My Minds EyePortabello Road Scrapbook Daisies November 2010 Kit

I went a little crazy with this month's kit! lol I made so many projects from this one kit and I love what I have now. The paper is so beautiful and the layouts come out just gorgeous!  Check out the kit details here: Scrapbook Daisies November Kits

Here is my first layout. I think this is actually the last one I made. This is a close up of Wes when he was tiny. This is for the color challenge. My color pop is the trim. My title is from my stash (a really old MME title). I also got a package of the matching brads and pearls from Scrapbook Daisies to add to my projects. The zig zag piece on the left of the photo is cut from the packaging of the trims.

My next project is This layout of Wade. It says, "You are so fun to hang out with. You are happy and funny and love all things boy! You love legos, trios, your cars, and climbing. You love your cartoons too. I'm just glad I get to home with you all the time!" I've added the velvet Thickers from my stash. The flowers and brads are from that package I bought. This is based on a Julie Bonner sketch too.

I couldn't resist using the tear strip from the papers with the paper line name on it with these photos. How perfect is it that it says Lost and Found! lol The silver chipboard is an older piece of Pink Paislee chipboard covered with stickles. The title is an old MME rub-on rubbed on to a piece of the packaging from the "Cute" banner that comes in the kit. This one is based on a sketch from the MME blog.
My Little Prince

This line is so perfect for little boys, but I wanted to try to use it for something slightly different. Here is a baseball layout for Weston. The banner says "My Catcher." I was inspired by Michele's cut out banner and decided to cut mine out too! (Thanks for the inspiration Michelle!) Everything is inked with creamy brown chalk ink to pull in that baseball dirt color! This is based on a sketch over at The Scrappiest.
My Catcher

Aren't little kids so tech savvy now? Here is Wade with my iPhone! He knows how to find his games and play them. It keeps him happy for a moment in time and I can get something done! This is the first layout I made with the kit and it got me on a roll! I added the PP chipboard cloud shape and the JilliBean Soup corrugated alphas from my stash. I sprayed the letters with a mist and I love how it gets trapped in the valleys of the letters.
iPhone Photo-Op

This layout is based on Creative Scrappers sketch #127 I love that premade banner that comes in the kit. It is so fun and adds so much to any layout! I punched those little circles to make my larger circle scalloped. That was a pain! But I love the results. I added the pearls, the tag, the rub-on, and the Melissa Fances glittered hearts from my stash
I Adore You

And lastly, my card. I made this for my cousin that just had a baby. Her shower was on Saturday and after I gave her the card, I took it back so I could take a picture of it to share with you! I have to give it back to her now! lol This is loosely based on a card that Martha has on display at her store. I scrapped there on Friday while I was working on my kit and lifted that display card.

Whew! That was long! Lots to work with in this kit! I love it. I hope you love yours too!  Have you made any projects with MME Lost and Found papers?  I would love a link to see them or your latest projects!
