June Celebrations

Hi there, are you ready for June!

Welcome to this months edition of 12 Kits of Occasions of Occasions for May! Our host for the month is Tracey McNeely . Tracey sent some beautiful plaid papers and fun things for the celebrations of June, as you can see in the photo above.

I was a bit afraid I would mess up this pretty bloom but glad I went ahead and watercolored it. I added some shimmer to the center but not sure you can see in this picture.

 This was fun to make as Tracey had everything we needed included in the kit!

The little girl was holding an apple but I wanted her to have a few bouquets of flowers in her hand. I added a few of my own from Papertrey Ink .
Time is flying by so fast for me, life is full and full of so many blessings. We are still working hard on the remodel and happy to check a few things of the list.

I am so sorry for all the people suffering from the floods, my heart and prayers go out to you.

Please stop by the 12 Kits of Occasions blog to see what the rest of the group has created with the same kit.

 I hope you have a wonderful June.

Summer Colors

Laurie Schmidlin

Hi there ! I loved Laurie's card so much I just had to play in this challenge and as you can see I used very similar colors. I would say anything with pinks might be my favorite but loved these colors.

Simon Says: Use Stencils
Simon Says: Bright Colors Inspiration Moodboard

I couldn't make up my mind what picture to use so I added both. 

We're still getting rain here in Southern California, it just poured here. Not the norm but we love it, because we know the heat's coming, and we can turn the sprinklers off!

Hope you have a great day! 

I used Papertrey Ink : Some Like it Hot
Altenew: Wavy Grid Stencile
Memory Box: Pinpoint Circle Frame 
Tim Holtz: Distressed Oxide Inks

Have to run and take our big pup to the vet.

Hello Lovely Spring Colors

Hi there! Don't you just love this beautiful picture and wonderful Spring colors! Hope to see you play along!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!

I used the beautiful Concord & 9th : Hello Lovely stamp and die set. I recently bought the die and so glad I did. I really had fun playing around with all the stamps in this set and then watercoloring over it a bit more to soften it up. 
This is kinda different for me , but I do like the way it turned out. 

I used Memory Box for the tag and Poppystamps Whittle birds all listed and a few linked below.

Thank you and God bless!
Simon Says: For A Special Lady

Memory Box : Tag You're It Rectangles
Memory Box: Studio Rectangle Layers
 Concord & 9th: Hello Lovely BUNDLE
