Always Have To Steal My Hugs

Hi all!  I can't believe June is almost here!  This year has flown by, but especially May has flown by.  Where did it go?  No seriously...where did May go?

Well we just got back from a trip to middle of nowhere, Nebraska.
And I'm glad to be back.  :)

But it won't be long before we are off again.  We just have a really busy summer planned.  What about you guys?  You going on any trips this summer?

So anyways...you want to see a new layout?

This layout uses the super cool Swagger collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  I had a lot of fun with it.

Notes about this layout:

*  I loved the cool design on my background sheet of paper and I enhanced it by adding stitching around some of.  Makes the design pop a lot more.
*  Another piece of paper I love was the cool Chevron piece, with some creative cutting and layering you can really change up the look.  :)
*  Sometimes I add mod podge or glossy accents on top of small letter stickers so I don't end up losing any of the letters...just helps them stay on.
*  Funky rub-on hats are the best.  :)

Here are some close up's of my layout:


And then I also made a card using some of the pieces left from the chevron design that I had cut up.


Well thanks for stopping in today!!!

Have a fantastic day!!

Wow! The effect of the chevron arrows is just amazing! I will have to try that! I will keep hugging my boy forever, it's my right as a mother, I'll inform him about that daily! =)
