Celebrate with Us Challenge #4...a little Late :)

Postby Olivia » Oct 9th, '11, 8:29 pm

Challenge 4 was based off a lift from one of my layouts. It was such an honor to be lifted that I had planned to complete 5 layouts using kits from the past five years.

I planned to have it done and posted by the end of the challenge, but I had a few bad weeks of constant migraines and it just didn't get completed. I was able to get it finished this weekend and I wanted to go ahead and post them in the gallery. So here they are:

2007- Made with the December 2007 CD kit "A Winter's Eve"

2008- Made with the April 2008 CD kit "Orient Express"
Image

2009-Made with the September 2009 CD kit "Ali's Favorites"
Image

2010- Made with the February 2010 CD Kit "Memphis Belle"
Image

2011- Made with the September 2011 CD Kit "Printer's Drawer"

I have loved every kit put out by Cocoa Daisy these past 5 years and the kits just get better month after month. I am so blessed to be part of a community of such amazing and inspiring women.

Ooooo Olivia, this is so cool! I don't know why I can't see your layouts big, but I'll go into the gallery to take a closer look! It's wonderful to get a review of the old kits like this...! :)

I love them all so much.
It's so amazing that you still have them all :)
Cute cute stories.

I hope your head is better. I'd wondered where you were.

What a fab idea! They're all lovely - and I'm so impressed that you still know all the kit names!!

I've kept the remains of lots of the CD kits together, still in their bags, for SO long, until this weekend, when I took any kit that was over a year old and split it up, getting rid of bits I knew I'd never use, and sorting the rest into my existing stash. It felt great at the time - and now I wish the old kits were still together and I could do something like this!! ::) ;D

I have thought about breaking the kits up and I do break them up once most everything is used up. But I have many that I have used very little of (I was in grad school for 2 years) so I have kept most of them together. I will take a picture of my kit storage and share it here later. It is nice to have it altogether in one spot instead of hunting for papers and embellishments that match, that takes too long. I also like the fact that I can pull more current supplies from current kits and use with my older kits. It adds a little more life to the kits I have.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I loved working with the older kits. It was like finding new treasures!
