Finishing up my Inspired By Shimelle kit

WOW- I really got a lot out of this kit!Here are a few things that I made with it that I haven't shared yet: This page, based on the June 8 sketch from Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits:

My Layout, "Life Is Good Today":
 Supplies I used: Co'ordinations Chocolate Box herringbone embossed cardstock that I sanded to show the lighter core, DCWV, Basic Grey, and Heidi Grace patterned paper, a banner made with punched scraps and fiber, and various other bits of punched scraps and paper tape.
The next layout was pulled together from bits of papers and the one full sheet that I had left:
 Supplies used:
GCD Studios Zen Garden "Bamboo"(B side for the main cs), and scraps of Graphic 45, Basic Grey, and DCWV papers, a fiber that reminded me of feathers, a camera from the digi kit (my special item) that I printed out on watercolor paper and fussy cut, Thickers and Scrabble letter stickers.
I also made a couple of cards from the kit; one that was inspired by a sketch from Kimber at 2Peas:

And another card and card base simply made from scraps: 

In the end, this is what I was left with:

Not too bad, right? I will probably chuck the smallest scraps, put the stickers and tape away, and keep only the largest scraps.
(This is what I started with):
 And here is a quick collage of everything that I made with it:
Be sure and come back tomorrow, I'll be starting on my second "Shimelle Inspired" kit!
