Default Tell a Tale with KCB *CLOSED WINNER ANNOUNCED*


The lucky winner is Trish! I'll message you shortly with your prize!


Happy NSD! Storytelling is a HUGE part of what we do with documenting our stories and I'm not sure if you're like me but I struggle so bad with the journaling part of scrapbooking. I don't have the best writing skills and my grammar could definitely use some work..

For a contest this weekend I thought we could have a little fun writing a story together. The premise is to just write a few sentences to continue on with the story. The rule is you have to use a title of one of my kits as part of the story!

I'll start off with the story and the next person will continue it and so on..continue the story with the person who posts directly above you. Hopefully that makes sense. Please post a photo of the kit you're using for part of your story.. Feel free to add in as many characters as you want. Add yourself to the story, add other designers to the story or sugarbabes whatever your heart desires. Maybe we can make a silly and entertaining story lol.
Here is a link to my store to find all of my kits: https://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/s...me.php?cat=280

We'll play this game for the duration of NSD weekend and I'll choose a random winner monday night at 10pm EST
**************

Once upon a time there was a scatterbrained designer named Kristin who lived in a small mountain town in BC, Canada. She loved to explore and experience new places. Deep down all she really wanted was to be wild & free.

So on her first wild adventure, she decided to go over the river on a raft. And then the next day...

And while she was frolicing, a sudden cold snap hit (hello, Canada!)

But that didn't stop Kristin, because she was a free spirit and just kept adventuring.

She decided to build herself a shelter and wait out the storm, hoping that there would be Blue Skies Ahead.

The next day she woke to the sound of birds and the lovely smell of evergreen and found herself in a beautiful forest...

Kristin was in awe of the natural beauty all around her, and she set off again to keep exploring it. As she wandered . . .

She didn't have to wait long to find out. To her surprise, Kristin had found her way into an Enchanted Forest.

Some Good Eats, of course! So Kristin sat down with the woodland creatures and had a delicious meal before adventuring off again.

The woodland creature pointed to a very unusual tree and said - open the door in that tree and you will step into a polar vortex! There you will find all kinds of frozen treats and desserts!

Enjoying a cocktail on the beach was like being kissed by the sun.

But Kristin did some Soul Searching and realized that she would rather continue her journey alone instead of staying with Jamie.

So she went on and continued on her own to far away land. After all she was a big dreamer and stopping now wasn't an option. Where would she go next?

Kristen followed a winding road that lead her to the ocean, where she sat in the sand enjoying her coastal dreams.

Kristin was enjoying the sounds of the ocean, but after a while she realised she could hear one of her favourite songs playing on the radio inside. She couldn't resist, so she ran in to TURN IT UP. It wasn't long before....

Feeling relaxed her mind drifted to how much she spent in the iNSD sales and immediately started hyperventilating. Luckily, she spotted a hot air balloon and decided to go for a ride to take her mind off of her huge credit card bill. She had to remind herself to keep holding on in case she fell out.
