Melanie's Monday post...with a new kit!!!

It's time for a new kit at BlueMoon. This kit is a little different from the kits I have received in the past. It's definitely more manly in color and embellishments (that don't mean it's just for men though!). There's some cool feathers, a fun looking alphabet, lots of cool papers from Graphic 45. A great blue and brown color combo! 

The first layout is called:

It seems like I mostly scrapbook my children, but my husband needs to have a page once in a while too! This hobby is about memories right!

you guessed it...poem time! I used the tiny type letters by Cosmo Cricket. Poems are a great way to fill up empty space.

The paper tape measure was cut out from the A Proper Gentleman Graphic 45 paper, they are lots of fun  elements like the story tickets included in the kit. I made little patches because I wanted to incorporate some plaid into the layout because it matched my husbands shirt.

Did you catch the hand-stitching? Bazzill has these really cool products called Bazzill in Stitch'z Floss and Needles. The thread colors are in blue's and browns. Absolutely a perfect compliment to this kit!

The K & Company letters are fun. I cut them out and after gluing them down I felt they needed just a little bit of extra I applied a layer of Glossy Accents to the top of them, now they're shiny and have a little more dimension.

Here's a picture of the new kit, it just went up for sale yesterday! For more info on the kit, please visit the BlueMoon store!

***Don't forget about our birds and butterfly challenge this month! The BlueMoon Gallery is looking great!

Have a wonderful day!
