Three Things : Getting Ready for Summer


Around here, I am patiently waiting for summer.

We got in the mood this past weekend by finishing up cleaning out & organizing the garage (for the first time in my life I can actually park my car in a garage), bringing out the BBQ, grilling some ribs, mixing up some tropical rum drinks, and dreaming about an outdoor living space. I love watching Chris get excited about cooking - those Food Network grilling marathons can really get a person in the mood for mixing things up.

I am starting to think ahead to some summer paper projects (and putting together a class for Windy City Scrapbooking in Chicago on June 26th) and dreaming about lots of yellow and green and white and delicate florals. Here's a few things I am planning on playing with over the next couple of months:

1. Spring & Summer Rub Ons from American Crafts (and here they are in white too): Great for adding right onto a photo - words and icons - or embellishing a layout.

2. Sassafrass Lass Buttercream Bliss Sunshine Lollipop Patterned Paper : I love yellow. I also love how Sassafrass Lass added those great edges along the bottom of their papers which can be used as accents in your projects. The back side of this paper is a delicate polka dot pattern.

3. Tis the Season Posies from Fancy Pants : I think these hand crocheted flowers are adorable (notice the yellow one) and would make a great little addition hand-stitched or stapled onto a  minibook or layout.
