Cute layout for the challenge. My fave layout in the Nikki Sivils gallery is actually by you. It's the one you did on the swing - 30 years apart. So very CUTE! I am already following both blogs - just so inspiring!!!!
Maggi said...
I'm a follower of both blogs! My favorite is the "A Beach Picnic" layout in the Cherry Pie section.
Awesome giveaway, love those burlap buttons!
JessiW said...
I love all the items in the gallery...they are gorgeous:) But right now the one that called out to me is "It's That Time" by Claude Campeau..I probably did not spell that right! But it just is exactly how I feel when I think of having to send Lucas to school!!! I'll mention this giveaway in my next blog post too, even though I would like to be greedy and get it all!! LOL...Nikki is really awesome to let you give away so much stuff. Oh, I love your fave outfit layout too...Beauty! Love, Jess
Monique said...
OMG!! Love those prizes!!! and there is soooo much!!!
I already know which creation is my favorite, it's created by my BFF Mieke and it's called "CHA Nikki Sivils 004" it's the heart shaped layout with Julie (the dog) featured in it.
By the way I love the layout you made!! Those colors are wonderful and that photo is just fab!
Thanks for a chance to win!!

    You know who is also not-so-romantic -- me and the Mr. We celebrated today at Arby's. We're not "wait-an-hour-to-eat-at-a-crowded-restaurant" people. We'll save that for the non-valentine weekends. :)

(I can actually get on your blog so yay!!!!) secondly the layout with Adam growing is so awesome I've notice over the years that he has grown so much! typical lol so having a layout that documents it is awesome. I love the cardboard letters for a title it makes it more rugged and adds that masculine feel to it.

    Brookies dress is so pretty! and lol I looked at it and went that would make one cute scrapbook paper (sad I know but when you have no time to scrapbook this is what I spend my limited free time doing)

    jelous of the warm weather so I am throwing an imaginary snowball right at you! this weekend was chilly here but warmer than usual so I am not going to complain too much. anyways as usual I am blabbing too much
