Sharing another Citrus Twist layout with you.  I really love how this feel together.  I started this layout by wanting to use all those little circles that came in the Studio Calico Sundrifter die cuts shapes.  After I had the circles down I just started layering the embellishments.

I cut out the numbers from some paper that came in the kit.

Sidewalk Chalk ~ Citrus Twist

Good Morning!!  Sorry for the lack of post but the past week has been bounding time for me and baby I.  We are learning each other and it has been fun and yet trying. 

So today I wanted to share another layout I made with the June Citrus Twist kit.  I'm pretty sure there are a few still available to purchase and honestly you won't want to miss this kit. This layout was created using an old sketch Kasia designed.

Elle's Studio Sketch

I had some time to scrap yesterday so I dug out my May Citrus Twist kit and created a layout using this week sketch from Elle's Studio.  I also used the May Kit from Elle's Studio.  Elle's new kit comes out June 10th and it looks amazing.  I so glad she started doing these little limited ed. kits with her tags. 

Here is the sketch I used:
