LO 1 - July Kit

Hi there!!
I am participating over at May Flaum's 
and this is my first LO in class.
It is a take on Ashli Oliver's
grid design.
I love her designs SO much!  
Her style is amazing!

I took this in a little different way and used
circles for my grid instead of squares.
I love the result,
and I used my CKC July Kit.
Win! Win! 

Yes this paper is a very old MME,
that I have wanted to use for a long time.

Punched lots of circles from those
left over scraps 
and sewed through elements onto them.
I love the globe and the little heart 
on it is as close to Yellowstone
as I could get =)

Me at Tower Creek.
(Yes it is a creek =) )
Yes it is half my face,
and for some reason 
this pic is a fav of mine.
Not sure why.
Usually I am a smiler =)

Here she is all dolled up for IG.
This is my fourth LO
using my CKC July Kit,
and it is only the 2nd!

More LO's to come.

  1. That is a great photograph. The reflection of the creek and your half face make it interesting -- much more interesting than a centered portrait - I like it a lot too. I love your paper choices as well. MME is a favorite of mine. Great layout.

  2. Dawn! This is most fabulous!!! LOVE it!

  3. This looks great! I like how you used the circles & included the globe as one section!

  4. I really like that photo too - it really drew my attention. The circle grid is very pretty too and I like the way you broke it up a little with the globe.

  5. Pretty layout, lone the circle grid.

  6. Nice take on the grid with circles!

  7. Really fab - that photo placement is great, and your embellishments right on point.

  8. Ugh - lost my comment. Let's see if I can remember it all...
    Love the photo - you look like Ali McGraw.
    Can def see the Ashli influence in the looser more whimsical look of your page.
    She is a fave of mine & you have captured her vibe while making it your own.
    SO GLAD you are here this month! xo
