On Vacation!

Oh, how I love those words. If only it still didn't mean making lunch and dinner! We're off to Red River for our annual vacation. Cooler temps, mountains, no places to be... I can't wait!

I'm taking the July kit with me although I've been working on a few layouts. Have yet to scan them in though so I'm only sharing a layout and the composition book that I covered for my middle daughter. I had wanted her to record her books that she's read this summer in it but that has yet to happen :)

I have tons of soccer pictures between games and camps - but I loved how Sadie's red-dyed hair worked with the colors in the Bella Boulevard Family Dynamix papers! The layout was loosely based on Kristine's sketch for the month... very loosely! LOL

Hope you are enjoying your summer vacation, all too soon the weather will be turning and the girls will be back in school!

Sneaky Peeky!!

The Design Team has had the July kit to play with for a while now. It is filled with so much yumminess that you are going to LOVE! Here's a sneak peek of one of my layouts I did using the July Sussies Kit.
I added the Starbucks lid for fun, but the rest of these goodies are all from the kit and add on!

A little Pop!

Today I want to share with you an easy technique that I've been using a bit lately.
A lot of times, either because of the colors I'm using or the patterns I'm using I think my title might get lost on the page. So my solution?
Do my title on some white cardstock and cut it out.
Here is an example of one of the first times I did this:I really wanted the black letters to POP, so I first put them on white cardstock and then cut them out to really contrast with the purple.

Here is another example using this month's kit.

I used the alpha rubons here, made my words "my" and "grows" and then cut them out as one piece. This can really help give that title a little extra something!
Give it a try!

Scrapbooking Vacations

 I know summer brings on the vacations, so now is a great time to be thinking about scrapbooking those memories! We took a trip up to Alaska this spring, so I used the opportunity to scrap with the June kit! I think the Bella Blvd paper with the playing cards were my favorite :)

Fun in the Sun!

So, have you received your June kit yet? Have you started playing with it? It's SO much fun! I love the Bo Bunny Ad Lib Line! It's so fun and bright and I thought it went well with these soccer pictures from camp last year! I had so many pictures I forgot to leave room for the journaling. Luckily I was able to slip it behind the photo!

Are you working on the sketch challenge? I hope to find some time to! Hope you are enjoying some lazy days!

It's Another Sketch. With a Prize!!

So have you checked out the June kit? Well, here it is!

And we've got something fun for this month. I know I say this a lot, but there is SO MUCH packed in these kits. I always have tons left over after I do my work for the the Design Team. So, I'm sharing this month! I've been trying to go through and organize and purge some of my leftovers and I've put together TWO RAKS to give away this month if you do a page using this month's sketch.
So here's the deal:
This month's sketch is by our very own Valerie Allen.
And this is what I did with it using the June kit.

Now here's the fun part. If you participate and do this sketch, you will be entered into a drawing for one of the RAKS. AND if you use Sussie supplies you're name goes in the hat twice!! Here are the 2 prize packs I've put together. Keep in mind that these are leftovers from past sussies kits. A lot of these things have never even been opened but there are a few partial packs of things or packs with some things used out of them.

The first one is a Bling and Things Prize. Lots of bling and glitter.

The second one has lots of outdoorsy stuff, some birthday stuff, and just a mixture of other things too.

So post a link to your Layout here in this post by midnight on June 30th using the sketch and you're entered. Hope you play!!
