Last of the July GB projects!

"Cards with Kim" went live over on the Gossamer Blue blog... head over there to check out the instructions for these two quick and easy cards using the July Gossamer Blue kit! :)


and last up in my July GB projects was my layout for the Fancy Pants feature... this layout is featuring all new FP product.... this stuff was SO much fun and I love how this layout just scrapped itself... gotta enjoy when that happens! lol
love this sweet picture... another shot from Madison and Luis prom photoshoot :)
oooooh the cork here... love love love the cork accents in this kit!

 
Also super fun news over on the GB blog... LOTS of new gals to work with! So happy to have such talent on the team and still pinch myself Lori asked me to join in the beginning!

Well this is coming up on our last week of freedom before the school chaos starts... part of me is ready for it all and part of me just doesn't want to have to deal with it....
I DID finish up Morgans senior ad for the football program for this year... yes I said SENIOR ad... I'm gonna need major tissue this year I'm sure there will be lots of tears to shed!
 
thanks for stopping by! :)

More GB July goodness!


Heres' some more of my July Gossamer Blue goodness! I had so much fun with this kit!
First layout is just a fun one of my youngest sons last day of school pool party at a friends house... these boys are such a tight knit group they are gonna be fun to watch grow into middle school and beyond!
I fell SO in love with the cork accents in this kit... seriously I want to use them on everything! How cute are they? yum!!
 
 
and a few close ups...

 
and another layout from the pool party... Matthew is so fun about letting me get fun shots of him! love this kid!



This layout just makes me smile... these were a few of the prom photos from Luis and Madi's prom shoot... there are some really sweet ones but these seem to capture them better for sure! Just being silly with each other. The chalkboard tape on here was super fun and neat to add my journaling too at the end!


Oooooh and this little beauty! I took these pictures as soon as we got home from her last day of school... how damn cute is she? It's so hard to believe her and Matt are going to be in middle school next year.. just not possible! sniff sniff! I LOVED that this kit had so many options... this is a soft and pretty girlie layout and the layout about is more dark and has an older feel to it... Great job Lori again on a fabulous well rounded kit!


 
 Well that about sums up this pretty kit... I still have another layout and a set of cards to share... I'll put those up in a few days! :)
 
We are gearing up for the whirlwind of school starting soon around here... last week of freedom is next week then we start 2 a day football and band and then school starts!
This year is gonna start a few years of me just being a blubbering idiot... Morgan will be a senior this year and Madison a junior and Mitchell a sophomore... so one after the other I will lose them in the house... gracious I'm just not ready! :(
It's time to start deciding on colleges and filling out paperwork and all that....it's go time!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

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!
