Welcome to the C'est Magnifique Kits Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  I'm glad you stopped by the C'est Magnifique Kits Blog Hop. I am Valerie Serfozo, and I've been with C'est Magnifique Kits since the very beginning.  I love the unique kits Leslie puts together!  I have the honor of being the design team coordinator, which allows me to work with a team of very talented women (as you will find out as you participate in the blog hop).  

During the blog hop you will find a lot of inspiration and fun prizes along the way.  Each member of the design team will be posting layouts they've created using the May kit, and I'm sure you will love them.  Our May guest designer, Tracey Young, and three manufacturers (Les Papiers de Pandore, Blue Fern Studios,  and Webster's Pages) will also be participating in our Blog Hop.  

I'd like to start by showing you the May Kit, which is filled with beautiful paper from Les Papiers de Pandore and Webster's Pages:




Each month, C'est Magnifique offers 2 add-ons that coordinate so well with the kit:

The May Flower Add-on:

The May Embellishment Add-on:

I'd like to show you a couple of layouts I created using the May Kit:

This is my granddaughter who just turned 16.  It hardly seems possible that she is driving!  But I am so glad I have scrapbooks that she loves to look through with memories dating back to her birth.





I love the various looks you can achieve from this kit.  My niece, Makenzie, is so full of energy, but thankfully I was able to capture this angelic moment.




I have put together a prize package that I would like to send to one of you who becomes a follower of my blog (if you are not already a follower), and who leaves a comment on this post.  I'm sure I will find a couple of other things to throw in there before I send the package to one of you.


Here's what you need to do now:

1. Visit each blog listed below. I should be the last one you visit before returning to the C'est Magnifique Blog, but in case you missed any, you can start from the beginning.
2. Leave a comment on each blog (and become a follower, if required).
3. Return to the C'est Magnifique Blog and leave a comment letting us know you completed the hop.

You have until midnight US EST on April 28th to complete our hop. The winners will be posted shortly thereafter.

Here are links to the participants in the Blog Hop:

Brit Sviggum  
Les Papiers de Pandore   
Camilla Ekman  
Webster's Pages   
Erin Blegen  
Keren Tamir  
Larissa Albernaz

Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck to all of you!
