Block Party Giveaway: Layla Grayce – DwellStudio Fun Kits

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

Thank you for entering.  This giveaway is now closed.

The party continues! We’ve got more sizzling summer giveaways for you!

Layla Grayce

Today Simple Kids is honored to have a giveaway from Layla Grayce, whose motto is “love your life, express your style.” This shop is full of beautiful, quality items for the home, for children, and for women.

There are many items from Layla Grayce on my personal wish list, including these Pink Rainbow Pettitskirt Dresses (what a lovely portrait opportunity of my girls that would be) and I think my son Max needs one of these Owl lunch bags.

I’m happy to announce that Layla Grace is going to be giving away one of our favorite products that they carry:  the Dwell Studio Fun Kit.

We’ve been using our Fun Kit (we have the fun transportation theme) while we’ve been on the go this summer.  These handy totes are from Dwell Studios and are made of coated canvas (that we’ve discovered can double as a play dough mat) and include crayons and a scribble pad.

These totes are perfect for long waits at the airport, car rides, or keeping the kids entertained while waiting for your food at a restaurant.

They are child-sized, but can hold more than you might suspect. We’re currently on the road and my oldest daughter has brought along a small box of crayons, a pad of paper, a soft-cover picture book, and a paperback copy of Harriet the Spy in hers. You can fit a mini-tub of play dough in the clear zippered pocket, too.

The kit packs up neatly, fastens securely, and wipes clean.

The Giveaway

Layla Grayce is generously giving away one DwellStudio Fun Kit each  to four winners:

  • two winners will receive the  Paper Dolls print
  • one winner will receive the Transportation print
  • one winner will receive the Gio Lemon Owls print*

*update, the Gio Lemon kit has been discontinued and will be replaced with the Owls Fun Kit

    The transportation one. Cause I’m not a girly girl and neither is my little boy. 😉
