P12 - 2014 August AND a Free Kit coming your way soon!

Good morning!  Here in the States we have a 3 day weekend.  Yay!  No work; no school on Monday.  My husband is enjoying himself learning how to judge a BBQ competition.  I'm just glad I am home in the air conditioning instead!  It's hot here in Texas!

Labor Day weekend; end of summer and start of fall.  yippee!  I love the fall/winter seasons.  The beginning of the school year always marks an upcoming change of weather for me, and I'm always looking forward to the cooler temperatures and the start of a routine when the kids get back to school!

This weekend I'm bringing to you the August P12 2014 kit featuring Back to School!  I know a lot of people have already been back in school for a while, but we just started this past Monday.  I have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader this year!  My 5th grader moved up to a new school; leaving his sister behind on her own in the elementary school.  She was really nervous about it at first.  By Friday I think she had the hang of walking in all on her own!

Here is the kit preview.  It's on sale at Romajo's shop 

And here is what I made with it.  I also used a few things from the Strings & Things and Stamps & Paints to complete my layout!  A year long coordinated kit!! Love it.
I also used a template from Melidy Designs.

I've been making journal cards for you each month with the P12 - 2014 kit, but haven't had time to this month.  I will post them some time in the next week, so keep an eye on my blog.
(September 2014 blog post is updated with the August freebie link as well! but here it is as well)

Also, keep an eye on Romajo's blog & facebook page.  A new Digi Express is ready to roll out on Monday, September 1st!  It's a great free kit for you from Romajo!  If you haven't already, sign up for her newsletter to get a part of the complete kit!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Elsa Dress!

OK, first thing to point out is that I DID NOT MAKE this dress!  BUT isn't it beautiful!  My little Princess is super excited for Halloween now, and even more excited that because the dress was slightly too long she *had* to get high heels!!! favorite view....from the back!
Now - she insists her hair needs to grow a bit more to do the Elsa braid!

Tequilla Salsa

Whether you enjoy a cocktail now and then, like the colors of the Beach Club at Disney, or like to Luau, this kit is versatile for you!  I loved the light colors and the cocktails!  I needed this kit when I was working on my pre-wedding pages!  LOL

You can read more about it on Romajo's blog.   And for the first week, it's on sale in her shop!  Perfect time to snag some end of summer goodies.

And here is what I made with it this past week.  Kind of a Throwback Thursday too.  This was our trip to WDW in 2010.  If you haven't been to the Polynesian's Luau, it's a fun time!

Now - off to enjoy one of my last weekends of the summer.  We start school in 2 weeks and while the kids aren't excited, I'm looking forward to getting back into a more structured routine!!

Happy Saturday!

P12 2014 - July

It's the end of the month - and with that brings a new installment of Romajo's monthly kit.  This one makes me think of surfing!  We recently watched Soul Surfer and so I have a new awareness and appreciation for surfing!  While we don't have any surfing pictures (and hardly any ocean pictures), I used this kit for a splash park instead - totally shark free there!  LOL  You can read more about it at Romajo's blog or purchase for a discount opening week at her store!

There are also two paper packs being released today to coordinate with the 2014 P12 kit (which is totally huge!  Have you been collecting everything?)

And here is my splash park page!  I love splash parks - I can get cooled off without committing to a swimsuit!!
I've also got 2 cards for your collection if you would like them.  They can be downloaded here.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!  Ours is quickly coming to an end!
