Kiwi Lane BLOG HOP!!!
Welcome to the last stop!
Holy cow I am SOOOOOO excited to be in another fabulous Kiwi Lane Blog Hop!!!
You should have come from Barb Rapp's blog HERE. If not, go back to Kiwi Lane's blog HERE to start the hop. You don't want to miss out on any of the awesomeness! Or a chance to win...
So for my part of the hop I was given (that's right, GIVEN) the CELEBRATE Accessory Set:
I decided since I now have a rather *extensive* Kiwi Lane collection, I would challenge myself to use ONLY this template set!
Here is the first layout I came up with:
The Celebrate set just seems so happy! I knew I wanted to use the shapes in different ways... Obviously the triangle would make a great party hat or ice cream cone, but how about a background?
I just traced and cut a bunch of triangles and made my own paper. I LOVE how the templates make good use of my paper!!! Less scraps I have to feel guilty about throwing away!
The triangle also makes an excellent sunshine! And the ice cream topping turns into perfect clouds! And of course I had to use the pinwheels as, well, pinwheels! Why mess with something that works, right?
Here is the second layout I came up with:
Celebrate also seemed a bit more masculine to me... So I decided I needed to do something girly! Like butterflies!
I just traced the big and little balloons and free-handed a body. Oooooo! I bet this would make great flower petals, too!
For the smaller butterflies I traced the balloons again and just cut inside my lines to make them tiny. You really can customize any template to meet your needs!
The triangle turned into pennants on this page. With another butterfly of course!
I'm sure after all those amazing blogs you hopped to you have TONS of great ideas using the featured templates for April! Make sure you comment on EACH blog, including Kiwi Lane's, for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi store. You have until Sunday April 6th at midnight to get all your comments in! The winner will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog HERE on Thursday April 10th.

Good luck all and happy crafting!
