Here's the layout I created. My hidden journaling talks about how I was feeling wistful looking at this picture of my nephew and me because they were planning to move away from the country, and I'd miss the toads hunting tradition, but that I was excited because we were planning to move to the same neighborhood, so we'd have opportunities to make lots of new memories. [Alas, my sister has decided to stay put, so this layout is a moot point, lol.]
This layout was made completely with the WIP May kit, with the exception of the buttons and the "Confidential" rub-on. The papers and other elements are new Pink Paislee/Collage Press Hometown Sumer and BasicGrey Life of the Party (the woodgrain paper). LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the woodgrain paper!
The little house accent was cut from a patterned paper. The tape measure paper is by BasicGrey and came on a sheet that had rows and rows of them. The "Hometown Summer" is from a tear strip on one of the papers. I always scrutinize those tear strips because they often have phrases I can use on my layouts.
I thought it would be fun to add a sticker to the die-cut sun.
The next picture shows two of my favorite parts of the kit. I love that number paper, and the fun E card is actually cut from a patterned paper that had a whole sheet of letters with different words, alternated with fun images of kids engaged in summery activities. There's another one of those fun layered chipboard pieces. I like that they're kind of glossy.
