Be Yourself!

Hello and a Happy Monday to you!  A start of another week of summer for us!  And after several weeks of cooler weather it's finally warming up, happy to have summer back!  Which is good as we only have three and a half weeks of summer left!  We shall be making the most of it!  The kids and I just came back from a weekend at a bible camp with my parents, it was fun but I don't love cabin life, I like it...

Today I am playing along with CASual Fridays Challenge of buttons!  I love buttons but find myself not using them very much. I was happy about the challenge as now I could use them! I used a new stamp set by Hero Arts new Stamp Your Story catalog, My Favorite, I had to get this set because I loved the feather!  I am also using new inks the Mint Julep and Fresh Peach by hero Arts along with Wet Cement.  These are my favorite colors this season!  I've been buying clothes in them and even getting my pedicure done in mint! 



Do you like my photo props?  It's a skirt and two shirts of mine!  (My favorites!) 



What am I inspired by?  I am inspired by the colors that Vicki used in this layout and card here. 

I stamped the feather from the set My Favorite over and over.  I embossed in white the panel onto actually some pink Hero Arts layering paper that I thought was a close match, I also embossed in white the be yourself.  I like that statement!  It's one I've always held true, to be myself even from an early age!  The buttons are papertrey ink, making memories and an other!

Quite excited for tonight!  Taking Ariel to her first musical!  We are going to see Mary Poppins at Rainbow Stage!  It's an outdoor theater but with a domed roof.  I can't wait to see what she thinks!  Hoping to be able to craft more this week and blog!  See you soon!
