Do it for Me Layout {Scrap That June Kit}






This is the last of the layouts made using
 my June ScrapThat! kit and add-ons.


I kept it pretty simple with a nice photo of my 2 youngest kids.


I used a very old 7 Gypsies tag as I still have a bunch 
of them from years ago but they are really nice! 


 Aside from the kit I also used some Webster's Pages
 vintage inspired netting as well as a Cheery Lynne
 flourish die-cut for the brown vines.


I cut down the lace which originally was about 4 times as wide.


Fussy-cutting and flowers - yummy yum yums...


More yummies...


Lots of layering up...


The title and journaling is a message to my kids to stay friends
when they are adults.  To make the effort necessary not to lose
contact or allow silly misunderstandings to escalate to the all
 too common situation in so many families -major fallout...


The envelope is a Prima wooden embellishment 
- loving those right now too...
