Another kitty! This is our Chloe, and I used the "Renew" collection here. I love the colours in these papers! We were planning a trip to pick up our sone from university(2 hours each way) so I drew the lines and poked the holes for the stitching ahead of time, and it turned out to be a perfect way to pass several hours of car time! I love to handstitch on my layouts and do it often, but it is a tad time-consuming. The butterfly is a new Memory Box die-my wonderful LSS, Papercraft Cafe, is always bringing in new dies that I can't live without!
For a change, this layout features a creature of the two-legged and not so furry variety-my son Graham at age 2! He was so proud of himself clomping around in my cousin's hiking boots (hard to believe this little guy just turned 21-how time flies!) This is the "Curiosity" collection, which is mostly school-themed, but it worked perfectly here, especially because even at 2, my son loved books, letters and words.
I've always been a mix-and-match scrapper and usually tend to avoid kits and collections, but working with these has definitely made me rethink that; they were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to being able to create more projects with them!
