The one with Simple Stories

I hope you all are enjoying summer as much as Miss Maya is......
She loves to be outside but is a little too young yet to me out there on her own. I put her up on the window ledge when I was gardening a few weeks ago and she loved smelling the flowers and watching all the birds from outside the window!

I finally got some time to scrap over the weekend!! I was so excited to get my kit from Scrappy Chic this month - But then when I got home I remembered that my computer was out for repair --- will ALL my photos on it!!!!! So I decided to scrap some more photos from my childhood!

I used this great line from Simple Stories. It has great colors for summer and I thought they worked well with a vintag-y feeling I wanted for these photos from 1983.

I made a little cluster of embellishments - the hearts are BG chipboard pieces I covered in paper (a technique I haven't done in a while!!). Love the scale of the hearts. Added some ribbon and flowers too. The clouds are had cut and inked in a soft blue.

For those who read the previous post - Angela was correct about the Friends reference! Monica has a secret closet that she keeps all of her stuff in and its a messy closet with everything Smashed in :) Did I mention that I am a little bit of a Friends fan?....lol.

Hope you have a great week... and that the weekend comes quickly!!!

Love that cluster of embellishments -- and a great layout for those cute pictures!! I kinda thought you'd like that line (I have some, too!).

I wish I had a little more Monica in me -- minus the closet, of course! Off to tidy up....

Our cats are indoors but spend most of their summer days at the window, watching the birds, rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks! Love the layering and colors on your page. Seems like there is lots of new stuff at Scrappy Chic, probably should plan a shopping trip!
