HK Memory Chest Kit Club - April 2015

Hello from sunny Bali. We're here for a week of fun in the sun. A little too much sun, really. It's been pretty hot and humid here, but we're lucky to be five steps away from a pool. We're staying at a villa with some of our friends and Miss C finally got to try out her mermaid tail. She is a natural and mastered it immediately. We have until the end of the week for her to grow gills.

Right now, most of our friends have gone out to enjoy a few drinks and we decided to stay back at the villa, just chilling and relaxing. Perfect time to prop my feet up, put on a DVD and write this blog post.

This month's kit is again, jam-packed with goodies. Such a cute kit, with cartoon images themed around food and breakfast in particular and so much fun to play with.  Get out those breakfast/food pics and play with us.

Here's my sketch for the month:

Ridiculously Big Fabulous Brekkie
 The perfect photo for this themed collection. I kept the colours quite neutral for this layout with more browns and yellows. I just noticed that both photos are exactly the same; I had slightly different ones but I didn't notice I printed the same one twice until now. Oh well.
The photos were from our trip last Easter to Orlando, Florida. Big portions are of course a must but I think we ordered more than we bargained for, hence the title. I die cut the 'fabulous' from one of the patterned papers and made it into a chipboard title by adding more layers.
 Just a little accent corner on the top left of the layout.
 I love these little word stickers which you can just stick on randomly. Perfect for the photo. For the background, I used a tan cardstock, added random alphabet stamping and then splattered on a bit of brown ink. I finished the page with some enamel stars for an added accent.

Extra Elements: Fabulous die from Kaisercraft, tan cardstock

Cute Buddies
 For this layout, I wanted a white background to bring out the colours of the papers. My Jake cat looks well impressed with getting his picture taken and with the little girl using him as a pillow.
I love the wooden word tiles; just string them up with some twin or jute to make an instant banner. I die cut the hearts out of the add-on patterned paper in a rainbow of colours and added similar coloured paints underneath to look like they are dripping down the page.
The kit comes with a pack of ready die cuts; perfect for date stamping and adding accents.
I splattered some pink paint on the white background before adding my other elements. I love the wooden pegs which add an extra fun accent to your page.

Extra Elements: Distress paints by Tim Holtz for Ranger Inks, jute twine, white cardstock

Hello Cuties
I love the yellow cloud paper and how it contrasts with the blue good morning paper. I kept this layout pretty simple to concentrate on the cute photos instead. I had to dig deep into the archives for these photos of the two cousins at four and five. I must have had my mind on our holiday as these pics were taken on our first trip to Bali in 2010.
I diecut the 'hello' and again made it thicker by diecutting and sticking layers of cardstock behind it. The kit comes with a generous bag of buttons and I stuck them around the page as well as some brads.
There are some really cute images on the the cereal patterned paper and I cut out some of the critters to add around the page. I die cut the rainbow from some of the left over patterned papers from the add-ons. I just love this owl family.
Another cute critter cut out from the cereal paper. Adorable.

Extra Elements: Hello and rainbow die from Sizzix
