And finally, here are my 3 LOs made using the main kit and the add-on.

This first one turned out better than I thought considering that the photos were taken using only my iTouch. "Storm" from Kopi Tiam is Bianca's favorite cold dessert and is what she usually asks for when she earns a treat for herself. And she won't even share it with anyone, not even me, as she can finish the whole thing all by herself!

Title: Sweet Summer
Journaling: Bianca & her favorite "Storm" from Kopi Tiam. Summer 2011

This next LO uses photos taken from our last trip to Boracay. To do the butterflies, I stamped with Versamark on a 3M transparency that can be heat embossed, and embossed with black embossing powder. Then I stained the back with alcohol ink and cut them out. I also layered 3 different sizes of the white Prima flowers, inked them while layered and then scrunched each layer for some dimension.

Title: Beach Day
Journaling: Boracay. is. our. favorite. beach. ever. 

This next LO again uses a photo from Boracay in 2009. This was the day before we were scheduled to leave and the kids had gotten really tanned after 3 days under the sun! This LO was a lot of fun to put together and I love how the kit had the exact colors I needed to match the photo.

Title: Happy Memories

So hurry and get your own August kit before it rans out at Burlap & Buttercups!
