Then, 2-1/2 years later!

I went to New York City ...and took like 400 pictures... in June of 2008! I'm just now scrapping them! So I'm a little slow in some areas!

Then a couple of months ago I joined the Little Black Dress Kit Club. They have the most wonderful kits full of yummy vintage goodies!

Then, Melissa, who gets the kit also said... "Let's challenge each other to use our kits by the last day of the month!" It'll be really cool to see what we each create using the very same products.

That brings me to now... wanting to scrap my NYC pics, using the kit, and not waiting until the last minute like someone I know will! heehee!

So far I've managed to get 4 layouts out of this kit, and still have plenty of paper and embellies left for several more pages.

LUV this ribbon and must be finding me some of it!

A little stickles on my flowers just makes them come alive!

I love the layering, and am not sure why I've gotten away from it.

I wasn't sure about using the yellow, but it really makes the page pop!

I'm actually working on the next page, almost have it finished...and just super excited that I've started on them. Who knows, perhaps I'll have these pics all scrapped before my next trip to NYC!

Other news in the household.... I'm roasting my first chicken ever today! It's gonna be goooood! I'm also having another go at dressing, since the Christmas one was such a fiasco! This time, I've got the right cornbread!!

Off to see who is winning the football game. I hear Matt yelling, can't tell if it's a good yell or a bad one?? Oh oh oh... David and I were looking on the Texas Ranger site this morning...picking out what games we wanted to go to. I'm soooo looking forward to that! It's gonna be a good year folks!

Wow what great LO's Lisa. I can't wait to see Melissa's, too, to see how two different people use the same kit. Will be fun!!

Hope your chicken is great. Nothing to it. I am sure it will be!!

I am going back to see how the games are going, too!

Glad you found the perfect paper to finally scrap your trip!

So glad you are finally getting to scrap the pics from your trip. Great job on the los you've done so far. I love that accordianed paper(?) on the side of the lo. Looking forward to seeing more.

Oh so pretty!! I think my favorite one is the Hudson River one.. you know how big of a fan I am of layering! Love them all, though!

These LOs are awesome! I love the layering on the Hudson River one so much!

I love the flowers, the ribbon, the pics, the layout, it's elegant and simplistic, nice nice, great pictures of the big apple, but where's the HONK HONK pic!
