Sharing Some Layouts...

I have been a little busy scrapbooking! Yay!

It is so nice to get back into the swing of things.

All these pages were done using the Homegrown Scrapbooks Summer Survival Kit.

So, here are some of my creations:

Kaili and Jet at their end of year recital. Aren't they cute as Jack and Jill?

My husband doing some rock climbing!

The twins playing in the pool.

One word: Geronimooooooooo!

Kaili and Jet making a Longaberger basket!

That is it for now. I will post a mini album I did of Kaili's Ballet Recital in a few days.

I just need to do one more page.

Have a great weekend!

Homegrown Scrapbooks New Kit for Fall Survival!

Just when I think that Stephanie cannot top herself, she does.

There is a lot of yummy goodness in this kit. And the Add-ons are to die for.

I think I bought every bit of it. Shhhh! Don't Tell my husband. LOL

If you do not know, over a year ago, Homegrown Scrapbooks came up with a new way to do a kit.

The kit is done every 3 months. There is a Spring, Summer , Fall and Winter Survival kit. It is jammed packed with paper, alphabets and embellishments.

When you purchase the kit, you are enrolled in a 6 week program. Each week you download a pdf that is jam packed with layouts and techniques. Each one of them has step by step instructions on how to create it AND the sketches for the layout. All you have to do is play along.

You also receive a binder to put each lesson in. By the end you have a binder filled with sketches and ideas. It ends up being a huge idea book.

There are also challenges and prizes given out at the end of each program. I love it!! You should check it out. It is definitely not your ordinary kit club!!! And you will not regret it!

Here are the pictures of the kits and the add-ons. I will post the layouts and mini album I have completed using the Summer Survival Kit this week.
