July Main Kit - My Creative Scrapbook!
It's the 5th of the month so that means reveal day at My Creative Scrapbook!!! This months main kit features My Little Bicycle's Traveler line. It was a wonderful kit to work with..blues and greens. This kit is already sold out so if you want to join in the fun in months to come you'll have to get on board and sign up!
So I was working away with the kit and looked down at the sheet of paper I was cutting and noticed the wording MacDonald Bridge. It caught my eye because of the MacDonald bridge in Halifax and sure enough the whole pattern of this particular paper is old printed tickets for the MacDonald Bridge in Halifax, Nova Scotia! I thought that was really cool since it's not far from where I live and somewhere I've often driven.

Little Dancer: I cut the transparency in this kit into a Jenni Bowlin shape and doodled around the edges to get this effect. This is little Larissa out dancing on our doorstep...a common occurrence around these parts.
Rear View: This was my rear view for a drive to Ontario (over 17 hours each way if anyone is counting). Larissa watched Finding Nemo the whole way there and back (and that is about 24 times if anyone is counting). My sister Sarah was there on the way home and the two of them dozed and listened to an MP3 player and of course, watch Nemo.
The Thickers included in this package are 'naked' so you can colour them anyway you want to. I coloured my with a blue marker and then used Ranger Glossy Accents on the top to give them a shiny gloss.
Road Trip: And this is my Little Larissa last year working on her bicycling skills. The die cut paper for this was in the shape of a road sign. I cut the top off and tucked behind the main portion of the die cut.
And this I miss you card will shortly be on it's way to Texas for one of my favourite blog readers. Watch your mailbox Mrs. F ;)
