Layouts: Camper Butterfly Heart Blush

I’m so excited! The amazing Jessica Bolton has popped back into designing, guesting at Scrapbookgraphics this month to help them celebrate their big 7th birthday!! Along with three old favorite kits, she’s got a brand new one – “The Long Haul”.  It has some absolutely adorable camping themed elements, but is also loaded with wonderful any occasion goodness in that unique Jess style that I miss so much.

I had so much fun using the new kit to scrap some fun pics of Kaylee from this spring, adapting a P365 post and adding a couple of extra pics. :)

Journaling: Kaylee LOVES the school’s theme weeks with dress-up days – the more elaborate or “out there”, the better. This time, as part of a reading themed week in conjunction with their book fair, it was “Camping Out” … “hike into a good book”. Her outfit was thrown together in the morning right before school… one of my old flannel shirts (with the sleeves rolled up about eight times), my bandana tied in her hair, and Matthew’s canteen slung across her shoulder. This pose she struck while we were out waiting for the bus cracks me up. I’d say she’d make a good model, but she doesn’t take direction well. In fact, if I suggest anything, she usually does the opposite just to be stubborn. 3/10/10

I’ve also got a layout with Misty’s newest kit, “Summer Flies”.  Such a fab color combination in this, and the doodled elements and flowers rock!

Journaling: Mark did a few magic shows at the Kiwanis Butterfly Festival at a local mall. Directly across from where he was performing, there was a face painter. Kaylee thought that was the coolest thing ever, and just had to have hers done. She chose a colorful butterfly design, which she happily showed off for the rest of the weekend. She was disappointed when I insisted we scrub off what was left of it before she went back to school. 5.15.10

And two with Michelle Coleman scrumptiousness. This first one actually uses a gorgeous (and huge) wedding themed kit. So much more in it than the little bit I’ve used here. If I did hybrid at all, I’d totally be whipping up some amazing cards with it!

Some favorite snaps of Mark and the kids. :) Photos 1/18/10 - scrapped 8/10/10.

And, finally, one with Michelle’s luscious “Bohemian Summer" Kit and {Sample Pack}.  Just amazing color and texture.

Journaling: You’ve always been very sensitive to the heat. At this time of year it doesn’t take much time outside for your cheeks to turn bright pink. 7/12/10

That’s it for today! Off to do some pre guest magician cleaning and back-to-school paperwork! Only one more week of summer break left! Where did summer go?!
