What's your dream?! LGC Blog Party Day 1

Hi friends! I'm so glad you're able to join us for another Lucky Girl Crafts blog party. If you're new to the party, check out the post above for more details. The Lucky Girls have prizes in store for you, you'll just need to follow along!

This month's kit is more kid-themed, so I thought it'd be fun to take a more mature spin on it. The embellies this month are so luscious, and can be used in so many ways that it's really easy to stretch the kit for all kinds of different projects. Don't you just love it when that happens?

I'm the guest FITGirl at ScrapFIT this month (wootwoot!) my first layout goes along with their challenge prompt, "Dream".

One of my biggest dreams is to travel the world with my hubby, with Italy being in my #1 dream destination. I've never been, but my 2010 calendar was filled with gorgeous architecture, historical sites and rolling vineyards. You could almost taste the delicious food! What better place to get great pictures for a place you've never been?

I used one of the main 13x13 pictures for the large photo, and just traced a plate to get the circle. I took some of the thumbnail prints from the back of the calendar for the smaller photos, then embellished with the yummy scrappy goodness from the February Lucky Girl Crafts kit. (Who doesn't love Prima flowers?!)

For the centers of the flowers, I added a big dollop of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, and sprinkled a bunch of seed beads in various colors. I was so pleased when it turned out better than expected!

And now, finally - do you want a chance to win some Lucky Bucks?

Each day of the blog party (Feb. 1-3) we'll have another chance for you to enter to win $7 Lucky Bucks to the Lucky Girl store. At the end of the party, the Lucky Girls will each choose one winner from their blog who played along. Here's how you can enter:
