Tea Time and My Guys!

What a mix of a title huh! This kit is so versatile it is great for boys and girls!
I was inspired by the paper doily in the kit and remembered a birthday party my daughter went to when we were stationed in Germany and knew this kit would be perfect to scrap that moment! I dug way back in my photos and came up with these photos of Madison at her "tea party" from 2004!

I have had these pictures of my boys sitting around for years and have never pulled them out to scrap, but when I saw this paper with "My Favorite Guy" on it I remember this photo, I simply added an "s" to the end to include them all!

This page pretty much scrapped itself with the large decorative label on the background page... I added a couple pictures and embellishments and it came together in less than an hour! (which for me is pretty quick! lol)

I am SO very excited to be the Guest Designer this month for Noel Mignon... I have been a stalker of her beautiful kits for awhile and was over the moon when she asked me to guest design for May. I have to admit though when I saw it was going to be a vintage kit I whacked my own forehead... anyone who knows my styles knows I am far from vintage! lol...
As soon as I pulled pictures for this kit the layouts totally FELL INTO PLACE!! Everything is coordinating and so beautiful together, it makes it hard not to put together a great page quickly! I love knowing too that they pulled me a bit out of my normal comfort box and got me to scrap pictures that I normally wouldn't scrap... if you are on the fence on this kit or thinking you aren't a very vintage scrapper like me I say GO FOR IT... grab up this "Penny Arcade" kit and get to scrapping!!
