June's Imaginisce Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Well it is that time again.  Time for theImaginisce Monthly challenge.  I love the challenges here.  This month was really fun!  Here is the information on the challenge:

Here's the criteria:

- Create a card, layout or off the page project using atleast 75% of Imaginisce products.
- Use the delicious picture from Pinterest as your inspiration
- Somewhere on your project you must incorporate some of the lyrics of the Cliff Richard song, Summer holiday
- Upload your project using the Linkitz at the bottom of this post by Saturday, 25th June.

The Song:
Summer Holiday
We're all going on a summer holiday
no more working for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on our summer holiday,
no more worries for me or you,
for a week or two.

We're going where the sun shines brightly
we're going where the sea is blue.
we've all seen it on the movies,
now let's see if it's true.

Everybody has a summer holiday
doin' things they always wanted to
So we're going on a summer holiday,
to make our dreams come true
for me and you.
for me and you.

Well here is my take on the challenge

Fun and Laughter

I loved this challenge.  I took these adorable pictures of Michael over the weekend at Jack's last soccer game.  Michael had a great time sitting in his chair and watching the game.  I had such a fun time taking pictures of him and Jack.  I knew these pictures would be perfect for the challenge.  I have been wanting to use the line Berrylicious for such a long time now.  I bought it when it first arrived at my lss but haven't had a chance and this paper was perfect for the challenge with all the pretty green, yellow,  blue, and orange colors.  (Perfect for the challenge right?) 

I am really into the sun and clouds on my layouts and this was a perfect way to add some embellishments to the page.  I used my silhouette to cut the sun and clouds.  I stamped the clouds with my hero arts stamps with my jenni bowlin ink (love love love these inks) and then used my SU marker to make a faux stitch.  I also got to use my bakers twine from the Twinery  and Paper Trey Ink on the little tags.  Love it!  The title came from the song and I used my silhouette to cut it.  I am really happy with how it turned out!

twine-the twinery, paper trey ink

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend-do you have any big plans?  The weather is supposed to be PERFECT here so we will be outside.  I can't wait!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back on Monday with a new layout! See ya then!
