Vera Lim Blog Blitz

 I am so excited to show you my layout made with Vera's wonderful kit! Here is the kit I used!
                Wild & Beautiful is a “gorgeous and stunning pastel colored kit!” It includes 10 papers and 34 elements (available as colored and shadowed versions – 63 total elements) I was provided a copy this kit by Vera Lim, a guest designer at This review was not influenced by a free kit - just in case you (or the FTC) were worried about this detail.

                              Here is my layout! Hope you love it! I love how all the elements worked so perfectly
                                  together. I had so much fun using it and designing my page!This was the first time  I have used a kit by Vera Lim. I am loving the preshadowed elements because that is the part I always dread. I know I will scrap with this kit again. I am already imagining how to use it with other photos I have that need this color kit!

                                             Here is a little about the awesome designer!

Happy Birthday to Brevan!

Happy 2nd Birthday Brevan! Brevan had an awesome party with the family today! He is currently into trains and Toy Story. I had to get this Thomas train cake because they do not have Chuggington yet. That is his favorite TV show. He was so tired because he would not take a nap after church. I woke him up after just about a 30 min nap. He ate dinner then we opened his presents and had birthday cake. He loved the presents but was not too into the cake. The girls especially were interested in what he got because they wanted to play with his toys too! They ened up opening just two of them before we came home and played with the other kids. I am so happy he had a wonderful time!
