020618 CKC February Mini Kit

This month I jumped on the CKC mini bandwagon.
Frankly the inspiration kits scared me a bit!
They are so much like how I used to scrap,
and I worried that a full month kit might languish on the shelf.

Aren't they gorgeous, though?

Noel Mignon Weekend in Paris Classic Kit
Noel Mignon Weekend in Paris Daily Diary Kit
One piece that I own is this cut apart sheet from a custom Wild Hare Kit
This just looks like fun! So I used a Melissa Frances pair of resin wings to make a flying giraffe...

American Crafts/Maggie Holmes Carousel "Carnival"
 I had a BIG birthday last October that needed a page, hence my "Happy Birthday to ME!" mini kit.
I got so inspired that I fussy-cut the card elements that I wanted before I had photoed the kit - oops! 

One of my elements layered a wild-eyed carousel horse card underneath an elegant vintage framed Parisian lady transparency, perfectly representing mixed feelings about my sixth decade birthday. The sentiment came from an old forged card I had included just for that purpose.

My gold glitter came out grungy, but 60 is a little grungy!

I gave my flying giraffe a little add-on golden crown, a stickpin from Prima.

I tricked out this cute carousel with some bling & a little twine. 

I added the border at the last minute & it just brings the whole page to life.
It is a hoarded favorite Felicity Jane Caroline kit paper - I even saved the middle!

Lots of fun (for an old lady!) on this page.
The mini kit option really does inspire. 

Go for it!
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Such a beautiful and fun page... and Happy Birthday!

  4. I love the whimsical and fun touches you added to your page and it really amazes me that we both started with the same inspiration but came up with two completely different mini kits. Ah, the beauty of counterfeiting...

  5. An incredible page for an amazing birthday. Fabulous page Leslie! Just so full of fun and detail and meaning. Love it

  6. awesome! Love the animal/carnival feel and ooohh, love the grungy look of the "60" :)
