Taste of Summer – Pucker Up 2 pg. layout

A few weeks ago I spent the weekend creating with my Spa Girls in Virginia.

The Spa Girls are my CTMH sisters that all won the first CTMH Spa Retreat back in 2010.  All 9 of us that won this trip, connected in such a way that we continue to have a lunch reunion at Convention every year. 

Well, meeting that 1 time every year – didn’t seem like enough time together…enough time to continue to cultivate our friendships, brainstorm and listen to each other.  SO….last year we decided to get together for our own little retreat.  J

Jaime has graciously hosted us the past 2 years in her FABULOUS crafting studio! :)  Here we are --- 5 out of the 9---that could make it to this year’s retreat!  We are hoping to be able to have a time where ALL of us can be together once again…until then, the tradition of our annual weekend together continues!  

This year at our weekend, we were able to get our Taste Of Summer papers just in time to take to our retreat!  We were able to brainstorm together and shared ideas for layouts and cards which was so much fun!

The layout that I am sharing with you today was designed by Shannon Pelletier.  Shannon used CTMH’s Make It From Your Heart Vol 2, pattern #6 as her guide to put this layout together.  When she completed the layout, then we could add stamped images, embellishments & have some fun with it! J

Here is the layout Shannon designed….she used the Taste of Summer paper pack PLUS she added some Pear Cardstock – the perfect color combo!!

The ink colors I used on this layout were Thistle, Pear, & Canary.

Take a peek at how much “wow” the liquid glass adds to the fruit!! I often to use Liquid Glass as a glue…but in this case, it was PERFECT to use on this beautiful fruit as an embellishment!

Using a black journaling pen to sketch some lines around the edges, seems to making an appearance again.  I believe when I started scrapbooking 20 years ago, this was a common thing that you would see.  Isn’t it interesting how styles seem to make always come back around? J
