I LOVE this kit. I love them all, but I was so ready to play with these colors and fabulous papers, and perfect embellishments! I still have a few more projects I want to do too, but for now, this is what I came up with.


Remember Layout (Based on the monthly sketch.)


So, this is our sketch this month:

And this is my take on it:


 I cut off the sprockets of the die cut paper and stuffed them in between my top and middle large layer. I used that same die cut paper to cut out a circle. I added a smaller circle, added some more layers to mat the pic, and stuck part of a film strip sticker in between. The chicken wire was colored with the precious metal paint from the mediums add on. The flowers are from the flower add on. I also use the Tim Holtz stencil from the embellishment add on. I finished off the layout with the copper Liquid Pearls around the circle. 

Here's a close up:
