Two for One

Happy Wedneday!! The middle of the week, finally!! I am so looking forward to the weekend, its be a long week.

Today I am going to share a couple of layouts I made with the July add-on kit from
The Paper Bakery, "Country Picnic". This add-on had so many possibilities, very versatile. There are still a few available in the shop here, so head over and check it out!! Full of goodies, including some very unconventional scrappy items.

I am sharing two very different layouts today over on the blog, this helps to show just how versatile this kit it. One layout is decidedly more "girly", while the other layout uses nontraditional girl colors, but still comes off as a very sweet, and lovely layout.

By focusing on the black and pink in my daughters shirt, I come off with a layout focusing more of the feminine aspects of the kit, and have a cute girly little layout...but even using these colors, it doesn't come off overly feminine.

By using feminine die cuts and images, I took very "boy" patterns and colors and made them work in this layout about my sweet little lady.

This is one of my favorite things about the kits that Sarah puts together at The Paper Bakery...there are so many possibilities with them, and them make you stretch those creative muscles and step out of the box!

Make sure you head over to the blog, and check out all the info and details on the July add-on and project kit...also check out the details on our sketch challenge and play along for an awesome prize pack! :)

Have a great day, and take time to create something you love.
