So proud... LGC Blog Party Day 2

Hey there. Thanks for joining us for our second day of celebrating the latest Lucky Girl Crafts kit, "Kid at Heart." If you're new to the party, check out the post above for details. And be sure to visit the rest of the Lucky Girls - you might get Lucky too!

Today's project brings out the bright, fun patterns to light with the Bo Bunny papers and some of my fave little embellies included in the kit.

Like any mom, I think my kiddos are the best. But sometimes, it's hard not to be super, over the moon, wildly, amazingly proud. This summer, my son and I went on a bike ride with my book club friends. What I thought was going to be a quick trip to the next town over (somehow, I forgot that this town is 12-1/2 miles away) was sooo long, and sooo hot. Uphill there, and we hit the headwind home, there were times when I wanted to quit. Seriously, I was about to call my husband to pick me up. But my son, Andrew? Nope. Not really. Sure, he wasn't thrilled the first mile, but after that - all I could say was WOW! Anyhow, I digress. (But thanks for letting me gloat about my awesome son!)

Check out what I created:

To frame the picture of my awesome son and Mt. Sopris in the background, I used the bright and fanciful colors of the Bo Bunny Block Party papers.

I fussy cut around some of the flourishes, and added a little Mod Podge Dimensional Glaze and scissor distressing to the largest designs. I traced the white, glittered Thickers, and traced my journaling around the core elements of the layout.

Finally, if you stuck with me through my proud parent/proud scrapper moment, who wants to get Lucky?

What a pretty LO--love those big circles!

As for my fav past time--I enjoyed growing up on a dirt road and in the middle of nowhere. I also love living in a small town (about 250) and going to school in a big town (around 3000). LOVE IT!
