Summertime Croppin' & A Little RAK

Hey yall!! How are you today? Good I hope!!! Before I do anything today, I wanted to tell all of you how much I appreciate all of you coming by my blog! It means the world to me! Well, the other day, I hit 100 followers on my blog! I was just so amazed! When I started blogging, I never imagined how many kind people I would meet!!! I am just so appreciative! So, for all of you, I wanted to host a RAK (random act of kindness). So if you will comment on this post, I will put your name into a random drawing for a scrappy package from me filled with all sorts of goodies. I will leave this RAK open until the end of the month!! Also, when I announce the winner, I will post a picture of all the goodies!!!! I will announce the winner on the 1st! So check back to see if it is you!!! Thanks yall!!!!!

I wanted to share with you the layouts I did finish up during the crop. I did not get much at all done. My hand/wrist has been bothering me for 3 days now. The past two days, I can't open it all the way or close it. So scrapping has been pretty much out of the question. What scrappin I did do, Brandon had to help me toward the end. I couldn't even push down the trimmer blade and slide it. I had to hold the paper and Brandon did the trimming. It was pitiful I tell ya! So anywho, I've been resting my hand as much as I can these past few days. I haven't even been on the computer much. I miss all the scrappy boards and stuff. So I hope I will be ready to go again soon!! Here are the two layouts that I did finish up.

"Natural Beauty"
This layout is of my good friend, Tara's, little girl Olivia. She is just such a little cutie!!! I used Home Accents for the petals. I also added some stitching, ribbon, a flower, a button, and a few other embellishments.


"Ode To Yellowbox"
This layout is called "Ode To Yellowbox." This one is for Laura Jean's Challenge on TS. We were to scrap something we love about summer, but it couldn't be people. I knew I had to scrap my Yellowbox shoes. I used Plantin' Schoolbook for the circles and Home Accents for the flourish. The sun, which I added the exploding technique to, was cut from Doodlecharms. I also added in some stitching and ribbon. Here is this one:





Also, I was given 2 blog awards. It is actually the same award, just from 2 different people. Check out there beautiful blogs:


and


Here is the award:

Thank you both so much for thinking of me!!!

Also, I am to send this on to others. I am gonna change it up a bit. I have so many regulars who are sooo kind to leave me their nice comments. You all know who you are. So if you see this, please know that this award is for you. Put it up on your blog if you want! I just want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!!!! You are just wonderful!!

Thanks, as always, for stoppin' by! Take care of yourselves!!!

Aymee,
You are such a big enabler. I am now the owner of not one but two new border punches!! Swiss cheese and Drippy Goo have both made their way into my collection. Don't show me any more cool punches until after my vacation or I won't have the funds to go on vacation! Now I am waiting for info on where I find the yellow box! hehe
