Kit Spotlight- Mommy’s Helper

Hello friends! It is that time again. Time to spotlight and awesome Gingerscraps kit. This time I am going to show you the cutest little kit by Pretty in Green called Mommy’s Helper. If any of you have little children around, you know just how much they love to help out. I have a 3 year old who LOVE to put clean dishes away and sweep the floor. This kit is perfect for all those kinds of moments. Some of my favorite elements in this kit are the vacuum, the folded laundry, messy laundry, a washer and dryer, broom, mop, feather duster, and sponge. But there is soo much to this kit! Here is a look at the full bundle-

And here is a LO I did with is. Isn’t that bubble paper so fun?

I checked out the GS Gallery for some more inspiration and here is what I found- Images are linked, go leave some love!

See how cute this kit is? Visit The GS Shoppe here and check it out! Here is a little freebie I made with the super fun kit! Enjoy! DL the Chore Chart HERE

The Siggy challenge was great! Who doesn’t love to say their own name all snazzed up! ūüôā Our random pick winner was:

Here’s what she won:

So have you all checked out our new designers? Are you as excited as I am?!? There is a whole lotta talent going on at Gingerscraps and now with more designers you have more options to get you more cookies which get you more discounts on these great designs! Yay!

Now onto the challenge Trina and Colleen have teamed up to give you a fun new challenge! It’s called All Fall Down! In this challenge they have a template, but all the peices fell down, but that’s okay, that means you can put them back however you want to make your own template for your own layout! Cool! Here’s the template for Sept.

go to the challenge to download it.

There are some further requirements for this challenge:

Your Layout MUST include the following:

  • 3 thin ribbons or ricrac
  • 1 wide ribbon
  • 1 string
  • 3-9 elements (in addition to the ribbons and string listed above)
  • A title
  • Some journaling
  • and The large photo must be framed or bordered

There are also a few variances in the template pieces which we will allow:

  • The 5 photo pieces can be used as ALL photos, but if you choose to only do let’s say 3 photos, the other pieces must than be used as papers
  • The size of one paper can be changed
  • The shape of two papers can be changed
  • Any smaller photos can have small mat or stroke

Here’s some great LOs made for the challenge:

Does that look fun or what? I love the help of a template, but the freedom to move things where ever I want. Want to give it a try? Go to the  All Fall Down challenge! Then come back here and post the link to your LO  in the gallery and post it in a comment here. Next week I’ll randomly select one and that person will win a prize from ME! (Harmonystar).

Bonus РI will give a Brownie point to everyone who comments with their LO link.

 CT & those who have already done the challenge are elligable. Let me see those comments!
