First up, this awesome layout of her son :).
I love the beautiful simplicity - a little paint, a little bit of cardstock, and the stars. Isn't he a heartbreaker?! Being a mom to four* boys, I really appreciate masculine scrapbooking supplies and kept that in mind with this sampler. However, this one isn't just for the boys:
I love this sampler for parades! The 4th of July here in the US is my favorite holiday and I am inspired to save some of this sampler for parade photos :). Amanda altered the cardboard clouds with paint, and framed her title with a painted postage stamp frame. The great textured piece under the photo is the paper ribbon from the sampler. Do you spy a young Amanda in the photo?
And speaking of Amanda as a young girl, isn't she lovely? Again, I love the paint. You don't need much patterned paper when you put the sampler to use like this :). ***If you are a die-hard patterned paper lover, though, I've got you covered with some paper options that match the kit next Friday :).*** Even after three layouts, Amanda still had plenty to create this adorable card with:
And she still has pieces to play with :). Amanda, thank you so much for the inspiration! If you would like to purchase a June Sampler, you can find it here.

*PPS - edited to add, I only have three boys! I must have been counting the hubby when writing this post :). So if you've been wondering....no! I'm not expecting :).
