Blog Hoppin' With Kiwi Lane Designs

If you've made your way to my blog today from Jennifer Budge's blog then welcome!! I hope you've been enjoying the blog hop so far.

I'm thrilled that Kristy asked me to be one of the Guest Designers this month for Kiwi Lane Designs and this fun blog hop that you've come upon today.
Be sure to hop through all the blogs because there is so much inspiration. And the more you comment the bigger your chance is of winning a $25 gift certificate to Kiwi Lane Designs!



They have so many fun templates and I was excited to try them out!!
I was able to play with "Happy Trails" .  These templates are 12" long and have super fun shapes.
Their templates come in a variety of sizes & shapes, and all sorts of themes as well.

Here's a layout that I created using the templates.


The wavy pattern adds a fun element to the simple design of my layout.


Supplies used: Kiwi Lane Design (Happy Trails template); Imaginisce (Outdoor Adventure collection: patterned papers, diecuts, stickers); Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock; brown marker
