Real Boys Play with Trucks

It's true you know!  My boys love their trucks, and the bigger the better.  Monster Truck Big!  Here is a layout made with BoBunny's "On the Go" Line, perfect for my boys!

Nothing too technical about this page!  I used the 12 x 12 chipboard shapes, the brads and the paper, all from the one line. I also matched up some of the Double Dot Cardstock.  Some fussy cutting from the cut-outs paper, and the banner trend is still big right now so I layered some 1" strips, folded them and made the banner below the title.  Love the colours, so bright and happy!

My Sunshine

Good morning everyone!  Looks like we have another heat wave heading our way here in Southwestern Ontario!  I will enjoy today's temperatures while it lasts - hot but not as much humidity!

I have another layout to share today - created with Scrappin' Great Deals July Scrapbooking Kit.  Sadly, it is also the last of the monthly kit program.  Happily we are still creating kits - just in a new direction.  We are making DIVA kits.  Layouts, cards, altered items;  kits with full instructions to create one layout, or a group of cards or even an album.  I will post more details as we get them underway!!

Right now here is:  "MY SUNSHINE"

I had fun playing with a new Ranger stamp set, Dylusions - that is the flowers along the left side, stamped in Tattered Rose Distress ink, hilighted with my Distress Markers.  I used an EK Success border punch on the Authentique patterned paper, and then used a Prima flourish mask to add some dimension to the paper.  The rest of the embellishments are in the kit - the wood butterflies by Maya Road, a lovely little folder by Simple Stories, ZVA roses, pearls, ribbon, twine.  Loving the orange & pink colour combo!

Have a fabulous day!!
