Adventures in Scrapbooking: Using kits - week 1

Last Thursday I started a new Big Picture Scrapbooking class that is called Adventures in Scrapbooking: Using Kits. It is taught by super creative May Flaum. I know May from her years as one of the Lead Fiskateers and she is always up to something fun. During the first week May used the August kit by Jenni Bowlin that of course I have. So far I made only one layout from the kit so I was glad to dig it out and create few layouts.

Summerfest 2009. The letter stickers are also by Jenni Bowlin but they came in a different kit.
Those little flower sequins are so cute!

In this layout I was inspired by May to stitch a photo mat from the journaling cards.

I had those cute pictures that I took during one of my stroller walks few weeks ago. I used 2 pieces of deep burgundy cardstock that was not part of the kit but fit nicely with the colors. The leave and the squirrel are cut with USX using this and this templates.

The punched border is sprayed with some gold glimmer mist. The layout is based on a sketch by May.
I have another layout in works and probably enough papers for 2 more layouts.
