I haven't glued down the sayings yet in case I use this for a picture of both Kaitlyn and Austin. I also have not glued down the stars yet that way if I want to adhere them to the corner of the pictures, I can. No check out the "ribbon" we used. It's actually muslin fabric cut into strips. That was a fun trick/technique they told us. She said when you are at the fabric store, go to the clearance area and find cool material that is cheap and just cut it into strips. The strip of muslin on the right side is just weaved through holes that were already cut in the page. It looks like they might have used the Zutter Bind It All to make the holes.
This was a fun and very easy LO to make.

Just some of the embellishments I got. Queen & Co. had a booth there and sold almost everything for $1 - so I couldn't resist!

Something really cool that Ashly told me was that you can use the Quickie Glue Pen to write or draw then cover with flock. So easy! I practiced by writing my name. How fun to make swirls or trace a fun template design then flock.

Another LO I did on my scrap retreat. Austin dressed up like a cowboy for Land Run day at school. We are so not cowboy/country people but he looked awful cute dressed up like one. These boots were given to us by a very good friend of mine once her son grew out of them. Otherwise, we would never have had boots for him to wear. I cut the YeeHaw out using a Cricut cartridge but I don't remember the name
of it. The wanted poster and logs on the opposite page were a die cut that I inked and backed with some dark paper so the notches and words would stand out. This is another LO that I actually wrote a little on also. Yeah me!!

Oh yeah, as a side note - I did specify that this was his "back up" blankey. This is one he uses when we can't find his regular blankey. : }
The other thing I did on this LO that I wanted to point out was that I used an exacto knife and cut around the design so it would go on top of the picture. I cut around the circle with the star at top and the 3, 1 and 2 at the bottom. That way you use the paper as an embellishment.
I'm am sooooo excited about this pool. I LOVE being in the water and in the summer sun. This is really a dream come true for me. : )
