I am trying to get all of 2009 scrapped to date...and love it when the designers I CT for come out with kits that go hand in hand with current pictures...lol
As some of you know we have made the decision to homeschool our 4 kids...I have been busy getting that together and am now an assistant organizer for our homeschool group! (I can't do sidelines, have to BE IN THE GAME)!
Charlie came out with this kit called "To Sir with Love" one of my fav movies and am currently reading the book. (pondering it for next year with the kids):
Charlie's kit is available at ESS.
I did this layout, and am pretty excited to add this to our 2009 album:
Lyndsay has kept me busy over at Scrap Orchards, she did a collab with Amy Stoffel (whom I have my fingers crossed for a guest appearance) and I loved the vibrancy: Here is my layout with her kit; Garden Magic
Another one from Lyndsay Riches, from a contest she did a while back, but is now selling the kit; Earth Day. I wasn't into the contest so hadn't downloaded anyone but my Charlie's kits. lol, but this is a fun one! I had to do G-man's hoodie, which he finally decided to throw away...big thank yous to my mom (you awesome grandma) who gave him a hoodie that gave him the strength to part with his ol' nasty one! This was one done last month, but holding for a while! Being a part of Doris Castle's team, means getting to do a guest designer for the Flourish newsletter as part of MSA! This month was Kristenl Hartley, and her kit Colors Me Happy. The pics in the layout are of Anna coming down the slip and slide...I layed at the other end and laughed just as hard as the kids came down the plastic!I spent most of yesterday back and forth on the computer working on the following layout. I had the pics, then played with layers, textures, and opacity. The journalling was hard a Ind I'm still pondering it in my head. I loved Lorilei Murphy's kit: Crossings from her Studio; Rosey Posey Studio. It had so much, I wanted to put all of it on the page, once I settled to just use the few pieces, it went together a bit easier;
I hope all enjoyed their holiday in America and your weekend for the other countries! I am off to get my other blog up to date!
