Hey, sugar...

Pop on over to Label Tulip and check out their June kit called Sugar Shoppe! I've only been designing for them for a few months now, but this is definitely my favorite kit I've received so far. I love the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line! My Sweet Girlz page is a member lift of Steph Baxter. Each month we take turns choosing one person and all of us lift that particular layout. I loved how she did the 2 rows of photos, so I did 2 tiny rows of pics on each side and kept them black and white so they didn't over take the focal point photo in the center. HERE is Steph's layout and the other girls' takes on her page! (Scroll down towards the bottom.)
Kati has been asking me "how I got in your belly?" So I decided to make a page to remember her sweet question. That's a hard question to answer a 3 year old! I loved Malin's answer over at 2peas when I posted my page...her daughter thinks she was swallowed by her mom! LOL These are old pics of me when I was pregnant with Kati.
This next page was created with a couple of papers from the main kit and the rest was from the Salt Water Taffy add-on kit. I turned the little round die cut papers into a rainbow. I think I've done pages on this subject before...but Kati is seriously such a good girl and so easy and happy. She makes me laugh and brightens my day each and every day!
Besides the monthly member lift, we are also challenged each month with a specific challenge:

This month's challenge is all about cooking up some sweet treats... scrapbooking treats, that is! Create something delicious: a recipe book, cupcake picks, a page about your favorite sugary treats... whatever your heart desires (or your creative sweet tooth craves).


I came up with a little card that holds candy on the front. I used the packaging from the Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons to hold the candy. (Nerds...that's all I had on hand at the time. LOL At least the colors matched!)
And each month there is an exclusive stamp in the kit made JUST for Label Tulip! I stamped it onto the patterned paper and cut out the center to hold the flowers.

I am busy playing with some new goodies this week...can't say just yet who or what it is...but it's unbelievably gorgeous stuffs! Also getting ready for Kati's birthday. We are celebrating it on Sunday with Father's Day. My hubby and father-in-law get to share their day with pink cakes, princess hats and crown pinatas...ha! Should be a fun-filled day. Well, I'm off to catch some winks. We are all worn out and sunburned from field day at the school today. G'nite!
