Fun In The Sun!

Hello!  I hope you all had a fabby weekend!  We had a busy but fun weekend :)  It has gotten HOT down here in Florida, so we had some pool time and went blueberry picking down at a friend's farm which the kids loved!  I even got to go wedding dress shopping with a good friend of mine, and we found her the PERFECT dress!!!  It was so much fun! 

Speaking of fun, I had a blast playing with my new Verve stamp set called Relax :)  I made this for the Embellish Magazine Color Challenge to use Sea Foam, Brown, Green, and Terracotta.  We were also to add dimension to our projects, so I cut out and popped up the sun, the palm tree, and the sentiment panel.  The dp is October Afternoon Fly A Kite and the layout is this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

I love this dp. It is so pretty! I like the popped up sun and palm tree. And I'm jealous of all your heat. Well, truth be told I can't handle Florida heat and humidity. But I'd like something besides rain and gloomy weather!

How fun to go wedding dress shopping. Especially finding the perfect dress!!!
