{scrapbook circle's june kit first avenue - and a giveaway!}

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a few projects I made with this month's kit - First Avenue! This kit is full of fun patterns and blues, greens and pops of orange. Lisa has also generously allowed me to give away this month's kit to one of my readers! Be sure to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win :)

Even though this is sort of a boyish color palette, I wanted to challenge myself to make a layout using a photo of my daughter. I changed the photo to black and white and I think it worked out well. I used my Silhouette to cut stars from the background and added orange cardstock underneath.

Also -- see those orange stars on the photo? Those are flocked rub-ons by Basic Grey that are in this month's kit. How fun!

I also added a few splatters of navy mist and some enamel dots from my stash.

This is a card I created with the kit as well. Love that 'rad' sticker from Basic Grey.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Here's a peek at the First Avenue kit. If you'd like a chance to win one, leave me a comment :)

ETA - commenting will be open until Monday June 10th at midnight Central time.
