Playing with The Paper Bakery Kits

Hello everyone! Seems like I haven't posted a "free" project for a while now! 

I just got back this weekend from being away from home for TWO WEEKS! I had a blast doing all sorts of stuff (I have a LOT of photos to scrap now!), but it's always good to be home. :) Anyway, when I got home, I had 5 boxes of scrappy mail waiting on me. 5! It was like Christmas. :) My scrapbook room is a little fuller now! One of the boxes had my PBK July kit. I ordered the Capture 365 kit to use on my Project Life, but I was sent the scrapbook kit. Oops! I emailed Sarah and got that fixed, but she said I got to keep the scrapbook kit! Yippee! It is such an AWESOME kit that I couldn't wait to dig in. And what better way than to use the kit on the Paper Bakery sketch challenge, right?? I loved the sketch and it fit perfect for scrapping a few of the many photos I have now!

I was going to title this layout "Olive Garden" ('cause that's where we went to eat... and where these photos were taken), but the acrylic letters that came in the kit were too big. Plus, I kinda liked the title that was already printed on the Simple Stories background paper! No, it wasn't the title I was thinking of, but I'm horrible at titles anyway. ;P It's kinda fun doing something different! I'm ok with changing my mind! 

Oh! And I used a lot of new stamps on this layout! I loved the exclusive stamp that came in the Boardwalk kit. Even though the anchor didn't quite fit my photos, I used it anyway. It was too cute to not use! I also used some of the Allison Kreft/ Webster's Pages stamps that I just bought from Two Peas. I have a feeling I will be using these a lot in the near future. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Heather, your scrappy work just gets better and better. Love this LO and glad you four had so much fun. Olive Garden can get a bit pricey though. I don't recognize the blonde in the picture with you. Who is she? You can just email me if you'd like.
