I was so super excited when my kit finally came, I literally stayed up all night to play! This kit is so FUN and so BRIGHT... the hardest part was finally picking which photos to use, because I had so MANY that would go with this kit! This kit is so easy to work with, BASIC GREY ROCKS! So here is my first layout:

1,2,3 come riding with me

I used a BIG photo for this one, because bike riding is my son's life right now... I think he would ride all day... and he's only 2 1/2! I cut out the 1,2,3 from the c.i. die cut sheet to add it to the title!

I (heart) my water baby

This was a LO of my son Josh when he was 4 months old "hanging out" in a water park! He loved this ... and so did I since I was hands free! You will notice in your kits a small swatch of fabric! I LOVED this! I use fabric a lot on my LO's... so I couldn't resist to add it to this one! I used my cuttlebug to cut out the big red heart in the title, as well as a little heart for the journalling spot at the bottom! I created a fun edge with the add on ribbon, and punched out circle for the top and bottom! I did some paper rolling (into the wee hours of the night...hehehe) to complete the frame around the photo!

Perfect in every way

This is a Lo of my daughter learning to climb the monkey bars at the park! In my journalling I talked about how no matter what she does, she always does things the "Jordan way"... and it is just perfect! I cut up the spinner card, to get more milage out of it, and I used the sweet, silly, and smart to describe my daughter. I also took the arrow for the spinner card and attached it to my layout to bring attention to the title!

Stay tuned later this month too, as I am going to be doing a fun MAKE & TAKE for you to try using the kit too!
