Viva La France + Freebie!!

Do you dream of going to France? Do you long to see the magic of Paris? Or are you one of the lucky people who have experienced the wonder of this place?? If you've answered yes to either of these questions (or even if you didn't) then this is the kit for you!

Viva La France by Honey Designs is gorgeous! Now, I mentioned above that you'll love it even if you didn't answer yes to either question because I am in that category, but I loved working with this kit! In fact, I might even go as far to say that it got me thinking about the idea of France - which has never happened to me! But, I kinda want to go. Crazy.

And the best bit? It's currently 25% off!!

Here are my first two layouts with this kit

While you're snapping up that bargain, you can grab this Sweet Stuff To Scrap Add On for FREE!

And now for the freebie, I made this Cluster Frame with Viva La France - I was inspired!

Have I mentioned how much I love the community at Digiridoo Scraps??? It is a truely warm and welcoming place.

Here are a few of my most recent LOs using products from the Digiridoo store.

I used What Girls Dream by BooLandDesigns - it's a gorgeous dreamy kit, full of pastels and amazing elements. It is perfect for magical, girly layouts.
This LO is for the September Scraplift Challenge, hosted by Linnie. Lifted from Woodelf's Girls. Pop over and join in for some fun and a gorgeous posting bonus.

I used Boardwalk for this layout, it's a collaberation by LDrag Designs and Artistic Leanings. It is a stunning kit and I loved working with it. I keep pestering Hubby to take us to the beach so I can take some more photos to use with this!!

Enjoy Spring by Felicia Staulters was the perfect kit for this layout of the girls. I love this photo and really wanted to find a soft, beautiful kit to use with it.

Another stunning kit from LDrag Designs, Johnny & Nadine is wonderfully bright, cheerful and full of gorgeous elements.

Another in my Ellie Dictionary!! I used Born to be Dirty by Caffeine Created Designs, which is full of grungy papers and elements. It's perfect for your boy LOs or for when your Little Princess is outside getting dirty!!!
