Got Your Boyfriend

September's Freehand Scraps kit is packed full of colorful papers. You'll find BasicGrey Junebug mixed in with Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend and a dash of Fancy Pants. With just this one kit I created 4 cards, 4 lay outs and a little mini album, with one kit! The embellishments were fun and this kit just flowed, it was very easy to work with.
This fun piece of fabric is included of course, I hand stitched to highlight the number 2. I love the Jenni Bowlin tiny circle alphas, they are a must have! I stitched down the wire word.

I like the way this turned out, I love the design of the Union Jack and was excited about making one for this lay out. I have had the photo of Becky and I for a few years, it was waiting for a good home. We were on our way to the Stones concert. Both of us are pregnant with our first born.

This mini was made with the Maya Road envelopes that come in the kit. I used a bind it all to make them into an album.

Everything I used for all the projects come with the kits! Well, no bind it all!

The pockets hold cards where I have written all of our favorite books.

Lily is obsessed with all things doggy.

Some of my favorites........
1000 White Women
The Red Tent
Daughter of Fortune
Girl with a Pearl Earring
The Boxcar Children
Little Women
I'll post more Freehand Scraps Projects tomorrow!

Awesome girl!! I have used that somewhat clear baggie/envelope thingys before in an album. I really love doing that b/c you can tuck little whatnots/memorabilia in there.
I am so loving that mini (of course! lol) and both of those layouts ROCK!!!
I love the alphas on the Rolling Stones page!
Killa, babe!
