And now, for my post...
Here are some before, during and (almost) after pics from my You & Me Kit, available from Close to my Heart only from May 1st through 31st (or while supplies last).  Each kit includes a guide to complete 2 layouts, stamp set, embellishments, and all the paper required for the layouts.



These are some of the embellishments included in the kit.  Not pictured are the irresistables.


These are my partially-inked irresistables.


This is one of my partially-completed layouts.


This is what one of the completed pages will look like by the end of the day.  If it's not too late, I will come back and post my completed pics.



Thank you for taking the time to HOP with us.  It has been our pleasure to present projects specifically made for this hop.  Please take the time to leave comments on all the blogs during this HOP.  Your ideas and suggestions help improve our blogs, web sites, Facebook pages & future hops. Thank You!
