2 of a kind

So...todays layout is a picture of my mom and aunt. I love the old black & white photo booth pic. This months kit totally reminds me of them back in the day. I'm thinking this picture is at least 30+ years old....which means there were probably alot of peace signs around that time :)

So I love open space on my layouts and you know it seems I can't do a layout without a little misting on it! I added a little journaling around the top left corner of the paper. The sticker sheet in this kit is fabulous...I cut the number 2 out of one of the sayings just so I could use the number.

Well ladies that is my creation for the day, hope you all have a fabulous weekend. :)

A Free Spirit & Her Giggles...

This little girl is truly a free spirit and the wonderful Little Yellow Bicycle kit available here was just perfect for a layout all about her.  I did some serious altering/distressing of the papers for this layout.  First I covered the white cardstock in Smooch Spritz Gingersnap which is currently out of stock in the Queen Scraps store but there are so many other colors to choose from here.  Then I used my edge distressing tool and a little ink to rough up the 2" squares of patterned paper.  I created my own flowers using my scalloped circle punch, a pair of scissors, and some Glossy Accents.   The blue cardstock was cut, folded and sewn onto the layout to give the appearance of ribbon and then I used the lower case "b's" flipped over to serve as the other "g's" in my title.  A few hand drawn lines and brads finished off the framing of this adorable little girl and her giggles.  Enjoy!!!

Fun Papers and a LO to share from Little Yellow Bicycle!!

Here is some more fun papers from the Little Yellow Bicycle Kit!!
I used the green lace paper and the Loose Leaf Paper!
The designs on the Loose Leaf paper that I added colors to were blue and white and I wanted to add some more color!
For the clouds I used some Martha Stewart blue ink and I used several different colors with the Copic Markers on the swirls and flowers!
The Copic Markers I purchased from the Queen Scraps store and they have many more colors!
To add some more color I added some brads around the bottom picture,
the journal card, and added a blue acrylic flower to the right hand corner using alcohol ink.
The brads, acrylic flower, and journal card also came with the kit!
The Loose Leaf paper is so fun and so versatile so many different things you could use to add more color!

Thanks for coming by and have a Wonderful Day!

More with the Little Yellow Bicycle Kit!

When I saw this kit, I was SO excited!!  The colors in this kit are perfect for my 14 year old... all of her favorites!  So, I decided to create a mini album for pics of her and her friends!  I've had this album in my stash forever and this was the perfect opportunity to use it!  With the exception of the album itself, some punches and my Cricut Expression, everything you see is in this groovy kit!!


Thanks for Looking and Have A Great Day!
