Citrus Twist DT | Project Life May 2016

Hello everyone!

I'm here today to show you another Project life page I made with my Citrus Twist Kits Project Life May 2016 kit! :)

The May kits colors are right up my alley!!! Look at this: yellow, pink, aqua and a lime green. It fits right with my life. :)

The 6x6 paper pad is from Page Evans' Fancy Free collection.  Yummy colors. Really!!! I used that circle to write my journaling in. Added an enamel sticker, a flair and 2 little enamel x.

I like to add cards that I receive in my Project Life album. This here that you see is the enveloppe. I like how my daughter's teacher calls me Mrs T. when my name would really be Mrs C. lol But I find it funny that Mrs T makes me feel like a teacher. :) The little card is right behind the enveloppe. I let it peak a little up there. I added a small die cut to add a little detail about the card and attached all of this together with a paperclip (found at Target! Not included in the kit)

I made an Easter column with the 4 pockets far left of the page. These alphas are really powder or ice blue  but on yellow they turned kind of grayish. But it's ok. We're not looking for perfection, are we?

I used a technique that I really hate (!!!) which is writing directly on my photo with a slick marker. I hate it because I always feel like the ink has a yellow/orange flare to it. I also don't like it because I can,t seem to ever find the right way and place to write. I do like my handwriting and here I really didn't want to hide any of my picture with a label so I tried it again. Ali (Edwards) does it always perfectly. Me? Not sure... but anyway, it's there and it's good enough for this one time. :)

Lovely lovely PL cards in the kit this month. And I treated myself this month and bought the sprinkles kit in which I found these ADORABLE tiny stickers. I mean, look at this "love this". So cute!! The Dear Lizzy very cute and optimistic phrases, also in the sprinkles kit, are one of my favorite product EVER! Yay for Dear Lizzy!

The sprinkles kit again had some doilies. I like them to add a little touch of solid color through all these patterns of the Fancy Free collection. And paired with the embellishments from the PL and Embellishments kit, they are just perfect. :)

On my right page I used two very white cards to let the eye rest in the middle of all these patterns and colors!

My mom turned 67 when she was here. :) A pink cake! I didn't think that it would match the kit, I swear!! lol

I got a little over the top with creativity on this card. I wrote in circle and stitched 2 lines around my journaling. Added a small puffy heart in the middle. The card was so cute and simple, maybe I should have just let it be with the tiny heart in the middle. But you know how I love journaling and want to write everything. 

That little puffy LOL is so cute!!! Yay for simple and modern embellishments like this one! This little card is also simple and perfect!! So beautiful colors.

This die cut is silver foiled. Just beautiful. I didn,t capture it when I shot my pictures of my spread. And the ps I love you puffy sticker...again, I love it!!!!

I decided to use lots of colors behind this photo. Everything else was too plain and didn't work. So to tone it down, I used a navy blue no pattern fairly big sticker.  And the 4EVER... swoon. So sweet and simple. I still have plenty of these tiny puffy stickers left and they are ALL so so cute!!!

Have a great day my friends and thanks for stopping by!
