Good Morning!

Hey there! It is my last full week of school - so big smiles everywhere - except when I realize that my little one is going to me a first grader - sigh when did that happen?

Well I just want to share my layouts that I completed with the Work in Progress June Kit -- I can't tell you how fabulous it was - and yes, I say was, because it is gone! Hehe - I used it all - love it when that happens - and I am positive that July's kit will not disappoint either - but that is a story for a later post:)

This page has to be one of my favorites. When I was gathering papers for this photo I loved the way the diecut paper looked - but the precut holes were distracting me AND the rainbow paper was calling my name. So I pleated the paper and adhered it. I loved the end result. And the title came together easily from a strip of paper by WRMK.

This page was a lucky fit. I had just made a shirt for my daughter for her country western day at school. The Martha Stewart pattern paper was the perfect fit/background. And I can't say enough about the Bingo sheets - I love them:)
This one I decided to use some burlap that I was previously using for a project. Again I used the bandana paper for the flowers.

And then I decided to do something fun for my dining table. For the stems I used green pencils that I found in the dollar section at michaels. They were perfect. To make the flowers different heights I just glued the pencils at different heights on the backs of the flowers.

That's it - it was a BLAST workign with this kit! Seriously loved every minute of it! Have a wonderful day!
