A Sunny, Scorching Sunday

Nothing like some 100 degree (plus) weather to get ya sweatin' a little!  The precise reason that SUMMER is No.4 on my list of favorite seasons grrrrrrr
1. Fall
2. Spring
3. Winter
4. Summer
The only thing I like about Summer?  My favorite season is right behind it :)

So, with the heat index rising, I get to spend more time here at the crafty desk...gettin' my craft on!
I finished the cutest page for a challenge at the Lemonade and Layouts Crop.  The challenge was to use as many circles as possible on a page.  These are actually some older photos of my middle son, Zach, but they go perfectly with the new Liberty line from Bo Bunny (and is also a part of the Back Porch Memories July Medley Kit...thanks Paula for the extra goodies!)

There's nothing like killing two birds with one stone (as the saying goes).  I had to create another card for I Heart {Ippity} as well as Your Scrapbook Stash's July Design Team projects.  I knew that I wanted to use the stamp of a sweet pear motif baring the word "thanks" etched into the design (from the New Season, New Wonder Unity Stamp Set).  I also wanted to use The Girl's Paperie Jubliee collection...so here's what happened:

Aren't the colors yummy and summery?!?  Every time I glimpse at that gorgeous sorbet plaid paper, I have a flashback to childhood.  There must have been a skirt or a shirt that I wore similar to the pattern...I can't quite put my finger on it though (it'll hit me one night, about 1 A.M. when I'm trying to sleep).

I have an adorable tutorial to show tomorrow...stay tuned!  It's easy, easy and just in time for your back-to-school, Halloween and Christmas projects :)  If you've collected tin or clear pails, this is  your chance to put them to use.

I'm slowly adding photos to my new blog pages: Layouts and Paper Projects.  Years-worth of crafting have lent to a passel of photographs...whew, I've been a busy, busy girl

Headed out to the grocery store to pick up a few things for taco salad tonight.  We haven't visited with the parents in well over a week and the kids are thinking they need a dip in the tepid swimming pool.
See ya'll tomorrow!
