Northern Exposure Released Eh!

I have been beyond anxious about Natalie's new kit - Northern Exposure!! I was so inspired by the Creative Team's layouts I wanted to create a page that showed my favorite aspects of this kit. Honestly, I love it all. Natalie has included wonderful textured papers, 2 masks with mats, evergreens and pine cones, coins, and the cutest critters. Epcot's Canadian Pavilion is one of my favorites to explore but, hands down, the best steak to ever pass your lips is at Le Cellier. Like Buttah!! Of course this kit would also be great for ANY layout with a country, forest, camping, wilderness, or frontier theme.

Here is the preview, notice the waterfall - it is awesome!

My girls and I went to WDW for a few days last month and had a great time. Previously, we had only gone into Canada (Epcot) to have dinner at Le Cellier. This was the first time we really spent time in the Canadian pavilion exploring and shopping. My daughters are 3 and 5. You would think they were 13 and 15 the way they migrate to a phone. Like moths to a flame! The template I used here is available for free at the (April 5th) Tuesday Template Challenge at Scrap Matters. The template was designed by Jady Day Studio. The template would be great for the 4 park pictures!

Is that not the cutest moose you have ever seen!!

My family and I lived in Massachusetts for 5 years. We drove to Maine several times a year, especially in the summer to visit the LL Bean Flagship store in Freeport with the surrounding outlet shops. I was so thrilled when I saw the birch elements and alpha, the goose, mama and baby bear and, of course, the moose all included in the kit. Reminded me a lot of Maine. I was going to do a Le Cellier layout but I couldn't wait to play with the critters. I have no idea how the waterfall element made me think of the geyser at Wilderness Lodge. I made the geyser from the water in the rock-waterfall element.

Just for stopping by, I made you a little something special. Enjoy! Download HERE
