Oh Hello Summertime!

Ah, summertime. Sweet summertime!! Even though I don't get the whole summer off with my kids, I still love it. I love to see their sunburned cheeks from playing at the pool all day, love to see faces stained with cherry popsicles and love the easier pace of the summer. No soccer practice, no baseball, no homework. What could be better?

I was super excited to grab some of the new Bo Bunny Barefoot & Bliss papers from Scrapbook Express. They are awesome papers for scrapping summer!!!

This photo is from two summers ago and I actually scrapped it once before. And hated the layout. So I'm trying again and i'm much happier with this one! The colors of these papers are amazing and I love all fun matching chipboard embellies.


Cute little sand bucket and I love this sun!


I also overlapped the Thickers a bit for the title and of course, baker's twine. My lovely addiction. At least baker's twine is no calories, can't say that for peanut butter cups.


What do you love about summer? Has summer come to you yet? Hope you have a great summery weekend, friends!

This is awesome, I love that it's more muted than most of the beach layouts you see! Would you consider submitting to Practical Scrappers for our beach feature that we're doing next week? If you would send just a link to it practicalscrapperslayouts@gmail.com
