Hi everyone!  The photo in this layout looks yummy and cool on a hot day like today.  If you look close enough at the fruit basket you'll make out the year 2015 made from watermelon.  The words "bits & pieces of yesterday" are fitting for the bits and pieces of fruit in the basket and are rubs ons from my stash.  The banner is a clear stamp set I inked up and colored in using copic markers.

Today I'm playing along with Jo's Scrap Shack.  This week's challenge is "anything goes".

Hi my crafty friends!  Wishing all my friends in the US a happy July 4th weekend.  I'm off work today and looking forward to a three day weekend, yippee!!!

I'm thinking about designing a calendar for 2016.  The family has been hinting at me that they didn't get a 2015 calendar and are hoping for one for 2016.  So I'll have to put my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with.

This a layout for my niece's graduation album.  I love the three tier stand in the photo they made to hold the cupcakes.  What a neat idea! 

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
