Birthday Girl

Today I wanted to share another layout I created with the Gossamer Blue August Kit.  I just LOVE the colors in this kit. And the fun banners are perfect for a birthday layout.

So literally the day after her birthday my husband found this "I am 2" shirt in her closet.  I forgot I had bought, so I put it on her to do some 2 year pictures.  I had her try to give me 2 on her fingers you can see she is trying to say "2".  And she loved looking at the shirt.

Another close up where you can see I used the tissue paper that the kit was wrapped it.  You have to use everything right?! lol I love using things that aren't scrapbooking.

Tubing Time

***Giveaway HERE for an August Add-on***

So down in Georgia my friend Corrie and her hubby rented a boat for us to all go out on.  I was so much fun!  The kids got to go tubing and swimming!  I used the August kit from Citrus Twist to create this layout.

I took and cut out circle and then misted them.  I then took some of the string that is in the kit and put around the circle to make them pop.
 Here is my journaling and I love the pretty ribbon that comes in the kit.  It matches great!

I love the mist that come in the kit!  Lots of layering!

Color Challenge

So over at Paper Crafter's Corner we are talking about challenges and why do them and why we like them.  I love challenges because if gets you thinking out side the box, helps you get motivated, and helps you use up your stash.  So I took on the color challenge over at Write.Click.Scrapbook.  Love the color and the inspiration piece...well I couldn't take my eye off it.  So I had to recreate it in my layout.  So here is my take on the color challenge.

Love the cute MME pieces and the SC circle frame.

Such fun playing with different font.

My First Gallery Reveal

Today is the gallery reveal over at Elle's Studio and it is the first time for the new DT to show their creations!!  I'm feel so honored to work with Elle and the rest of the wonderful team!

Here is one of my layouts "Oh the Places You'll Go" (Dr. Seuss title).  This layout was so fun to make.  I wanted to document all the states we went through on our vacation.  I used the new Summer Lovin' tags and also so new flairs from Paper Play Studio.
 And the reason for that is I have never been any further then the states that touch mine.  So this was big for me and my family!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Hope I inspired you to use those state sign pictures :)
