Paper Posies July Kit

Hello everyone!! Hope your summer is going well, birthday season has started for us and it's been crazy!! Our weekends in July has been packed, 4th of July party, Kuya and Tina's beach party, next week is Jasmin's party, the week after is Isaac's party! I LOVE it!! I love the celebrations, the get togethers, hanging with family and friends. And I love all the photo ops! heehee!

I've also been scrapping quite a bit this summer. I was honored to be asked to guest design for Paper Posies. My friend Sonda is on the team. I've known her for years via the internet. Although she lives in Sacramento, we still have yet to meet in person. Right now her family is in need of your prayers and every thought is greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

Here are the layouts I created with the kit. The kit is packed and filled with fun goodies! I did add the buttons and the bling, but everything else was included.

First up is our Easter 09 photo. It seems every year Heintje is working. This year he was actually OFF and we decided to celebrate with a big family get together! The Mags were here and even Dad's cousin from Suisun!! We even had an egg hunt for the kiddies--Joey, Jordan, and Martin. Jasmin was too shy, so she had her own in the bedroom..LOL.

Next we have our RED HOT baby! This was taken last year, Nov 08. I just got my new camera and was testing it out. He is still a cutie, even with that face! Man, he is going to get me for this later...good blackmail when he is older! Gosh, I'm so mean..LOL.

Back in the day Heintje and I used to have breakfast or lunch dates with Jordan. Then he started school, then Jasmin came along...and well, life happens. Now that Jasmin has started school, Heintje has been having breakfast dates with Joey quite often. One morning we all left a bit early so I can join in on the fun. It's so different going out with just 1 kid. It was so easy!

And finally, here is a layout for Jasmin. This was taken last July when she was still very apprehensive with her training wheels. She still uses them, but now she zooms on by with it!! I'm so proud of her. With Jasmin it's all about baby steps. We don't like to push her, just encourage her. For her, she likes to take her time and sooner than later, she'll achieve her goals!
I had such a great time creating this layout. The vintage Sassafrass paper was perfect for it! I used a technique called fussy cut. I cut out certain images on the patterned paper and used it for my designs. I further embellished them by crumpling them up, inking the edges, and adding stickles....and pop dots!! I've included a bunch of detail images.

That's all for now. I'll show you the cards I created next time. Thanks for stopping by!
