I know that summer *officially* arrived on the 21st, but today our summer finally begins! Yesterday was my kids' last day of school for the 2010/2011 school year. Woo-hoo! We are ready for a fun summer. :)
And because it's Thursday, the Stampin' B's DT has a new challenge for you. This week, Joanne is our hostess, and she is challenging us to use a friendship sentiment. Done!
I was going for a freshly-laundered-linens-hanging-on-a-clothesline kind of feel here--you know, summery and clean and simple. My friendship sentiment is all summer-fresh, too: "Plant seeds of kindness and your garden of friends will grow!" Cute, right? The flowers were reverse-masked using the negatives left from a SU Boho Blossoms punch.
I'm playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #20 to use reverse masking (along with at least one PTI product, of course!). I'm also playing along with Clear It Out Tuesday's clean and simple challenge.
Well, thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss for today. If you'd like to try your hand at this week's Stampin' B's Challenge, post your project on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)
See you soon!
