Little Angler

Hey yall! How are you doing this evening? I am good. I just got back from going out with the hubby. He took me to Joann's AGAIN! LOL. I had to hit them up for some more paper while it was on sale AND guess what else he let me get? A new Fiskars craft mat! I have been wanting one forever! They have them 50% off this week girls! So if you are in the market...get to Joann! I got a 18" x 24" one for.....drumroll please......$11!!! So in all, I got the mat and 72 sheets of solid cardstock for about $24. You can't beat those prices! LOL. Anyways, I wanted to share with yall this layout. I am hosting a 'Lazy Days Of Summer' Challenge for our crop at Treasured Scrapbooking. All you have to do is scrap about something you or a loved one like to do during summer vacay. That's it. It can be swimming, fishing, taking a vacation, anything! So if you would like to, come on over to Treasured Scrapbooking and play!!! I am giving away a scrappy prize for this challenge to one randomly selected winner! So give it a go girls!!!

This layout is of Carter doing one of his fave summer activities...fishing. I used the New Arrival cartridge for the word 'little.' I also tried a new ribbon technique I've been tossing around in my head for some time now. I think I like it. LOL. I also used some ribbon for some 'fishies.' I did not want them to be too cutesy since he is a boy. Here it is:

Thanks for lookin'! I'm off to crop! I hope yall have a fabulous weekend! Take care!!!!
Pin It!

Really cute layouts! Love the ribbon techniques. Could you tell me, though, in your JoAnn's shopping adventure, what is a "Fiskars Craft Mat"? I am looking for something to stamp on that cleans up fairly easy. Thank you.

Sure Jodi! I bought the Fiskars self healing craft mat. I like to keep some sort of craft mat on my desk to work on so that any stains (ink, adhesive, paint, etc.) go on it instead of the desk. Here is a direct link to one so you can see:


Of course, things usually will wipe right off of this, but it is also reversible. So you could keep one sided for messier projects and then one good side and flip it over when need be.

Good luck! Thanks for stoppin' by my blog!!!
