Apron Strings & Giveaway

I'm Guest Designer this month over at the Apron Strings blog. I really love Lori's kits and I get the Smaller than a Breadbox kits through autoship. This month to change things a bit I got to play with the September'11 Bigger Than A Breadbox kit -- and to my immense surprise it included my two absolute favorite spring lines: My Mind's Eye Lime Twist and October Afternoon's Rocket Age! I even disregarded my chronological scrapper habit so I could scrap the pictures from our visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum ;)

Here is my first project, which you can also see at the Apron Strings blog today:
October Afternoon - Rocket Age - papers, cardstock, chipboard embellishments, button and journaling tag from the September'11 Apron Strings BTBB kit. The photo mat edges and the chipboard were inked with the Maya Road metallic blue ink pad included in the kit. The American Crafts Thickers came in the Apron Strings October Afternoon Good Cheer kit, and I outlined them with a white gel pen (by Pentel). The stitching was made with the WRMK Sew Easy blanket and original piercing heads; DMC floss from my stash.

To celebrate all the fun I get to have this month at the Apron Strings blog I will be giving away an August '11 Smaller than a Breadbox kit.
Just leave a comment on my Apron Strings Guest Designer posts here and/or at the Apron Strings blog to be eligible for the drawing. The more comments the more chances to win, but one comment per person per post please. I'll announce the winner in my last Apron Strings Guest Designer post at the end of the month :)

Thanks for stopping by!
