It's time for the July kit...Elmwood Park is live at Studio Calico. ;)
What I bought:
What I made:
This first layout is very special to me. Right now SC is celebrating their 5 year anniversary. And some of the members came up with challenges for the anniversary. You can see them right here.
The challenge I chose was to lift a layout you made 5 years ago.
I looked back through my very first album and found this:
I remember vividly when Harper was one. We lived in Ft. Benning and I was really getting into scrapbooking.
I made this page to tell her my hopes and dreams for her future. Looking at this page now makes me cry. She was so little. And all of the things I hoped for her then...I hope for all FOUR!!! of my girls now.
I knew this was the layout I had to lift.
I came up with this layout using
New Digital Printables(the camera date card and "remember" flag)
These photos are so special to me. I have never had photos with each girl and myself. I knew right away I wanted to use them for this layout.
I love this page and I am so grateful for this challenge. Thank you Em!
You want to know something funny? The actual challenge was to "find a layout from 5 years ago and scraplift it with your current style". Um, I think I have the same style and I'm okay with that. Ha!!
I had to do a page about throwing a party with Kerryellen. I knew right away that I wanted the cabochon flowers and buttons to mimic the paper fans in the photo. Love a bright,happy page.
I ended up purchasing Capture the Flag because I thought it would be great for photos of Jimmy. The (sad) problem is...I realized I don't have any photos of him that haven't been scrapped.
I love this picture of Sadie in my sunglasses and ended up using this kit for a layout of her. I think that little BasicGrey tag hanging from the bow is hilarious ('you are soooooo good lookin') and you know i LOVE LOVE the ribbon in this add-on.
Hope you have a beautiful and blessed Thursday. Y'all it is almost JULY. I cannot even put into words how happy that makes me!!
