C'est Magnifique's September Reveal

I truly love having a kit club. Yes - it is way more work than I need, but I love working with all these international papers every month and that was the whole purpose to my creating C'est Magnifique.

So this month we featured Riddersholm Designs again. This is their Huntington Garden collection and it was stunning. I didn't have a lot of time this month, but I did manage to eke out 2 layouts.

This first one is titled "Celebrate Life". This is my family and another while we were at a gala inducting both of our 'boys' into the Wounded Warrior Hall of Fame. Both my Kevin and our friend Joel were both very critically injured more than four years ago. Neither will ever be 'normal' again, but we have learned to celebrate what we do have as you never know when it could all be gone.

This second layout is a photo of Kevin walking with my mom at a little resort in Ruskin, FL last month. You could see how much they were enjoying the stroll through the gardens.

This layout was created using the sketch that will be the challenge on our blog for the month of September. Hop over and take part - you just might win!
