Sunshine/Fall

I made this LO for Scrapping Everyday Miracles' September Main Challenge (http://scrappingeverydaymiracles.blogspot.com). The twist was to use 3 or more leaves so I used 2 leaves on the corners, a cluster in the top left corner, and a palm tree in the bottom left corner! We were to make a LO of our favorite season and my favorite is summer! I chose this PP from Me&My Big Ideas Sunshine Speciality Pad. The picture is from last summer when I went to Atlantic Beach with Julie, a friend from work. The pic mat and the paper on the tag are both from Basic Grey Life of the Party 6x6 paper pad, the ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon-there's some leaves on the flowers, the flip flops are Stickeroni from Hallmark, the corner/leaves bundle is from ATD Super Sticker Pack Safari set, the palm tree/umbrella are from a sticker set from Michaels (I don't have the original packaging so I forgot the manufacturer), the twine is from my stash, the rainbow bling is from my stash, and the flower is KI Memories Paisley Parade Epoxy Fasteners. I used Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares to adhere the ribbon, pic mat, and tag to the layout. I was trying to get a picture of the ocean from where I was sitting and later worried about the umbrella because it was very windy and I was afraid the umbrella was gonna come out of the whole it was in. I was thinking when I placed the palm tree on my layout that it would have been nice if a palm tree was on the beach instead of the umbrella! There's no shade whatsoever on our beach! Here's a close-up of the tag:

 I traced the paper using the chipboard tag that I glued the paper to with Craft Smart glue stick (it is acid free so I used it on my picture as well).
I made this tag for Miriam's Crafting Blog 4th Monthly Challenge- Red and Orange Color Palette (http://miriamscraftingblog.com/1/post/2013/09/miriams-crafting-blog-4th-monthly-challenge-red-and-orange-color-palette.html). The tag the PP is glued to is from my stash and I used it to trace on the PP and cut it out. The PP is Studio G 12x12 Paper Pack ($0.97 at Walmart- 7 sheets), the bling is from my stash, the pinkish orange sticker is ATD Super Sticker Pack Family set, the fall sticker is BoBunny Falling For You (that I've had in my stash since my LSS closed before Michaels came to town), and the ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon (also been in my stash for a long time). TFL and I hope you had a great day! I remembered the events from 9-11-01 today- hard to believe it's been 12 years! I'm recording a program on The History Channel about a guy that knew the planes were going to hit The World Trade Center and ends up dying in the aftermath.
