My Creative Scrapbook - Creative Kit

It's time for the reveal at My Creative Scrapbook!!! In this post, I have featured the items I made using the Creative Kit which features My Minds Eye Penny Lane collection as well as some gorgeous chipboard by Creative Cafe. This chipboard was a dream to work with...three 12x12 sheets of florals, swirls and shapes and they are already white so it saved me the effort of painting all the chipboard that I wanted to use. Of course, I hauled out my bucket of glitter and put it to good use. This kit also has some yummy extras like BoBunny flowers and Creative Cafe stickers. Head on over and check out the amazing gallery this month!

The best gift: Larissa truly is the very gift we have ever been blessed with...I want her to always know this so I just added a little love note for her. The Thickers that came in the Creative kit were white so I just used my Zig photo pen to colour them red with a few white dots added with my Signo White Uniball pen. (ummm... I think I already scrapped this photo ... I just noticed this now...LOL)

I recently found this older photo of Larissa and her cousin Keaton (from 2 years ago) and just had to scrap it... they are so freakin cute together :D

Fly a kite: I just love this layout even though it's not really my normal style. These photos are from a kite flying family day we attended in June '07. It was a gorgeous spring day and we spent quite a few hours relaxing, flying kites and watching others fly their amazing kites. We actually won a prize for the best Canadian kite.... the funny part is that we bought it at Canadian Tire for $5...we won the prize b/c we were the only ones with a Canadian kite...LOL!! I was so proud of this little die cut kite I made. I just drew it out on pattern paper, cut it and trimmed it with white cardstock and scalloped sissors and then stitched the kite string and added some cute little bows. Of course, the entire time I was scrapping this layout, I was singing the Mary Poppin's Let's go fly a kite...up to the highest heights (I watched that movie a hundred times or more when I was a kid) :)

And here's a (very heavy) card that I made with some of the scraps. I used Staz-on ink to stamp on the petals of the flower and then used a Zig Photo Pen to colour in the red areas. .
