Happy Tuesday, All!
I wanted to take a moment to share the August Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit. Amy has done another amazing job putting together this kit. She mixed pieces from the Glitz "Color Me Happy" line with pieces from the Simple Stories "I {heart} Summer" line. The end result is a super fun, super color, super perfect for summer pictures, kit!

See, isn't that a fun kit?

And, since this is back-to-school month, I've had early reveal dates for this kit. The first two layouts were created this weekend. 

This layout was inspired by one by Scrapbook Circle DT member, Ursula Schneider. 

And this project is a Post-It holder. I created one last year for myself, and decided that I needed to make one for my best friend, and fellow teacher, Toda.

It's hard to believe that I only have one more reveal with this kit, especially since I just received my kit on Saturday :D I'll be back this weekend to share the rest of my creations with you.

And, I'm Back...

Yes, I am back to the land of blogging. I say it all the time, and it's true: when life gets crazy, my blog is always the first thing to suffer. Mos of the time it just seems like there isn't enough time in each day....

Anyway, life is a little more relaxed, right now. We are all on summer vacation, though I will be going back on August 12 and the students go back on August 15 (yep, I don't want to even THINK about that, right now).

No matter how crazy life gets, I always manage to find time to scrap. One of my most enjoyable moments each month is opening up my Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit and seeing what new goodies Amy has sent me. Working with her has been such an amazing experience, and I will be a part of her team for as long as she will have me!

Since I haven't shared a lot of my current layouts, I wanted to do that, now:

 This first layout was created using the March Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit. I LOVED this kit!

 Another layout using the March BOAF kit.

 For this layout, I used the April Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit and a new favorite sketch site, Page Drafts. I really low the fun patterns in this kit.

 Another April BOAF Kit Co. layout.

And another April layout....

And a final April layout.

 This layout was created using the May Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit and a Page Draft sketch.

 Another May BOAF Kit Co. kit and my first layout using my brand new Cameo.

Another May BOAF layout....

 And another.....

 And a CARD (I don't do many of those babies)

 And a final May layout.

 Moving on to the June Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit. This is a definite favorite kit of mine.
 I created this card using the June BOAF Kit Co. kit and fiber paste. Such a fun medium.

 Another June BOAF Kit Co. kit. This was inspired by a layout my Ashley Horton over at the OA blog.

Another June layout.....

And a final June layout.

 And finally, the July Birds of a Feather Kit Co. kit. Amy created such a fun summer-perfect kit this month!

 Another July BOAF Kit Co. layout. This one's for my BOM album.

Another July layout.....

 And a final July layout. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I promise I will try to be better at blogging. Especially now that I have a new smart phone and have decided to join the world of instagram :)

Have a blessed weekend!
