Delightful Pieces of You in the Lazy Summer Days!

My life was in such shambles for the last few weeks that I didn't have the time (and the energy) to blog about and show you quite a few layouts I created. I think now is a good time to clear a little bit of those "debts"! :D I'm bringing you all the pages I made for Designs by Anita during the past month!

(Can I congratulate myself yet again for coming up with this title? LOL! Okay, it might not be the 3 Z's that you requested, Ella, but I think it's quite awesome that I manage to use the names of 3 kits in the same title! Haha! Go me!)

Feel free to click on all images to go to stores or to see bigger size in gallery!

For this first kit, I can't believe that I made these 2 pages almost a month ago! June 2010 seems to me like one big challenge to see how a person can still live and function with as little sleep as possible. LOL I guess I passed the challenge but just barely. Just.

This one is Delightful (available at ScrapInsider.) Oh what fun I had with this kit! I love the muted classic yet joyful colors. It makes me want to create something more thoughtful. Something very special to you.

Here are the two pages I made with the kit! One has Chris's story and the other one is of a cute church we found in Lebanon.

Journaling reads:
It is always difficult to get Papa to smile properly for the camera.
His smile sometimes looks so awkward that when you see the pictures,
you feel sorry for the poor guy.
The only time to capture his genuine smiles on film is when he's with Neill.
The boy can always be trusted to bring out the best in us.
{....Well, and sometimes the worst too.}

I used my Simply Secured template for this one. :)

Journaling reads:
We found this little church on top of a small hill
among the sea of tall mountains in northern Lebanon.
Something about it made us stop to take this photograph.
The fairytale-like building felt dreamy, cosy, serene, ..almost magical.
It was a delightful day.

The next kit is Pieces of You (available at MScraps and Two Little Pixels), a collab kit between Anita and LieN of ClickPhoto Designs (who is one of my all-time favorite designers!) Look at the delicious colors in this kit! Great concept as well. I will definitely use the kit to make more layouts but sadly I only had time for one page so far.

I've always wanted to use this funny photo of Neill in a layout. The concept of this kit is just perfect for it!

Journaling reads:
eyes - incapable of seeing real persons when there's cartoon on TV
eyebrows - knitted together in a little frown when notified that McDonald's is not an option
ears - stop functioning right after the word 'homework' is mentioned
nose - marvels at finding stinky veggies in mom's delicately cooked meals
mouth - pout! pout! waa! waa! boo! boo!

The sum of all parts? .... One perfect little boy!

Now this most recent kit is a HUGE one!!!! It's a big collab between Anita, Sabrina's Creations, Scooty's Designs, and AVDesigns called Lazy Summer Days (available at MScraps, TwoLittlePixels, ZigZagScrap and ScrapInsider too!) I absolutelly fell in love with the beautiful papers of this kit! The colors are also great for both boys and girls!

I made a 2-page layout with this kit. And you can click here to see both sides of this double pager in bigger size!

There you have it! I still "owe" you some more layouts though. As soon as I have a few hours on my own I'll blog about them, I promise! :)

A piece of news before I go. Asa and I made a template for DSC's Template Challenge June 25 - July 2. If you have time, join us there! I hope you like the template. Click on the preview to go to the challenge thread and your download link. ;)
