June Cocoa Daisy layouts.

I have to admit that my favorite layouts are always those with a white background and BRIGHT colors! That explains why I had so much fun playing with this months kit - it was full of bright pretty colors! In fact there were enough colors and patterns in this months kit for me to create a rainbow :)

The butterfly punches are from Martha Stewart. The title is made using the ampersand stamp from the main kit and the exclusive completer stamp set available ala carte in the store.

The background on this layout was made using a stencil from Crafter's Workshop. I used this same stencil on a layout last month, but just by using brighter mist colors on white the look is totally different.

Out of all the fun stuff in this month's kit these little teeny tiny paper clips are one of my favorite embellishments.

I found this picture of Nate and his cousins (yes that is my little Na Na! who is now almost 9!) when we moved and have had it on my desk waiting for the right kit. Well with a banner that says "summer days" I think this month's kit fit perfectly!

Instead of a mist add-on this month I chose some bright paint and ink colors from Jenni Bowlin and after seeing this beautiful creation from Anja I knew how I wanted to use them. I always have leftover bits of paper from when I mist and stamp that are just too pretty to throw away and now I have the perfect place to put them. I want this to be a work in progress so I am just binding my book together with a big binder clip - makes it easy to add pages and to pull out pages and play with them.

Lastly is just simple piece of wall art. I think it will look pretty in a plain white frame.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
