Playing with Pocket Life with Melissa {Guessing Game #2}

Hello, and happy Friday, everyone! Melissa here with a new Pocket Life layout to share with you today! We're also on Day 2 of our sneak peek guessing game, and you have a chance every day between sneak peek and reveal to get your guesses in for this month's kit contents. One commenter will be drawn at random to win a $5 gift certificate to the Citrus Twist store!

You'll find some travel themed elements once again in Citrus Twist's August kits, and throughout the month the design team will be showing how to use these products to document "everyday travels." If you don't have vacation photos to scrap, you'll find lots of ideas here for scrapping photos taken a bit closer to home!

While I was putting together this particular spread for my weekly album, I really noticed how much I "go" on any given day. I drive to work every morning, I run several times a week, I take trips to the craft store, and my husband and I go out to eat and run errands together. That's a lot of going, and all of it without leaving our city! I included photos of all of that on this week's layout.



The letter + word stickers in the kit this month were simply perfect for adding finishing touches to a few of my photos!


Here's another idea for using travel themed products to document everyday memories- I used the "road trippin'" tab from the sticker sheet (any guesses as to who makes it and what line it's from?) included in this month's kit to embellish an iPhone screenshot of my running statistics. Running three miles around the roads in my neighborhood might not be a road trip in the traditional sense, but it still works!



I'm going to leave you today with a close-up shot or two of an embellishment I'm especially giddy about in this kit- the tiny wood veneer hearts! These are approximately the size of my pinky nail and were produced by me from one of Trina's designs. Citrus Twist and I are so excited to be able to add wood embellishments to our lineup of exclusives, and we hope that you love them as much as we do!


Have a great day, everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!
