My KNK July kit reveal!

And isn't it about time! I have been on vacation.... and this gem of a kit graced my doorstep the day after I left on my nearly 3-week-long trip across the midwest. I couldn't wait to get into it when I got home Saturday evening! So that's just what I did.
The purples and blues were just right for my middle child, Katelynn, they are her favorite colors so naturally I have lots of photos of her wearing them. This made it pretty easy to have my pictures printed and waiting for me when I got back!
Fussy-cutting is sort of my go-to technique and I usually look for useable embellishments in the paper first when designing a page. In the midst of all the pretty Peacocks and flourishes in these BoBunny "Peacock Lane" papers were these dainty little purple blooms with blue centers and gray leaves, and dressing them up was easy. I think they add a delicate touch, a nice counter-balance to the bold leaves on the tree in this layout.
A simple card is easy to put together from scraps....

.... and I always love to use the coordinating flowers that BoBunny makes for each line of paper. For this layout I used a couple iCandy brads for the centers of two layered flowers, and a Petaloo "Candies" flower for the center of the third. If you haven't seen these particular flowers from Petaloo they are soooo pretty!! The only thing that could make me love them more is if they came in more than one size :)
Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment and let us know you were here!
