Welcome to the Cakewalk blog hop! October Afternoon light the candles for us with this beautiful collection. I know that i fell in love with it as soon as I saw it the first time! Your next stop after my blog is Becky's.  Be sure to hop to the OA blog as they have a super duper grand prize on their blog of a Cakewalk Collection Kit!

I made this page for the October Afternoon booth and the picture was so perfect! And yes, I didn't feel bad in scrapbooking this picture twice because i don't own this page... it's in the OA office.  But i still love it. I simply love this Cakewalk line. I feel it's very soft and sweet and even romantic... just up my alley. :)


These are a few other OA products that i seem to use all the time... on all my pages! :) So you can check them out in the mean time... till cakewalk hits the stores.


Today I am giving away a pack of Cakewalk journal cards... Just leave me a comment! October Afternoon is sponsoring the prize! The winner will be announced on May 9th...

 Now be sure to leave comments on the other blogs as well! You have lots of opportunities to win this awesome collection.







love and a kiss

Julie J said...

I'd never really thought about who owned pages made for manufacturers before. Everyone always dreams of having all the lovely stash for free but making your best work and then not owning it must be hard (it's not quite the same as making something with love as a gift for family and friends).
I'm finding it hard knowing that I can't share one of my favourite pages on my blog because it will be published in a magazine.
