Today I wanted to share a few of my creations with the May "The Story I Heard" kit, add on kit, and stamp set. I really love the lighter colors of this kit because I am pretty bad about taking dark photos and I am always looking for ways to lighten up my pages. This is just a fun fresh kit to play with.
For my first layout, I chose to use a large photo of my crazy family
as we arrived at our resort one year at Disney World. Since it is
Caribbean Beach Resort, I chose to cut some palm fronds from cardstock

"enjoy this moment" so I stamped over and over in places on the
background as a bit of a design element.

second layout I have three fairly large photos. I wanted room to
embellish a little and still journal, so the journaling is hidden on a
tag behind the photo. The thing that amazed me by the tiny town wasn't
the houses or train, it was the little trees, shrubs, and even flowers. I
thought it was so cool that I made a tiny banner in the lower left to
go with the scale of my tiny town photos.

embellishments, and stamps, I created 2 cards and envelopes. Don't
forget to decorate the envelope a little bit, too.
Here is a closer look at the card with the stamping. I just stamped
the phone and dial onto cardstock, but for the greeting, I stamped onto a
piece of the acetate that the cardstock stickers came on, using black
