DCWV June Stackaholic Layout using Watercolor Stack Won for June 2016

Siesta Key Layout was a breeze with the beautiful papers of the stack called Watercolor. I did use a Burlap stack turquoise piece as the mat of my pic as well. Some of the flamingo circles are popped up with 3L Adhesive.
    This is my family at sunset on Siesta Key Beach. I am always using my tripod for these nice pics of the WHOLE family!
This won for the 2016 June Stackaholic Layout sketch challenge. Seen here

Summer Coffee Lover's Card

Clearsnap have fabulous products and these are some that I used to make my card. I used the Smooch Spritz in 2 colors to spray the doily and white flower. Also embossed the tablecloth with the Mix'd Media Inx, and clear embossing powder. Used Webster's Pages pattern paper for the card base, to match the coral colors of the cup.  Stamp is from The Cat's Pajamas Stamps.  I am entering my card in the
Clear Snap June Challenge-Used 2 Smooch Spritz's from Donna Salazar's set as seen above, on doily and white flower. Also, used her Mix'd Media Inx embossed on the card itself, as the "tablecloth".

Garden Layout

There's my bird!

Webster's Pages Botanica papers, with several fussy cut layers popped up, Martha Stewart border punches for extra frills, and Colorbox ink in Chestnut roan to add a vintage feel to the page. Also, seam binding twisted after adding a bow. Had wanted to have a double layout for another page, and love how it turned out! Hope you do too!
Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday Challenge #148-I felt my garden layout matched up with all my fussy cut flowers, post to one side and the bow from the magazine cover too. Same colors as the inspiration piece too.

This picture is of the gentleman that I buy my apples from when I travel to Webster's Flea Market. It is located in a small, sleepy town in north central Florida. Really it is in the middle of no where! Google maps is the best way to find it! You must arrive very early, like 7:30-8am and expect sellers to start packing up at noon. I recommend you not go on Summer days because of the heat!! Nor when raining because it gets muddy. Best days are in the fall, winter, and spring. Christmas seems to be less people when I've gone. Shop the antique section in the back first. Then move your car to the front and pack coolers with the fresh produce you purchase. Taste things before buying due to such a selection. I love that it is fresh but buyer beware. Some of it is not local and even from out of the country.

Krazy Kreations Dressy Tag

Fun tag kit using Krazy Kreations supplies. Love the relaxing feeling of putting it together. Loved meeting the owner and helping her in her classes at Scrapbook and Stamp Expo that was here in Orlando, this last weekend. Saw many of her wonderful supplies and am in awe of her drawings that turned into fabulous stickers.
