Summer Sunshine layout

Happy Monday!  I hope you've been able to find some avenues to enjoy a bit of summertime, despite the pandemic.  It's been sunny and hot the last few weeks here in Kansas City, and since we aren't taking a summer vacation this year, we've been trying to enjoy all the sunny days here at home.  My adventures this summer will be tame, but I am finding satisfaction in the quieter pleasures like gardening, sitting on the porch reading, and swimming in the pool.  It's definitely made me appreciate being home in a new way!

Our BBTB2 theme for the next two weeks is the summer solstice-show me the sun.  I had this fun pink paper I've been wanting to use, so my layout is all in shades of pink and brown.  I was trying to make a layout for pictures of relaxing by our pool.  I used two of the CTMH collections with cricut that are favorites of mine, You Are Here and Artistry.  You can see all the fun design team projects that are full of sunshine over at BBTB2 and link up a new cricut project.

wedding or anniversary

Happy Monday!  I've missed getting to be crafty recently, as a member of my extended family had to have emergency major surgery a few weeks ago and I've been helping take care of them when not working.  I wanted to participate in our BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks despite being a little pressed for time, so I managed to get a pretty uncomplicated layout done quickly.  Our challenge theme for the next two weeks is weddings and I had pics from a wedding last year in our extended family waiting in the pile!  I cut the rings from the CTMH You Are Here cartridge and used a font called Shorelines downloaded from Da Fonts for the words.  The cool feature of this font is being able to have the flourishes on the end letters that you see in the names.  I thought it looked really pretty, though it was a bit tricky to get cut out in the gold foil paper.  I hope you all have a great week and you can see the rest of the design team projects over at BBTB2 and link up one of yours too.
