Summertime Smiles

Hello Scrappy Friends! So I'm sharing today a NEW layout that I made for just ME! 
I make sooooo many DT projects and many of them I mail out to the company, so sometimes it makes me a little sad that I don't have them for myself....OK I suppose I could make another one just like it....but for some reason it NEVER seems to happen??? So Im so happy to be keeping this one of my little Roxy and a super recent photo taken of her just a few days ago.... :) 
I thought since it is summer and she is smiling....."Summertime Smiles" became the title.... :) 

So here is a super duper old stamp that I have that is a clock face....I believe it is from Heidi Swapp.
I added a little black brad in the center and I used "Lacey Circles" and "Lacey Ovals" x 2 behind the clock with a doily. I also had my "lily" stamp out from Heartfelt Creations from my prior layout and I figured I should take a break from my favorite Rose

OK, so I had to add 2 little "Bitty Blossoms" in polka dot paper....I couldn't help myself! 
The title is Microsoft Word for Mac...just used 2 different fonts on the "Fancy Tags 2" I just LOVE that diecut and I just cut out the center and saved the rest to place behind the prima flower and bling.

So here is the Prima bling that I have had for a super long time from my DT work with "Scrap That" I have always wanted to use it and I could never seem to find that right layout for it...until now.....
So you can also see where I used the leftover part of the "Fancy Tags 2" I just couldn't let it go to waste...right? LOL

So, some more flowers here and a close-up of my Roxy's eyes...I sure wish I had green eyes! 
Also, wanted to show that the Premade flowers are all the same except they have been sprayed with smoochies from Donna Salazar. OK, now don't laugh....but I will tell you I was digging around in my flowers for a perfect match....and I have lots of these white flowers that I bought from Michael's Wedding Section. Then I thought...DUH! Just color them! I don't know why I have never thought of that before? I have colored the paper just not pre-made flowers....silly ME! I used Donna's "Tea Party" and "Praline & Cream" I also framed the photo with Spellbinders "Romantic Rectangles"... and made my second circle above the polka dot paper (Bo Bunny) with Martha Stewart Corner Punch....I tell you once you get the hang of it, you will not be able to stop making them...Here you can see a video tutorial made by Lisa Gregory at her blog "Such a Wonderful Mess" 

I hope you feel refreshed like eating a piece of watermelon....because that is my color theme for today. 
Ahhhhhh! Have a great day!
