Oh my goodness! Where has this week gone! It's past time for me to write my post and I haven't even taken any close-ups this time around! Thats not like me. But I think it will be okay You can just click on the photo to see things up close and personal! It will give you a great of view of all my imperfections =).
Our challenge this week at Stuck on U Sketches is easy peasy ... we just want to see someting "Summer Inspired." No sketch .. just pull out thise summer pix that need scrapping and have a blast!
I had to really think about what I wanted to do this time. Since my kids are grown and most of my grandkids don't live all that close, I'm not full to the brim with pix at the pool. And my hubby and I plan our vacations for any time EXCEPT the summer. I joked that I was going to do a layout about him mowing the yard!
But ... I had this great new photo of dgd Peyton taken with her cute little sundress on ... and had some awesome new papers from My Creative Scrapbook. It was a marriage made in Heaven .. LOL Some of you from the Cricut MB may remember my layout of Peyton from last year titled "See my Hair Bow?" Well, this one could have the very same title, couldn't it? This is one of her humongous hair bows .. but I think it's a fave of mine. And it co-ordinates so well with these yummy Loolah papers from Creative Imaginations. Just to change things up a bit, I used my die cut piece in the lower right corner and let one of the other papers peek through. My photo mat is cut from Cricut's Sentimentals cartridge and pop dotted. The scroll in the upper left corner is from Sweethearts. My title is cut from Gypsy Wanderings. Peyton is a little sweetie and she is like a breath of fresh air in our lives .. thus the title .. Sweet Summer Breeze. My butterflies are again from Tie The Knot and my fence is from the Heritage cart.
I used some of the embellishments from my kit to finish things off .. flowers scattered around .. on the fence and in amongst the flowers on the paper. Lots of bling on the flowers and photo mat. A little twine on the fence to represent a vine. And I just loved the Jolee's ladybug embellies which included that cute little caterpillar! So cute for a little girl page!
I totally enjoyed working on this one and hope that working on your Summer Inspired page brings you the same pleasure!
