Kit Versatility

Three totally different projects, all from the same kit. I'm amazed. It was fun scrapping Junior Prom. I hadn't looked through those pictures in a while because I really don't like the guy I went with anymore. I had originally planned for the LOs to be in the opposite order than how they show now, but I didn't realize I had it flipped until after I photographed them. Looking at the pictures afterward, I realized that it didn't matter.

The second LO is my current "favorite" LO. I really like the way it came out and I like the photo strip I managed to put together in Photoshop. I don't use Photoshop much because a) I'm not very good with it and b) it's on the desktop not the laptop, but I did have fun with this. I might have to branch out just a little bit. There's a glaring error on the page but I'm trying to not let it bother me. And the photo is my hands while I was wrapping them for kickboxing. I set the camera on a timer and set it on the floor while I wrapped up my hands.

The last is a simple mother's day card I made up for my bud Nathan for him to give to his mom for Mother's Day. Simple as it may be, because there is so much to the patterned paper I think it really came together. I felt any additional embellishments would have made it look too busy.

I've about worn the C2P May kit completely out. I'm hoping to make a dent on the LRS kit this week, but I've got a few things in mind that might take away from scrapping. A friend from the gym clued me in to a used book store about 20 minutes from my place which I want to check out and I still have to squeeze in four visits to the gym (two down so far this week) and finish up shopping for Mother's Day and Mom's Graduation before I head home for both events.

Really like the card! All are great, I've got another one going and I'll still have one or two sheets left so a lot of mileage out of this kit.

I've got a few pieces of sheets left too, but i think i've chopped almost everything up to scraps...

your layouts are always nice, and the card is excellent, too.

i am dying to know what the error is. i think i know what it is and if we are thinking the same thing, i think it looks nice that way....
