Kit Opening Ritual...

The beloved Studio Calico box arrived at my door this week and I thought I would share the excitement of our kit opening ritual with you! It's always the same:

I put the box on the floor and announce the arrival to the cats. Willie comes first and has to sniff the box...



Then, Willie likes to sniff each item for approval, as I take them out of the bag. (It's hard to get a good picture of this because he keeps moving)...



Johnny is more of a passive participant. Usually he likes to lay on the packing paper but this time he decided to be different and lay next to it - lol. Everything gets laid out on the floor for viewing...

and then we set it all up real nice and take a picture. This is the kit plus add-ons. Doesn't it look positively yummy???!!!...


this time I also ordered the Studio Calico exclusive Documentary Collection! I absolutely love it! My fave paper is the red one with the alphabet! It's sooooo COOL! Then, each kit goes into one of my buckets, so it is easy to see and use!

I will leave you with my art journal page from June 9 and 10...

Have a fantastic Friday my friends! Thanks for visiting and see you soon!
