More February Studio Calico to share...

The new March kits from Studio Calico are starting to ship. Mine should arrive early next week. Yay! That reminds me that I have a couple layouts using the February kit that I still haven't shared yet.

The first layout, "Any time is Chili time" documents Tom's love for chili. He ordered it in July on our summer vacation! Not sure if you can tell, but that is a stamp under the hexagons. (Yes, I stamped again!) Then I cut the pattern out of a sheet of paper and added individual hexagons with pop dots. (I need to start purchasing those things in bulk!)
I really liked the simplicity of this page. The sun/clouds were hand-cut from a sheet of patterned paper.

The Licorice Twist add-on this month worked well with these hard to match photos. Our old bedspread has given me fits when I've tried to match it with other paper.
I used the Bo Bunny fabric flowers from the kit, but unwound one to use as a border near the bottom of the page. It wasn't that lop-sided when I first adhered it. Oops! It must have moved a bit before I photographed the page.
Sometimes layouts like this make me sad because they remind me of how much my boys have grown. And how fast!

Hope everyone has a great Friday. I'm looking forward to the weekend!
