Kimberly just dropped off my kit and once again it is FABULOUS. I can't wait to start designing. It has wonderful aquas and teals with red, blues, yellows and gray. It has lot of letters and die cuts, a cute little note stamp and some little fabric cameras perfect for spritzing. Here is a peek.

Happy Father's Day to the best "Pa" a girl could ever have.
Things my Pa taught me.....
Things my Pa taught me.....
- My love of football, most importantly how to throw a perfect spiral. (Something that my sister never figured out, she still throws like a girl!)
- How to change a tire (No daughter of his should be without simple auto mechanic techniques. (Don't think Bec figured that out either!) I could also tune the points in a Honda Accord but I don't think that cars nowadays have those.)
- That taking a short nap during the Evening News is a must. (not that I ever get that one accomplished)
- That cooked carrots are HORRIBLE.
- That camping was actually a really fun time. Even though as teenage girls, we thought it was the worst thing EVER!
- How to gut a fish. Which came in handy when filleting and freezing over 500 lbs of halibut that one summer in Ketchikan.
- How to woodwork. (Most of the electric tools in our garage are MINE!)
- That family is the most important thing.

SKETCH - LAYOUT
This months sketch was by October Afternoon. I really liked this sketch. It is always fun to work off of sketches, it takes a lot of thinking out of making a layout. I decided that instead of using three little pictures to use one large pic. Since I had two similar sized pics of each kiddo (4x7 1/2), I made a layout for both. Each month, the kits that Kimberly puts together have such a range of colors and textures. With this one kit, I was able to make a masculine and feminine layout that are the same but completely different. I love that the kits are so versatile.
BEAUTY BLOOMS FROM WITHIN
This is the femine version. I used the flower die cuts and the floral patterned papers. I splatted some Mister Huey mist and backed the banners in white card stock.
GROWING UP TOO FAST
This is the masculine version. I used the chevron and bright colored patterned papers. I backed the banners with the charcoal paper. I was fortunate that the die cut stickers from Dear Lizzy had a whole bunch of 7's, they fit perfectly for this layout as my son is 7 right now.
SKETCH - CARD
My card isn't exactly like the sketch, (not even close), but a sketch is there for inspiration and sometimes the inspiration and the finished projects aren't the same. When I had first envisioned it, the hexagons would overlap each other some popped up and some not, however when I was done, it was very linear. I think it turned out really cute. Don't be afraid to use a sketch, you may never know which direction it will go.
