Soakin up the Sun

The sketch this week from The Scrappiest.

The challenge this week at Scrap Tiffany is to use brads - yikes I haven't used mine in a long time.  Can you find them here?  All the pattern paper, including the clouds and words are from the American Crafts Heat Wave collection which is available at Scrap- Mart.  The journaling block is from Unity and the arrows are from The Cutting Cafe, the Assorted Arrows set is so versatile I love it.  The bikini is cut with the Life's a Beach cricut cartridge.  I cut the clouds from some of the pattern paper and then I embossed them. This also fits the Wee Memories challenge - Summer Fun.

I also made another card with the colors from Curtain Call, told you I liked these colors, and I incorporated the Little Red Wagon challenge - use a tree.  All stamps are from The Cutting Cafe except the tiny sentiment (PTI).  First I made the background paper with the Tiny Dots, the paper and tab are from the new set called Jot it Down - lots of goodies in this one - I will use it over and over again I know it; finally the tree is from the Beautiful Trees set.

Such a fun and cheery layout, Laurel! Love the brads on the bikini...very clever! My girls are trying to do handstands now in the pool. Great job with the pointed toes. LOL

The card is a beauty, too. The paper piecing on the trees looks very neat as does the ruler ribbon.

I'm always impressed with how unique and original your projects are Laurel!
