Studio Calico Boardwalk kit

Sometimes you have a wonderful shopping trip to your local scrapbook store, or if you are like me a you receive a scrappy mail delivery since the scrapbook stores are not local anymore! Well with the craziness of life lately I was just able to get to my Studio Calico kit that arrived last month. It was hard to have it on my scrap desk and not be able to touch it!!!! But oh,euphoria when I did bust into it. My scrappy little paws couldn't stop! It was trimmers on fire, adhesive on the loose and thickers gone wild as I created two layouts before the boys even noticed I was missing in Scrapland.

Can you name the song I was listening to?? My title was kinda inspired by it!
Hint: It it country...
Normally I don't care much for Basic Grey paper, but a few border punches and my go-to layout was complete!
Aren't these Thickers fun?!!

Yes another song inspired title for this page! This page was so much fun for me to create! I challenged myself to a lot of "firsts"
1. I cut along the shape of the honeycomb paper
2. Used a new American Crafts chalkboard embelly
3. Stamped...the circle is a stamp on kraft cardstock with a paper punched center
4. I JOURNALLED!!! YAY me! Not only that, I typed it on the computer which came out with the exact effect I wanted!

I am slightly addicted to my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher...

When I was able to get back to Scrapland...I made one more layout with this kit!

For this one, I cut down the cream cardstock and adhered  it right onto the back of the 1st layout, since they were from the same vacation! I still need to journal on this one...

When I do the title will make more sense...see Kyle (the cutie in the pictures) was potty training while we were on this camping trip to Clear Lake. He was doing awesome, except for the fact that he would drop and go pee whenever he needed to go...even if it was by the dinner table or on a cop's foot! Yes one of our friend's who happens to be a police officer found his foot in the direct path of Kyle's stream! I laughed creating this page almost as much as I did when it actually happened!

Another Tiny Attacher sighting!

And this was all that was left of the kit! Perhaps it will make it's way to the next Consignment Sale!!!
