a little scrappiness

hi, there!  i thought i'd update with some new layouts.  this summer has been incredibly hectic, but last week & this week, i've had time to actually scrapbook.  (i've also been rearranging my space a little.  will share pics of that when i am done!)  AND.  i'm only 4 weeks behind on project life.  (only!  ha!)  it really has just been that kind of year.  i was about 8 weeks behind.  (YIKES!)
 this one is, by far, my current favorite layout.  i used the studio calico kit elmwood park, plus add ons.  (the arrow stamp is from the socal kit.)  i cut out the words on my cameo using the blackout font.  (it's a free font.  just google & it will pop up!)  The "today" is cut out using the ali edwards free font.  i just backed the cut out words with pattern paper.
 attempting to dig into the ridiculous amount of barely touched kits, i made this one with daydream believer.  i didn't think i would like those butterflies, but i do!
 another new fav.  the stamping took what felt like forever (probably more like 45 minutes).  but i love the way it turned out.  the speech bubbles just seemed like a good fit for this topic.  
 another layout from socal.  it also uses some of the new cut files from studio calico. the title font is called branboll ft. found it while searching for a free baseball font that included a swoosh.  (love the swoosh!)
 this one is pretty simple.  i do love the colors!  another one from elmwood park & add ons.

if you made it this far, congratulations!  you deserve a medal for reading this far!  ha!  hopefully, i will have more to post soon!
