You are My Sunshine

Hello! Jamie here, and it's my day to take over the blog, and I'm so in love with this project! Maybe it's because I'm wishing for spring? I'm also happy with how easy it was to take a Raisin Boat stamp set and use it for my journaling on this project.

This was actually a kit I purchased for under $2 at a garage sale at a crop I attended last fall. I totally scored with it!

I started by inking the edges of ALL the pieces with coordinating colors of Memento dew drop inks. The hardest part of these kits, I think, is not losing any of the tiny pieces. Sometimes that's a struggle! I had to cut down my sun "rays" and my grass into pieces before inking. Then I started assembling; this is probably my least-favorite part - but it's so worth it!!! 

After I assembled the layout, I took my amazing Kirarina Wink Glitter markers and added the doodling. This is pretty labor intensive, but it makes the layout so much cuter! I added some chalk in different places as well.

I took monthly pictures of my kids in their first year, so I don't journal on these layouts. Instead, I found the perfect sentiments from the Raisin Boat You are My Sunshine stamp set! I had to rearrange the you are my sunshine sentiment, but that's the great thing about using a stamp positioning tool and clear stamps!

I doodled some more with the Kirarina markers on the sentiments. I really wanted sunshine to pop off the page, so I wrote over that with a marker.
