Kit of choice- I used "Kindergarten Round-Up" a HUGE collab by some of the awesome designers at I Got Lucky Skraps. This kit is so much fun to work with, filled with bright colors and tons of fun elements!! It will make some awesome layouts and tags!
Tube- I'm using a free tube by Lix, an artist you can find at PTE. In the sample below, I'm using the work of Ismael Rac found here. You must have the proper license to use either of these tubes!
Template- CV_Template6 by Salsa found here
