Layouts to share...

I enjoyed my week of vacation, I took the time off and didn't do anything but relax around the house and doing some crafty things that I really like.  I am almost caught up on my project life book.  I have taken pictures everyday and the info is store in my momento app I just am behind on printing the pictures and creating the pages.  But I am closer to being done and I am happy about that.

I also recently joined Studio Calico, a monthly kit club and I love the first kits I received.  I really had a lot of fun putting together these layouts.

So this layout is my favorite, it reminds me of the way I used to scrapbook, I loved using quotes or poems as my titles.  This is an old picture of my now 15 yr old, back in her messy eating days, lol.  I used some white cardstock from my stash but the paper in the frames if from the Drive In addon and I also mixed in some papers from Summer of '69. The colored butterflies I cut from paper from the Mama's Porch addon the white one I just punched from white cardstock.  The script font I cut with my cameo and the white letters are from Pebbles and they were in the 5 & Dime addon kit.



This is my main kit (Summer of '69) only layout .  When I saw this background paper I knew I wanted to use it for some of the parasailing pictures from our vacation. It was a perfect fit. I made the quote brads with my tool and I really like how the title sort of frames the picture of my daughter.
 


For this one I used paper & mini markets from Summer of 69, I used paper and washi from 5 & Dime and I used paper, butterflies & washi from Mama's Porch.  I also painted three of the wood veneer bicycles to match as well.  I added in the Colorbok chipboard frames but just painted them to match.
