This kit is truly beautiful! The soft greens and pinks are so much fun to work with! It was actually my first time working with Meg's Garden and I absolutely loved it!

Here are my projects for this month:

"Hiking" Layout
My first layout is based on my sketch for this month. I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. The jute and cardboard are from my stash. The leaves and butterflies are all handmade by me. 

"Cherish" Layout
 I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. The hemp cord, large pink Prima flower and cardboard are from my stash. Everything else is included in this month's kit.  These pictures were taken by my friend Hanay when I first held her newborn daughter. These pictures are so precious to me and it's a memory that I will always cherish!

Birthday Card Set

I used the Main Kit only for these cards. The doilies are handmade with the Cheery Lynn Designs Die English Tea Party Doily Die. Come back later this month and I'll show you how I made this card set using scraps after I was done working with the March Kit.
