CT: New Layout, sale and iNSD blog hop

My friend, Priscilla,  recently had a sale and challenge up at Scrappy Bee that I missed. Ugh! Don't you just hate when real life gets in the way of your fun? Why did I have to return to college in the first place?

But at least I didn't miss Scrappy Bee's Blog Train "Picnic" and all the lovely kits it holds. It simply makes me WANT to have a picnic now! It's full of reds, greens, yellows and all things summer! Yum! Makes me want a grilled hot dog real bad! LOL

Her kit is so cute! I just love the little ants in it. Here's a preview of what you can find in her mini kit:

And here is a layout that I did with it, using a template by Akizo Designs, "Curve Addict 2":
This was my son's 10th birthday party and I thought the picture just worked wonders with this lovely kit!

I'm sure she'd love to see what you can accomplish as well with her kit. Click the image above to download her kit to create a lovely bit of eye candy yourself.

While there, grab your freebies from the other lovely talented designers on the tour!

Be sure to make it to the other stops before the 15th!
