This is the 13th layout with the July Either Way kit from Scraptastic. I really enjoyed playing with this kit and used up pretty much every last bit of paper!! For this layout, we are going back to my summer vacations :
What I did that was new for me: I thought I would add a little feature to my posts. I am so inspired by all of you - all my friends on facebook, You Tube and on your various blogs - that I have been trying new-to-me techniques, or placement, or embellishments on my pages. On this page, I added some clear & black speech bubble stickers right on the photo. I thought I was quite clever LOL, and that it fit right in with the title. What do you think?
The supplies: I was pretty much down to paper scraps for this one, but managed to get it done. The Kraft cardstock is from my stash since I had already used up both sheets that came with the kit. The items from my own stash add-on are:
- Wood veneer from a previous kit, or from one of my Citrus Twist PL kits.
- The enamel dots are from My Mind's Eye
- The mist is Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Coffee Shop
- I used two alphas for the title : the larger font is from Elle's Studio in Kraft (they may have come in this kit?? or if not they came in a previous one) and the smaller letter stickers have been in my stash for a couple of years now - they are from Glitz Design. Time to get them used up :)
The story : I called this one "Chatting with the neighbours" LOL. Our little family house is right in the middle of country farmland so a lot of the neighbours are four-legged. Our neighbour to the left has cows and horses! Sometimes, it is the cows that are in the field adjacent to our house and sometimes it is the horses. I love just sitting under a tree in the afternoon and watching the animals interact. It is very relaxing and sometimes quite funny. This summer, it was mainly the cows that were close and there were quite a few playful calves as well. I walked up to the fence between the two properties and zoomed in a little for the photo. They are not quite that close really when I am sitting under a shade tree facing the garden.
You made it to the end once again :) :) Thanks so much and have a wonderful Friday and I will be back on Sunday with the last layout from this kit.
