Birds of a Feather June Kit featuring Glitz Design

Hi there dear friends!!! It's been a while since I've posted and I've missed it terribly!!!  I have just not felt very well over the past couple of weeks and I've been trying to catch up on sleep and take it nice and easy.
I was able to get lots of rest over the weekend and I'm hoping now, with the medication I'm on, I'll level out and get back to my normal self again.

I did have the wonderful opportunity to be the guest designer over at Birds of a Feather Kit Co. for the month of June!!  Birds of a Feather kits are absolutely amazing and this month they are featuring Glitz Design Goodies!! You can only imagine my excitement at the opportunity!!!!  Here's this month's kit:
check out all the Glitz Goodness, and my favorite part of the kit, the Heidi Swapp Destination Pennants by Pink Paislee!!!!
I also love the Hambly Clouds!!! They are so much fun to play with!!!
The wood veneer shapes by Studio Calico are also awesome!!!  What am I saying....This whole kit is totally awesome!!!
This layout featured photos from Heidi's Graduation party.  Of course I had to use a quote from Dr. Seuss's Oh the Places You'll Go book!!!  Don't the girls look happy!!!  What a huge accomplishment!
The next project I've had in my mind for a couple of month's now!!  The Glitz Design Bicycle paper is absolutely fabulous and I knew that I was going to have to make some wall art with it!!!
The "Discover" flag from the kit put my mind in motion!!  I chose the She Was A Daughter stamp by Christy Tomlinson for Unity Stamps to create the scene.   I stamped her on several of the papers included in the kit and paper pieced them together on the bicycle paper.  I glued the clouds to rustic cream paper and fussy cut them out and layered them under the sweet banner.  Of course, I had to add a veneer plane flying overhead!!

The saying says Discover the Simple Joys in life.  I want to remind myself each and every day that it's the Simple Things in life that bring joy and whenever I see it hanging in my living room, I will remember!!

My last project was a quick and simple card using another banner from the kit:
It's quick and easy and a perfect way to send off your traveling friend!!

I had so much fun with this kit and I hope you are able to score one for yourself!!!  You'll be happy you did!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
