Back Porch Memories September Kit Reveal

The September kits at Back Porch Memories once again do not disappoint! The Medley kit features BasicGrey Olivia, Imaginisce Birthday Bash, and We R Memory Keepers Show and Tell. The Solo kit includes Sassafras Lass Indie Girl collection. Both kits have plenty of cardstock and embellishments to create several pages. I worked with the Medley kit this month, and here's what I created.

This was a fun page to make. I cut out the individual balloons and then used my sewing machine to stitch the strings and made a little bow with the ribbon in the kit to "tie" the strings together.
This page was a fun challenge for me. I don't usually do a ton of journaling on my pages, much less risk ruining a page by journaling directly on the page itself. *gasp* But I really wanted to get this story down on paper before I forgot it, and these WRMK papers were perfect for it!
This page was created for the "Layouts in 15 Minutes or Less" newsletter article. The Prima flowers were not included in the kit.
The kit included two cool birthday candles, and I was wanting to come up with a creative way to use one on a birthday card. This is my silly attempt at a layered birthday cake. I asked my kids if they knew what it was, and they had some difficulty identifying it, so I figured I better clarify lol. I used a rhinestone from the kit and some stickles from my stash to create the "flame".

Be sure and check out the Back Porch Memories Design Team gallery to see what the rest of these talented ladies created!
