TSF August DT Reveal

ok... so I know it has been a while since I posted but I have had just a crazy life happening recently... So on to my August Two Scrapbook Friends DT Reveal...

I have to say... I just loved this kit to bits... It just screamed out to me to create the following items and I have to say... each of the layouts below I am so happy with the layouts and they only took me one hour each to make... this is a pure happy record for me since I am usually spend an average of 4 hours on a layout... I think it all comes down to just all the creative juices flowing since I love the kit so much!

My altered project for the month is this little Lemonade Stand Card Gift Set...

I created the cards with my Cricut Machine  Here is a close up of the cards and gift box...

My First Layout was created with pictures of my Niece and 2 Nephews eating Watermellon at my parents place... Are they just not too cute or what!

Oh so Very Juicy

Here is my oldest Nephew and my Mom Jumping into the pool!  They always have a blast together!

Just Jump In

Here is a pic of my Mom at Marineland with My Niece and Nephew!
