Color Me Miki--June kit--Surf City!

OMG, I totally LOVED this kit. I love the bright colors and the fun goodies Terri included in the kit. This is one of 2 kits she is offering for June at Color Me Miki.

Here is the first layout I created with the kit. I cut out the center of the bracket PP and mounted the "frame" onto the yellow cardstock. I also cut out the waves from the Fancy Pants patterned paper. I used Stickles on lots of things to mimic the glistening effects of the water! These were taken a couple weekends ago. It was our first swim of the season! That weekend was over 90degrees, perfect for taking a dip!

And some close ups. You can see the Stickles better in these photos.

Next is a simple card made with one of the journaling sheets in the kit. Totally simple, just fold it, add a piece of ribbon and embellish. I went with the Stickles again..LOL!

Next up are a couple of crazy kids! I know this is what to expect as the boys get older...more daring, more dangerous. But man, didn't think it would happen so soon....time is just zooming! And I'm sure this is pretty tamed, I don't want to know what they'll be into in a few years! This is Jordan and his best friend Christopher. They have been buddies since Kindergarten. They are more like brothers now, and his family is just like our family!!

And for a change of pace, here is our girlie girl! Used a few pieces from the April kit..the die cut shape and all those flowers along the bottom.

Finally our sweet baby! Man, I love this kid! He is just the sweetest (to me anyway..LOL). I love his zest for life. He enjoys everything, man!! Another simple layout. Strip of PP here, a journaling sheet there. Cut out circles, crumple and adhere with the brad. Outline the circles in Stickles and DONE! Used a couple of add-ons like the My Little Shoebox green mini alphas and the Scrap FX bird. I painted it, then applies Crackle paint on top.

And here is the sketch to go along with the "Pop, Pop, Pop" layout! Hope you can use this. It's a different size compared to my usual 12x12, but you can totally alter it to fit your needs :)

Hope you are enjoying this first day of June! Only 7 more days of school, baby!! Can't wait to sleep in, even if it's for an extra hour!
