Loving My Pixie Dust Kit !!!!

I'd been looking at the kits from Pixie Dust Paperie since they first opened in October,thinking how gorgeous they were.I had never ordered from the U.S. before and thought the shipping would be expensive or it would take weeks to get here so always put it off. Well,a couple of weeks before Christmas I went for it and ordered the December kit,and boy was I wrong the shipping was reasonable and it only took a week from ordering to get to me and that was over Christmas,why didn't I order before!!! You certainly get your moneys worth,it's choc-a-bloc with gorgeous goodies.
Here's some LO's I've done using the December's kit:


Everything on this page was from the kit except the chipboard bird,I even did a bit of recycling,I used the packaging from the Prima flowers (the doily) and the music paper with twine which was wrapped around the ribbon.


I couldn't sleep last night so after a couple of hours of tossing and turning I got up and did this LO,the papers were from the kit but I wanted it flower heavy,I love Prima flowers and have got lots of them but want to use some up ready to buy the new CHA ones,lol. I won a Prima stamp set at the last Bromsgrove crop so stamped the frame directly onto the paper and added the title. The photo is of me and my glamourous Mom,I had just turned 40 and my Mom had turned 60.


I didn't need to do a lot to this LO as the paper was already gorgeous,I just added one of the Tattered Angels Calling Cards,a scrap of DP and some flowers I made using the ribbon from the kit,I added the crown and pins from my stash.


These photo's were taken at The Severn Valley Railway last summer,so the Tattered Angels Bingo Card that you get in the kit was perfect for this page.

I have done 5 LO's so far with this kit and still have loads left including a full bottle of Tattered Angels Mist,I can't wait to start on my January kit so watch this space.

Have a great weekend,I'm off on a Girls Night Out tonight so that should be fun!

The kit looks gorgeous - what a shame I am on a self-imposed shopping ban ;-( Wonderful layouts of course, but what I love the most is to see two or is it three layouts with YOU featured on them! Yeah!!!! I love to see that... Now I just have to work on getting you to do more journalling..... Ha ha! Love your layouts just the way they are, you know that!

Deb it's lovely to see how your LO's turned out so different and gorgeous. I am not a scrapbooker but looking at these I can see that you are amazing with LO's. And a perfect use of the kit. Each LOd has it's "own colors and style". I love that.
And yes i have a favorite; the one with the picture of you and your mother; I love it. Gorgeous with all the flowers and your picture is lovely!
Enjoy your night out and have a wonderful weekend!
