Summer Joy

I know, I know. Now I'm getting a little ahead of myself talking about summer. But these are a couple of pictures from last Labor Day that I still love. So I thought I'd scrap them of course!

I'm also trying to channel my inner Maggie Holmes and trying to add more embellishments and a variety of them on my layouts. Jana gave some great advice about when she's stuck in a rut. She said she goes back through all her favorite LOs, and writes down what she loves about them. As a theme or pattern starts to develop, she realizes that THOSE are what she focuses on in her own creations. Sooo, after making my own list, it was Maggie Holmes' way of embellishing that I truly adored. This was my attempt after her inspiration.

Summer Joy



This ribbon technique is my favorite right now. I use Helmar Quick Dry 450 to adhere it.





k, that's all for today! Off to play in the sunshine! :D
