Stampers with Attitude ~ Summer/Vacation Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!!  The Stampers with an Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing art work with a summer / vacation theme.

If you are just hopping here from MELISSA ROBINSON ’S Blog  then you are in the right spot.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultant at the end of my blog.

I love the Seaside paper pack and we have been lucky to go on a beach vacation the past three years.  The last two were to visit family.   I grew up going to the beach so I wanted our son to have that experience too.  We went to Watercolor FL in 2013 to stay at my brothers house.  So I knew this paper pack would be perfect for the beach photos from this trip.  Mind you or trip was not quite the beach trip we hoped as it poured everyday with flash floods.  So we took what little beach time we could.

SummerVacation Layout ~ Seaside ~ Treasured Friendship ~ catscrapbooking.comI used the stamp set Treasured Friendship to create the accent points using the shells.  I stamped them and then added some color using our watercolor pencils.  I then inked the edges using Champagne and Desert Sand.

SummerVacation Layout detail ~ Seaside ~ Treasured Friendship ~ catscrapbooking.comI cut the tittle using my Cricut Explore ~ I have to admit the one thing I do not like is trying to remember what font was used after I have selected it and un-grouped then welded.  I cannot for the life of me remember which one I choose (sorry).  I did cut it twice using two different patten papers.

Now it is time to hop on over to very talented MELINDA EVERITT’s Blog and see what wonderful creation she has for you.  Here is the full list of participants:
