Pics from May kit

Unfortunately it's rainy and cloudy today so I'm having problems getting good pics of these layout. But these are the ones I've gotten done so far. They are really simple but I didn't feel these pictures needed a lot.  I still have lots of product left and more pics of these events to get done!  As always, pictures are clickable for a bigger/better view.

The first 2 are my granddaughter, Jolie with my neice, Lauren. Lauren was playing with her on the playground at church. Jolie loved it. I layered some of the tissue paper diecut flowers and used the green glitter glue in the kit to make the swirls. This stuff is a lot like Stickles but came from Michaels. The little word pieces (love, for you) are cut from another paper in the kit. The "constant motion" is from stickers in my stash. I love the blurry picture of Jolie at the bottom. She is so busy it's almost possible to get a picture of her not moving! That picture just typifies what my pics of her usually look like! lol

The next 2 are my grandson, Gavin. We usually go to Myrtle Beach each spring and there is a couple who build a huge sand castle every year. I took these pictures from the balcony of the condo on the 7th floor. Gotta love a good zoom lens! In the pictures, Gavin is making sand angels and walking on the beach with my husband to see the sand castle The boats and anchors are cut from one of the papers. The "memories" diecut is included in the kit. I did add the "sand angel" stickers. Notice the cute little alligator brads? Those are included!

The next 2 layouts are my grandson, Freelyn playing in my brother's backyard on Mother's Day this year. He was so enthralled with the my nephew's, toys, the tire swing, and the bikes in the backyard. I hand cut the hearts out of one of the papers. And the green bandanna paper is a square 12x12. I just cut out the middle to use as a diecut on my page. I'll use the border I have left on another layout.

May Kit at last!

Finally! May kit is listed on Etsy! Still working on samples. Will post those probably tomorrow! This kit is full of cute Martha Stewart cardstock and lots of other goodies! Fun!

New Kit

Still trying to get the pictures of my kit done! Took them Sat but for some reason the lighting just hasn't cooperated with me. So re-doing them today. Cute Martha Steward papers and great for those school activites you need to scrap or those summer outdoor pics! That's all I'm saying for now! Heehee!

Any Hero Cards

Wow! I actually got something made! Operation Write Home is doing awesome work sending cards to our service people for them to use to send back home to their loved ones. If you aren't familiar with them, check them out! These are called "any hero" cards. I will write a note in these and add them to a box of cards. Operation Write Home will make sure both of these are delivered to one of our military people. Cool, huh?

These are both made on a kraft paper base. The papers are MME Bohemia line. Stamp on the pink square is Inkadinkado Flower Sentiments. Ink is Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.

Do you ever just wonder what you're supposed to be doing? As a Christian, I know God has a plan for my life. Some things I never question. I know what I believe. I know where my allegiances are. But sometimes, more often than I care to admit, I just wonder where I'm going. Or if I missed a turn in the road somewhere and am on an extremely long detour. Lost and wandering in the wrong direction. Or just lost and not going anywhere. I've been in one of those phases for several weeks now. I don't like it. I'm ready to get wherever it is that I'm headed. I've never been good at waiting for anything. Patience truly is a virtue that I totally missed out on. But God is good and I know His plan is always better than my feeble ones. So, wait I will. Even if I don't like it.

With that said, for those of you who noticed there was no April kit, hopefully the May kit will be up and ready for purchase by  this weekend! But not if I don't quit whining and get off of here! So off to try to finish it up and get off this detour before I go completely mad!
