Here are my creations this month using the February Medley Kit and February Medley Embellishment Pack!

Love My Sister - Camryn and Maryn are the best of buds. I love seeing Camryn light up when Maryn gets home from Kindergarten and then watching them play and giggle together all afternoon. They are very good at sharing with each other and Maryn is always showering Camryn with kisses and hugs!

Obsessed - In the fall I found a bunch of nightgowns at Target and decided to get several matching sets for Maryn and Camryn (since they fight over everything). They LOOOOOVE nightgowns. Camryn immediately became completely obsessed with the Dora set. She'd wear them every single day, hardly letting me take them off of her long enough to wash them. When she couldn't find them, she would tear apart Maryn's dresser drawers, the hampers, the clean laundry piles until she found them again. If Maryn was wearing hers, Camryn would literally rip them off of her and put them on! They became the source of so much two-year-old drama in our house that they finally HAD to mysteriously "disappear". I felt so bad about it, but it was getting out of control. Sorry, Cam. I hope you'll forgive me someday. ;) The chipboard letters are from my stash.
Forest Friend - I have so many snapshots of the deer migrating through our yard each day. I wanted to create a layout about them, but the pictures I took of the group didn't have the impact I wanted it to. The deer just sort of disappeared into the background as brown specs against the trees. So I decided to focus on a good shot of just one of the deer silhouetted against a snowbank. It worked so much better! The green brads, blue labels and chipboard letters are from my stash. Hello Card - For this card I used a sheet of Petticoat paper that you can purchase as an add-on with the kit. I just love the texture it added to the white background. The Martha Stewart bakers twine is from my stash.

Don't forget that Tuesday is the last day to leave a comment on the post below to be entered in my Sharing the Love Giveaway! :D
