and i have the sunburn to go with it!

studio calico's may kit PLAYGROUND is every bit as fun and crazy as i remember the playgrounds of my childhood being. and being outside for a few hours today, i managed to get the first sunburn of the season to go with the feel of PLAYGROUND. kind of perfect really.

here's the rest of my sneaks, i've been posting them bit by bit, but here's the whole kit and kaboodle. i might have one more, but at this point, no.

i got double dutch as an add on because i really wanted the AC typo letters and the coffee cup stain stamp. i used that alphabet a lot! most of these layouts are a mixture of both kits. i LOVE how this kit turned out. it was a surprise for me, not the one that instantly shouted out to me, but i have loved playing with it. it's so mismatch-y that it's perfect. you're going to be very happy with it, i promise.





you've already seen this one, but i boosted the color a bit and love it so much, i had to share again. i know, i'm a geek...


i was flipping through my older layouts (that need to go into books!) and saw that i used this same title back in january, totally different layout. i love one element on this page, it cracks me up.



i think this is my favorite layout of the bunch:



and the earlier sneak that i had for this layout did not have the journaling done, i thought i was fine with how i'd cropped the picture, but no. i got caught. it's done now, so i thought i'd give you a peek at that too.

I came here looking for sneaks. But found a cool blog! After your Easter photos of your kids, I have to admit I love them. What a hoot. I can see that your home is filled with both love and humor. Doesn't get much better than that I tell ya.
