Made with Love & Barnyard Blowout

Hey guys! Just thought I'd pop in and share a couple of LOs I've made with Susan's beautiful kits this past month. The first is a page I did using my son's first homework assignment sent home from Pre-K. I used the Made With Love kit, which is technically a cooking themed kit, but I just loved that little apple to pieces for a homework page! I did a little cut and paste magic on the green postage stamp frame to get it to the same proportions as his homework page I'd scanned in. The red font is by the lovely Ali Edwards, and the black font is just your standard Century Gothic. This was such a fun fresh kit that I can't wait for the holiday cooking pages I'm sure I'll use it for this year!

This next page is one I started working on the night before the 9/11 anniversary. I found it so surreal to be scrapping such an event and to scrap my thoughts from so long ago, but as I'm sure is true with everyone, that day is still so fresh in my mind... even as I was just a little 19 year old girl in my first year away at college. I took the photo on the mission trip I'd just been on there, in NYC... in the Twin Towers, just two months before they were attacked. Anyway, I used the Barnyard Blowout kit in a rather unconventional way, playing it mostly neutral for a peaceful contemplative feel. I actually even desaturated the red and blue buttons just a bit to keep the monochrome feel with just a small hint of the patriotism the 9/11 anniversary stirs every year.

I also made this into a quickpage for you to share a photo and jot down your 10 year thoughts too.
