Its Hot, Hot, Hot!

Summer is definitely here!  For the past couple of weeks we have been dealing with the heat and humidity that normally arrives in July and August.  If this has been a preview to the upcoming summer months, we are in for a hot time in the holler!  All those gardens that were put out early, survived the flood, and now looking so pretty may just cook now!  I have been piddling in my flower garden a little but mostly staying in my cool air-conditioned home and scrapping up a storm!  I had so much to catch up on that I barely knew where to start. Today, I'll begin with showing you some of the special layouts I created with some of the hot products by Tracey Monette-Clever Monkey Graphics:

  My grandson Isaac loves Diego television show so I used those lyrics with the cute childlike doodles of zoo animals in Taylor's Zoo.  I combined those elements with Tracey's Multifarious Elements and Papers from SBE.  Multifarious is tough and delicate all at the same time and worked perfectly for my theme!

The Collab-Grab Bag from Funky Playground Designs includes 13 Mini Kits in the most scrumptious colors and sunshine theme!  I used the Mini Kits from Tracey Monette and Charlize Creations for a cute page with journaling based on a favorite game of my grandchildren, I Spy.

The Dentist's Chair is a collaboration kit by Tracey and Alissa Jones filled with all the major aspects of dentistry, orthodontics, and the tooth fairy but it can be used for so much more as well!

And last, I used the
Born on the 4th of July kit by Tracey Monette-Clever Monkey Graphics.
While dedicated to Independence Day birthdays, this kit also works great for all sorts of red, white, and blue layouts, and since this is the time of the year that most everyone is planning their summer vacations, I always am reminded of the fun times we used to have during our 4th of July vacations.  As I recall those special days in my mind, my heart led me to create this as my submission for the June Scrap From The Heart Challenge at RAKScraps.

As always you can get a full list of credits and layout descriptions in My Galleries
(Clickable blinkies over there on the right).  Until next time, stay cool and...

I was thinking, Wow, it's so great to be waking up to the sound of birds chirping! LOL! Took me a while to realize that it's from your blog! :)

You have a really nice blog, Debbie. What lovely layouts you have!
