It also includes the following sketch by the amazingly talented SuePup:

And the following layout is my take on the sketch. It features a photo of one of my son's friends, and I love the photo, Abby is such a Natural Beauty and the Donna Salazar papers were perfect for her photo.

 I started with a layer of a grayish blue card stock from my stash and then layered on the Donna Salazar paper after distressing the edges with my Donna Salazar Zutter and then water distressing the side to reveal the paper underneath. I love Donna Salazar's products the more I work with them the more I am hooked on her high quality, perfect for my style products, and this kit contained her Botanique papers which are just gorgeous, and heavy duty which is perfect for all that distressing I love to do.

Before adhering the top paper layer onto the card stock, I masked the edge of it with a brick skeleton stencil and painted over it with modeling paste and while the stencil was still on, I took a stencil brush and dabbed on some Tattered Angels Glam. I then took some White Mud Puddles and painted in some of the bricks to give my layout some of that rough texture that lends visual interest. I then created some flowers using some of the Donna Salazar paper and Donna Salazar's Bitty Blossoms Die. The leaves are from the Kaisercraft Magnolia Stickers included in the kit.

 For the laced layer I cut another piece of the Donna Salazar paper from the kit into a wide strip, punched the edges, cut it down the middle, set eyelets and then  took some of the cheesecloth from the kit, misted it with Tattered Angels Riptide mist, and laced the strip up, leaving the top unlaced so that I could fold it down and pop one of the Prima Allegra Dove Flowers from the kit into the opening, letting the little charms attached to the flower flow over.

I cut a mat from the Jellibean Soup Corrugated Paper that came with the kit, painted it with gesso then added modeling paste, tinted glitter glass and some more of that misted cheesecloth onto it. I then took that gorgeous photo of Abby and placed it onto the mat.

 I took another Prima Allegra Dove Flower, a hand crafted flower, a Prima Primmers Peach Flower from the Floral Add on and some more of the leaves that I fussy cut from the Kaisercraft Magnolia stickers to form the flower layer at the corner of the photo.

To finish the layout off, I added one of the Webster's Pages Fabric Tickets from the kit to the top corner of the photo mat and created the "Natural" part of the title with some stash Alphas and then traced around them with a Tim Holtz Marker to add emphasis.  I used the Oh So Shabby Chic Butterflies that were created by me for this kit and added a ZVA pearl flourish butterfly trail.

This next layout is a Vintage look layout, featuring a Vintage Image that I purchased from an online store that sells really nice, high quality Georgia House Publishing images. I titled it Buds And Blossoms.

I used lots of layers of the Kaisercraft Papers from the kit, distressing the edges, and cutting them into different shapes. The crochet lace with the ribbon running through it was from the kit.

Here you can see all the layers under the photo that I created using the papers, the Kaisercraft Magnolia stickers from the kit, the Kaisercraft Rub ons  and the Creative Scraps - Heartwarming Vintage Birds and Blossoms from the Embellishment Add On.

The little bird on the wreath and the ones in the corner push down were fussy cut from the  Creative Scraps - Heartwarming Vintage Birds and Blossoms from the Embellishment Add On, and then Stickled up for texture. The sweet little wreath is also from the Embellisment add on and the little flowers are ones that I hand dyed to match my layout and the little nest was from my stash.

The gorgeous vine is the Prima Songbird Vine from the Embellishment add on. and the branch on the corner fold down is one of the Kaisercraft Magnolia Stickers from the kit.
