The Queen Has Spoken... Jenny's August Kit Reveal

When the big brown truck pulled up to my house and the nice driver slipped that gear into park, I went runnin for the door. I just knew what to expect... my August Queen Bee kit and a big old pile of goodies from the SO store, as well. I love this kit. I love that it is just soo pretty and unexpected. It's not at all a typical color palette. The yellow and grey are just gorgeous and that punch of teal just puts it over the top. I made 2 pages and a card with my goodies. There is still a TON of kit left. The first page includes a photo of my younger daughter playing dress up. I used a piece of diecut Bazzill (from the store)and a MME paper as the base. I fussy cut one of the PP papers. Gotta love those flowers. When I glued them down I only did here and there. I like the movement the unattached edges provide. Beneath the photo I layered a diecut and one of those darling clears.

Next to the photo I layered a diecut with a punched scallop circle (on a popdot), a cork piece (flipped over), and a button with some bakers twine. Love all the dimension here. You can also see here that I distressed the black alpha so that it remains visible on the black cardstock. I think the distressing really works well with these papers.

Here where that unexpected comment comes in. I used photos of my DS on the football field for this next one. Lots of cutting and layering with a bit of stitching thrown in here. Isn't he a little hunk?!?

Next up, a sweet little card to welcome my hubby home from Afganistan TODAY!! Off to watch my hubby fly in on his E-2C Hawkeye and see my children run out on the flightline into his arms. Sure hope this waterproof mascara holds up!
