Summer Time

TS has some fabulous challenges this month. Please stop by for a look at the work of many talented scrappers.

This first layout combines 2 challenges.
Debbie's Red/White/Blue challenge is using these colors without tying them to the 4th of July.
Pinky's Thank Heavens for the Sewing Machine challenge is in honor of - you guessed it - the sewing machine. She asked us to include sewing or fabric somewhere on our layout.
I cut the star and "a splash of" from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cart. The word "summer" was cut using the Lyrical Letters cart. I also used a star border punch on the red strip of paper, some red ribbon to help frame out the photo, star buttons tied with jute, and zigzag stitching around the edge of the star. Don't you just love this balancing act to wash the grass off his feet?!? He is so funny and smart. Carter had a great time "splashing" around in the water.

This layout completes Aymee's "Life's a Bowl of Blueberries" Challenge. All Aymee asked of us was to use the color blue and a circle or circles. Now, how easy is that! My background paper has the circle shape repeated in many ways and is primarily blue. Also, Carter's plate and the bowl on his head (which was the hard-hat he needed for his job he said.) are circular shape. I used the Home Decor Cricut cart to cut these stars. Then, I used blue distressing ink on the edges of the off-white matting and journaling box before attaching them to the stars. I also used popdots on the largest star which is at the bottom of the page for some added dimension and interest.

Thanks for checking out my blog today. Please come back soon.
Happy Scrappin'
