Tuesday Buttercups

Happy Tuesday!

I tell you we have been loving the "summer" like weather here in southern Ohio.  For the first part of this week we are supposed to be in the 80's.  You can bet I will be using the grill ever night to cook.  I know the grill is supposed to be the "guy thing" and hubby does grill out on Sundays when it is nice but I use the grill during the week to cook our dinners.  I love it-- fast, easy, little clean up-- right up my alley!!

Today I wanted to bring you another layout using the March kit from Burlap and Buttercups.  These are photos of Michael last Spring and I still haven't had a chance to scrap them.  I thought the paper and embellishments worked perfectly with the photos.

I made the background using my Silhouette.

Be sure to stop by Practical Scrappers today because today's inspiration is how to incorporate die cuts on your pages and cards.  There are some awesome examples.  I have a card up!  Stop on over and say hi! Thanks! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with my Wednesday Card.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Oh yes, the grill is our "best friend" for most of the year around here!! Anything to aid in easy clean up, no muss, no fuss. Your layout is adorable. Love the colors and the sewn seam are really eye catching, and the colors in the photos just pop!!

Mmmm, grilling sounds delicious! My apartment is putting in new grills, but they aren't here yet, so I'm super jealous!

I love the spring colors in your layout, they are perfect for a layout about ice pops (Oh no! Now I'm craving grilled food AND ice pops! Its going to be a long day at work!)

Love that background! Pretty layout. It's even up in the 80's here in Michigan, so grilling sounds perfect - at least for a few more days!

Awww what a sweet layout. He is sure enjoying his Popsicle.
We are getting unbelievable weather as well.
As for BBQing, I leave that up to hubby. I get bored and start weeding or raking and before you know it, smoke is coming out the back of the BBQ, lol

Catherine said...

Great LO...the colors in your papers really draw your attention to the photos of your son (which are adorable!).
