Kit Kats Go Beachy!

 Good morning!  It's a beautiful Sunday morning, and time for the Kit Cat Club to share yet another challenge with you.  Today, the kits that we share with you come from our purrrrfectly sweet kitten, Jeanette.  Jeanette, like many of us was ready for some fun in the sun when she put her kits together, and I have to tell ya, that this was a VERY welcome theme for me!  Oh, how I WISH I could tag along with Kelly for a trip to the beach!!  Since it isn't physically possible,  just for today with these fabulous kits from Jeanette, we're trippin' to the beach with Kelly via cyberspace.  Here's what I did with my kit...
I decided that this time I'd do a 6x6 layout.  Jeanette provided us with Cheeky Beach images from The greeting Farm, and I colored mine with my Copic markers.  The patterned paper is called Airbrushed Wave from Paper Studio, and for embellishments, I used as many of the wonderful things that Jeanette included that I could possibly work in.  For instance, you'll see in this layout, Creative Impressions Blue Rick-Rack, Creative Impressions Web Ribbon (Brown, which I LOVE), Seashell brads from The Eyelet Outlet, and Paper Studio clear and light blue gemstones.  There's plenty more goodies and papers left for me to create a few other great projects, too!  Thank you sooooo much for a fun and inspiring kit, Jeanette!!!!!
Now be sure to hop over to the rest of the Kit Cat blogs to see what they've created with their wonderful goodies!!!  Jeanette, Michelle, Kelly and Susan are all hitting the beach with me today, and it's summer fun all the way!!!!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope the weekend is treatin' ya well, and that you're enjoying some time doing all the things that you love!  Have a blessed day and happy stamping!!

Oh and before I forget, the winner of the set of three handmade (by me) stick pins from The Reason For The Season Blog Hop is...  get this... the last commenter!  Commenter #32...

Love it! I so adore the big cards - you can get so much onto them and they are just fun! Totally digging the sun in the background - super idea and it makes it all so happy.

Your netting is cool too - I find it funny that we've all used that so far, just a fun and unusual embellie option sweet Jeanette supplied for us!

Hurray for the beach!

I love your layout and can see how my little photo of someone special would fit perfectly. Perhaps if I stuck to 6x6 panels I would get into scrapbooking, but do you have any idea how long it would take to get through all of my photographs?!

Oh Lorie, your creation is spring break spectacular! I *love* the big square layout and find that I make them more often, too. Fantastic job showing off so many of the wonderful kit elements (I ♥ that mesh ribbon too!) and the rhinestones on the ric-rac are wonderful! I am always awe-struck by your Copic coloring - seriously drool-worthy! - and the added Peachy Keen sunshine is an adorable touch! I'm so happy to be a Kitten with you!

Lorie, your card is wonderful. Love your coloring and what you have done with the kit. Your cards are all so different and that´s fun !

Oh my! I am ALMOST speechless, Lorie! Almost! Your layout is gorgeous!!! Cheeky Beach is colored to perfection (I'd expect nothing less from you, of course, cuz your coloring is over the top!!!) But look at all the fun details too. I love the way you used the webbing. It's amazing to me how bunching the ends makes such a difference... and then adding all those rhinestone gems and the seashells, too. Perfect! Love the sunshine... just what we needed at the beach, of course!

I'm so glad you went to the beach with me today - and with the other Kit Cats. This has been so much fun!!!

Such an adorable image colored perfecctl a'-la- Lorie style and the netting is so cleverly placed!
I love the additions of gems both amongst the net and on the zig zag ribbon...it sure adds the perfect bling! Gorgeous and top notch!:o)

Oh, Lorie...I LOVE HER!! She is gorgeous and the scene you've created is perfect. Wow, each kit card is so amazing (of course they are because all of YOU are) and yet so completely different. I love your whole layout, your coloring and that Peachy Keen sunshine!! Beautimous! HUGS
