scrappy love & the winners are...

Still unpacking and to be honest I haven't been very efficient. It is hard to stay on task when the little ones need you or you start wandering down memory lane. We miss our friends and family in California but thankful we have these memories scrapped! These were two of my favorites from My Little Shoebox's summer release. The colors, the details... oh how I heart Green & Sunday Market!
Days like today make me thankful for being introduced to this wonderful craft!

Okay, enough of me being sappy let's get to what ya'll have been waiting for!!!!

Drum roll please....

I've been thinking...

I know, dangerous huh?
I am thinking that one prize like this isn't enough...
So both of these kits need good homes therefore using a highly specified means of selection {my 4 year old will be in charge of the choosing and she likes princesses in case you were wondering!} one lucky winner will be taking home City By The Bay and the other lucky winner will get to play with Farmer's Market!!!

Each kit includes:
1 set of Diecuts
2 of each paper
2 Scallops
3 different color mini alphas
1 glazed alpha
1 set of Icon Stickers

Now hurry up and leave me a comment naming your favorite collection from My Little Shoebox's new release before the 10pm PST deadline tonight!!!
Good Luck & Creative Cheers!!!

PS. I will be sure to include the comments from this post in for the prizes!
