Fun with KnK's Septmeber Kit


I was so excited to get the September Kit from KnK. First off I love Kraft papers! and the thoughts of black and kraft papers with splashes of colors was just so exciting. I used this image which I have to admit I did not recolor myself. My daughter Meagan's friend Liz redid it! I just loved the effects. They all wore Tie-Dye shirts for Sadie last year-the boys choosing 1 color and the girls choosing the other! Anyway I just love how this was re-colored and have been waiting for the "right" papers to highlight it. I thought these papers were it! I added splashes of color in the flowers made from the Crafty Chronicles that is included in the kit. I also glimmer misted the Petaloo Color Me Petals for the leaves. The colored letters are plain old white sticker letters that I colored with my Copics. Hope you have lots of fun scrapping this week. Don't forget Amy's Challenge here on the blog and for message board members there are a few challenges posted by Jules on the board

Drum Camp Fun


I really loved the Kraft papers and that you could use as is or color them yourself. When I saw the main picture on this layout I loved the technicolor drum. The colors and the patterns just looked so fun! So I tried to mimic them for my layout. I cut the papers in strips and then spread them out and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist. I could have easily used Smooch Spray except I only have 2 colors ( a problem I intend to remedy soon ;) ) . Once the papers had dry I adhered them down onto my layout. I loved how it turned out. Simple yet effective!

To my faithful readers


If there is anyone still out thanks for hanging around! been a long long month since I posted. Softball Season finally ended. All 3 kids had ball seasons that didn't seem to want to end. Meagan and Alex's teams kept winning in the tournaments. Meagan's team finishing 1st in Community Tournament and Alex's finishing 4th I think. Sarah's season was just a nightmare. Not going into details but lets just say parents should let the girls play and not create problems from the bleachers!

Meagan is now in her Sophomore year of high school and all the activities that come with that. While Sarah has started her 8th grade year and Alex his 2nd grade year.

The homecoming dress is bought! and is adorable!

Soccer season has started!!

Sarah attended softball tryouts for a different travel team and got the call yesterday! SHE MADE IT!!!!! looking forward to a better year! ( so yes softball season ended and began again all in one month)

lastly we have had 2 ER visits in last 2 weeks- one for me and one for Meagan! Praying that is not a trend that continues!!!!!!!!! See you tomorrow!!!
