Be You (MCS Main Kit & My Creative Sketches)

It's time to reveal another lovely sketch from My Creative Sketches and my take on it using the September Main kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

 This is my favorite layout using the kit.  It probably has a lot to do with the beautiful little girl in the picture.  She's so photogenic and who could resist that smile?!

I wanted to keep this layout soft and girly but give it a little edge with the black charcoal accents and black twine.

MCS DT Reveal - Part 3

In part 3 of my DT reveal for My Creative Scrapbook (click HERE for Part 1 and HERE for Part 2), i have a single-page layout to share with you created with the September Main kit.

 The picture is of our friends and their 2 little girls, Jade and Celeste.  You will be seeing a bit more of this wonderful family in future posts as i will be making layouts for them as a special request.

I mixed a little masking with molding paste and some misting to create the background.

Most of the flowers added on this page are handmade with materials from the Main kit.  Later on this month, I will be sharing a tutorial on how i created them both on here and on the MCS blog.

Be sure to drop by on the 16th for the September sketch reveal from My Creative Sketches during which i will post my final layout featuring the MCS Main kit.
