Summer Lovin'

Hey friends! Over on the Paper Issues Blog this week, we are featuring projects that celebrate Summer! The best part? Simple Stories is providing a great giveaway! Head over to the Paper Issues Blog to get the scoop on how you can win this lovely prize pack!

For my Summer Lovin' project, I used the Paper Issues Sunshine and Snowcones kit that I got to design. The papers and embellishments in this kit are perfect for Summer pages! (Hello!! Its called Sunshine and Snowcones for a reason!) There are a few kits left - and if you use my coupon code ( JUSTME) for 20% off! Score!

Ok, back to my layout...LOL

This photo is an old one  of John. He looks so small in it, and now? Yeah now he is practically a teenager. John has a real passion for all things water related, and this page acknowledges that! Everything from this page (excluding the turquoise twine at the top) came for the Paper Issues kit. Even the 'love the moment' stamp. Yep. I told ya this kit rocks!

Have a great Sunday afternoon! Alex and I putting in a new water feature in our backyard. Pretty sure that means there will be swearing, lots of eye rolling, and atleast a six pack of beer will be drank. lol

For those of you who won't be subjec to the tedious work that will be going on in my backyard (thats you!), feel free to cruise the Paper Issues Blog Hop. Everyone on it is sharing their favorite Summer projects. I bet you will be inspired!

 Melissa - thats me ;)
