Studio Calico-Sock Hop Page

It has been awhile since I have blogged but with working and two little ones, I have just decided to blog as I can. Anyways, I just received Studio Calico's November kit, Sock Hop. I don't usually have time to make a page so quickly after I receive a kit, but I had some time today so decided to dig in.  I just got the main kit this month as my stash has been building, and I really did not need any of the add-ons, though I really liked all of them. I was able to pick up some Basic Grey Fact and Fiction items from Jo-Ann's to go with the kit. (This line is only sold at Jo-Ann's, but some of the items were included in Studio Calico's November kit and shop items.) I also added some items from my stash. I have added links to items included (if available) below the layout.

Here is the layout - a picture of Eli from Summer 2011 (This seems like just yesterday; they grow so fast!):

The title is from my handwriting and then cut from the Silhouette. I wrote the title on a piece of paper, scanned it in and used Photoshop Elements and the Silhouette software to make it into a cut file.  This was kind of an experiment and I liked how it turned out and will probably do this more often.

Thanks for stopping by!
