Studio Calico So Cal - the reveal

Welcome to summer with the June kit from Studio Calico, So Cal (not that it's summer here.  We got SNOW on our ski hill the other day, lol).  I got Venice Beach, Malibu, and Santa Monica this month. 

This is a really pretty kit and I wish I had spent more time playing with it.  It works great for boy or girl, and has some delicious summer colors.   I really liked the oranges.  

First up is my main kit layout for the month.  I decided to celebrate miss Payton Jayne and her 6th birthday:

I cut the title and the 6 with my Cameo and made it a two pager.  The photos of her and her birthday cake really showed her quirky little personality and I had to use them all.  That fun (aka Sassafras) paper made it come together easily and didn't require much in the way of embellishment, but I had to add one of the exclusive die cuts to add some texture. I cut it and used it on the left side of the layout too.
Suggestion?  MORE SC paper

This next one has a lot of product from Venice Beach, which is add-on 4.  Like bubble stamps?  Want 9 of them?  GET this add-on.  These little stamps were so fun!

#3 for me this month was a layout inspired by a photo I snapped on Easter.  We host a gathering and there were kids hunting eggs at lightning speed all over the place.  I barely captured Morgan racing by and as I looked at the photo, it brought to mind other things to say to her, so I created this layout in order to do that.  It really doesn't have anything to do with Easter.  I love when a photo can do that:

And that was it for me!  I did use the kit for one more layout and you'll see it when the June PageMaps goes live, I'm guessing June 1.  

Have a great night!  Davinie
