July Gossamer Blue projects!

oooooh to say this Gossamer Blue kit was a good one would be an understatement! As soon as I got this kit I dove in and created EIGHT layouts... yeah I said EIGHT! lol.... I could have scrapped so many more layouts with all the fun summer photos I have of the kids, but ran out of time! The awesome thing is... I STILL have tons of kit leftover... I am still shock even after almost a year on the team of how much Lori packs in these kits for us!
So I'm not going to overwhelm you and show them all at one but spread them out a bit! lol
 
Up first was a layout that came together super fast using lots of premade embellishments and die cuts... gotta love that! I love this picture of my twins friends from a pool party they had a friends house on the last day of 5th grade... yes sniff sniff... they are going to be in middle school next year... seriously WHERE does the time go!

and a few close ups...
 




Next up are some fun pictures of my oldest daughter Madison...oh what a beauty she is! I wanted to make a fun carefree layout... which totally describes her personality to a T!
 and some close ups
See those little heart geo puffy geo tag stickers by Skipping5.. I fell in total love with them with this kit! I tried to stick them anywhere I could on my layouts.. FUN stuff and neat company! :)

 
 and last as I was searching through old photos I came across these pictures of my middle son Mitchell and I swear my heart melted a little... he is so damn cute! lol There was some fish patterned paper in the 6x6 pad in the Bits & Pieces kit I was giddy with and wanted to use... and so this layout was born!
 
 and the close up:
I had never really messed with cork or the chalkboard stuff much but after this kit... I find myself reaching for it all the time! That Chalkboard tape... oh my... that stuff was awesome! See the little fish I drew across it in the photo above? the possibilities with that stuff is unlimited!
 
In life news...
We've been busy beavers around these parts lately. I've had the oldest leave and return from team camp (varsity basketball team camp), the twins leave and return from church camp (first overnight camp for them both) and they did awesome! Madison and Mitch went on their Mission trip week before last and Madison just completed cheer camp this week!
Fun news to share... Mitchell ran in the Glow Run here in town with several hundred people and took THIRD place overall... I was shocked when I saw him rounding the corner not far behind 2nd place but far in front of the 4th place runner.. my little Mitch whooping tons of butt in one of the younger age groups!
Craptastic photo but here he is getting his medal for winning his age division! so proud!
another goodie! Madison was away at cheer camp this week and took home the honor of making All American! This is something at camp that they have to try out for and make to be named... there were over 400 girls at camp! Go Madison! (her on the right... with her bf Stephanie!)

 
Thanks for stopping by! Stop by again and I plan to share a few more of the layouts I did with the amazing July Gossamer Blue kit!
