Better Late than Never...

 Good Afternoon my fellow Scrappers!!!! I feel like a broken record when saying this, but I want to apologize again for being a very bad blogger! I do have a good excuse this time....I went on vacation and as soon as I returned I had surgery on my back.  And even though I am pretty much housebound  for now, I have found it very therapeutic to scrap and create while going through the healing process.

Today I am sharing 2 more projects that I created with the "Gypsy Summer" July kit. The beautiful vibrant colors in this kit is so perfect for those summer photos. This is a picture of my baby girl, Abigail, with her cousin, Avery during one of our annual 4th of July family reunions. I truly loved how this page came together so easily!!!!

This next page is one of my favorite pictures of my son, Caleb. Again, this was taken during one of our 4th of July reunions. My goal for this page was to work primarily with the papers that had lime green and turquoise. A new technique for me was making the "splats" of paint on the background of the paper...I used the Tim Holtz distress stain in Broken China. Loved how that turned out!!!! Lastly, I wanted to use one of the cool stamps provided in the kit so I inked the heart/swirl stamp with versamark then sprinkled a green shade of embossing powder, heated it up, and viola....DONE!!!!!! I am completely in love with how this page turned out!!!!!!! 

This is such a fun kit packed full of color and fab accessories!!!!! I will definitely be using this kit again when working on my many summer photos.
Wishing you all a wonderful Friday!!!!
