Finger Licking Good {Birds of A Feather Kit Co: February; Basic Grey: Kissing Booth}

Three posts in three days - crazy, huh?! I really am trying to be more consistent about my scrapping and truly hope to get quite a bit done this weekend.

Today's layout is created for the current challenge at The Paper Variety. They've made some changes to their challenges (more time to get them done) but this is the first one I've been able to complete so far. It's a sketch challenge: 
and here's my interpretation {click on image}:
I used pictures from over a year ago that I had printed - love pulling from my stash of photos :) I used the February kit from BOAF and added just a couple of Bo Bunny embellishments and alphas from my stash. I'm so glad that I was able to play along at TPV again!

Fun at Birds of A Feather in February

I completed this layout for a journaling challenge this month at BOAF. The pictures are a tad lighter than in real life...but be sure to click on them for better viewing!
I misted this flower...or rather poured the mist all over it because my mister was clogged. Grrr. Then I curled the petals and popped the middle up for some dimension. Inspired by a layout/tutorial Janet posted last month using this kit.
My journaling:
Speaking of Birds of A Feather....they are having a crop this weekend! I hope you'll come join me - I always get lots of layouts done with the crops there and if you are lucky to win a prize, Amy is always giving away great stuff! :)

January 2012 Project 12 {Simple Stories: Year.o.graphy}

I'm sure that none of you are keeping up, but I am behind 2 months on my project 12 albums. Well, only one month now...because I skipped December! I will be getting to it soon, very soon :)

{don't forget to click on each picture for a better view!}
I decided to go with January first to try my new kit from Simple Stories line Year.O.Graphy. Since S&CT changed how they are running Project 12, I'm just going to do my own thing, still documenting one month on a two page spread. Even before the changes were announced, I decided to go with this Simple Stories line to give the year of pages a cohesive feel. I did still use a sketch from one of the past two years of the project by S&CT. 
 We didn't take too many pictures in January. Most are from our Valentine's sessions and then there's a sleeping baby picture. The picture in the upper right is hard to figure out - but it's my two girls with their friend playing outside in a tent that they created using umbrellas. They had so much fun that afternoon :) And of course I'm just now realizing I didn't include that in my journaling at all...I'll go add  a little blurb next to the picture before I put the layout away.
I have two more layouts to share with you so check back soon!
