Here is what the kit looks like...


And here are a few of my creations with it this month! 

For this months sketch...

The right photo just happened. I LOVE that. 
This picture was taken of my daughter outside of her sister's school, while she was
leaning on my van waiting for her sister to come out. I did mirror the sketch, and then
added my own scrappy style of course!
  
"Warning: Objects in Mirror Are WAY More Beautiful Than They Appear"


And this photo? My sister in law snapped it at my brother's wedding this past September.
My little man, at 2, bowing his head during the prayer at the reception. 
Again, LOVE!!

 "I will Cherish This Forever"


And I can't possibly leave you without really pouring on the color here...

"Go On, Create"

I love the creativity in your first layout! It isn't something that jumps off the page but that makes it even more wonderful once you've studied all the pieces. I love how you've captured your daughter. The colors are amazing. Very soft but perfect for that piece.
Your son praying is just so precious and again the color palette you chose is amazing. The versatility of that kit that allows you to do that is wonderful.
I love the color in the last picture!
Great pieces!
