Summer is almost over.  My boy starts school on the 30th this year.  Earlier than normal.  We sure have been enjoying the summer.  Spending lots of time exploring and just enjoying our pool.  
Join me on the A Flair for Buttons blog with a fun summer layout.

I used Echo Park Summer Party available in the Paper Issues store for

August planning - mambi

Obviously I am a theme girl.  Whether it be a color combination or a holiday, I love to coordinate goodies that make me happy.  Today, I started with turquoise and pink and just so happened to add a bit of purple!  (My son's favorite color!)

More details on the me & my BIG ideas blog today!

Purple peace out!

Happy - Paper Issues

Well, I made a huge mistake the other day.  I started a layout using this cut file from Paper Issues.  I realized what I was using it for, was too early, the cut file hadn't been added to the store or shared with the public.  So, I sat on it for a bit.  This layout came together so quickly, because I already had the cut file cut and a Swag Bag is already coordinated.  WIN WIN!

So, today on the Paper Issues blog, you will see the team sharing how they used the new 
FREE CUT FILE.  Here is my take using the July Swag Bag!
