New crush

Paper crush that is!
The May kit from Crazy Daisy Kit Co. has several pieces of Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye papers that are truly delightful! The texture and quality of these papers is outstanding. That Mind's Eye paper is so thick and nice for painting or tearing or crunching up. I'm in love!
It's the kind of paper that you buy and save to use for one of those "special" layouts because it's such great quality.

I'm throwing that philosophy out the window, by the way, and I'm going to start using my stash! I mean, every layout is special, right?

Here are a couple of layouts I put together over the weekend with my May kit.
(that felt tree branch? SWOON! Yes, there is a pack of two in the kit.)

I also channeled my inner Debee Ruiz with the spray paint on this first page.
I love the randomness of the drips!This next page is about Taco.
Taco is a horse.
Not just any horse, mind you.
This horse has been around over 25 years!
25 years of kiddos and competitions
The cool part, is he is still competing.
Hard to believe I know.
He is at home when he hits the arena and although he is super sweet and mostly calm outside the pen, he turns it on when he has to and knows exactly what to do.
I truly feel it makes him happy to do it. :)
That "Happy" title is from a collection of Cosmo Cricket chipboard in the kit.
It's adhesive backed, and it actually sticks, which makes me happy!
More to come from this kit.
Have I mentioned I'm guest designing this month for Crazy Daisy? {heehee}
