Lazy Days of Summer

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Macadamia Nut

Good Morning, everyone! What a most glorious day it is here. still hot of course, but beautiful nonetheless. I had the best time yesterday while sitting at my compy watching a baby squirrel that was playing on our front porch rafters. my computer sits on a desk at a window that overlooks our front porch. This little squirrel spent what seemed like hours playing some game of his own making running along the rafters and into the tree that is on the corner. oh how much joy there is to behold if we only take but a moment to look up from whatever we are doing to see it. ;)

Now onto this week's challenge over at Paper Cupcakes - layers. I love to play around with lots of layers, so this was a fun one to do! I grabbed my Basic Grey Lauderdale papers to go with lovely Miss Gigi cooling herself on an innertube. doesn't she look so stylish?! :) The umbrella & sunglasses were both popped up on foam dimensionals for extra layers. The ticket sentiment was layered over a real ticket I saved from a band banquet raffle. my guys have just learned to ignore me when I save things like this, 'cause they know I really will use them in my papercrafting! tee hee! The felt flower ribbon came from a blog candy win, so I do apologize that I don't know the mfg,. but the little accent on the ticket was cut from the strip. a rhinestone flourish adds the necessary bling for our piggy babe, 'cause I think this stylish cutie just deserves it! ;)

Please do play along with all of us in the layers challenge. One winner will receive 2 free images of their choice from Nina's store. Plus as always, there is a free image provided on the blog for you to use if you would like. Paper Cupcakes images are not required to play along though.
