Kickin' Back

Today my friend, Jenn Shurkus asked me to join her as one of her featured artists in the month of July.  I was honored to be asked by her to participate.  Jenn & I got to know one another when she was guest designing for Stampotique and then joined the team.  We've kept in touch since and I've followed her creative journey.

Since July is mid-summer we are going with a summer/tropical theme and I am using a new stamp set that was just released this month from The {Stamps}of Life called Island2Visit.

Susan Liles had a link for these very cool downloadable library cards here and I wanted to incorporate that into my creation so eventually it can go in my Project Life book.

This is a pic of my oldest who was down in Florida for Spring Break with his friends and their dad. The last 2 years he's been invited to go and has non-stop fun and they do a ton of swimming.  We miss him, but know he's been well taken care of having a blast.

Jenn is having a lot of friends join her this month, so you should hop on over say "hi" to her and see what tropical creations are happening over there.
