Memphis Belle

The Cocoa Daisy Feb kit called Memphis Belle went up for sale at midnight last night. This kit just had so much stuff-buttons, glitter tags, 2 alphas, mist and stencils, metal and canvas, the new Pink Paislee cupid and so so much more. Definitely one of my favorites so far. I have at least one more finished layout to upload (the sun got away from me yesterday). Here's what I made with the main kit, and the add-ons Betty Grable and Ava Gardner:
That Prima paper is almost too pretty to use. I thought about just framing it, and it physically hurt me to cut it but it was the right thing to do. :) The design was from how the Prima paper was packaged, I just loved the stripe of teal in there and there was a paper in the paper add-on that was a similar teal so I decided to go for it. I used an old CM border ruler I found in the move. Look at that, moving was good for something! :)
This kit uses the main kit paper, alphas and Tim hotlz embellishment with the add-ons in Betty Grable-that making memories brown glitter circle, the borders by GCD, and the Pink paislee alphas. I love, love those borders, can't say enough about how much I love that add-on. It also has Making memories flowers (I'll post my layout tomorrow, you'll see what I mean), the prima teal flowers and the 7 gypsies gaffer tape in ledger/script. :)
On this one I decided to cut up the ribbon for something different. I really like how it turned out, and it's fun to do. So very imperfect. All papers from the main kit. :)
And this is my ode to Kiesha Campbell. No, I didn't scraplift any one layout, but I believe I channeled her essence. I used smaller than normal photos, the placement of the flower and tried to make my page symmetrical (I failed miserably at that, but I tried.) That's me and J reading a book together. Love those photos of him, me not so much. :)

I ran out of butter for my cake, so I'm running to the food store. It's my birthday today and there shall be cake! I'll add another layout tomorrow, and hopefully have this RAK thing sorted out. I have to find that box. . . Happy Monday! Until tomorrow.
