What a fun mini to play around with. I used the wordart 'all girl' to make a blended stamp for the pink paper.

No way I can get this kit to work with my boy. Will have to pass this time.

Update: 10/21 Karen of Snickerdoodles is kindly letting me use some pictures. I lost the "grandkids" pictures due to a computer problem and discovered my flash drive was empty. Trying to get my photos back from family. Will post a layout after I get some pictures.

Thank you for the cute mini and to Karen for her generosity.

Ladies, these are so lovely and fun! Great job - and thank you for working with my kit. I absolutely love seeing the creativity that you all come up with.

A HUGE thanks to my dear friend Kimberly, both for hosting this challenge and the super-sweet words. You know I love ya, girl!

Just a thought for those of you who don't have daughters and think you may not find uses for this kit. I don't have girls, either. I have only sons - FOUR of them! I live in a testosterone-loaded house. Even the dog is male. And you know what that means? As much as I love my family, I really value the time I get to spend with my girlfriends, or my sister. Here's a layout I made using the main kit. I spent the day with some friends shopping in San Francisco (I'm the second one from the right).

This is my adorable cousin Addison... Her mom Whitney always has her dressed so cute! Whitney made the bows for her hair as well as the one Tu-Tu she is wearing. Addison is such a ham!

Thanks, I didn't know this. Will file it away in the memory bank for future use.
