Totally Cool

Hi everyone. I've been playing with my cut-aparts from the Ain't Life Grand collection. While I was going through my scraps and cut-aparts, I came across the mini-cut apart strip of labels and thought it would be fun to use it as a journaling strip so that's what I did!  

I use a few scraps of patterned paper and scribbles stamps to decorate the back of the photos and cut-apart strip of labels.

I cut the camera from the 4x6 journaling card to use as a die cut for the layout. Then cut the xoxo square from the cut-aparts to tuck slightly behind the bottom photo.

I used a pen to journal inside the labels. I used the banner cut apart along with the "totally cool" cut-apart as the title for my layout. I used a foam square to pop the banner off the paper.

Beautiful summer day

Last night, on my way home from the grocery store, I texted my friend Katie to see if she wanted to bring her boys down to my beach today and she laughed because she was about to text me. HAHA. We met down the beach a little after 11:00 this morning and we stayed down the beach until 7:30! Pete was nice enough to order pizza, fries, mozzarella sticks and coke from a local shop who delivers down the beach. I tipped him well! :)

It was a little hot, but it was absolutely beautiful outside! Seriously, I love that I live 5 blocks from the Severn. It's nice having a friend with kids! They play and we talk. I miss having a friend that can hang out with me and my kid... and we had so much fun!

The kids played so nicely together... seriously. No fights all day.

They decided to take a break from the water to build a bridge. :)

My cutie...

My friend Katie.

These two... they curled up in the tube together, enjoying the view. Melts my heart.

Priorities... Water, chairs, book, cellphone, Cheese Curls and frozen grapes.

Happy children... happy moms... LOL

It was hard getting the kids out of the water... I made Katie be the bad mom... get them out so we can go home, give these kids a bath and put them to bed so we can have a break. LOL

This guy was hanging around all day... One of the kids from the neighborhood kept catching fish to feed him. :)

Here's me and Katie! This girl Is fun. So glad we became friends!
And here's another fun photo... Me with Keith and Billy. I love my neighbors. LOL

Pinterest Inspiration

Hi scrappers. I am so excited to share my layout inspired by the Pinterest image. I had such a fun time creating this layout. I decided to use my watercolor paints by Shimmerz Paints on this layout.

The first thing I did to prep the page was splash some blue, pink and yellow paint on to white cardstock.

Once the paint was dry, I used some Bamboo crisp dye ink by Altnew and a star stamp by Honey Bee stamps to stamp all over the page.
Here is how the background turned out.

I added some scribble circles by Precious Remembrance Stamps before I started applying my embellishments. I went with black, rather than a pink or green to make it stand out more against the bright colors.

For my title, I used Crate Paper's alpha stamps from the Oasis collection. I wanted to use stickers, but I didn't have any in my stash that were big enough. I wanted my title to be visible. :)

I hand cut the "memories made here" sentiment and flowers from the Live & Love paper.  Also, I printed the photos small enough so that they fit inside the die cut frames! LOVE.
