Feels like summer

Arkansas weather feels like we are just on the edge of summer. The season I love the most!

I love no school, which equallys sleeping in!

I love a sweating kiddo

I love big sunglasses and sunscreen

I love afternoons splashing in the pool & the smell of chlorine

I love having time to read (currently enjoying Jodi Picoult’s “19 Minutes”)

I love Watermelon and BBQ’s

I love NO agendas, NO activities, NO sporting events

I love watching her jump in the sprinkler & eating popsicles

We are right there, so close! A few more weeks of school then we are home free. Awe

Of course we have to scrapbook all those amazing summer moments as well! I LOVE bright colors for summer and I have a few favorites I can’t wait to use, they are really just screaming to have photos on them of swimsuits, beaches, big sunglasses and kite flying.

The first is from a new company Echo Park Paper Company. Summertime is their first and only line released so far and they have my mouth watering as to just what they will put out next. It is very bright and great for boys or girls. It features a lot of banners which are the “it” thing right now too.

The second is from October Afternoon and it’s called “Fly a Kite”. It is more muted but still summer ready and very kitchy which is totally cute. Good for far more than kite flying pics.

As soon as I get my pics on this paper I will share! Happy Scrapping.

Birthday Package

Just a quick post about a birthday party we are headed to this afternoon. It is a pirate themed party for a little boy named Parker, whose mom I am good friends with. She is definatly the modern mom and has great style. So maybe there isn’t many mother’s of 2 year olds that appreciate this but I think she will love it.

I used my faithful Cricut and the Indie Art cartridge to create a mask on the wrapping paper which I painted around and did some splattering on. It definatly pops with the lime green and black! For the card I used the same cartridge to cut out another skull and then I did his name on the Stamped cartridge to create a simply but dimensional personalized card. I added Crystal Laquer to the white parts of the card and a bit of Lime Green Stickles (again, my favorite product right now!) to the card for some sparkle. For the vellum envelop I did another mask with spaltters and rub-on of the #2 for his special day so they coordinate. It should be cute and I am looking forward to a fun party with Parker!

Mini Acrylic Album

This is a cute acrylic album I out together for some summer fun photos. I’d been dying to do something with acrylic and LOVE Stickles so much right now that I combined the two. I was amazed by how the Stickles look on the Acrylic from both sides, they are better than I imagined – DeLicOuS! I’ll add some pics to the album soon and more ribbon to see how it all comes together…look for the completed album soon.
