Guest designing for *Tidbitz in Time* June kit

You know how it can be,... Sometimes you don't have much to share or to write about. Then some days you have a lot. That is how it has been the last couple of days for me. Different guest stints, a feature, and tomorrow it is time again for the new sketch at Once Upon A...Sketch where I will have a new page again. That's the way I like it to be....
Today I have several pages to share with you.
I got the beautiful June kit from Tidbitz in Time to play with and I sure had some fun!!

It contains the prettiest patterned papers from "Pink Paislee" "Butterfly Garden" and "7Gypsies" "Conservatory " as well as  a beautiful array of flowers and bling from "Zva Creative". The gorgeous  ribbon that comes with the kit add a lovely finishing touch!

This is the first of my layouts. Beatrice had been playing a cat in a school play and had not washed off her whiskers yet.
They looked so cute I had to get my camera out ( well it doesn't take much for that to happen actually...). The photos I got are my new favourites and you will be seeing more pages with them I am sure!

The kit is jam packed with all the goodies you can imagine.
Just look at this picture....!
You can use the pink or blue accents like I did to adapt the kit to a boy or a girl.

The second layout is about Beatrice with her youngest cousin that she has only met twice. I used the turquoise trim as a kind of pleated border together with a punched strip.
Most of you will know by now that I love my corrugated cardboard, and usually it will be whitewashed. If you are not too fussed about acid free etc you can use the packaging that you get many times when you buy your scrap goodies on the iternet. I think that together with the pleated ribbon it adds a lot of character and texture.

I used the white ribbon to make decorations for my flower clusters. I just arranged the ribbon in loops to add some 'lift' to my page. The text paper here is by "7Gypsies" and the rest of the pp's are by "Pink Paislee"

One more to go for this time.
I cut a circle out of the gorgeous butterfly paper and backed it with grey cardstock. I thought it looked a bit dark so I dry brushed the grey with white, and that created more the look that I was aiming for.
Punched strips help me build up my design. The flowers were made with my trusted friend, the large retro flower punch.

Our kitten, Lady, is so so cute. I altered the picture in Picasa to make her sweet face stand out against the otherwise  black and white. You do that by just pressing a button so it is really easy!

And here are the close ups to go with this layout:

I had so much fun playing with this kit!

I will have a couple more pages from the kit to share a little later in the week/month...

Thank you SO much to Wendy for having me!
