I have a new layout and a neat project that I did with the Backporch Memories June kit that I can't wait to share with you! But you will have to wait until the 10th! In the meantime here's what I got in the June medley kit:

At Backporch Memories they actually offer TWO monthly kits, which works out great if your a little choosy! Here's the solo kit for June which features "Max and Whiskers" by Basic Grey

And don't forget, the July guest designer contest is now open and layouts are due by the 10th! I highly reccomend that you give it a go! I've had so much fun over there this month!!

My Backporch Memories Challenge

I received my kit full of goodies from Backporch Memories yesterday. It was like Christmas! I was so excited to do my layout for my Photo Challenge as the guest designer. My challenge was to do a layout with photo's of different people at the same age. Like mother/daughter, siblings, husband/wife, etc...

Here's what I did:

I was instantly in love when I saw "Brook" from Crate Paper. It has soothing natural colors, just beautiful!

I kept this layout fairly simple because I wanted the focus to be on the photo's, but those glitter chip shapes made it super easy to add a little something extra! The little memo pins from Tim Holtz were so adorable and perfect for holding a little note, wouldn't cha say?

Everything on this layout is from the June medley kit, except for the buttons which are from my stash. Also I used my Martha Stewart border punch, and I used my Slice to make the flower. Go check out Backporch Memories if you want to join the challenge to win some goodies!
