Hello and happy Thursday people!  So glad it's almost the weekend :)  I did a layout using Prima's Lyric line.  Some very pretty paper.  Lots of layering and textures in this one. The pic is from our cherry picking adventure last June. WOW, it's almost June again!!  I most certainly will go cherry picking again because they were so darn delicious and the pie I made with them was off the hook fantastic!  I'll tell ya what, I'll post the recipe for the pie and my homemade crust the next time I do it.  I no longer buy frozen crusts any more and the whole thing is very simple.

I digress, back to scrappiness :) I also used their Fairybelle and Pastiche line for matting the pic.  I have the 8x11 stack.  That line is just gorgeous too.  I pulled out very old rub-ons from Oriental Trading that I've had oh I'd say about 6 or so years.  Imagine this!  I have stash so old it's not even funny.  That's why Craft Hoarders Anonymous is the bomb! Go check out this month's challenge, Ribbon, Lace, and Twine Oh My!  Phew, a little a-d-d today, back to the layout.  I used cheesecloth and Tim Holt'z tissue tape underneath along with my Ayeeda Paint and some texture paste and stencil work.  Check it out -

Can you believe how cheesy these girls of mine are being?  They crack me up.  The flowers are all Prima, don't ask which line, I'm clueless just know they're Prima ;)  The little sayings in the top left corner of the pic was some printables I got from Pinterest.  That darn place is the BOMB!!  Inking and distressing, border punch on the top and bottom edge and a paper doily under it too.  I have embraced "whatever".  What does that mean you ask, or maybe you don't but I'll answer anyway, it's the letting go of worrying about where things go or how it'll look.  I just plopped down tissue tape, then painted over it, then did my mask then layered the mats.  Just go and be free, if what you put on gets covered up for the most part, don't stress just be :)  I also use some foam squares to pop up my pic and mats so I can tuck for more dimension and layering.  I hope you like it.

My body is slowing down as it always does at the end of the school year.  Running them and picking them up at three different times then if I have errands that day and chores boy I'm beat up. It is taking its toll on me so I start dragging about now.  One month left! And mama is coming with my two nieces for three weeks next month, I can't wait!

Thanks for coming by :)


  1. Such a fun, free-spirited's only right for you to create an equally fun and free-spirited layout to compliment it!
    I too, am looking forward to summer break. Between getting kids to school and now softball 4 nights a week, something's gotta give....something other than my sanity, that is!

    1. Four nights!?! Yeah, you're ready Court :) I can't help but love the lazy days of summer. To not HAVE to be anywhere is the best part :D

  2. Charlies Angels :D What a fun pic and I love the elegant way you have scrapped it. I have missed your fun layouts. THe down side of travelling :D The flowers are amazing.
