A Slice of Summer

Morning everyone!!! I sure hope you had a great weekend and are now ready for a new challenge at Paper Playtime. We have been challenged to create a project using Pattern Paper. I knew that I wanted to make a layout page for summer. Just wasn't sure what direction I wanted it to go in. I decided to first pick out my pattern paper. Went shifting through my stash and came across this tree paper. So I went from there. I knew there had to be a great tree in the Silhouette Store. Went a hunting and found this great tree. It is #28874. Needed some clouds and a sun. So I went with #40584. Wanted to have a journaling card. Found this one that is in a set of four, #41874. I thought it was perfect since it had the cutout of the sun and cloud. I cut it three times in each color. I wanted to fill in the cutout of the sun and cloud with the right colors instead of the trees from the paper showing through. The sentiment is from the 'Fun in the Sun' stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps.  I am going to put my photos on the tree. I think that will be cute. I think my favorite part is the red swing. I remember having a tree swing when I was growing up. So much fun!!!
We sure hope you will join us for our 'Pattern Paper' challenge. You will have until Sunday, August 4th to link up a creation. Who knows, you just might be one of the lucky winners this go around. We have two sponsors. The first is The Robin's Nest with a $15 gift certificate. There are some awesome stuff that you can choose from. Our second sponsor is My Craft Spot with a choice of either 1 metal die set or 1 stamp set. Kimberly has some awesome stamps and die sets to choose from.
Head on over to Paper Playtime and check out what my DT Sisters created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a new project using 'Pattern Paper'. Can't wait to see what you make!!
Hope ya'll like my layout!!!! :)
