Erin's Layouts and Bits & Pieces Winner

Hi everyone.  It was a beautiful autumn day here in the Midwest.  Sorry I'm just getting around to today's blog post, but it was just too nice to stay inside.

Here is one last look at our October Kit, Last Kiss of Summer.  This time we're sharing a couple of Erin's layouts.  You're going to love these!

"Wish" by Erin Blegen

I really love the range of colors this kit provides. As my oldest son gets older, I like to stick with more masculine shades for his layouts, and the blues in this kit are perfect for a page about him! There are also some great fussy cutting opportunities with these papers, which I've done here to create a border behind my photo.

 I went all girl with this one- with just a touch of grunge! For such a happy photo, I knew I had to do something fun. So I just let loose with some misting and masking, and added plenty of texture.

In just a few days we will be previewing the paper and add-ons for our November kit, 
so be sure to check back. 


Now it's time to announce the winner of our October Bits & Pieces Giveaway.  The winner is:

 Entry #59 belongs to Nicole McNamara.  Congratulations Nicole!  Leslie will be contacting you via e-mail to get your mailing address so she can send you her bits and pieces!


  1. I really and truly love both of these layouts by Erin. Unfortunately when I try to view her blog it takes forever to load so I'm glad I can see her work here. rin's work is so beautiful.

    1. :( Sorry to hear you having trouble with my blog! I would guess it has to do with the image sizes and I'm not the best when it comes to figuring out how to resize them all without losing quality. I would assume that my online galleries would be easier to view...

      But thank-you Sandra for your kind words, they truly made my night!


  2. Oh WOW!! They are beautiful layouts! Just stunning!! Two perfect colour schemes. Love them.
    And so excited to receive the bits & pieces! Thank you so much Leslie and =D

  3. Congrats to Nicole......have fun with your bits & pieces......have a wonderful sunday hugs Amy :)

  4. Gorgeous work by Erin, she is certainly soooooo very creative! Congrats to Nicole on her lucky win of the Bits and Pieces this month, enjoy!!!
