Lazy Days of Summer

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog. Well this weekend went by way too fast yet again.  I have a few vacation days left and I think I will take the next couple of Fridays off, and get caught up on some scrapping J For this layout I used the sketch from Dusty Attic and this weeks palette at TCR. The photo is my DH and daughter a couple of weeks ago...we had just did my dad's ashes and there was lots of family there...a very special day and I love this photo. I went to the local church thrift shop on my way home from work one day this week and picked up a few doilys…I used one of them on this layout. I fussy cut out the background paper and did some masking, distressing and inking.



I used a few DA pieces on this layout. I first painted them all white, than I added some smooch spray to them. I finished them off with some gems. In this close up you can see the masking behind one of the DA pieces, and that gorgeous thrift shop doily J

Here is another one of the doily and some DA…these doilys were just a steal of a deal..I think I paid like 25 cents for each of them.



Here are a couple more close-ups of the DA and flower clusters. I just love the DA piece that the title is on.


Ok well that is it for today. This is going to be a busy week for me. Sneak peeks are in a few days for the gorgeous September Scrap That! kit, and then the reveal day blog hop is on August 26th. We have fantastic prizes to be given away and I hope to see all of you at the hop J Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
