Memory Makers Magazine Blog Bounce - VACATION!

Welcome to the July edition of Memory Makers Blog Bounce!

You should have just arrived from Lisa Pace's Blog. If not, you can click on the Memory Maker Magazine link below for a full list of the hop participants and start at the beginning!

Our theme this month is vacation! While David and I have had several really great vacations in the past, this year we've opted to have a staycation! As in we are staying home. There are a few reasons that we are staying home this summer, but the main one is the year just really got away from us before we realized we'd not planned anything. Well, nothing for the summer never knows what just might be in the works for the fall!

I had fun creating this layout. Lots of layering, some zing, and punching! I finally used my cloud punches that my were a gift from a dear friend. She may have just gotten tired of hearing me whine that I couldn't find them any rate, they are awesome!

(The title actually shows up better in person. Can you tell my photos were taken after the sun went down.)
Supplies used:
Cosmo Cricket's line - Salt Air
Bazzill Cardstock
Zing - Apricot, Lemon, Glacier & Powder
Stampin Up! Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon & Trim PomPom
Fiskars Cloud Punches
Stamin Up! Ink - Pool Party
