Label Tulip's July kit was revealed last night and it's wonderful! The main kit is filled with goodies that are perfect for both a travel/journey theme or any other summer time adventure.
Here are the layouts I did for this month. I'll share the cards, soon.
This first one uses some Little Yellow Bicycle and October Afternoon papers. The transparencies are LYB, aren't they fun?
I love the colors on this next one. I used Fancy Pants, MM and Basic Grey papers. The chipboard is BG and the journaling card is October Afternoon.
Finally is this page. I don't usually do pages with lots of journaling, but I did on here. The challenge this month was to scrap the most exciting thing you've done in your life. I wrote about the day I told Fran I was pregant. Here's the journaling if you have any interest. I cut the page using another paper as a pattern and painted the edges.
It was the most exciting time of my life! I found out that I was pregnant on August 8, 2002. I took two tests just to be positive. I kind of knew they would be, as I was late and feeling VERY tired. But, when I looked down and saw the pink line, my heart swelled, tears filled my eyes and I knew my life would never be the same. We were going to have a baby! I had already planned on how to tell Fran. I headed to the drugstore and found the little ‘I Love Daddy’ frame. Then I wrote my message and slipped it into where the photo should be. Fran was moving offices on campus, so I called him and asked him if wanted to meet for lunch. I couldn’t wait to tell him! The morning dragged on. Finally, I drove down to U of D. I handed him the wrapped gift and told him it was a little something for his new office. I was shaking while he opened it. It took a second for him to read the message and then he looked up, his eyes wide with surprise. “REALLY?” is what he said. I nodded and then we were hugging and crying! We were beyond thrilled! I couldn’t believe it had happened so easily, especially at my age. We went to the Deer Park for lunch and talked about all of the possibilities that were now before us. The next nine months were wonderful. Of course, I was a nervous wreck. But, the wonder of it all was astounding. Feeling a baby move inside of me has truly been the most spectacular thing I’ve ever experienced. I prayed to God each night that everything would go well and to thank him for this miracle of life. And on April 9, 2003, our prayers were answered. Ryan was born at 6:53 pm and he was perfect in every way.
