It's Rough Being 2 / Hip Kit Club

Oh, the days of little toddler temper tantrums!  Haha!  My sweet Paige is now five, but in these photos she was only two.  And in her defense, we were stuck and stranded waiting on her pediatrician in those tiny little doctor rooms.  We waited and waited and waited...so naturally she got antsy.  Of course a whiny fit was bound to happen.  I almost had one myself...haha!  What to do when this happens?  Break out the camera and snap away, of course :D

This is my fourth layout using the July Kits from Hip Kit Club.  I really wanted to use the October Afternoon sheet with all these cute speech bubbles, so I fussy cut a lot of them out.  They seemed to go perfectly with her facial expressions :)

I used the Sweet Cherry Heidi Swapp Color Shine (included in the Color Kit) and my own Mister Huey's Water Coolor and Gold Color Shine to make my messy background.  I'm really loving squirting the color onto plastic packaging and then using that to press it onto the paper.  I added splatters, too.

I love these speech bubbles!  I used pop dots on a few to really create a fun layered & dimensional look.

That big 2 is from the Teresa Collins chipboard sheet from the kit, and I mixed up my alphas using Thickers and little Lily Bee stickers.  I did add in my own washi tape in several places.  I think I used four different tapes!

More Teresa Collins chipboard and stamps from Simple Stories.

This was a fun kit to work with.  I know the August kits are already out!  I really enjoyed this one because it was made up of things I didn't already have.  It challenged me to work with colors I don't normally choose, and the papers really gave me fun ideas (like the speech bubbles).

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
