Paint fun / Date night

Finally playing with my June Hip Kit, like I said in my last post, man did I pick the wrong moth to get just the main kit,lol. These papers are so pretty and bright and they work for bot my boys and girls! Thats a huge plus for me. 

So summer break has started and I love all the time we get with the kiddos. We have a small list of thing that we want to this summer, nothing to big, but fun all the same. 

Well we managed to already get on of the items on our list done!! We did a paint slip n' slide!! It was so much fun and I have so many more photos but I loved this picture of my oldest son! He doesn't look to happy but I promise he had a blast! He's already at that age that when he sees the camera on him he stops smiling, ugh, I though that was suppose to happen when they were teenagers,lol.
We've already decided that this will happen again this summer! I do have to day though, if any of yall decide to do this, it takes more paint than you think! lol and once you've started with the paint on the tarp or slip n' slide dont add water!! It turns everything brown or a nasty shade of green. But so worth doing!!

I have a bunch of tickers, some I've bought myself and then others have come in my kit. Well I've been watching Adele Toomey or Inky Quills videos on youtube and she did a few videos on using left over thickers. So I figured, hey why not. These thickers are from my March Hip Kit, there Crate paper Marque thickers and they were the perfect color of tealy blue to go with the papers in this kit too!! Thank you Kimberley for that! I love the way it turned out! I didn't want anymore paper on the page to take away from the layering behind the photo but I also didn't want a colored background either. I am really happy with how this layout turned out though and thank you Adele for the inspiration!


Hip Kit has weekly challenges on there facebook page and this week was no different and a huge plus this week, Ashley Horton of The Cut Shoppe designed a special cut file for us to use.

I used my June Hip Kit for this layout too and Ashlyes cut file. They yellow behind the cut file didnt come in the kit, I used yellow washi from Little B. I just liked the bright color behind the cut outs to go along with the yellow in the triangles. There are a few things from past Hip Kits as well. But this was my take on the challenge. We were to be inspired by the cut file for this challenge along with a repetitive phrase, a circle, sequins, a chipboard element, something aqua and something yellow. Well as you see I decided to use the actual cut file, I thought it fit for a picture of me and hubby on a date night, going to see a 

Well I hope you all enjoy the layouts! Hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Fathers Day to so many of you out there!!
