hello Friday!

I don't know about you but I am so glad that the weekend is almost here.

It's been quite the exhausting week!

This morning I am going to share with you another page that I created with the October kit from Midnight Rooster. There are so many ways you can use this kit, such a fun mix of patterns that work for any style.

For this layout I used some pictures of my Lily and Sarah. We'd bought this pretty pink dress for Sarah for Easter and I later found the same dress on clearance at Target but in Lily's size. Sarah was beside herself with excitement for the day that they could both wear their little pink dresses. We took some time before church one Sunday to get these pictures.

Everything you see here came from the kit except for the thread and staples. With the kit you get two strips of fabric. I used a piece of one to make the big flower on the page. The white envelope with the stitching and butterfly on it is the envelope that the pins and other little extras came in. I cut it open from the bottom because as soon as I saw the envelope I knew that it would be come part of one of my projects! I added one of the cute pins to the center of the butterfly by simply poking the end of the pin through the little white bag and glueing it down with some Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive. I used the same glue for the flower and to glue the trims down. 

I really liked the white ribbon in the kit (you also get a ribbon card from My Mind's Eye that has the lace, blue trim and an orange trim) and will have to find some more of that somewhere. The brad in the center of the fabric flower came differently in the package. I liked the look of the big white pearl with the brown fabric so I simply switched them out. 

I liked that the Basic Grey paper had lines on it.I used my big 3" scallop circle punch to make my own journaling spot out of that paper. 

Well, folks, that's it for today. It's still early and I am going to go back to sleep for a while. Baby Lily is usually up by now but she's still sound asleep so I am going to do the same. 

We have a fun weekend ahead of us- perhaps a trip to the pumpkin patch and the girls' last soccer games of the season. 

Have a great weekend!
