June's design team layouts...

This month's kit was just awesome. So boyish and and I loved the colours from Paper Loft's Dude collection. I used lots of twine, distressing and ink to really 'grunge' it up. There was so much to use in this month's kit I'm sure I'll be creating with it again.
I really don't have a lot of pictures of my boys together. They are often running in opposite directions so it's hard to get them in one shot. This is a pic of them goofing around at the cottage last year.
I added the knotted twine but otherwise everything was from the kit.

There were lots of gears in this month's kit so I decided to cut them out and use them as a backdrop for this pic of Wyatt. I put each brad through loosely and then ran the floss from each one and then smooshed the brad down to hold it in place.When I saw the 'What a dork!' title I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use.

For this layout I used a sketch from an old issue of Creating Keepsakes to get started. I really liked the blocked look. I added the rub on and mini letter stickers. The gears were in the kit and I used vintage photo ink on them.

Instead of making a card this month I decided to complete a project I've been meaning to get to for awhile. I bought these heavy duty chipboard letters from a bargain store in the US. I already have Wyatt's completed but was waiting for the right paper to finish Holden's. Well the green in this line is the perfect match to the walls in his bedroom so I went for it. I used the digger stickpin I made for last week's Friendzy Friday (so not planned!) and added some more twine. I can't wait to get it hung up on his door!

Tip: Glossy Accents (my go to product for everything lately!) was perfect for sticking the twine in place. I just love G.A.!!! Seriously, I should be a paid endorser for it!

I had a great time working with this month's kit especially since I got to create while at the cottage gazing out at the lake!
