Here is the first page I made. Each summer, I've been making a page about things on my mind, and this is big-time on my mind this summer:
That's the house we're buying. It hasn't been built yet, so I grabbed a photo from the website. My journaling on the back reads:
Summer 2011 will go down in history as the summer I spent getting ready for our new house. Decluttering. HOW do two people accumulate so much junk in two decades? Cleaning. Moving things that haven't been moved in eons reveals gigantic dust bunnies (dust elephants?). Dumping. Yeah, the guys at the dump now know Farzad on a first-name basis. Packing. Thank goodness for all those McDonald's French fry boxes. Storing. Our attempt at making our little house seem roomier. Improving. Putting more floors in, redoing the walkway, planting, mulching, overall making our house shine and sparkle. Dreaming. Yes, all this hard work will be worth it when we finally get to move into our dream house.
Here are some details. Love the butterflies that came in the project kit. I used a flower from my stash.
The little typewriter and clock images came from a Pink Paislee paper in the kit. I thought they were perfect for this page. I roughed them up with my Zutter Distrezz-It-All.
Love these calendar tickets. I had used the August one on another page, darn-it! I trimmed the cut-off strip from a paper that said "coordinating pattern on back" and used it to indicate that I had hidden journaling. Love those Lily Bee letter stickers. They're small and perfect for adding subtitles.
The July kit is still avilable. The papers and embellishments in this kit are perfect for summer but are also so versatile. If you've been wanting some of the new Lily Bee stuff, this is the kit for you!
Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
