Let's Take A Trip!

We took the baby to visit his grand parents in Alabama last year.  This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to scrap the pictures that I took of him during the car ride.  He got bored and to amuse himself, he decided to bite his toes. lol!

I used a designer paper from Pink Paislee's London Market paper pack for my background.  The inked paper behind the photos is from K&Co.  The font and arrows were cut at 2 1/2" using the Summer Vacation Cricut cartridge.  I added some flowers from Sassafras Lass, a Tim Holtz token as a flower center, a car image from Graphic 45, and a label cut using a Spellbinder's die for journaling.

What's the BUZZ?

This challenge's requirement is to make a summer-themed card or project featuring the colors yellow, black and white.  I was thinking of a bee, but since I am a butterfly/dragonflyholic (it's a new word that I coined) :-) I decided to feature my other favorite winged creature.  I cut the main image at 2 1/2" using the Damask Decor cartridge .  The contrasting polka dot papers used were from GCD studios and DCWV.   It was pretty late at night when I made the card and I noticed the next morning that the "white" was more cream.  I decided to submit it anyway, since I liked the slightly aged look.  :-) I punched the corners using a Martha Stewart punch, added pop dots and Viva Decor faux pearls and... voila!  We have a summer-themed card.
