Monthly Kits and Much More

Last day of the month it is.... time flies when you're having fun!
This first month on the DT has been good for me.
Erin, Julie and Noeleen... thank you for your guidance. It could not have been such a great month without you girls!
Also my fellow DT member, thank you for a wonderful and fun month! Let's rock the message board with our new challenges!
Now I do have a technique to show you, get yourself a nice cup of coffee and don't throw away the left over, just rub it over your paper for some good distressing!For this layout I started with tearing strips of paper and glued that to a piece of cardstock, then I rubbed the coffee left over, over the papers and there you go... one good smelling distressed page. Leave it dry overnight.

Here's how it turned out:

This is a really old photo, which I scanned and printed.
I believe it's the only photo from my great great (great) grandmother.
See the wooden shoes? I think she's doing laundry here. What a life.......

Another thing I would like to share with you is to recycle your package.
Some manufactors have wonderful things like this tag from Kaisercraft.
Prima is also a good one to use the package. So take a good look before putting it in the bin!

These layouts were made, ofcourse, with the July kit.
Hope you've enjoyed it as much as I did and wait till you see August.....
again a wonderul pick by Erin!

Thank you for looking, see you at the message board!

I don't drink coffee but I think you can do the same with tea.
