Color Me Miki--July kit...Cherry Pie

Hello everyone!! I can't believe there is only 1 week left in July! I say this everytime, but man oh man! TIME FLIES!! The kids start school in 1 month and we still have lots to do in the house. We haven't even gone anywhere this summer...hmm...need to find a time share! LOL.

While we are still in July, I wanted to share with you the Color Me Miki July kit--Oh My, Cherry Pie! It's a wonderful mix of Webster's Pages and Jenni Bowlin. And gotta love the 2 alpha sets and STICKLES!! This kit is loaded with fun stuff and perfect for summer!


When I saw the colors, I was inspired to use this photo I had of the kids from last year. Totally being crazy and silly! It's funny to see even Joey joining in on the fun at 1year old! LOL. Heintje has been telling me that there are no canvases with Joey, so I decided to finally make one! This is a 14"x14" canvas, so it's a little bigger than a 12x12 layout. I had to cut up pieces of the patterned paper and piece them together. I also hid the seams with some cut outs. FUN stuff!! So now I finally have 2 pictures of Joey on our walls..LOL. Hopefully I'll get more done soon!

Although I said this kit is perfect for summer, spring works, too! I am starting to have a fondness for yellow and when I saw this paper in the kit, I knew I had to use it as a background! When I took this photo back in March, I don't remember if I meant to just take half their bodies, or I messed up?? But when I saw it later, I LOVED it!! The shorts, the bubbles, the sunshine...this photo just screamed ..IT'S ALMOST SPRING!! (this was back in March). I love sunny days and I'm so thankful I live in CA where we got lots of it!


Finally here is a card sketch with an example.



Other than a birthday party tonight, we have ZERO plans for the weekend!! We do have a have a house full of viruses so we are cleaning up. Then just we finally get to relax and stay home! Jasmin is getting over an ear infection and bronchiolitis. Heintje is getting over the flu, but still has a lingering cough. Hopefully after this weekend of rest, we'll all be 100% again!
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend! I know I'll be getting my scrap ON!! Woohoo!!!
