I'm excited to have you joining me on this super fun Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop! If you are looking for the IARCC blog Challenge, Click here. If you ended up here by chance be sure to go back and finish up the hop from the Kiwi Lane Blog.




How does winning a $25 dollar certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop sound? What a silly question!  One random winner from one of 9 blogs including the Kiwi Lane blog will win. Make sure you are leaving comments on all 9 blogs to be entered. You have until Sunday June 9th 11:59 mst to comment. The winner will be announced on the Kiwi blog and don't forget to become a follower of mine here on my blog.


I'm having so much fun being apart of the Kiwi Lane Design team! I am in love with all their  Designer templates! If you haven't tried any of the templates be sure to pick yourself up a set or two and give them a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!  I can't imagine not having them as a part of my arsenal of scrapbook supplies! Can you tell I am in love with Kiwi Lane templates!!! I love them so much that I will be giving away a set of templates (Wacky Accessory) here too. To enter my giveaway you must be a follower on my blog and when you leave a comment be sure to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win. I will choose a winner on Tuesday June 11th.

For this hop I create a two page layout of my boys washing my car for Mothers Day. Water and boys equals a lot of bubble trouble! LOL! 

First, I framed out my layout, which helps me see a rough draft of what my layout will look like. I usually end up changing a few things around, but for the most part I'm  usually happy with the way it looks.

Framing Process

Here's my finished layout!



Kiwi Lane templates I used to create this layout include: 
Adventure 3, 4, & 6
Aspen 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B
Accents 5T
1" Strip
4x5 Photo templates, & 4x6 Photo templates


Here's a little tip I did to create the slim arrows pointing at my boys.
*Trace Adventure 3 just the triangle shape, slide the template down just a little bit, trace again and cut out. Do this as many times as needed to create just the look you're wanting. This creates a fun embellishment on any layout or card.


Here's another look at some of the templates I used. I love how I added glossy accents to Adventure 6 to make it look like a water blob! So fun!!!

Thanks for joining me! Next stop on the hop is Karen.

Here is the blog line up just incase you are hopping out of order.


Happy Scrapping!
