In my version, I chose to use many items from the Sassafras Lass Nerdy Bird collection. I have had these papers in my stash for awhile, and this was the perfect opportunity to use them. The colors of Nerdy Bird are somewhat different from the inspiration kit, but I was excited that they included purple and pink! These were my daughter's favorite colors as a little girl. In the back of my mind, I wanted to make a boy's add-on, so I did not mind if this one was on the feminine side.
Papers: Coordinating Bazzil cardstock, Bo Bunny Sunkissed "Summer" & "Adventure", Crate School Collection "Ruler", Echo Park Sweet Summertime "Raspberry Delight", Sassafras Lass Nerdy Bird "Cheery", "Tea for Two", "Starstruck", "Sprightly", "Book Club", and My Mind's Eye Jack & Jill "Serene Spots"

I was finally able to put together a boys kit! Since I have three boys, it was a no brainer. Mine has a rather patriotic feeling with all the stars, red, white and blue but it could be used for any event, as well as 4th of July.
