June Project 12

Good morning! I finished this layout yesterday and couldn't wait to share it with you! It is my June Project 12 layout!

I instantly fell in love with June's sketch! We had such a busy month it was hard to narrow down the photos. The sketch had 5 photos, but I snuck in an extra one! I was having a hard time getting a good photo. Thanks Karen for helping me get the colors adjusted! The papers and chipboard are Cosmo Cricket and the stickers are Echo Park!
A close up of the left side. We had Adam and Adina's wedding, the Round Up Cattle Drive and Parade and the Carnival and Rodeo all within two weeks!
Now the right side. Peyton raced his stick horse at the rodeo. Peyton had two days a week. We finished off the month with my cousins yearly week long visit! I struggled with how to do the journaling. In the end, I decided to cut strips and outline them, adhering them to each photo. I wanted to make sure and note that Peyton also graduated preschool (which my pictures from it came out HORRIBLE) and that we spent the week at my moms house when my cousin was here. So I added a few extra strips and matted them on the dark brown cardstock to tie in with the dark brown title. Now for some close ups! This layout was pretty time consuming. But in the end I'm very happy with the results. I did some stitching on the patterned papers. I love how stitching looks on layouts and wish I did it more often. I also did some paper curling. I bought a quilling tool and it made the curling so much easier! The bracket shape I found on-line and printed off in the size I wanted. I then traced it onto a piece of cardstock and the photo and cut them out. I just noticed that I didn't put the year on there. I will do so in Tiny Type stickers below the picture of Peyton at gymnastics.
The cloud sticker was too big so I cut part of it off and then layered it.

We had a busy and fun weekend! Friday morning Peyton went in for his first ever dentist appointment! The dentist said it was a picture perfect appointment! He did a great job and it was a great experience. Thankfully my mom came and took Maddy out for me as she was being a handful. We then took off garage saling.
My mom took the kids home with her as Chris and I had a customer appreciation concert to go to Friday and Saturday night. Thank goodness for family some-what close by! I am so lucky to have 2 sets of grandparents and one set of great grandparents that my kids LOVE to go visit and stay with! The kids spent one night with my parents and one night with Chris's parents. Saturday night we saw the Dirt Drifters. I was able to go backstage and meet them too! The radio station was taking pictures and hopefully I'll be able to get the one of Chris and me with them. I really like them and they were very friendly.
We had a lot of fun both nights but Saturday was the best! I actually got a picture of us together! :-0 Shocking...I know! ;-)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll come back soon!
