Now onto the fun and artwork. I had a few minutes in between workshops and decided to use up some of my Hillside Cottage leftovers to create a layout. I went looking for some summery outdoor pictures I have to get scrapped to use this stamp set on. I know this set will work great for my cottage photos but I had none to scrapbook. I did however, have photos from a local event called Ribfest. This is not something I ever knew of before moving to Canada but it is a big BBQ weekend event that rotates through the province (and possibly the country) through the summer with rib and BBQ vendors competing against each other for the best ribs. I personally hate ribs, anything attached to a bone I can not eat but my husband and kids are crazy for them so I suffer in silence, eating a pulled pork sandwich while they all chow down, it is definitely a highlight of the summer for them!

I did not use the stamp set as a border. If you look above the flower cluster on the left page to the left of the title you will see a stamped image saying "summer days" that was from the border saying "sweet summer days". On the right page if you look at the 3 photos that are 3 X 3 you you will see some word bubbles and such, they are small (sorry) in the photo below I have added arrows to highlight where the bubbles I used are. Going left right across in the picture of my daughter chomping on a rib is "good vibes" stamped in Paprika, in the middle towards the upper right corner is "Summer Love" stamped in Blue Belle, and in the lower right corner of the right photo is "fun" stamped in Flamingo.

I have also added the "hello summer" with the sun on a banner/pennant coming off the right edge of the right page. I stamped this in Intense black ink and coloured the sun with the Citrus Blend Tri-Blend marker.

This is a great way to use the sentiments as little accents instead of as a border strip!

There aren't any links to the next blog. Love that you used the individual parts of the stamp instead of the whole boarder.
