Dipping Into Summer

I don't get to scrap much these days.  My days are full with the kids, and I'm just too tired in the evenings.  I tend to crash and just go on Facebook and play Scrabble and Words With Friends!  The only time I've been scrapping for the past few months has been on Friday nights with the girls.  So I needed to find something that would kick me in the butt to get up and scrap!

I joined an 8-week challenge over at Let's Capture Our Memories.  We had to scrap about a season and have that season in the title.  I'm not sure this will qualify because it's not about a season, but I didn't want to make a layout that had no meaning to me, even for a challenge.  At least, it got me scrapping.

I also decided to combine this with a challenge from Love My Tapes.  The prize is assorted LMT goodies, and I would love that!  Their fabric and lace tapes are gorgeous!  We had to take inspiration from this picture:

It really inspired all the paper choices, from colour to prints.  The American Crafts Flair Badge in the "O" has pretty pink flowers on it.  And you can't see it very well, but there is a ruffled ribbon on the top left that reminds me of the softness of flower petals.  I love it!  Here's the link to the challenge if you want to give it a go.

-Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye Lush (Green Houndstooth RV); MME So Sophie Best Thing (Ledger Girl for matting); MME Be Loved (Beautiful Branches); MME So Sophie Pretty Girl (Persistent Bloom)
-American Crafts Foam Thickers (Rootbeer Float)
 -Journaling Spot: October Afternoon Stickers (Duck in a Row)
-American Crafts Flair Badge (Good Golly)
-Ribbon: Crate Paper Trims (Neighborhood)

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.♥
