Maybe if I continuously post projects using Hometown Summer, the weather will catch my drift and actually warm up? Normally, our tulips would have flowered and withered by this point, but the weather is acting as if we skipped spring entirely and went straight into autumn!
In less than two weeks, my parents will be back in our basement. The kids are pretty excited since they usually get a ton of new books and other things upon their return (candy, ugh!). First Born specifically asked for a Qipao, a traditional Chinese dress. My dad's first reaction on the phone was... "I'm not sure they have these for kids." Seriously? Is it kinda like there's no cowboy hats for kids in Texas?
Here are a couple more projects using Work in Progress kit featuring Hometown Summer. Second Child really enjoyed the water slide on the cruise ship. She played on that thing for hours at a time. On the first day, she still wasn't sure about the water, the slide, but by the second day, she was fish in water. Her sister was too busy going up and down on the big slide, but this little one was just perfect for her :)
The title is cut from the "Graphically Speaking" cartridge. The water park on the cruise ship was actually named "Water Works." Perfect! I also cut out some waves and stacked them on top of each other. I used the same paper as the background so it fades into it, a little bit subtle, perhaps too subtle. I should have inked its edges :)
Here is a fun card using SRM Stickers sentiment. Just to be clear, dear weather, this card is not for you! You haven't been great whatsoever! But seriously, how cute is that little dude on the skate board? Check out his specs, lol, so adorable!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is going well. I will be back with a Color Room layout next! It's been a while!
