Happy Labor Day! + A New Layout!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday!  I know I am.  We just got back from a wonderful walk and now the boys are down for a nap.  Now I can have a little bit of "me" time before I have to start making lunches and dinners for the upcoming school week.  I do have one question though--Where did the summer go? It went by so quickly.  It seems like yesterday was the last day of school and we were so excited for the time off. 

I have been working hard on getting this summer scrapped and I just finished a new summer layout.  I have to say this again--I love Echo in the Park Summertime collection.  I have used it over and over again.  I bought the paper pack and I think I have used almost every piece.  It has just the perfect summer bright colors.  I just love it! With this layout I used a lot of the cardstock stickers that came with the collection pack. 

Fun In the Summer!
I really liked the scalloped border stickers and the journaling tags.  It makes it so easy to embellish the page.
For the title I used the Spellbinders Labels One and inked with distress ink and then used the cardstock alphabet stickers and some on the little circle stickers to embellish it.  I finally added just a hint of bling from the I Rock gems.
My mom brought over some bubbles one afternoon and we sat outside and played with the bubbles forever.  What is it about bubbles that makes everyone smile and have a good time? 

cardstock:  bazzill
Pattern Paper:  Echo in the Park Summertime
Die Cut Title:  Spellbinders Labels one
Inks:  Tim Holtz distress inks  barn door
bling:  I Rock gems
Embellies:  Echo in the Park

I hope eveyone has a fantastic day and I will be back soon!  Thanks for visiting!

I agree....bubbles at any age is an insant smile! The Echo Park is one I could use over and over. I love how you used the stickers and journaling all ties together but doesn't look like it is necessarily all the same! Very nice!

Your summer layout is so fun :)
I agree bubbles just put a smile on your face. I gently squeeze the dish soap bottle to see the bubbles pop out the top every time I do the dishes, yes its the little things that put a smile on my face :)
