Just You And Me

Happy Monday!! Did you all have a great weekend? Is your holiday shopping complete? Did you bake holiday goodies this weekend? Can you believe it's only 2 more weeks until Christmas??? No need to panic, I keep telling myself. No need to panic.

Here's a layout I made using the December Blue Hills Meadow kit from Citrus Tree Studio. It's primarily a holiday themed kit, but there is so much more you can do with the great colors in this kit.


I thought the blues and aquas and reds in the kit went well with the blue sky in the photo. The photo is from a camping vacation we took last summer. My daughter took the picture, that's why the angle is so funky! I really like the thick twine in the kit, I just used dots of wet glue to shape it into the swirls and heart on the page.


I will definitely be doing that technique more! It added a fun twist to the twine on the page.

I will be back later this week with some fun holiday decor, some ornaments and more goodie bags to share!! Thanks for stopping by today!
