Sadly, I have that 'summer is coming to an end' feeling. I have loved our carefree days the past couple of months. Ryan is SO not an 'I Love School' kid and I'm not looking forward to our hectic mornings and the evenings filled with homework that will be starting soon. We have about a week of vacation left and I'm trying to savor every day. Yesterday we hit the local children's museum and we have a campout and a visit with friends coming up. Then, it's back to the grind...
Anyway, I've had some time to do a couple of layouts just for fun. This is the page I created for the Crate color challenge for August. I was so excited to see it featured on the Crate Blog yesterday!
I've had this picture sitting on my table for a while. Ryan loves to run outside with his socks on. On this particular day as I was telling him to put his shoes on, he lifts up his feet and says, 'But Mom, my feet aren't even dirty.'. Yeah, right! LOL So of course I took a pic and had to scrap it. I used a mix of several Crate lines and did some paint splattering (for the first time). It was a lot of fun!
The next thing I have to share is a card I made for the Once Upon A Sketch Aug. 15 sketch. I chose to use the design of the cluster on the sketch.
I used Echo Park's Victoria's Garden line on here. And I added a lot of stitching.
To create the banner I used the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool with the Banners attachment. It was so easy! I recently picked up a few other attachments and will definitely be using them again! I hate punching holes in paper to sew and this makes is waaaay easy.
Thanks to Once Upon a Sketch for having me this past month! It was a lot of fun!!
Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a good one. :)
