2 more layouts and a giveaway!

So previously I mentioned I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator (and initially this blog was going to be solely for that purpose...hence the name...lol) anyway last week I did a workshop and we made these cute little "gingerbread houses" out of chipboard and a pattern I made up myself...

Well I have one kit left if anyone would like it I am giving it away...just leave me a comment and depending on how many responses I get I will draw the person out if a hat...It will be really embarrasing if I get no responses but hey ...the kit is just sitting there collecting dust so I thought I would put it out there ...not that I think I get many visitors to my blog...lol.

"Close" is the layout I created using Scrapbook Savvy's Monthly Store Competition . The sketch can be seen here...

There is a focal frame around the sketch but I used a scalloped semi-circle instead to frame my main photo...

The paper is French Kitchen and the back of MM Noteworthy paper. I have used True Friend Stampin' Up! stamp set for the leaves in the flower clusters and BG White Chocolate alphas ...a bit of handstitching and transparency and whalah!

"party gal" is a layout using monthly sketch challenge over on Bons Scraps...

I wasn't to sure about this one either as it was very sparse and no patterned paper indicated (which I stayed true to)...so I went with some stamped flourishes (kelly panachi) and simple colour scheme to use the photos as the focus.

I am really happy with this the only thing I am not sure about is the lack of journaling...but I have other layouts from the day and I guess cutting the cake is self-explanitory?
