I have been working with these beauties:
for the past couple of weeks (in between hacking coughs and sneezing marathons from spring allergies that may have gotten a bit out of hand--but I'm back now, almost to normal, whatever that is).
Here's what I have made so far, though I'm still working on more because these kits are so loaded.
From the May Elite:
|Banners, birdies, and baby clothes all in one paper? Just adore this Dear Lizzy line!|
And that's little me up there. I swear, if they still made this wallpaper, I would hang it in my laundry room.

Always have to put a butterfly on layouts of myself, don't know why really, it's just my thing.
|Just love how all these papers coordinate so well together (an almost monochromatic LO)|
Another one of my childhood pics--this is me on my 2nd birthday sporting a crafty little apron--who would've guessed?!
|And some close-ups cuz I like them!|
|Created this LO from the sketch from our summer crop going on now--more on that at the bottom of this post.|
My little guy with his "almost broken" collar bone.
|How cute are these papers? Eeek!|
Went a little whimsical on this one. I've wanted to do a stitched block border for a while, and these papers seemed like the perfect ones to use.
|And a little card: this was actually the first project I created with the kit. It's always so freeing to hack into brand new paper. Kind of gets you over all those inhibitions.|
From the June Elite:
|Another sketch from the summer crop (this one will be posted later this summer, so you're getting a little sneak!)|
My crazy rocker boys.
|Could these papers be any more perfect for these pics?!|
Oh, and speaking of crazy dudes, that would be my middle up there.
|I hope my title is readable to people other than me: 2 cool 4 school|
And I'm 2 corny 4 my own good!
|Who says boy pages can't have flowers? Not me, nope definitely not me.|
|This paper came just like this--I simply stitched on some buttons, matted the photos on a border punched mat, trimmed with ribbon, and added a sticker title--so easy!|
I often forget to snap photos of my boys with other family members. So glad I got these precious shots of Maddox and his Auntie.
|Another crop sketch card--this one posts this week at Scrapbook Heaven|
A card for Dad.
From the June Petite:
|A quick 15 minute page.|
|Tried too hard with that bunting.|
I had some high hopes for this one, and it just didn't turn out the way I had envisioned. Some pages are like that.
|Doesn't book print make everything look better? I think it does.|
I took this photo for fun on Valentine's day. Never thinking I would scrapbook it. But it was perfect, and I will jot down my favorite books on the pull out tag.
Well, there you have it. I'm tired from typing so much (and it probably shows in what I just wrote).
So about that crop: Scrapbook Heaven is having a summer-long crop for the next 12 weeks (week one of the 12 just passed). Sketches on Monday, Color Combos on Wednesday, and challenges on Friday. Bonus weekends once a month, along with monthly stash lists and title/quote lists. Play along for points and be entered to win some great prizes. Stop by the forum and check it out.
