Summer Splash!!! August theme for

Happy August!!!  I say that almost tongue in cheek because anyone knows that living in the Lone Star state this time of year can feel icky sticky and sometimes miserable. After dealing with over 45 days of 3 digit temps many of us long for the cooler days where we can just enjoy the summer or whats left of it. Here is a layout of two precious grandsons who really know how to cool off. Its not often I do a multi-pic double page layout. I had lots of fun using up my older stash of goodies.Lots of Ki Memories papers and lace die cut, Cloud 9 Epoxy, (Did I mention I love anything acrylic or epoxy?) lots of Ranger Stickles, Karen Foster Card stock sticker, Making Memories paper flowers, and felt flower from stampin up. I added more epoxy and glitter to the chunky acetate alphas too.  My favorite thing was adding the dragonfly made with original sizzix die and more glitter and epoxy. I think its the jewelry on the page..

(Karen Foster cardstock sticker, Making Memories flowers and Stampin up flowers all glittered up)
this sweet This sweet dragonfly was made using the original sizzix die, a dab of stayzon ink on edges of scrap acetate. glitter glue and epoxy sticker dots and a little bit of wire and glossy accents to secure everything.

(Even though I love all things vintage, I also love anything translucent like acryillic, epoxy and glass look)
