Sneak Peeks...

I have a few fun sneak peeks for you!  I'm in love with the February Citrus Tree Studio kit that I'm working with because it's right up my alley, especially for boy layouts.  The kit features KaiserCraft's Hunt & Gather line and is perfect for all of Gabe's fishing pictures from 2011. 

Don't ya just love these peeks?

The full reveal will happen on February 5th so hop on over to Citrus Tree Studio to check out both kits!

Kit projects

I feel like such a slacker for not posting since Halloween...really, have I been that busy?  The answer is yes.  Although I really enjoyed spending time with family over the holidays, I just don't feel like I took much time to slow down and enjoy the everyday moments.  Oh well, maybe next year. LOL

Thank goodness for Citrus Tree Studio and Cindy's ability to inpsire me with her kits.  I created some fun projects in December with the "Blue Hills Meadow" kit and now in January with the "Forever Mine, Valentine" kit.  You can find both of these kits here.

First, I'll show you my December projects as I really enjoyed the layouts I created with the kit. Early in December we took a family trip to cut Christmas trees.  We spent the day hiking around the woods and roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over an open fire.  It's fun to see what everyones definition of the perfect smore is! Such a special day with my parents, both older boys, and my brother's family.

This next project is actually a picture of Gabe taken over the 4th of July weekend.  The paper, even though winter paper, is perfect for this photo in my opinion.  I just love it.

Another layout using photos from last years snow fall.  This year has been so dry that I had to scrounge up snow photos..he-he.

Finally, a few cards using this beautiful kit:

So are you ready to see the bright and fun Citrus Tree Studio January kit?  Holy moly, you know how I feel about the color pink...well this kit is packed full of it and I had a blast!  The "Forever Mine, Valentine" kit features My Mind's Eye "Love Me" patterned papers and a ton of fun embellishments including a paper mache puffy heart! 

Here are my projects using this kit so far and thank goodness for our cutie patooties, Ruby and Henry, because they are such great subjects to photgraph!

So here is the puffy heart I was talking about.  I decopauged the patterned paper over it, added some paint, stamps, rub-on's and turned out sooooo cute!

My final project is the product spotlight photo display for sale at CTS.  It has so much possibilities and each of the designers has altered it with their own unique talents.  I painted mine with white paint and then stamped and stenciled over the top of it before sealing it with Diamond Glaze.  Turned out fun.

Happy New Year to you all.  I don't make resolutions (because I always break them) but I will try to update my blog more often.  Thanks for stopping by!
