Yes! | Scrapbook Circle

Hello! Just dropping by today to share another layout I made using Scrapbook Circle's June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today. I also have the List Keeper add-on kit this month on this page. 

This kit definitely has a travel-feel to it, but I also think it goes well with adventure themes in general. So many of the things we document for our kids are their adventures. They "take flight" in so many other ways besides for an actual airplane or road trip.

I wanted to use this kit to show the boy's current milestones and challenges. For my boy right now, it's learning to skateboard. This is his moment — his adventure. 

Don't let the themes in your kit clubs or on your papers deter you from using the products. Airplanes can mean so much else. Life is an adventure — it's time to spread your wings and try something new.

Thanks for visiting here today to see my layout!

Don't forget to stop by this past Monday's post for the Cut Shoppe/Scrapbook Circle hop.

Cut Shoppe Hop | Scrapbook Circle

Scrapbook Circle is hopping along with Cut Shoppe this week! We will be sharing great ways to use the Cut Shoppe unique and fun files along with your Scrapbook Circle kits. 

You should have come to me from Jamie's blog. If you aren't hopping along yet, you can start at the beginning on the Scrapbook Circle blog

For my page, I used the Say What cut file from Cut Shoppe and the June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today.

I used a black Silhouette sketch pen and my Cameo along with the cut file to create a doodle-like background page. I liked how the black and white doodles make the photo and papers really stand out in the center of the layout.

Your next stop on the hop is Tessa. Make sure to stop at all of the blogs on the hop for chances at prizes and of course for the inspiration. 

Then Cut Shoppe is also offering a 30% off special for those of you hopping along. Swing by the shop and pick up a few files for yourself.  

Thanks for hopping along this week!

June sketch challenge | Scrapbook Circle

Time for a new sketch challenge for Scrapbook Circle! You can see the details about playing along on the Scrapbook Circle blog, as well as pages from some of the other gals on the creative team.

Here is the page I made using the June Kit: Have a Little Fun Today. I also have the List Keeper add-on kit this month on this page. 

For some unexplainable reason, the boy took an interest in skateboarding. He is really bad on his roller blades. Seriously … really bad! Of course, I was hesitant to let him try, but he is athletic in so many other ways that I hoped he'd be able to handle it. And he did!

This kid is a natural! Earlier this week I went for a 1.5 mile run and he skated beside me the whole time without falling or going off the road. 

This month's kit at Scrapbook Circle made it so easy to document this moment. I love the bright colors, the word-pattern papers and the stars. I always gravitate to stars for the boy's pages. 

The Amy Tan Grace foam letters are perfect for this page, too!

Thanks for stopping here to see my layout. Scoot on over to the SC blog to play along with the sketch this month.
