jbs mercantile: february reveal

the kits are live over at jbs mercantile and the design team gallery is loaded with lots of pretty things.  per usual, i cut into the antiquarian kit right away.  i just always find that the motifs in there really speak to me.  this month it was the little ads for women's wigs and hair care products.  i had a hard time cutting into them, but i felt like that woman went perfectly with this layout.  i didn't really want a picture of myself distracting from the one of my son sleeping (on the night before he turned ten, TEN!  how can that be?), but i think the little illustration works well to represent me.

i am also still into the patterned paper barcode words and used another on this layout, "be loved."

and it worked out nicely again to use the same supplies on the facing page in my project life spread.

i worked in some more of the vintage hair care ads with my little pinterest buns and used some of lisa dickinson's exclusive (aqua) patterned paper to separate the birthday day pictures from the rest of the spread.  the numbers for "10" are leftover from last month's kits.  i'm getting a lot of mileage out of those.

and i've used the exclusive scattered hearts stencil already too!  i added little heat embossed hearts to a couple of the tickets.  so cute!  if you're looking for more inspiration today, head on over to the gallery.  you'll see the girls are "in love" with this month's kits.  :)
