This started out to be a challenging kit. I had zero motivation and then it clicked. I used practically every scrap of paper and for once, used up all the rubons.

This was a great kit. I did about eight layouts and used nearly every sticker in the kit. I ended up adding two additional pieces of card stock and a few tags, some flair and some string but this kit was very inclusive with everything.

I used a bunch of stuff from my stash and the Heidi Swapp Serendipity line.
Another road trip layout and a visit with one of my "online friends" and her crew. We met years ago and on my travels, stopped to visit her again.
I'm still finishing up my road trip layouts - three more to go!
This month has been busy getting the kids ready of school and changing the house around but I had time to get two layouts done.
I have not made a single purchase in months but I broke the spell and picked up the Crate Paper Boys Rule 12x12 paper pad for $5. I wish they had the embellishments but I made due.
I used some stuff in my stash but this is 90% from the 12x12 pad.

I swear I'm not an animal hoarder! We've had two pugs and a cat for nearly ten years. The fish were a festival win and the bunny (layout coming) was a present for the 4 year old.
I met this bird at a Farmer's Market and fell in love instantly. It's an old Cockatoo named the same exact name as my daughter and I say there petting it for an hour. I really wanted to bring it home but the several thousand dollar price tag was not appealing. I think her adoption fee was only $500 but the vet bills and food was too steep for me. I may end up volunteering with the bird rescue just to spend time with my little friend.
For this layout I used up the last bits of the Scraptastic Summer Nights kit; Studio Calico wood veneers; Crate Paper the Pier and Boys Rule Paper but I'm not sure where the flair came from. The letters are both American Craft and one is from Scraptastic.

I had so much fun with this kit. I did seven layouts and they are all Road Trip layouts, plus I used some of the Summer Nights leftover epherma and bits and pieces from my stash. (I'll have to do a space tour so that you can see why I can't find anything!)
For these layouts I was traveling through Western Coastal Florida, the Treasure Island/St Petersburg area and Weeki Wachi Spring. I didn't get great shots of the underwater mermaid show but we took pictures at their mermaid meeting.
Also the last layout here is the first birthday party I ever had. It was such a cool day to share with my friend C who shares a birthday with me.

I had a blast with this kit! I somehow thought I'd be able to use one kit for my entire two week road trip but I did get ten whole layouts with it.
I plan to use the birthday kit (August 2014) for the rest of the layouts.
