It's another beautiful Summer day here in my neck of the woods !! I am hoping that means summer is actually here to stay !! I know that might seem strange to a lot of you, but if you are from Newfoundland - you totally understand what that means. LOL We are going to 2 events today - a baby shower and a birthday party, so I will be super busy ! I am still hoping that I can do some stamping though ! I am so close to getting my Inky Fingers Club projects all finished - so excited ! Remember, fi you want to see these awesome projects (along with 13 of my fellow Designer's stuff) you totally want to sign up for this fun Summer Session !!

I am sharing with you another scrapbook page today !! I know I don't show a lot of them on here, but I just love scrapbooking ! I just love making these beautiful pages to showcase special pictures and memories. If you haven't tried scrapbooking - I highly recommend it !!
Isn't that cute !?! I LOVE that picture of Jackson. It was taken in our back yard in March when the snow was just melting. I matched the red of his coat to the retired color Riding Hood Red and then picked the rest of my colors to go with that. I love the combo of Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo and Soft Suede. I used the awesome duo of the Wonderfall stamp set and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to create my leaves. I die cut them first, and then stamped onto each of the cut outs. So easy ! And very beautiful. I gathered them together in a bunch and adhered them to my photo. I used a Bronze Designer button (vintage) tied with some vintage 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon to dress them up. Love those buttons !! I don't have many left, and I use them sparingly. LOL
I stamped my Island Indigo background with a leaf from the Wonderfall set in Island Indigo ink. I stamped along the edge of my Soft Suede piece of 12x12 with the Woodgrain background stamp, in Soft Suede ink. Love that fun touch of woodgrain ! I really wanted to use the awesome Woodgrain embossing folder as well, so I used my Hearts Collection Framelits to cut out some hearts, and then embossed them. Love that texture!! I used some non SU stickers for my title - You'll Be In My Heart Always. I love using lyrics from songs for my titles! I used my beloved Color Spritzer Tool on this project as well, love those splatters ! I think this page is really a great layout - love all the uses of leaves and woodgrain. Really goes well with the picture !!
Thats is for me today ! I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook layout. Thanks so much for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
