Susan's June Reveal

Happy Tuesday and ALMOST summer vacation to you! We have just four more days to go here and this teacher can't wait!!! How about some more exciting news? The June Kit from Simply obsessed is just great! I was wondering just how these colors would work for me, but they came together so easily. Here is what I came up with.
And He Says "The Girls Like Me"

This is my first ever 8 1/2 x 11 layout and I really enjoyed working with this size. I see more of these in my future. The photo is of my oldest son Sean at the "Very Special Prom" at his high school. This prom is held for students and past students of the special education classes here. He looked forward to it for a long time and while getting ready he informed me "The Girls Like Me!" Oh boy, what do we have in store for us? The Kraft colored letters are just the Cosmo ones that came in the kit. I just peeled the top layer off because I thought this color better suited my layout. The tiny brown alphas are from my stash. This extra long title required lots of alphas!

"2 of a Kind"

I used a sketch from Magpie to complete this one. This is my husband and daughter hanging out. They are very much two of a kind! I cut the blue circles out and used them to create a scalloped border.

"Sometimes I Wonder"

This layout features a photo of my father when he was six. i just love working with old photos. I love the color combo going on here. Notice the flower at the top. I just cut a circle from the orange cardstock and cut out the blue diamonds on another paper and used them as the petals. I hand cut the star and journal tag also. i know this will be one of those layouts I treasure.

"World's Best Dad" Card

Finally. a simple card for Father's Day.

This is a great kit and I loved working with it. Make sure you snap yours up. Have a wonderful day, Susan
