Committing an one-eight-seven

YES! I plan on killing kits! My friends and I have been members of the Scrap-room kit club for several years and just as much as I love the kits and the variety they offer each month it seems that the new month's kit comes around before I even have the chance to get through the current kit so over time I have amassed a healthy stash of kits that I have not even touched (except to ooooh and aaah at my papers).

Just a Few................................

So last night I went through my stash and selected a couple of my faves and now I have to execute a plan to use each kit at least once! Okay so I won't actually be killing kits but I do plan on a little bit of assault on each kit. I have already matched one kit up with a couple of pictures and I am ready to go. Here is my scoreboard to keep track of my progress. As you can see it is blank so far but I am going to try hard to knock them out!

Everyday is a holiday Blog Hop!

I hope you are enjoying the Sketch~n~Scrap blog hop and I hope you got the chance to visit Hillary's blog yesterday and see her awesome Mother and Father's day projects. Today I have some sweet treats for you as I celebrate Sweetest Day, you know everyday really is a holiday.

Sweetest Day is always observed on the third Saturday in October, which fell on Oct. 19 in 2013.

Sweetest Day is an original American holiday not based on any group's religious tradition. It's simply a reminder that a thoughtful word, deed or small gift enriches the life of the recipient as well as the person giving it. Legend has it that Sweetest Day was established around 1922 by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio, candy company employee who wanted to bring happiness to the lives of those who often were forgotten. Kingston and others distributed candy and small gifts to orphans, people confined to their homes and others to show them that someone cared. 

Keeping with the candy theme I thought this would be the perfect chance to use this template that I purchased a while ago here -
These cute little candy dispensers hold about one cup of M&Ms and make cute favors or small treats for co-workers or friends.

And after attending five weddings this year I guess that I am still feeling the love in the air so I made this card perfect for an anniversary or wedding -

And to top off all of this sweetness I have this SWEET paper pack from one of my favorite online retailers- A Cherry on Top- to giveaway featuring Pink Paislee's Hey Kid collection! This collection is so much fun to play with, so be sure to enter.

All you have to do is make sure that you are a follower of the Sketch~n~Scrap main blog, every month we offers both card and layout sketches and a ton of inspiration, you will not be disappointed. AND make sure you leave me a comment so that I know that you have been here, that is it!You have until November 8th, the last day of our hop to enter. I hope you enjoyed my projects and make sure to visit the Sketch~n~Scrap blog tomorrow for another holiday celebration.
