Does anyone ever find themselves stopping several times to look at a fave layout after its completed??  Well, I did that with the next three!  Seriously, I had them all lined up and would do a detour into the room just to look at them.  Ha!  I have some issues :-).

When I recieved my June kit from Citrus Twist I knew immediately that it had claimed the number one spot on my all-time favorite kit list (*note:  this is a mental list, not a list that is written down somewhere-I am not that crazy.....maybe!)  The combination of papers, embellies, and gold Thickers had me instantly smitten! 

So here are the three layouts I obsessed over ....

Sweet Allora.  Sweet Allora was almost a disaster when I went to apply ink droplets--when I flicked the dropper, the little rubber thingy fell off and landed, thankfully, on the piece of cardstock I had covering my picture--thank you scrapbooking gods.....

Adhering sequins to the balloons was the best decision ever!  Love the effect.

Poppy.  Simple design and doodles.  Very scary to draw on a layout, but I lowered the anxiety by using my clear quilting ruler--why had I not thought of this before???   The ruler is see through and has all sorts of lines to keep me only if I can straigten out my sewing lines.....

Close up of doodling.......

Joy was made using mostly the kit add-on, as well as a sketch from Citrus Twist.  Am absolutely over the moon about the background doily-cloud paper from Crate Paper.  So pretty.  Butterflies and doilies---I still love them and hope they continue to show up in products.  I myself consider them more of a staple as opposed to a trend. 

Tied a bow for the tag out of a piece of thread. 

Wishing everyone a great week!
