I think I found something to get me out of my funk....kit clubs! Really, I have been in a total, undeniable non creative funk. Until I totally fell head over heels in love with Cocoa Daisy. So much so, that I really don't have much of my kits left..just bits and pieces. And trust me, I don't see that love affair ending! Then I got a girl crush on a new kit club Gossamer Blue. So, I decided to try it out. NOT that I am not getting things from my LSS, ha it's like Cheers there! (is that song stuck in your head now? good I hope so!)

Close up of the resist banner. I probably should have wiped off the mist after spraying, but it was my first time using one of these and I kind of like the subtle look.
The Bits and Pieces kit is really beachy themed...so I just covered the saying on the pennant with one of the Heidi Swapp labels and made my own banner. And I am in love with that button!
And yes, I have three close ups this time. It's just the way it worked out. The 'love' letters were white, so I just misted them to make them stand out. That tissue paper under the hexagon sticker is part of the packaging of the main kit.
I had started a thread over on Two Peas about kit clubs. You have to find the one that is right for YOU! It's kind of like bras...there are a ton of different ones out there, but you have to find the one that fits the girl right! And that is all I am going to say on that subject.
