Ahh - Summer!

I am really enjoying these long summer days! No schedule to speak of, getting caught up on the computer and spending time in my scrappy room - it's just so nice!  I have projects #7 and 8 to share today.

The first is a layout of Shane doing his favorite summertime activity - swimming.

Supplies used: Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny - green dot, Echo Park - light blue, dark blue, Simple Stories - graph paper, Enamel Dots - Doodlebug Designs, Sun brad - Echo Park, Alpha and word stickers - Simple Stories, Border Punch - Fiskars.

I made this layout for a telephone scraplift that I joined in on over at Cookin' Up Creations. It's not my normal style, but that's what I like about these challenges once in a while. I had to really think about this, as the original had a lot of fussy cutting and just wasn't my style. But I really like how this one turned out, and you can bet I'll sign up for another round of telephone scraplift!

I'm also sharing a card that I made for my daughter. She just finished up her first year of teaching, so I thought she deserved a little congrats from me!

I had seen this Youtube video several weeks ago and I really liked her card. I have lots of scraps I could have used for this, but instead I pulled out my much neglected washi tapes and went to town! I stamped the sentiment and added a few wood veneer stars and it was done!

Two more projects done! As always - thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!


  1. Still LOVING that layout, Lori. You really did a great job with it. Awesome washi card!

  2. Hi Lori, Great layout and super card - I watched the video link but I have to say I like your card better. xx

  3. I just barely saw your comment on my blog! I need to get back into scrapping. I miss it too. Looks like you are going strong. Cute stuff!! Love that layout!
