Baby, it's Cold Outside!

Okay, not really. Here in Oregon we're finally getting out summer weather and it's going to be in the 90's for the next couple days. :)

But, at A Walk Down Memory Lane, we are going to cool things off a bit by having a Christmas in July crop!

For the week of July 12th through the 16th, we are going to be hosting fun challenges on the DT blog. Every challenge you complete, enters you in a drawing for a prize from...Jillibean Soup! Yeah, baby!
My challenge will be posted on the 13th. I hope you will all join in! :D
See you soon!

Jillibean Soup at AWDML

Oh, this month's featured manufacturer is so much fun! It's Jillibean Soup! I'm actually ashamed to admit this but I've never used Jillibean before and now that I have...I love it!!! Great patterns, great colors, lots of different styles, and oh the letters! You know I love me some letters and theirs are fabulous!

Okay, enough gushing....for now. ;) Here are some layouts I've made with Jillibean Soup!

This layout uses the Egg Drop Soup line. It's a spring/Easter line and works well for pages about my little girl...and her need to rub everything she eats in her hair. Sigh. :)

Journaling reads: Miss Thing decided to style her own hair today. Her styling product of choice? Bananas!

Products Used: Cardstock-Bazzill, Patterned Paper-Jillibean Soup, Letter Stickers-Jillibean Soup, Cardstock Letters-Jillibean Soup, Border Punch-Fiskars, Stickers-Jillibean Soup, Punch-Martha Stewart, Mist-Maya Road

This layout uses the New England Clam Chowder line. It's such a cute boy line! With all kinds of cars and trucks, I can see using this for my Little Man for a long time! Good thing I picked up a lot of it! LOL!
Journaling reads: You love to line up your cars. You either “park” them or set them up like a train. It’s cute to see you organize them just so. Love, Mom. Line ‘em up and then drive ‘em off. So much fun!

Products Used: Cardstock-Bazzill, Patterned Paper-Jillibean Soup, Letter Stickers-Jillibean Soup, Cardstock Letters-Jillibean Soup, Stickers-Jillibean Soup, Pens-Tombow & Uniball, Journaling Spot-Jillibean Soup

Oh, this is my new favorite layout! When I got a hold of this paper, I knew exactly which pictures would go fabulously with it and I had a great idea in my head. It took a few hours of futzing around and a lot of measuring (yes, I'm a math nerd!) but it came out just like I wanted! It's so rare when that happens for me and I love it when it does!!! :D

Journaling reads: You may be sweet, Miss Audrey, but that lemon sure wasn’t! It didn’t stop you from trying to eat it though. You just kept on trying, my little Lemon Head!
Products used: Cardstock-Bazzill, Patterned Paper-Jillibean Soup, Cardstock Letters-Jillibean Soup, Ink-Ranger, Border Punch-Fiskars, Mist-Maya Road, Dies-Spellbinders, Pen-Tombow

These letters were so much fun! I first sprayed them with two different colors of mist, yellow and cream and then inked the edges. Gave them that slightly aged, yet still cheerful feel that I get when I see that patterned paper. :)

Remember, since Jillibean Soup is one of AWDML's Featured Manufacturers, all Jillibean products are 25% off through the month of July. So hop on over to the store and have fun!
Oh, and come back soon! Our second featured manufacturer is a local company...Technique Tuesday!!! Yay!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
