postal pizza :)

i know i'm not alone in just loving getting those pizza boxes in the post...so after a hugely long abstainence...i've subscribed to a new kit club...its called the Scarlet Lime...and i had soooo much fun with this first month's kit. The papers are great and i love all the little bits, like the black mesh, the cute badges, and the pre-stamped tag, not to mention the fabulous cordroy-like alphabet!

This is the first LO i created, all about how i used to be an *outdoors/healthy type person*, i.e. life before ME...

Its pretty much made from the kit, i just added a little of ribbon, some spotty die cut foam arrows, the red label holder, the chipboard flower, the eyelets...and made my own *peak* out of cardstock. It sounds like loads now i write it all down...but it didn't feel like much at the time!!

I'm betting you'd all like a hat like that, huh? lol

My second LO is not a great photo, but its of a really important occassion, and i really think these photos are crucial to be scrapped. Its us with my sister and her hubby {aka our bestest buddies} at the family meal to celebrate our engagement. Its rare to get a photo of the 4 of us, as usually several of us are behind camera lenses...so i thought i'd use it to record, not just how grateful i am to have Dave, but also to have these guys too. :)

Again its almost all from the kit, but i added a chipboard circle {covered with the kit pp} and a couple of Prima flowers, cut a heart shape from more of the spotty foam that i'm loving atm, and used my Notch tool to cut a scalloped border. I really like the effect of the textured letters on the same coloured pp...its quite subtle for me, eh? ;)

Being as we're so broke now, after the wedding and all, i'm really hoping this kit will turn out to be a good investment...and who knows...maybe i'll love it as much as i used to the Trinkets, Trash and Treasure kits...oh how i miss your wonderful kits Tamara...an explosion of inspiration and enthusiasm in every box!!
