July Already

I feel like June was such a blur...crazy that it is July. A new month brings a new kit from The Nook! The current design team term is up in just a few days. Time sure does fly when you are having fun. The new team will be announced by July 10th and the suspense is killing me! Always an exciting time as Leah picks such great teams to show off the kits! Speaking of, here are some layouts using the gorgeous July kit. It features BasicGrey's Lemonade, some Prima, Maya Road, a beautiful stamp and beautiful trim! I am really loving Lemonade--such pretty patterns.

This first one is called Long Distance Love Affair. I caught these photos of my daughter with my mom at a recent party. Neither of them knew I was shooting. So what you see is real emotion. I used the new BG doilies on here--these are soo much fun! And I used the large chipboard circle to make a journaling block! The other circle is actually a piece from the negative space. I keep everything when I am scrapping! Journaling reads: Even though Ella doesn't get to see you often, she just adores you. When you call, she lights up. We know she loves to tell Nonnie stories. The bond is strong and the love is pure. Near or far...

The second one is called Two Cute. I think I bought every add-on this month and I highly recommend you check them out. Lots of layering here and I handcut the beehive like paper to make the scallop. Do you see my dog smiling? Cracks us up...

I am off to a family picnic tomorrow and plan to take lots of pictures. I am doing well on my quest to scrap every family member! Can't wait for a burger and some strawberry shortcake.

Monday brings the big Cosmo Cricket decision. I would be lying if I told you that I didn't want this, because I do. I have also seen the amazing work all around the web. It sure has been fun looking and can't imagine having to make those final decisions! No matter what, I heart Cosmo!

Happy 4th of July weekend! Big thanks to all those serving and who have served our country!
