Welcome To The Party!!

The Lucky Girl Crafts blog party that is! Thank you for joining us! Today we are doing a little blog hoppin to celebrate April's fabulous new kit - A Boy & His Toys. It's stuffed to the brim with lots of new releases from Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, Echo Park and more and is perfect for all your masculine pages!

Our April kits are FLYING off the shelf, so be sure to order yours ASAP before they're gone!
For international orders, please contact Jessica by e-mailing your order to jasafras98@yahoo.com.

Now onto the projects!


First is a page about my step-son and his imaginary dino bone hunting quest. You might not see it but that big stick his is holding above his head is actually a T-Rex bone! Can you believe it?! He was quite proud and was showing it to everyone at the park. What a lovely imagination.
I love how well the colors in the different lines coordinate! I also used my mist from last month's kit to mask off some stars from the Bo Bunny paper as well as some white from my stash. Oh and the leashed dino - so fun!

 
Also made a card using many of the same elements as the Dino layout. Just saying "Hi" on the front of the card makes it is versatile don't you think?
 
The next page is about my husband's new business venture into scrap metal (we're both scrappers now - hee haw!) with a picture of the gigantic 20-foot trailer he bought and is so proud of. I cut out a few little aliens from the Bo Bunny paper combined with some of the Crate elements to go with the new frontier theme.
 
Using some of the journaling cards and cardstock stickers, I made a little book to house all the things I had to say to my hubby about how proud I am of him.
 
And finally, another attempt at a 2-pager using some pics from the Winterset Park playground and little bits of this and that. There is no better way to entertain an energetic little boy.
 
I knew when I saw the blocks paper that I wanted to cut some words out of it or maybe make a block tower but ended up with a banner for the title that is one of my fav elements on this page. And what would a page about outdoor fun be without a sun and a few clouds?
 
To keep with the play theme, I used the bungee cord inside a chipboard frame to make a sort of interactive toy. Well, the kind of toy you'd use if you were bored, like pushing the middle of a Snapple lid up and down.
 
One more corner full of goodies to tie it all together (and fill up the space - 12x24 is a lot of blank canvas for me!)
 
So do you like what you see? Lucky Girl is giving away $25 lucky bucks to one lucky winner - all you have to do is leave a comment on the Lucky Girl blog. For another chance to win, stop by any of the Lucky Girl DT's blog and leave a little love for a chance to win $10 to the LGC store!
