Turning Japanese Kit by Natalie's Place Designs

Konichiwa! Natalie released a beautiful new kit today called Turning Japanese which has a black, red and white color palette. Take a look!

12 Papers, loads of elements, a black alpha with a red glitter trim and, my favorite, the masks. I used one of the masks enlarged and off centered it here in my first layout, then wanted to continue the simplistic beauty of Japanese design so I added the frame I made from ribbon. My family moved to Hawaii just before it became a state and all but my uncle have since moved back to the "main land". I grew up with a great appreciation for Japanese culture and design. The Japanese pavilion in Epcot truly captures the history and beauty of Japan culture. One of my favorite pavilions in all of the World Showcase. I hope to visit the Land of Rising Sun someday and, of course, visit Disney Sea and Tokyo Disneyland.

My husband's favorite restaurant in all of Disney World was Teppan Edo, #1 on his must eat list. When I first saw the kit this layout came to mind. Our girls were 2 and 4 years old here. They did REALLY well mastering the chopsticks! My grandparents would be so proud. (I was not allowed to use a fork when we would have Asian food for dinner.)

I just love the black glitter mask included in the Turning Japanese kit! I also have a freebie I would love to share with you. Also stop by Natalie's Little Corner of the World for the kit and a freebie and also Linda and Lisa's blogs. Cynthia will be back soon from Disney World.
