it's a very exciting day!

today at pixie dust paperie we are celebrating our anniversary! can you believe that an entire YEAR has elapsed since pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe made the dream of starting her own papercrafting kit club come true?! nope, me neither, but i am so proud and happy that she invited me to share the fun each month, making projects and meeting fellow pixies from all over the world! if you have a little time today, why not stop over at the pixie blog and say "congrats" to kirsty on this very cool milestone?!

and just like the first day of every month for the past year, today also marks the first "designer preview day" for the new kit, and i am quite honored that the project in question is mine, and it looks a bit like this:

it's an official princess crown, made especially for niece ♥lindsay marie♥ whose birthday is tomorrow! (you might recall that i made a different crown in february for lindsay's sister riley elizabeth.) i hope you'll hop over and check out the official post, because i am pretty pleased with how this turned out, but you just cannot get the whole idea in ONE photo!

but first i am very excited indeed to reveal that this month's special anniversary kit is called BLUE MOON was put together by yours truly! yes, for the second time (the first was in january) miss kirsty gave me the honor of choosinge all the ingredients, and boy did i ever have a GREAT TIME!

i've packed in as many of my favorite crafty necessities as humanly possible: fabulous double-sided papers... elegant fabric flowers... ready-to-alter chipboard... fun epoxy stickers... an awesome alphabet... some tasty vintage goodies from my own personal stash... and OF COURSE it wouldn't be a "laureny" kit without a bit of bling in there, right??! :)

yep, i'm very proud of what's IN the kit, and i'm extremely happy with the projects i've made, but i'm even more excited about what my fellow pixies cheryl nelson, kirsty vittetoe, and our special guest designer jill sarginson have done! don't take my word for it--you can see a little sneaky peek in yesterday's pixie post!

i hope you'll stay tuned for three more awesome designer days coming up, followed by the "big reveal" on october 5th. oh and you'll want to check in at the PDP blog as often as possible this month because i happen to know that kirsty has a few surprises up her sleeve and you never know what might be going on over there if you don't visit! ♥♥♥
