Back Again with a Dango Reveal!

Yep! I'm here again already! I'll just make a quick one and share my latest and greatest from the Scrapdango kit for the month! This month Heather sent me the Spice kit, loaded up with Glitz goodies. Check it out...

I was a little nervous, as I'd never heard of this manufacturer before, but boy, was I suprised! This was a really great kit to work with. I've been using a ton of kraft cardstock as well as black and white and sepia photos, so this really worked beautifully with that! The ephemera is double sided, so you can use them as journal spots too.
Here's what I did...
This is a picture of J and his (now former) teacher. I hid his little draft of a letter he wrote her in the envelope.

This one is actually a short mini album we made for J's teacher. I decorated the outside and added some pics on the inside, while he wrote his actual letter to her. :)
Here's another fun little thing I made J. (A is NOT gonna be happy when she figures out the inequality in all this!) He already had the little peanut butter jar from the sitter's house where he keeps his allowance he earns from her. He brought it home for the summer, so I decided to decorate it a bit for him. In his words, "I like it a lot. Actually, I really love it!" (Ahhh, thanks bud!)

I wasn't quite sure of what I thought of this last one, but, once again, I really like how it turned out! I'm always trying to give my LOs more dimension, so this was fun for me to do so much messing around with the paper. I also started to go a little crazy with the GlimmerMist and the CS started to bend, but it's ok now that it's in the page protector.

Ok, so maybe that wasn't such a quick post afterall... Oh well, I had a blast! I'll be back around the 20th for the sketch reveal. This month's Dango sketch was designed by yours truly! I'm having a fab time creating those too lately! I need to download some more elements to use on them!

Thanks for stopping by!
