Jillibeans and Watermelon!

Before we jump into things, I want to give a BIG HUG to Kristine Davidson!  She just re-designed my blog for me and I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you so much for your patience and talent!  So, what do you think?  I am in love the TURTLES she found for me (they are by designer Erin Bradley).  I just love them!!!

Ok, so now onto the regularly scheduled program...
Or not so regular when you look at my recent posting schedule!  LOL!

So about the Jillibean Soup...someone I know who is super sweet and totally awesome recently hooked me up with Jillibean Soup's new mid season release called Watermelon Gazapcho!  As soon as I got it, all I wanted to do was hoard it. I wanted to look at it and touch, but not use it. It was just too gorgeous!  AND...there is something just a little bit new and different about the papers...they are ever so slightly distressed and I am LOVING it!!!  Anyway, I finally broke down and played with them awhile back.  Now, I finally getting around to sharing some of it out here in scrappy land. These papers were perfect to scrap some photos from my trip to Kentucky Lake last summer! So here goes...
I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers to inspire my layout design and had fun playing with some of the Soup die cuts as I layered them on the page. 

The Best Time
Paper, Die Cuts, Stickers, Corrugated Shaper, Letter Stickers: Jillibean Soup

With this layout, I totally had fun playing around a bit.  Heck, I even busted out some acrylic paint and used it!  I so rarely do that, so it was definitely fun to step out and play a bit with this one.
