I Believe ~ and a lot more

As promised today ~ I thought I would show you the full kit that Bunny and I made for our dearest friend Jazzy. You all know Jazzy, she is my wonderful CT team leader and a very dear friend who has been my encourager and supporter since BEFORE I started selling at DSO. Jazzy was also one of the first people to comment on my very FIRST LO that I ever put up in a gallery! We go a long way back and she has become not only a very good friend, she had become part of my family too. (yup- even to my boys).

So when Jazzy lost her beloved Daughter Lori a few months ago ( with Jazz being in hospital herself!) it broke my heart. She asked me to make a special kit for her with fairies in it to help her scrap Lori's memory's and to help her keep her memory alive for Lori's sons ( her grandsons) - Lori had such a thing for fairies. She told me Lori used to say that *it only takes a Fairy* when things were hard or getting her down. Bunny who is one of my dearest friends and knows Jazzy well too ,jumped into help with this one.

So Jazzy, here is I Believe from Our hearts to Yours ~

There are so many elements in this kit (54 in all) that I did two previews to show you some of them - they are still not all shown.

kb-BC_Ibelieve_lights_02_LRG

3 sets of papers make up this kit - so it can give you ENDLESS results and feels to different LO's~ These are the lights

kb-BC_Ibelieve_darks_03_LRG

These are the Darks ~ which give a wonderful enchanted feel to your LO's

kb-BC_Ibelieve_botanicals_01_LRG

and the watercolour botanicals which have a stunning soft realistic edge to them

YUP- this kit IS HUGE ~ and it's one of those that because it was made for someone special it just all seem to come together and grew at a furious pace that we eventually had to say *WOOOAAAH*- lol

Its on SALE @ 25% off at the moment ( for one week only) and it's ONLY $5.63 !!

And I'd like to show you a few LO's  from my CT team today too ( yup it's going to be a LONG post - but it's all eye candy and I just can't NOT put them here today)

All it takes is a fairyRS

From Jazzy herself with her daughter Lori ~ Jazzy is also under the weather again but sent this through to me this morning- LOVE YOU GIRL and I know just how much this LO means to you - MWAH

Everytime you post about the reason behind this kit, I get a hullump (HUGE LUMP) in my throat.

I can't stop scrapping and all I know is that you don't need Red Bull, Energiser or Duracell, you only need the I Believe kit.

Thanks for the ad on, I was looking for that green bow last night LOL.

Peggie said...

What beautiful layouts! Thank you for this lovely kit. Can't wait to try it.

Kim we always feel so helpless when someone we love loses someone, always wish there was something we could do to make the road ahead a little easier. What you and Bunny have done is just wonderful, and will touch that family for years to come.
Big hugs to you both,
Erika

Thank you for the freebie! :)

Kim you and Bunny are just so super sweet and so generous with all you do to help others.

The kit is just so very beautiful and I know that Jazzy would be so over the moon with the job you have both done for her in tribute to her darling daughter. It is just such a sad story and my heart goes out to her and her family.
