Kite Festival

This year we managed to go to the kite festival. So many different kites, so much fun! Well, half of the time, I spent untangling the string because Sarah ran into another kid, but we wont talk about that - right?

Bo Bunny has this wonderful fall line Apple cider. I only managed to get the paper pad, but better than nothing! (although I would love to have all the cool embellishments...sigh. That alone would be a reason to move to the USA....LOL!)

The layout is based on the sketch by Sketchabilites Nr 76.You can find it here. I am also very happy to see that my layout is featured for the sketch Nr 75. 

The weekly challenge for Frosted Designs is to use doilies. So I will link it up there as well. Hope they don't mind!

For the title, I cut up one of the little tags, matted it and added the stickers on top.

I made this little kite by embossing green cardstock, added some ribbon and cut up the little bow ties which I inked and decorated with a little bling. 

The sticker sheet comes with cute little saying. The Prima vine from my stash worked perfectly with it.

And this is what it looks like when you open up the pictures. Almost all my layouts have something to open up, flip, turn or unroll. I just like it and find it funny.

This layout is all about my big girl. DS had also a big surprise for us yesterday morning. He is only 9 months old! This was taken at 5:30 in the morning (yes, he is an early riser) you can see I had not had time to clean up yet.... sorry about that!)

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
