Here we go...

I guess it's about time that I posted my layouts from Label Tulip this month! We have been so busy these past few days, blogging has been at the bottom of my priority list. 'Tis the season for CHA project deadlines, summer BBQ's, and *dream* DT call try-outs! ;0) But, I decided to take a break for a few minutes to show my blog some love. And, the LT kits truly deserve their due attention this month 'cuz they are *A*mazing!



This month's challenge was to scrap about one of the most exciting moments of our life. One of mine had to be when I got to meet Tori Amos. If you know me at all, you know how much I love my music... and Tori has always been one of my favorite artists.



This is my take on this month's member gallery lift, which came from the talented Amy Coose. Here's her beautiful layout...



Gorgeous, isn't it? It was so much fun to lift!



A quick little card.

And, then there's the project that ate up nearly all my product and time from this month's kit. LOL! My mini-book about our trip to Disney World...

<

You can view the book in its entirety here. A couple of fun tips for working with Donna Downey's Prima fabric albums...

If you have A LOT of pictures (like me) that won't all fit into the book in a larger format, sew little pockets into the plastic page protectors included with the book. Then, you can print out lots of smaller photos, back them with some pretty patterned paper, and label them on the back with what the photo is of...



To make pretty backgrounds on the fabric pages, lay a piece of lace cardstock (like the Little Yellow Bicycle travel-themed one in this month's kit) over the fabric, and spray over it with some Maya Mist from Maya Road...



The creative possibilities are endless with this kit! Another great month with Label Tulip. :0) I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I'm off to finish up my Pink Paislee projects for CHA. You're gonna' LOVE their new goodies! And, I'll be back tomorrow with a little foodie post. Until then...
