New Kit...Black another FREEBIE!!

Today I have a new kit for you to check out! John and James, two of my sons, are taking karate. They absolutely love it and are doing quite well. They are very involved in tournaments, demo teams, and whatever else is going on at the dojo. I have so many pictures and haven't come across a kit that I love that included all I needed like trophies and medals. (I am not saying there aren't any out there, just that I haven't come across them).
Anyway, I decided I needed to make one. I started months ago and just couldn't get inspired. I picked it up again this month and this just flowed together. My boy's also do weapons so I included a bo staff and nunchaku.
I am also working on a big add on that will have all the belt colors that are included in my son's style (white, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown and black). I know red is also a popular color so I will include that one as well. On to the new kit... Photobucket Black Belt will be 40% off through June 3rd!
Fun, huh!
Here are a couple layouts I did. This particular tournament my son, James, did a fabulous job. He won several first places. The first layout is James and John doing a synchronized Kata. They won first place. The second layout is James sparring. He won first place in that as well. Photobucket Photobucket Here is a layout by one of my CT members, Chicka... Photobucket I also have a freebie for you...a bragbook page. Photobucket

Cherish and a Freebie!

Adriana's Cafe just released a new kit! It is a super fun, girly kit called Cherish. Photobucket I made a Mother's Day card front and used it in Sunday School on Mother's Day. I let the kids glue them to a half piece of pink card stock folded into a card. They wrote a sweet note inside and gave them to their moms for Mother's Day. Photobucket I also made this layout of my daughter coloring at a restaurant on one of our girl's nights. Photobucket And now for your freebie... I put together this simple frame cluster for you, enjoy! Photobucket

I played with a cute kit called Match Made in Heaven - Boho Baby by Psychozoe Designs over at Ginger Scraps. You can take a look at it HERE.
I made this cute bookmark to give to a Sunday School class that I am filling in for tomorrow. Their verse they are learning is Exodus 20:12 so hopefully this will help them remember it. Photobucket
