June DT Layouts

My first assignment for K&P was to use their gorgeous "High Tea" kit for June.


And this is what I came up with:


Loved using Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's new line of stamps to make the title. I did the whole thing using the "love" stamp, just cut it apart to make an I and U. 



This is probably one of my very favorite photos of my mom and me. She wasn't much older than I am now and I just love the auburn color of her hair and how fresh she looks. It's really a pretty weird paradox. At what point did I cease to be that little baby on her back and grow into a separate individual, not only her child but also her friend? It is so weird how we raise our children and for 20 years or so there seems to be this unbreachable age gap, and then eventually that gap seems to lessen until you are equals. Both people with thoughts and feelings and opinions, and then it is possible for this person who raised you to become your closest friend. I guess its when you grow out of that intrinsically self-centeredness that is childhood. Oh, who am I kidding? When you're a child you think the world revolves around you, and when you are an adult the world still revolves around you, your kids just live in it. You never really grow out of that.



One more layout using this kit. Since Father's Day is coming up I wanted to do a page featuring some of the great fathers in my life. Click the photo to see it larger and read the quote in the middle, its perfect for this.

I still have a ton of stuff from this kit, so I think I'll make some cards next.
