SNEAK PEAK OF MY NEW KIT!


I've had a lot of messages asking me when Miranda was going to be joining the other Scraps & the City Kits!.... Well GOOD NEWS she's on her way!
As usual there are some cheeky references to the "Sex & The City" movie, such as Brooklyn Bridge papers and a frothy cappuccino embellishment! For the color scheme, I was inspired by Miranda's auburn hair & her son Brady, so I blended burnt orange and blue tones. This is such a versatile combination...great for both grown-up and children's projects.
Here's a sneak peak of some of the elements:
This kit will be launched on March 1st with a blog Freebie!
