It's Summertime

It's another HOT one!  Best just to stay indoors and get some scrappy stuff done, if you ask me :)  
I created this sweet "It's Summertime" mini scrapbook album today and got it listed over at my Dot & Whimsy shop.  With all of the Design Team work going on, it's been quite some time since I've gotten anything added to my shops.  I took little bits of my left-over (and much loved) "100 Days of Summer" Kit from Back Porch Memories.  This kit has gone the mile!
 I put two house shaped chipboard pieces together to make the album sturdier;  in doing so, the edges looked a little rough!  I added baker's twine around the perimeter of each one...I believe it looks absolutely charming and reminds me of the striped topped cabanas :)

I'm now on Pinterest and pinning like crazy!  Knowing that I tend to have an obsessive type personality, I have to stave off after about thirty minutes (or so).  I love seeing all of the creative things out there and grabbing new ideas for crafty and food projects ♥  With Halloween quickly approaching (hey, I start decorating in September!) I'm really enjoying all the cute-sy stuff!

The hubs and I are off to get a bite to eat.  Nothing like some authentic Tex-Mex in the heart of beautiful downtown T-Town Yummmmm
Be back in a couple of days!
