Cocoa Daisy kit and a few more from the crop....

I got my April Cocoa Daisy kit on Thursday and I purchased some of the add ons, too!  It is SOOOO awesome and my most favorite kit ever!  Unfortunately, I think it is all sold out.  But check the store anyways! 

When I see sneak peeks of kits, I starting pulling out photos to go along with the kit.  So when I saw the piece of American Crafts paper with the rain drops on it, I knew exactly which photos to use!



Unfortunately, we don't get anough rainy days around here!  But when it rains, it pours, literally.  Charlotte hadn't learned yet to be scared of the thuder and lightning, but she was getting quite upset that her toys were getting all wet...even though they are pool toys.



I totally screwed up a word in the journaling and I HATE when I do that!  Oh well...I handwrite all the time because I think it adds a more personal touch to my pages.  I guess people will jsut know that I was a bad *speeler*.

Anyways, I punched some holes in the top right and bottom of the page to let the bllue background stand out.  The cloud is from the Jillibean Soup paper, and the paper I journaled on is from Studio Calico...its that piece with the birch trees and when I turned it sideways I thought it'd be perfect for journaling.

The 2nd page I made with my kit I used a sketch from a new sketch site "Once Upon A Sketch".  The papers are Basic Grey and Glitz, and all the little embellies came in the kit. 




I hemmed and hawed about using the rub-ons, but I like the way it turned out!  I like rub ons a lot, but don't use them enough.





Lastly is a page I made using some more of the We R Memory Keepers Family line from Your Scrapbook Stash.  I loved the colors on this paisley print and because it is so busy, I knew the rest of the page had to be somewhat simple. 



This page was based on a sketch at Citrus Tree Studios crop this past week.  I did 4 of the 8 challenges, in 2 days, which I was very pleased with!!!




Speaking of this line, I have a project that will post to Simply Renee Clip It Up on Wednesday using the We R Family line and the Clip It Up Wall Mount.  I have been working on this forever, it seems!!!!! 

OH and I got my first Magpie Club kit on Friday...the reveal will be the end of the month, and let me tell you you are going to LOVE this kit....so so gorgeous!!
