Week Of Layouts Final Day & Giveaway

Good Morning!! Today is sadly the last day of layouts for this week. I want to thank everyone who stopped by my blog this week and left such sweet comments. Hopefully I will be able to do another week long of layouts using K Andrew Design Art Stamps in a couple months. I really had fun and I hope you did too!! So for my final layout I did one from our trip to Niagara falls but this time my daughter is not in the pictures!!

What I used:
K Andrew Design Art Stamps : Splashtastic summer :Here comes the splash
                                                 Pirate Party Image set: Mermaid & Palm Tree
Zooballoo Cartridge: border for the pictures welded together on my gypsy
Create A Critter Cartridge: Palm Trees cut at 2.5"
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels Eight
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Splashtastic Summer Buy HERE

Pirate Party Buy HERE

This layout was different for me as I used the image stamps as background, but I think it turned out pretty good!! When you go to see the whales at Marineland they tell you where it is that you will get the wettest. We stood in the "splash" zone and thought how bad could it be? Well after the show was over it looked like  we had been in the shower with our clothes on, my daughter and I were wet from head to toe!! It was fun thought!!

I hope you enjoyed my week of layouts. Don't forget that there is a giveaway for commenting on the posts this week. A Set of K Andrew Design Art Stamps winners choice!!

1.You must me a follower (Canadian's and American's only)
2.To win you must comment on at least one of the posts during this week(starting Monday and ending Today). One comment per day, if you comment on all the posts you will have 5 chances to win.
3.Today I am asking you which of my layouts was your favorite from this week and why? Please make sure you leave you email address as well.

 I will pick a winner on Saturday January 7th at midnight EST and announce it on Monday the 9th of January. I have decided instead of drawing a name from a hat to use to all the work (I had way more comments then I expected).

This week I really wanted to show you how versitile K Andrew Design Art Stamps are and I hope I did a good job. I love working with the stamps, they are so easy to mix and match. So what are you waiting for head on over to the store and pick up a few, you won't regret it!! At least $1 from each stamp sold is donated to a different charity and that is the one thing I love about Kristal is her generosity and her big heart. It makes me feel good when I purchase a set of stamps knowing I am making a difference in someone elses life!!

Also don't forget Kristal has two new full sets of stamps for pre order and a mini that you get for free when you order BOTH of the new sets or when you spend $25 or more in the store. Here are the sets

  2. I have really enjoyed your week of layouts, Kristan!! I love how you used the image stamps for the background on this one!! And the wave border around the pictures is so creative and awesome!!

    It is hard to choose a fav because you did such a great job on all of them, but I really loved Day 2...your daughter playing the piano and the accompanying video :)

    Your DT Sister :)

  3. I have really enjoyed seeing all of your layouts! I am really going to try to do more layouts this year! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. All of your layouts were wonderful. I have two favorites though. The piano one and the baking one. I just realized that for the baking one I didnt tell you my favorite thing to make. I think it would have been pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. Yummy!

  7. Super fun! Love the wave border! My favorite lay-out from the week was your recipe one. I love all the cute cuts and the adorable recipe! Already a follower! TFS! abusybee24atcoxdotnet

  8. All your layouts were nice. Hard to chose. But I love water animals and tropical type adventures so this marine life layout will be my fav. I like that you used your stamps for a background, it makes for a unique paper every time.

  13. you did a great job with them all but my fave is the circles... i love the way it jumps out at you...great job on them all.... :) lindaplusthree at yahoo dot com

  14. Kristan,
    I have to say that I love the Pooh and character lo as my favorite. Maybe thats because Eeyore is my favorite character of all time.
    You did a great job on all of them.
    Thanks for sharing,

  15. Kristan, another fabulous layout. I really like this layout, but i cant choose a favorite.

  16. I just love this layout too!! I didn't know there was a Marine World at Niagra Falls! Of course, I've never been there either. It looks like you guys had an absolute blast though.

    I'm glad you liked the Swagbucks post. I've gotten SO much stuff from just for doing Swagbucks the past few years. On top of the stuff I listed, I've also gotten a few games from them for Christmas presents, and I got my daughter an AMAZING digital stainless steel crock pot for Christmas last year...I've gotten lots of music downloads, oh and an old die cutter that Xyron used to make WAY before I got a Cricut. It only cuts up to 4x4 inches! Haha!

    I'll email you and try to give you a few tips, but I think I listed them all in the article. Persistance is about the best one I can think of!!

  17. What a great layout! Marineland is so much fun. I still have fond memories of trips there as a child. Your daughter will treasure her memories as well - especially with the pages you are creating for her!
