Scrappy Inspiration

The August "Nature's Playground" Kit from Citrus Tree Studio has been revealed and it is beautiful. I really enjoyed working with the Jenni Bowlin "Front Porch" Collection and the GCD Studios "Chic Bebe" line. Cindy also included a little Maya Road Butterfly Album and lots of other goodies to make it a really fun kit. Here are my projects as well as my challenge layout for the month:

Here are some close-ups of the banner. For both designs I used glossy accents to give the butterfly's the shiny appearance of tile. The red ones I used the patterned paper from the kit and applied Pink Paislee Press-on's for my design and then covered the entire thing with the glossy accents. came out cool.

And finally here is my color challenge layout for the month:

I'm bummed that this picture is so dark because the cardstock base is that beautiful embossed cardstock from Bazzill. It's nice stuff!

Aww, vacation. Don't you just love them? Unfortunately, this week was not long enough. We spent time at the fair, went camping for a few days and now it's time to get back to work tomorrow. So here are a few photos of our adventures this week:

This is a picture of Gabe on the hospital float waiting for the fair parade to start.

Gabe and Grandma on the Ferris wheel. Cute huh?

We took Grandma and Grandpa's boat out for a spin on Monday and Gabe had a blast...

...and a few camping photos:

This last photo is what we did on Friday. The green chev made it's last voyage to Bend and we brought home this sweet ride:

Don't ya love it??
