kit yet, there's still time! Also, keep an eye on the Artful Delight blog because on Tuesday Leeanne will be revealing the November kit. I'm sure it will be fabulous and I can't wait to see it all!

P.S. I don't know if you've noticed lately but I'm a little obsessed with my I-Rock these days! This little tool is SO amazing. I was never really much of a bling person before getting mine but it completely changed my view on it all. I absolutely love how easy it is to add the jewels and I feel like it adds just the right touch to my project every time I use it. I really can't seem to make anything without it lately, lol! Oh and bonus, the other day I found some absolutely GORGEOUS Jolee's hotfix jewels at Michaels that work with my I-Rock and snatched some up. Love, love, love them! Just thought I'd throw that out there in case anyone's looking for a new tool to spoil themselves with. ;)
