Scrapdango June Reveal

These were  made with the Scrapdango June Sugar kit.  I really liked this paper.  It was perfect for the fun summer layout of my DD playing in the rain.
 My youngest is in the Children's Choir at church and sang 2 songs on Easter morning. One of them was "Celebrate Jesus" and these wonderful and colorful papers helped me make a layout which did that.
One of my daughter's friends attends church with us and has become like another child.  She graduated from high school this week.  She has always admired my scrapping things so I made her a little mini album to fill in with her high school memories. I used this tutorial:

In the album, I wrote a note to her and had my daughter write a note as well.  I also included a gift card to one of her favorite stores.

June Sketch

I challenged myself this month.  I love the look of circles, but I find it a challenge to use them and make them look good.  I tried it this month with the sketch.
 Here is the result:
The journaling says: Ace's little pink fuzzy paws are very sensative.  She will kick if I touch them.  If I do not stop, she will move them out of reach.  If I reach for her again, she may try to bite.  I know I shouldn't tease her, but it is so much fun.
