Make a Splash!!

Even though we are back to school already, with the temps still in the 90's we feel like it's still summer, so I'm happily scrapping pics from summer (while enjoying the nice cool air conditioning in my scrap room!).  Today I am using the Sports Head on Watersports paper and the new Sports and Activities Swimming paper to scrap a few pictures of my daughter enjoying our friend's pool. 

I fussy cut the waves and bubbles from the Watersports paper, then used the wave as a template to create the wave cut on the swimming paper.  I added some splashes of glimmer mist in the background and some stickles on the the bubbles for some bling then topped it off with a few rhinestones, too.  A quick and easy, multiphoto page that came together in under an hour...just how I like them! 

Bagging It Times Two!

Decorating paper bags for gift giving is one of my favorite 
ways to present a gift.  You can decorate the bag just like 
you would a card, in the style of the person you are giving the gift.

Lily went to a birthday party this weekend for two dear friends.
They just happen to be twins.
Twins with two completely different looks, styles, and personalities.
I kept that in mind when decorating their gift bags.

Bri's gift bag is streamlined with summery colors & a matching layered flower.
