Project 12 May

Since the day I received my June Scrapbook Circle kit in the mail I knew I wanted to use it to create my May project 12 layout. The majority of what I used is from the kit but of course pulled a few embellies, letters, and the the black and white Luxe paper from my stash. I'm so proud of my self for digging into the kit and not hoarding the Girls Paperie goodies. It is my goal, as I've mentioned before to really start using up my kits and not just hoarding them!

I used the Project 12 sketch, and of course, it was 2pages, but I think I'm starting to get a little bit more comfortable with these 2 pagers (finally). We had so many parties during May that there was no way I could only include 4 photos, so I made a "quasi" collage in photoshop (but the the funny thing is that all of the photos are from one party- which was my cousins Jeremy's super 17 and Tyler's sweet 16). Their party was extra-special because Tyler struggles with cystic fibrosis and has been fighting the disease tooth and nail since he was a baby. He is such a sweet, happy young man and I wanted to document his and his brother's party properly! So cheers to May---truely a month of celebrating life!
