CT Musings

Creating Scrapbook pages is one of my favorite hobbies of late and being unemployed right now I have a lot of time to devote to it. While going through photos this morning I have been reflecting on how lucky I am to be involved with Deco-Pages creative team. I get to see so much talent in the designers and use their products. As a CT Member, I choose one kit from two designers each month. My choice of kit, whatever inspires me. Then I get to play with the kit and create pages with it... How cool is that... So this month I chose a cute little summery kit by Jennifer Rassi called Sunflower Delight. I love the fact that it has patterned backgrounds as well as plain and the little sunflower stickers and buttons are adorable. So, check out what I did today.....

Bugs of Summer ~ I had some photos of a few bugs that I had in my yard last year that I really wanted to scrap with. I was really fascinated by the spider that had made a home in my Yew bush last year... I couldn't believe how deep his web was into the bush. It was pretty cool to watch him in it. I had a few wonderful butterflies that I have never been able to find the name for...the blue against the black is so beautiful. I have searched the web on every site that I could find that identifies butterflies and have yet to find the name for this one. It is gorgeous. I couldn't resist throwing in the bee on one of my sunflowers.....being allergic to them, I admire them from a distance but they never cease to amaze me...

Puppy Love ~ Was created with Jennifer's Sunflower Delight Kit as well. I took this picture of my sister giving her St. Bernard puppy a kiss. It was such a fun picture and I love how it turned out with this kit. You can find Jennifer's Sunflower Delight Kit in her store at Deco Pages.
