Color Me Daisy and Lily Bee

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed working with this kit!! These Lily Bee papers are so beautiful and fab-u-lous!! The layouts practically laid themselves out for me! The first colors I saw when I looked at the papers were the dark red and blue. I am a huge fan of shapes so the first thing I did was to start cutting out the gorgeous flower pattern. I am really loving this first layout and hope you do too! I used a French title but I had to have some help because I haven't a clue about the French language, luckily my hubby did. These are my three beautiful children and my title is "je vous adore!", meaning I adore you!

This layout uses a more sarcastic approach for the title as the picture was taken on one of the days that my son's school was having spirit week. This particular day was Wacky Day. We did everything possible to make him look wacky from the tippy top of his head right down to his feet. He LOVED it!! Glad he doesn't want to do this style everyday!

This last layout is my sweet sweet Gracie girl!! I LOVE this photo of her!! It just captures the sweet playfulness of her personality. She is a little doll and I just love her to pieces!! This layout is for my monthly challenge at Color Me Daisy. My challenge is to get lots and lots of circles on a page. Between the paper circles, buttons, and embellies I got 24 circles on my page.

This next project, I had a blast putting together! I had my grandmother in mind while making it. She is in an assisted living facility and I know this will brighten her day without all of the upkeep of real flowers. I can't wait to give it to her!!

Yes, if you're wondering that is a spaghetti sauce jar! Recycle and reuse!!

The last thing to show is a card that I made with this kit. The only thing not in the kit that I used was some October Afternoon stamps. Isn't that owl so adorable?!?!?

Well, that's it from me for now. Hope you enjoy!!
