Happy after the 4th!  I hope everyone had a great holiday!  I did!  Spent  time with family, had a brat and some red ripe watermelon, and splashed with Izzie in her little pool!  What's a hot day without some water to splash in and a great Americana tankini!   Can't wait to scrap this. 

Love the red, white and blue tankini!  She rocks it!  She even rocks her first major owie--that was also her first trip to the emrgency room last week.  Hopefully she doesn't have too many of those. 

I even got to sneak off to my scrap room for a while and was just tidying up when I came across this school layout of grandson.  I have to clarify here and state right up front--I do not scrap chronologically--I scrap whatever trips my trigger at the moment and stack the layouts up in a big box.  When the box is getting full, I go through and sort pages into their respective albums---more on that in another post as it is a whole project all by itself!  So this is definately an older layout, and older papers. 

The papers and chipoard embellishments were from The Paper Co. and I used an 8x8 die cut paper for the scalloped edges, and a zig zag Sizzix die (both the positive and negative  pieces).  This is one of the few layouts I've done with a printed paper as the base.  I usually cut up all the printed papers and put them back together on a solid cardstock base, but this worked.
