Taylored Expressions September Key Ingredients Blog Hop...


Hey, everyone!

I know I shouldn't be surprised right now at how QUICKLY this month has flown by, but OH MY GOODNESS it's the 20th!

You know what that means?  It's time for the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients BLOG HOP with the KI team!   First of all, a HUGE congrats to Taylor Van Bruggen, her husband Jon, and the whole family on the birth of the beautiful Madelyn Grace!  She is a GORGEOUS baby and I'm so happy for my friend and new Mommy, Taylor!  She is SO cute!

Have you guys had a chance to check out all the new releases and September Key Ingredients kit over in the TE store?  If not, definitely head over and see all the CUTE new releases this month!

I was excited to pull out my "Make a Wish" set and create this card for today's hop.  The inside is actually a money and/or gift card holder!   My kids' classmates are famous for dropping the last minute bday invite into someone's backpack, so I always like to have cards on hand for this type of event.  This months' KIT is PERFECT to make cards that could easily suit a girl OR a boy...check it out:

Here's a close up of the buttery smooth "Buttercup" liquid pearls as the 'frosting' for my cake- I think this is my favorite color of liquid pearls, yet!

Have you SEEN the amazing projects on the Key Ingredients Blog this month by our KI team?  If not, be sure to check it out, along with my own S'mores kit!  Here's a little sneak peek of that post:
