Well, hello again...

I'm back today with more projects from Paper Niche's June kit. I have to say, back when it was CHA time, one of the collections that I was most excited about was the collaboration between Pink Paisley/House of 3 called “Daily Junque”!!! Seeing all of those amazing papers, stamps, and embellishments - and the projects being made me wild with excitement to play with them.

How absolutely happy was I to see a bunch of Daily Junque goodies in the June kit... um, a lot! The colors - oh, the colors. Amazing! And the patterned paper is begging - BEGGING I tell you for layering! I has lot of fun with this! I made a mini book for my grandma {will share that another day} that took up quite a bit of product, so I was basically working with scraps for the layouts I wanted to create. Here is the 1st one:

As you can see, these pictures were taken with my cell phone and a lot of them are crazy blurry, but I HAD to scrap them. This was such a fun night with my kiddos. They were so darn silly, and actually getting along - which is SUCH a plus. Here are some closer-ups of the individual pages:

This layout is trying SO darn hard to be my favorite from this kit!

My sweet utterly adorable Alivia Grace. I took it right after I made her first full ponytail. She was so happy {not about the brushing - she hated THAT part - but about having a pony like mommy}.

For this LO I was in total scrap-mode. Running out of supplies and totally using that to my advantage ;). I love LOVE that tissue flower! I really wanted to messily stitch the tissue on as a background. My mom had borrowed my sewing machine the previous weekend to use for a project with the girl scouts and it was already threaded with navy blue thread - which was perfect!

Anyway, that’s what I have for ya today. Thanks for looking. I hope you have a great Tuesday!
