Hey everyone! The July gallery is live over at Scarlet Lime and it's a pretty one thanks to the gorgeous July kit aptly named "Wildflowers." The color combination in this month's kit was just so pretty and I got to work with PINK which I don't do very often in my house of boys!
I created two layouts with the main kit - the first is all about ... ME! LOL! I don't scrap about myself often but since the colors in the kit went so well with this photo of myself I took the opportunity to get a few things down on paper.
I'm a big fan of using my Copic markers to alter the color of my letter stickers to suit my needs and that's exactly what I did here with the fabric Thickers from American Crafts.
I also played around a bit with my journaling strips leaving enough room to highlight certain words with the tiny letter stickers from Cosmo Cricket.
For my second layout I focused on some photos I took of Darian the day we released our Painted Lady Butterflies. Just a side note - if you have young school aged children at home and are looking for a fun and easy at home "science" project to do with them I absolutely suggest purchasing a butterfly garden. We received little jars of tiny caterpillars and watched them grow over a few weeks until they finally formed their chrysallis and then emerged as beautiful butterflies. The boys just loved releasing them and learned a lot through the whole process.
And here are a few detail images of this layout ...
That's it for me today. I have two more layouts to share that I created with the Frugal Fab kit this month. I have to say I think I preferred that kit even more than the main because the colors and papers were definitely more my style. Be sure to stop by tomorrow when to see what I created!
