wearing white sweatpants,
but now, as I sit here,
I am wearing red and yellow and blue splotched sweatpants --
just as they SHOULD look after a scrap-happy coupla days.
The JBS mid-month gallery is raring to go,
chock full of gorgeous and creative ideas for using the April Mercantile kits.
I seriously swooned when I saw Kerry Lynn's backgrounds
and Keisha's flowers and Danielle's cards and Doris's misting and...
just go look!
Here are my contributions to the gallery,
and the reason why I'm rocking varicolored sweats:
My daughter requested the silly title.
How could I refuse her, especially after she won FOUR superiors
(of four possible) at the speech meet yesterday?
Gosh, and she did it all without tiger blood or without trolls interfering. Har har.
This next layout is all about one of my favorite foods EVER, lumpia.
It's kind of tedious to make, but my daughter is a pro at folding the wrappers,
so with both of us working together, we can kick out a batch in no time.
I've had a few photos of my mom and Z
that I've been meaning to include on a layout,
and this kit was PERFECT for them.
This layout uses the April Showers add-on kit and a few of the main kit items.
I SO love this Bazzill glazed cardstock, which is perfect as is,
but, as I discovered, also cooperates quite nicely with mist and paint.
I repurposed the cord that was attached to the dress hanging form,
and strung the vintage milk caps, letters, and other bits and pieces from it.
The filter papers that came in the add-on kit were so fun to play with,
especially with the addition of JBS for Ranger dye inks.
I suppose this layout can be credited with starting the transformation
from white sweatpants to white sweatpants no more.
In addition to creating five layouts with this month's kits,
I also added two more pages to my Savor album.
To create the pocket on the right,
I repurposed the packaging that held the wooden letters from the main kit.
I also had
j u s t
enough time this afternoon
to break into this month's project kit
and to create this garland, which is now brightening up my kitchen:
Can you tell how much I LOVE this month's kits?
I love them so much I'm wearing them. :)
