giveaway pics and Crocheting

First of all - isn't this vintage photo frame so cool. Its by Rhonna Farrer and i just bought the kit over at two peas - inspired by a layout done by Kelly Goree using the same frames. Anyways- the story behind this picture - i was asking my grandma a while back if she knew how to crochet and if she could teach me because i had just bought a 'how to' book at JoAnnes and really really want to try it - the vintage trims and flowers - love them. She said she didn't know how - but my grandpa Grant (her second husband) who had passed away DID crochet. Well yesterday - my dad came over and brought me a sack from my grandma of Grant's old Crocheting things. Needles, books, yarn.............look how old that Mcalls book is - its from the late 50's to the mid 60's. THe other one is from the 50's - the open side on the left. SO COOL. So now i'm inspired - if i can just figure it out now!!
Those of you who havn't entered the giveaway yet - you still have a few days - make sure you do it on the post below - but this is just a fraction of what will be in the box. The paper in this picture includes the entire line. 2 dream street lines and on Pink Paislee - there is more paper (American Crafts, MME.............i'm not going to tell you EVERYTHING that's going to be in there -some of it needs to be a surprise - right?). Also some exclusive stamps from Label Tulip, Scarlet Lime and Studio Calico. Ink, Ribbon, Rubons, Cardstock, Stickers, Stamps - i've gone through and the value of this box is going to be WELL over $100.00 and none of it is used - so ENTER ENTER ENTER! Here is a fun layout i did using the Audrey line for a post over at the Lily Bee BLog. Go check out a fun Mini album by Jill Sprout and a layout be Katrina.
I used Maya Mist and glimmer mist on those cardboard alphas by Jillibean Soup! Love them. The leaves were all cut out with my Sillouhette. LOVE IT>
Card was made using Audrey too! - that Coffee Stain stamp is from Studio CAlico - my fave!

Thanks for stopping by - i will be back on FRIDAY with a WINNER! So make sure you enter!
