Friday giveaway!!!

I was creating this layout the other day..Realising that I use very little of a piece of new patterned paper.. I have a HUGE scrap container that I quite often scrap out of without even remotely cutting into a new piece.. Any way...I decided I could create this layout:

And do this too:

This is my mini kit...All this is exactly what I used to create the 'R' layout and a little bit more too!




Now understand..It's full of bits and pieces.. There is a whole piece of cardstock. And if you win..I will happily recreate my misting on it for you if you wish..

I happily cut into many new pieces of paper this time so that I was able to put some in this kit.. There is also an entire dress pattern included and some of my own hand made stars that I used.. I didn't have an entire set f white alpha's so I have included a woodgrain set from Studio Calico instead..
Some of the bits included:

October Afternoon 9-5
Jillibean Soup
Studio Calico
Echo Park

Lots of little bit and bobs..Because as you know I put heaps of little things on my work!
I am happy for you recreate the same layout or make your own..

But if you win I would love you to leave me a comment with a link to see what you created!

So how do you win??
The old fashioned way of course...
I am away with my husband - child free this weekend..

So leave me a comment over the weekend and on Monday night I will randomly draw a winner...


Happy weekend all.. You gotta be in it to win it!
