Some BG goodness!

Man can you believe it is Thursday already? This week has just literally flown by... I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a list for tomorrows 5 Faves and heck if I can' t think of ANYTHING yet. Ughhhh. Anywhoo...

The July kit for Bad Girls went live the other night and it is divine and sold out I believe. But here are the projects I made with the kit Whimsical Wonderland. I loved the combination of Making Memories Noteworthy and Sassafras Lass papers. Also kudos to my friend Cari for having her very own stamp debut in this kit!

My first layout is Big Seven. I got the kit like 3 days after Zoe's birthday so I just had to do a birthday layout with it. And wouldn't ya know that the papers matched her little dress just perfectly. I trimmed the die cut MM Delaney sheet in half and then used the second half to make a cute little card. I used 2 different MM journaling sheets (How I ADORE their journaling notepads!) and couldn't resist adding some of my fave embellies by Amy Butler. I can't make a layout without using one of those die cut shapes. They match EVERYTHING!

For Love Ya, the design scheme was based around the MM journaling blocks. Zoe wanted to be an active participant in the layout and wanted to do some journaling (which is her favorite part). So we came up with the idea to each journal on the Why I Love You sheet and then had my friend Pam snap a couple of shots while she was here scrapbooking with us.

I love how Sassafras has added the decorative edges on their papers that you can use on your layouts. I hope that they have set the trend for more manufacturers to do the same thing.

Every month Wendy (owner of BG) challenges the DT. This month it was to PILE IT ON. Put as many items from the kit as possible onto your layout. This was a HUUUGE challenge for me because I am pretty much embellishment impaired. But I found that once I started, I couldn't stop. So I apologize for any sudden blindness or seizures that you may incur from looking at my LO. And yes there is a picture in there somewhere amidst all the clutter. Ohhh and there was some adorable fabric in the kit this month that I could use over and over again had I an endless supply!

And last but not least: I made three little cards.
Your New Home uses a Sassafras arrow sticker that I turned into a little house and some fun Doodlebug velvet paper for grass.
Thank You Deer Friend uses the second half of the MM die cut sheet from Big Seven and that cute lil Bambi deer that I really had no idea what to do with LOL.
And Hello uses Cari's stamp (the blue baroque frame) and a Basic Grey rub on, oh and some adorable MM Noteworthy flowers as well. I loooved playing with those!
So if you haven't checked out Bad Girls kits, head on over and take a gander and see what you think. There were 5 addon's this month and with sassy names like Mystic Music, Fleur Fairies and Fuzziwigs Robotic Lab...well there is sure to be something for everyone ;)
ohhh and you MUST stop by the DT gallery and see what the rest of the team did! I was just floored at how amazing the layouts in there are and humbled, oh so humbled.
I hope that Thursday is finding you well and that you are all thinking about a Five Faves Friday list :) I would love to see some more people hop on board!!
