the reason i ordered all four add ons? let me 'splain:
1. rope swing had the jillibean soup burlap alphas and the artisan pins from girls' paperie.
2. pink lemonade had the sticky keys alpha from october afternoon .
3. paper lanterns had the maggie alphabet from girls' paperie and corrugated houses from jillibean soup.
4. clear skies sported some lovely echo park, the corrugated frames and buttons from jillibean soup, and the crate buttons.
notice a trend? i mainly got the add ons because of the alphas. i love a good one you know. anyway, all the kits were amazing, but the main was especially so. i had a lot of fun playing with it. we got to do member lifts this month and i lifted this layout by julie fei-fan balzer or milkcan as she's known around the scrappy world.
i loved her painted tags, and when i saw the GP paper in the main, i knew i wanted to do a little painting myself. this is the result, a layout about my sweet daughter and her boyfriend. she absolutely adores him:
i made this next one for the sneaks a few weeks ago. i loved the newsprint stamp that came in rope swing, and with a little versamark and zing, i easily created a background that is fun and unique.
