vixen’s page just jumped right out of the gallery! The typography in the page is just amazing and the way she speaks about gratitude is wonderful

I am so grateful to the Vanilla Bees for choosing my Gratitude page for their winning challenge layout, that I thought I should provide you all with the wordart that I used (as the author is unknown to me, if anyone does know who created this, please let me know so that I can attribute the proper credit)

let your light shine

okay, I live in the mountains and there are no beaches and I know one person with a swimming pool so 99% of all the summer kits available are usually not very scrappable for me, but today I broke open the piggybank and bought this adorable mini kit by Jennifer Barrette (as we do have fireflies here) I luv the happy colors and the shabby chic feel to it, and it was 20% off lol I'll be sure to post a page here as soon as I get one done (I suppose since I finally, after a year, downloaded the pdf file for my camera and can get out of auto-mode) maybe I can get some firefly photos, that would be kewl!

oh, as a side note, I was thrilled this was a mini kit, don't know about you, but sometimes a page kit is right up my alley! there aren't 50 papers that I don't need and so many elements that rather than try and decide oh what will look best, I will simply pick out a button and a ribbon and call it quits lol
