Kristy runs an adorable, hand-made, party goods store called The Purple Pug and has an amazing blog by the same name as well. She has an especially cool feature going on right now where she is introducing readers to a new cool blogger/ shop owner each day, and will do it for a year. Check it out, I love it! She is also the Vice President of the new Children’s Party Network. And you also may recall that she is this month’s Inspiration Board Challenge participant. She’s got to be insanely busy yet is always happy, funny, helpful – the list just goes on.

A HUGE thank you to the whole Lockheart family for doing this contest with me! If you haven’t checked out their site lately, you must! It’s been updated and their selection right now is crazy good! It was an amazingly pleasant surprise when I got an email from Jennifer who told me as a thank you for holding this contest, I could pick any purse I want! After much debate (I mean, to me, their purses are like children, you can’t have just one favorite) I chose the Lacey Frame in Navy. I’m so excited to use it! Big thanks to Robyn who has been instrumental in all the logistics in this contest and who was an absolute joy to work with. Thank you to Genette for designing such amazing bags and getting this contest ball rolling. I heart you! THANK YOU LOCKHEART!
I will announce the winner of the inspiration board portion of this contest as well as the prize package winners tomorrow!! Good luck to all of you!

Board #2 – Submitted by Megan

I am so happy that Megan entered this contest because it led me to her wedding inspiration blog called Glamour and Grace. It is gorgeous and it is a new favorite of mine. Here is what she had to say about her inspiration board:
“I really wanted to go with a sophisticated and modern look. The Caprice bag really reminded me of succulents, which are very popular now in weddings, so I used that as the base inspiration. I also tried to play off the fun shapes and circles which I mimicked in the bouquets and the volume in the dress.”

Board #3 – Submitted by Amber

Creator: Amber Moon

Amber did a great job with this board. I love to see the sources for these boards because I learn about sites that I didn’t know about before (like Jonas Peterson, the photographer who took her numbers 2 and 4. Consider me a new fan). Amber is currently working on starting a small paper goods company called Pitbulls and Posies and is hoping to have a website up soon. As I often do, I became Nancy Drew to try to find out more about what Pitbulls and Posies is all about. Turns out, she is amazingly talented and you can see some of her work from HER WEDDING on Style Me Pretty! You must read the story of how she met her mate. So sweet! (And if anyone reading this doesn’t know what Style Me Pretty is, they only feature the best of the best of real weddings).
Follow Pitbulls and Posies on Twitter so you can find out when her site launches!
The baking themed prize package includes:
A baking piece by Villeroy & Boch, a cupcake kit chosen by Traylor Papers, Almond Breeze Milk, a cake, cookie and cupcake decorating idea book, a mini cake stand by A Fabulous Fete, custom cocktail napkins from For Your Party, applesauce and peanut butter from Santa Cruz Organics, $25 gift certificate from Garnish. (For more specific details and photos of the prizes, see here).
To win this baking themed prize package:
1. You must “like” Cupcakes and Cutlery and Lockheart on Facebook.
2. Leave a comment on this post. If the mood strikes you, let Amber know what you think of her board.
3. Check back tomorrow to see if you’ve won and see who the winner of the inspiration board contest is. (If I can’t find your email address based on your comment log in info, I will choose another winner – if you are unsure if I will be able to see it, leave your email info in your comment).

Thank you, Jenny, for submitting this gorgeous board. I mean, seriously, could those water glasses be any prettier? And the kale placecard, what a great find! Jenny also has a blog you should check out. And here is why I love Jenny. She posted her board so all her readers could see what she did for this contest. Then she posted a second board that she created after she decided her board above didn’t have enough Morrocan influence (I totally love this second board too). AND THEN she posted a board of the outfit she would wear to the party. I like the way you roll Jenny!
This party pretty prize package includes:
A variety of nail polish, beanie and scarf by RVCA, four 4-packs ME natural sodas, four pack cds by Brushfire Records, package of thank you notes by Traylor Papers. (to see more details or photos for the prizes see here).
To win this pretty prize package:
1. You must “like” Cupcakes and Cutlery and Lockheart on Facebook.
2. Leave a comment on this post. I imagine Jenny would love to hear some kind words about her board…

Thank you for entering Alyson. I know these boards can be a ton of work, especially to a perfectionist like me. I think you did a great job!!
Although I had said I would post the top 5 boards, I only got 6 so I thought it would be cool if they all had the opportunity to win the Caprice. I sent all of them on to the judges and will announce the winner tomorrow! Don’t forget to come back and check it out!
This post does not have a prize package associated with it so you are not required to leave a comment, but I know that Alyson would love to hear your thoughts on her board. :)
