Sunshine and Banners

Even though it is chilly outside and we are getting ready to celebrate the quintessential Fall holiday here in the US, I have a summery layout to share with you today. It's my take on Creative Scrappers Sketch #131.

Jumping Waves

Don't you just LOVE Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness line? Ahhh . . . perfect for a summer layout about two of my bestest guys.

A paper pieced sun and a chipboard banner. What could be better? Well, okay, maybe a quirky little butterfly. And just so you know, I did not stitch the edge of my layout. I am terrible with my sewing machine. I faked it! I punched holes around the edge of the page and then drew in the stitches. Pretty impressive, hun?

Awwwww . . . that daddy fox and kiddie fox are just too sweet. I don't think I've ever seen fox chipboard. Just another reason to love Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to go by Creative Scrappers and check out the sketch. It is fabulous! And the rest of the DT created some gorgeous layouts, as always. Have a great week!
