Summer with PersonalScrapper.com

Usually when my PersonalScrapper kit arrives, I can't wait to scrap with it. But, when my June kit arrived earlier this month, I didn't feel like diving right in to it. PS is taking a break this summer, so I knew this kit would be the last until September...But, I do love it. The Fancy Pants "Rusted Sun" line is one of my favorite Fancy Pants releases ever. I am in love with the color scheme.

Well, I am proud to say I finally scrapped with my kit. Some of it. And I have finished five layouts with it so far. All of my layouts use photos from a single outing to a local lake two summers ago. The boys and I went to the lake for a picnic after Vacation Bible School. It was a fun afternoon and I was a bit too thrilled with the photos when I ordered them. I had several 5x7 enlargements!

I think the Rusted Sun line matched them perfectly!

I made a 2-pager of the actual picnic (McDonald's happy meals!) and skipping rocks:My new favorite layout - "it's all in the details" - has a lot of journaling. I had two sheets of this patterned paper and cut the flowers out of one of them to layer with. I also added lots of bling.
The 5x7s weren't always easy to work with... (Kevin reminds me of Forest Gump in that first photo!)
Another simple layout...I distressed the edges of the photos on this one.
The design for "duck, duck...Goose!" was inspired by a layout on the Jillibean Soup blog by Kim Moreno. I have plenty of product leftover in my kit and hope to create more with it soon!
