SCORE!!!! And Cosmo Cricket Layout

First off, I hit a jackpot of a garage sale. I got Maddy 6 pair of pants (mostly jeans), 8 tops, 1 pair of brand new winter boots, 3 shoes (one brand new), 2 pairs o f pj's, 1 pair of tights, 1 pair of mittens and a hat for $20! Oh, and that included a super cute and nice OSU Nike jog suit for my brother's little one. Although I may just try to squeeze the little Miss in! Yep, I LOVE my garage sales! Best way to cloth your child on a budget!

Well, this layout worked for two different challenges. One here and one here. Both challenge required to use mostly Cosmo Cricket. One required stitching. The other required to scrap your scrapbook addiction, use three pieces of patterned paper, a punch and the negative of that punch.
I used the corner rounder punch. The red shapes hold the negative of the punches. I then drew little stitches in as I was too lazy to actually hand stitch all of those. Oh, and before I forget, I got the shape idea off of a template from Ideas for Scrapbookers!
Here is a close up. I matted the patterned paper to give it a little oomph.

I am addicted to Cosmo Cricket! They are such an incredibly company! LOVE LOVE LOVE their products. And on top of that you don't get more fun than Lindsay and Julie (and Eric and the other behind the scenes I haven't met too, I'm sure you all are a hoot). If you haven't checked out their blog you should.

I have been spending more time in the car and/or truck since we moved. I love it when Chris drives and I can interact with the kids more.
Maddy often wants to hold her stuffed animal or baby doll while she has her bottle or bowl of snacks.
And Peyton...well the poor kid gets car sick. So he does all he can to not puke! lol...

What a great layout, Kayla! I love how you are so willing to try different techniques and not me:/ Awesome scores at the garage sale. I wish I would make the effort to get out to them more often, but with four kiddos in tow I think it could get stressful. LOL

OMG, I love garage sales, and I used to love when I hit the jackpot with clothes and toys when the girls were little! It's the BEST! Some of my favorite pieces when they were little came from a garage sale! I LOVE them!!
