Love you, Sunshine!

Happy Friday, friends!  Missy here.  Today I'm sharing my latest layout created for yesterday's Throwback Thursday challenge.  The challenge is to use papers and embellishments at least two years old and to use at least three pieces of wood veneer from your stash.  I have quite the collection of summer lines from Echo Park, and this layout incorporates at least three of of them dates back to 2010!  You can still find some of Summer Bliss and parts of A Perfect Summer in the store.  They all work so nicely together, and I'm a sucker for really bright colors, so they were perfect for this fun pool picture of my little stinker :)

I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and Tim Holtz distress ink to create those circles on the background and then used some yellow acrylic paint for accents behind my photo cluster and on the right hand side strip.  The rest is paper layers, stickers, thread and washi tape.  I added the SHINE wood veneer after I used gelatos to color it.  I also used them to color the smaller wooden hearts.

I used pop dots under this...I love the dimension it gives!  I can't seem to complete a layout these days without adding tangled thread and machine's so addictive :)

I love tearing my papers...I like that it gives an uneven and messy look yet still neat and organized.  Those cute loopy die cuts are from The Cut Shoppe.  I love the white on white look.

One last close up of the white space...this added touch of hearts and messy thread finished it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We'd love to have you join us on our forums and in our challenges...lots of fun being had with some really awesome scrappers!

Have a great weekend!

Missy :)


  1. I love the way you use color and dimension in your work.

  2. Great layout Missy!!! Do you use a stamp for the rings (like a coffee cup ring one or something)? Love!

  3. This is absolutely awesome!! Just goes to show that our paper really never goes out of style, as long as WE stay current. You did such a SUPER job on this. Love every detail!!! :o)
