A New "Issue" !

There's a new Issue up at Paper Issues Today!! The theme is "Endless Summer".  Basically it's an anything goes Issue as long as it's summer related!  We just can't seem to let go, even though we're well into the start of school.  Denial, Denial, Denial!!!!  Anyway, I decided to create a layout featuring this hysterical picture of my daughter and her friend, diligently doing their required summer reading on our flight to Florida this past August.

I just love the "annoyed teenager" look I'm getting from my daughter.  Classic.  For this layout I used a sketch I found on Pinterest from Citrus Twist Kits...a great source of sketches and ideas!  The papers, stickers and flair are from the Fancy Pants Memories Captured collection...such a fun all-purpose line full of great colors and patterns.  I also got to use my new Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine Spray!  Love the deep color!


I used some corrugated Thickers for my title and did some stitching through them....I liked how it coordinated with the black corrugated mat of my photo.

The thought bubble die is from the Lawn Fawn "A Birdie Told Me" set and the Really? stamp is from the Paper Smooches Slang Gang set.
