My Creative Scrapbook - Limited Edition

I had so much fun playing with My Creative Scrapbook's this month! It was just loaded with Pink Pailsee Bayberry Cottage goodies, Prima flowers and beautiful ribbon and lace. I made a lot of projects with this kit and still have quite a bit of it left!

More altered jars... these little jars where made from old ice tea jars and now reside in my kitchen. Did you know that to colour the lids black I was using a Sharpie pen. How ridiculous is that!?!! I was at Walmart on the weekend and finally picked up some quick drying black spray paint so it should make my job go a lot quicker next time I make altered jars!

She... makes my heart smile: I just love this photo of Larissa in a little roller coaster at a local amusement park (Shining Waters) last summer. She spent the better part of the morning riding this tiny roller coaster by herself...over and over and over again. It was also the scene of the crime when it was time to leave and she took a massive roll-on-the-ground-screaming temper tantrum. Boy was that embarrassing!

FLY: I snapped this photo of Larissa last spring. She was flying a cheap little princess kite at a church potluck. The Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage paper just begs to be cut out into individual flourishes. To create the round photo, I printed an 8.5x11 and used a Crafter's Workshop circle template to trace and cut the photo. I was really excited when this layout was the featured layout at 2peas last week!

I snapped this photo of Larissa and DH just before he went on a trip for work. For the centre of the flower, I used a little square chipboard piece from the Pink Paislee houndstooth alphabets. I love when alphabets have little extras on them. I used them on the right hand side of the photos as well.
