Look Here

Good Morning to you :) Can you believe this is the last day of August! Wow the summer season is just about over, while walking with the dog this morning I seen fallen leaves! and orange pumpkins in the garden! It's coming way to fast this year, I'm not anxious for fall.... I love the sun and all the fresh veggies in the garden. So I guess I better deal with it :) Atleast I have summer pictures to scrap for a bit in the fall.
Today's layout is one of the goodies of summer, the 1st corn of the season and was it delicious!
 I used my current counterfeit kit Easy Livin' for this layout, I was drawn to the blue on the plate and that made me think of a blue prompt over at Whimsical Musings, Challenge #204 – Tiffany Blue be inspired by Tiffany Blue.
So I took the left over blue in my kit and also used some blue stamping for the title and the embellishments for this layout. I used the sketch over at The Memory Nest for the layout: sketch #69
It was a fun sketch to work with, I have one more to do this week yet for the summer challenge Leslie is having over at The Memory Nest. 
So the beginning of this layout came from The 20 Project:  Day 17: Whittle down that giant stack of photos
 So I took the printed photos I just got from snapfish
 This stack of 99 prints
 and I separated them into piles for scrapbook layouts. It was fun to tackle this like this right from the start. Now I have plans for about 10 layouts maybe a few more depending on the large stack of reunion photos and how I handle those. After separating them we were to take one stack and create a layout :) Which I accomplished.
 Shimelle's class, a few of the 1st few prompts is about stamps and I had these stamps in my CKC Just Chillin' last month and it's been sitting on my desk so I knew I was using those and a set of letter stamps I received in a swap a long time ago that never saw ink :) So it was fun to do some stamping and adding it to my layout.
 My journaling I chose a silver pen, now thinking it may have been a bad choice, so may rewrite the journaling on the back of the layout. It says: 1st corn of the summer season we were just talking about it yesterday at the family reunion, Dan had asked about it. I thought it wasn't quite ready, but to my surprise, I guess it was. A great meal that night.
 More close up of the stamping. So glad to have this in the Album for 2016. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. Tomorrow is a new day, a new month and new inspiration from Counterfeit Kit Challenge :) Still have some of this month's kit to play with yet to finish out the week :) The weekend I'll be able to gather up the new kit :)


  1. Don't write off summer yet! We still have a few weeks :) Sounds like that was your own corn - how awesome. I guess it doesn't get any fresher than that!

  2. The yellow is set off so well by the Tiffany blue! Mmmmm...sweet corn!

  3. The sweetcorn looks really tasty, love that you've scrapped a page about it. I've been taking that Shimelle class too, she's such a down to earth scrapper with so many tips. Thanks for using the sketch from The Memory Nest.

  4. What a fabulous page!! That corn sure does look yummy!! Love the colors you used. Thanks for playing along Tina!!
