May Commit2Paper

I got such a yummy kit in the mail on Saturday... the May Commit2Paper kit! Oh wow!! So gorgeous. Lovely pink, purples, teals. Yummy chipboard buttons and letter. Awesome vinyl thickers! And delicious rubons! But nobody posted that they wanted to see... well, except Amy. Maybe I'll just email them to her and let the rest of you wonder what you have in store when you get your kit in a couple weeks....

But back to the kit... I loved it so much, and it was so perfect for my gorgeous little girls! I did 4 - YES FOUR!!! Layouts with it... just yesterday! And I have another one in the making! Oh, and I'm thinking I might do a little mini tag book too. Its absolutely wonderful!!

**SIGH** I'm so unapreciated! I guess if there is nobody to tease I'll just post my layouts. LOL!

More April C2P stuff

Some more stuff done with the yummy C2P April kit and textured Daisy Bucket papers!!! Did I mention how much I love these papers! Here is a cute little card. The 'paper ribbon' that came in the kit was able to be curled, and I so wanted to curl it!!! But I knew it wouldn't work on a LO, so here you go!! Isn't it neat! I tied some strands around the middle of the ribbon, split them down the middle and curled with my scissors. Scrap piece for the scalloped square and a Studio G sentiment.Absolutely Fabulous!!! Yep that's me!! LOL! Used all kit stuff except HS journal spot and stamps. Grunged up edges are a stamp from ScrapBook Takeout, and absolutely is part of a SU stamp. Used the velvet scallop box, cut in half, punched out the circles and added them to the top of the PP along the edge. The bigger circles were cut using a circle punch and I punched in between the flowers, etc on the velvet sheet, using the scraps. Journaling reads, Well, at least your kids and hubby think so. And I guess you do have your moments! :wink:

Thanks for looking... and I can't wait until next month! Rumor has it its gonna be GIRLY!!! YAY!!

Here is a LO I did with the C2P April kit. You can see more layouts on Joyce and Amy's blog. The papers have SUCH a yummy texture... seriously, they're great. And one of my all time favorite colors is the lime-ish green that is featured in these papers! Paired with blue, it really makes it pop!! Thanks for looking!
