Memorial Day Monday with Melanie!!! and a new kit...

Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday!

Today I'm going to share my first layout from the Newest BlueMoon kit called Fresh EscapesThe colors are perfect with the different shades of greens, blues, oranges, with a touch of black and lovely accent color of coral.

This is my first layout from the kit...

if i could pick the best brother, I'd pick you

I did lots of layering with the different papers, coral trim, Pink Paislee clear border stickers. I ever stitched a bit on the blue paper.

I had fun making these flowers. I used the Pink Paislee Pleated Ribbons. With the green piece, I cut the length in half and sewed the ends together to make the pleated flower and topped it off the the Pink Paislee Cork Buttons. (which is one of favorite things that came out this past winter!) To finish off the flower, I used the gray pleated ribbon for a stem.

I used a different set of alpha that came in the kit, I think it's fun to mix up the font and font sizes. Which you can still do because there are not 1 but 2 sets of alpha's included in the kit!

Would you like a peak of the fun, fresh kit!?!??!? Here ya go!

You can read about the contents and purchase this limited kit on the BlueMoon site!
