OPAAT July Kit!!!

First up is a layout of Jane and I together. I absolutely adore this photo and I've been saving it for this kit. Very pleased with what I have done with the felt. This is my first time cutting up felt and using it on a layout. So these flowers are just freehand cut...very simple with a variety of stitching on it. LOL...I am not a very neat seamstress...very inexperienced. DH does a better job sewing a button on that me....lol...I'd be too tempted just to use a glue dot...on a layout that's ok...but on actual clothing...lol
Patrick is Jeromel's red dog. My sister bought it for him when he was still a baby. Patrick is a very popular and quite famous dog in asia...but unheard of here. He's not a character on tv or anything...just a floppy dog with padding in his body and some beans in his feet. He's been Jeromel's sleeping buddy for a very long time now and usually never leaves the house. Jeromel brought him along for the ride to Box Hill to the Japanese Cultural festival. His first time performing on stage....not sure if it was nerves ...but Patrick came along for the ride just for a bit of cuddly support. On the way back, I heard Jeromel chattering to Patrick showing him the sights and I turned back (DH was driving...lol)...and managed to capture some cute photos.How cute is this card??? Made this for my mother in law for her birthday on the 16th June. She loved the card very much. Look at the huge chunky polkadot ricrac!! Look at my layered button flower! How cute is it? And on this card, you can see the lovely textured cardstock. I need a new 'Happy Birthday' stamp...this one is a bit small and not funky enough!

Ok, I will leave you with my favourite OPAAT layout of the month. I was doing this layout and decided to colour in and then decided to go with the flow and do more doodling and doodle a title....and then hand doodled the border as well. I felt like I had become one with Miss Elsie F herself when I was doodling away. Photos were taken at the Japanese Cultural Festival and it is a Japanese 'lucky dip' with these very cute colourful balloons. They are very thick rubber balloons and they put just a bit of water in them and then they are secured with a clip and has a long elastic band. So it's sort of like a yoyo....except you just bounce them. The 'lucky dip' part has all the balloons floating in some water and each child gets something like a small hook and you have to 'fish' for a balloon by hooking it on the rubber band loop. Lots of fun!
Now....if you are still drooling.....click here and get yourself a kit!!!
