Citrus Tree Studio May Reveal!

I really look forward to CTS kit reveals and I think this May kit - "Delightful Things" is so fun and is definitely one of my favorite kits so far this year!! :) It's filled with Jillibean Soup pp, stickers, corrugated alphas, trims...and Jenni Bowlin vintage buttons. Totally adorable stuff!

The first thing I did with my May kit was make this little wall hanging, using a 6x6" canvas. I covered it w/MM paint, added some cut out birdhouses and Jillibean Soup coordinating stickers to say "welcome friends". Then I covered the entire piece with Tim Holtz crackle paint. {I can't help it...I love the look of a crackle paint finish!} Buttons needed to go on top of the birdhouses. To finish the edges, I covered them w/a black grosgrain ribbon, the exact width of the canvas. It's hanging in my foyer and I love it! :)

My first lo is of my grand niece, Kimberly - "congrats, big girl". Her grandma took these photos and sent them to me via email. I think this piece of Jenni Bowlin "kindergarten" cs works perfectly with this lo. Using a pencil, I wrote "Kimberly graduates. 3 year pre-school. June 2009." on each line of the cs. I really like how the personalized background turned out. :) The coredinations cs in the kit includes this light blue flower cs. If lightly sanded (kit includes sand paper too!), this cute little flower is revealed.

This next lo is my grand niece, Lilyanna and my nephew, Anthony - "play". (Thank heaven for nieces and nephews...or I would never have any cute photos!) ;) They were playing in the bird bath (my MIL had just gotten it was clean!). It was a no-brainer to use this birdhouse Jillibean Soup pp. And, honestly...I adore this wicked cute pp!!! I love that you can cut it up or use a strip or a block. :)

I even ordered an extra "Delightful Things" kit!! LOL! Citrus Tree Studio has a second May kit available - filled with gcd studios "Artsy Urban" pp & embellies. The new gcd studios stuff is so beautiful & this kit comes with a little s*e*i 4x6" album to alter - looks like so much fun!!

Thanks for coming by for my kit reveal. :)
