I was cruising the galleries earlier this week for a great scraplift candidate. I came across some layouts that were very similar in nature, so I decided to scraplift the concept! Melissa even chose some of them to feature in the Thursday post! Great minds think alike, huh?
and from melscrap
and here is my scraplift:
I did spend some time making and spacing out the 36 little 1 inch squares, so if you want to play along and don't want to spend all that time, I do have a .png file that has all the little squares laid out for you. You can download it here! Feel free to hide or erase some of the squares if they don't all work for you.
Ok, so here is what you need to do:
Upload your LO's to your favorite online gallery, come back and post the link in the comments for this post by Friday, September 5th at midnight EST. If you aren't comfortable with that, you may post your LO on your blog or your photobucket account instead. Just make sure you link us up! We will choose a LO (using the random number generator) to win a $5 gift certificate. Here is the best part, the winner picks which one of Kiki’s shops you want to spend it in. Can I get a woo hoo??!! Which will it be Plain Digital Wrapper, Scrapbook-Elements, or Sunshine Studio Scraps?
Get ready, get set....go scrap!
I will be back later with the winner from last weeks lift!

Now on to the important stuff. Have you seen Kiki's new paper packs? You havn't?? They are perfect for using in all sorts of layouts. The first one is Tan Lines. It is a wide assortment of nuetrals that will highlight any page. And if you are like me and like to dabble in design on your LO's, the lighter shades work great for that torn chipboard effect. (See LO below)
This one is Earthy. Such deep beautiful greens, great for any LO but I just image being in a forest in summer, or a park or playground. Warm and inviting. Both of these are available at SunshineStudioScraps.
Here is the 2 pager I did with both kits. They definately go well together, specially if you are doing a nature page. In case your wondering, (I know it's hard to see in the preview) those are pics of Cicadas. Yep, a bug!!! But this was a once in a lifetime shot of a Cicada coming out of his shedding. When I saw these papers, I knew they were PERFECT for this shot! I used both Earthy and Tan Lines as well as MumsHighTea, LeGrungeAlpha and Frosty Limeberry.This next LO was done by another Nut ;) Cindy. OMGosh, isn't her son just way too cute. Such a little man! And the LO is beautiful. Cindy used Earthy paper pack Tan Lines paper pack Rough and Tumble alpha Frosty Limeberry Morning's Grace. Other items include: tag & staple: mgl Scraps Crimson Gypsy school wordart: Christina Renee Vanilla Hush 4:AWork in Progress Summer Garden alpha Annie Manning Paint the Moon masks Krystal Hartley Paper Blox 2 freebie Gina Miller Doodled Frames
And a little something extra! We love those extras, don't we ladies? (and men) I created two freebies that coordinate with both kits. An alpha and some frames. Please take them and use them, and while you are at it, don't forget to check out Kiki's new items as well as all her items. You'll love them.

You can download this add-on here, and I hope that you'll email me with a link to your layouts so that I can post comments.
So next time you'll see a posting, don't be surprised to see that one of Kiki's Kokonuts is the contributor. I'll have some new product announcements on Sunday, and after that you'll see lots of exciting challenges and some inspiration too.
