Back again to share a couple more of my layouts using the May kit for Citrus Twist Kits!
I think this is my favourite layout from this month, mostly because I love the story behind it. See a few years back when Zack was younger and I was just starting to scrapbook, I may have told him that it was "work" and that he had to leave me alone for a while so that I didn't get into trouble.... Terrible white lie, I know. But it worked and in fact...it still works!
He loves getting the boxes off the front door and taking them inside, smiling for a photo, then helping me unpack. After which he'll go sit down and watch TV or play lego, or something similar, so "I can do work and not get in trouble from the boss".
I know I probably should let him know it's not technically work....but....well, you see, he's so quiet, and it's just so..nice, lol.
This layout is a combination from a few of the May kits - Main kit, Embellishment kit plus both the paper add-ons (and I used a piece of vellum from my stash). Love the colours on this - soft and pretty without being "girly" given he's a little dude ;)
Next up is this one and its all about the gold. Loooove all the gold in this month's kit. Can never have too much ;) I debated cutting up the paper form the Main kit for so long! Part of me wanted to hoard it but I am trying to learn to let go.... What is the point of having all this gorgeous stuff if I don't actually use it...sooo, I chopped it up.
Then it was just a matter of stitching straight down the middle of the page a few times, because let's face it, no layout of mine is ever complete without machine stitching on it ;)
Added a strip of washi at the top and bottom, popped the photo on top, few stars here and there and done! Once I finally made the decision to chop the paper up this layout actually came together easily!
And that's it for now!
