Little Black Dress May Kit

Can't believe it's May already! This year is just flying. And I literally just realized that is the name of the kit this month: Time Flies. So here we are again, it's time to share the layouts I made for the Little Black Dress Kit Club.

This grey cardstock (actual color is "smoke") by American Crafts is my new white this month. I made a circle mask with my Silhouette & then used some white acrylic paint to "fill in" the circles.

I love these photos and am so glad I got this silly little story down on a layout. I used my handy dandy Silhouette again. That machine has been worth every penny. I'd love to someday have a Cameo, but my SD is working just fine.

This is one of the very few pictures I own of my grandpa and I. And what a bonus that it includes my awesome cousin too! I saw the origami bows on Pinterest and HAD to use them on a layout this month. I've definitely done a fair share of origami over the years, and these bows are just too cute! The tutorial is fairly easy to follow, so don't be afraid to try it (although it does take a little practice)!

See, I told you grey is my new white this month. Don't have much to say about this one. Just created a grid and filled it in.
