The 28 Blog Hop!

welcome! if finding yourself here from Kate's blog- hi! my name is Leigh, nice to meet you :)
When my sweet friend Jamie asked if i would be interested in a doing a blog-hop to celebrate her 28th birthday, I JUMPED at the chance. Jamie is one of the sweetest, articulate, talented people that i have been blessed to know. make sure to wish her a HAPPY 28TH!!

 (About Me)
For those who don't know me, my name is Leigh. I am in my late 20s (a fact i refuse to acknowledge) a mother to the most amazing 6 year-old boy ever and wife to j- the love of my life. I manage both a high end handbag store & a makeup store, two of  my favorite things in the world. Party planning is my lifes passion and i love to throw dinner parties ("candlelight suppers"- bahaha!) if you follow me on twitter  (or read this blog!) you'll know i'm THE girliest sci-fi girl you'll ever meet. i live and breathe for Bane, fashion, Doctor Who, shopping, Alice in Wonderland, traveling, glitter, ANYTHING pink, nail polish  & Hello Kitty.

(My 28 Project)
When Jamie presented the "28" concept, i was intrigued and mulled it over for a few days. and then BAM it hit me. 28 Pieces. and within a split second  i knew exactly what i wanted to create & share.
28 Pieces. This page is SO me, so RIGHT NOW, that it brings a smile to my face every single time i look at it. I used my Studio Calico Calico "Brooklyn Flea" kit + "Salvaged" add-on, with a couple sheets of blue & purple cardstock and some PP from Studio Calico "Autumn Press" and "Abroad" collections, and the star of the show, the Fiskars XL puzzle piece punch.
 it is JUST. SO. ME. :)

 Jamie has assembled some truly fantastic girls in the 28 blog party- make sure to comment each one for a chance to win the grand prize- a $28* voucher to the online retailer of your choice: Studio Calico, Two Peas in a Bucket or Simon Says Stamp. (* okay, its really $30 but $28 fits the theme just SO MUCH better- hee!)

  4. OH COOL! Clever use of the puzzle pieces! May I scraplift? :)

  5. How fun! I love those puzzle pieces, what a great idea!

  6. I pretty much never scrapbook about myself. When I first started, when I was 13, it was mostly about my friends & things we did together. Then when I got married and had my first child almost everything became about them. I really need to scrapbook more about myself so that the kids will have that to look back on.

  7. Love the puzzle pieces and that fact I have found another sophisticated HK fan
