All New Day

Hello my scrappy friends!  I think it took me less then 2 hours to make this LO which is a record for me!  I'm a very ssllooowww scrapper...always.  I don't know why, several reasons I guess...picking out papers, choosing die cuts, inks, photo placement.  It just takes me time to make decisions, but that's ok.  At least I get pages done eventually!

So here is the LO I completed yesterday using lots of stamps and bright colors.  It's pictures of my daughter at the lake so bright colors work perfectly, especially with her brightly colored bathing suit!  I inked a white card stock paper, trying to mimic the water and sand background, using Tim Holtz distressed inks in iced spruce, salty ocean, corduroy and marmalade.  All of the stamps are from Oriental Trading clear stamp set, Summer.


I'm very happy with how this one turned out.  The stamps were perfect wording for it too!  I'm entering this layout into the following challenges:

> About A Girl July challenge - using the word NEW somewhere on your LO
> My Scraps & More mini challenge #1 - using 3 different stamps
> SWAT Drill #11 - using 80's Neon colors

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
