Welcome to the Kiwi Lane April Blog Hop. I'm so happy to be joining this wonderful group of girls in using such fun tools. This weekend I'll be featuring the 
Celebrate template set.
On this layout I used the pennant and the ticket stub templates that come with the kit. My son has a best friend that he is growing up with and I just love these "through the years" layouts. See how tiny they were and now they're getting so big. The templates are so easy to work with, just trace and cut. Little effort for lots of wow!


The second project I created using the balloon and wavy templates. I had this great sparkly paper and I knew it would be wonderful paired with the cute balloons. I added a little twine and washi and ended up with a perfect celebration card!


 The blog hop will run through 11:59 PM MST on Sunday April 6TH. a random winner from ONE of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment and will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, April 10TH. 
Have fun visiting all the stops along the way.
Jennifer Nicholes is up next.
