Swirlydoos July Kit

Hey Everyone,

I was finally able to play with the July Kit this week from Swirlydoos! I created two layouts so far. One is for the July Budget Blooms challenge. For this layout, I used the Stuck on You Sketch and flowers from Dollar Tree. This was my first attempt at all this fussy cutting on a layout! So much work, LOL! But I love the way it turned out.

It is a picture of my daughter at 18 months old at the Henry Ford Estate waiting for professional pictures to be taken. It was extremely hot and she went from being silly to very irritated for this picture session. So i decided to take pictures while we were waiting.

For my 2nd Layout, I created this layout for the August Round Robin Challenge. This time I was to lead off the challenge. The theme of the challenge is HOT, HOT, HOT. So I used a picture of my daughter playing in the sprinklers last summer to cool off.

Thank you for looking! Goodnight!
