Welcome to the April Edition of the 12 Kits of Holidays. We used to be the 12 Kits of Christmas but decided to add some other holidays in here as well this year. Just to refresh your memory, the 12 Kits is a group of 12 designers. We've each been assigned one month to supply goodies to the rest of the group. We all get the same ingredients to work with and on the last day of the month we reveal our creations! It's interesting to see how we all use the same ingredients just a little differently to showcase our own style. The hostess this month is Ms. Sharron Gregory of On Papillon Wings blog.
Sharron's style is C&S and it seems obvious to me that she loves nature. It's not unusual to see flowers, butterflies, animals and birds on her creations. Just check out this amazing kit Sharron put together for us - My Mind's Eye "Winter Wonderland" paper, stamps from Plum Purdy and lots of embellishments. And the nature thing? I can't believe I made 7 (yep you read it right!) this time. I think I could have kept going too!! I will keep it short - promise. So without further delay - straight to the designs!!!
