ANOTHER JULIE NUTTING DOLL AND ANOTHER LAYOUT GOING BACK TO THE BARN!

 Hi everyone!  Greetings from humid stormy Delaware.  That thunder last night sounded like the world could be coming to an end.  It even set off some car alarms in the parking lot of my complex.  It's still humid today but at least no storming...yet...

I had fun creating a tag with one of Julie Nutting's Decade Dolls - Jill - our gal from the 1960's.  It was for a challenge over on Addicted 2 Paper Dolls Facebook Group.  The problem is I mistakenly shared it openly when it was for a later reveal...so I can share that one with you now...and let you know that in about 2 weeks you will get to see the one that I actually ended up entering.

Here is the challenge - 

Create a Julie Nutting or C-thru the Woods Boy or Girl Doll tag, card, canvas or project of an activity that you like to do based around a Summertime Song.


Here is my first one which I can't enter...


and a few close-ups-
check out those white patent go-go boots!

and the title of my summer song!

The next doll I did will be shared with you in a week or so...so keep your eyes open!

Next I have a layout from a few of the photos from my trip to Rivercrest Farm for that fabulous fun Barn crop with Robin's Scrap Nest

I chose this sketch from 
Let's Get Sketchy July week #1.

And here is my layout - 


with some fun close ups-


These boots were part of the base paper but I needed to add that other strip for the design so I fussy-cut around the tops of the boots and slip the strip under!

This fun little hat was on a different ribbon but was given to those of us lucky enough to be attending the crop by our fabulous hostess Robin Adair Lawrence Immel!

This little bird was from Robin also!

and this sticker was from my Carta Bella Giddy Up Boy collection and I thought it was just perfect for this picture of all of us attending the crop!

I hope you have enjoyed these creations.  I expect to be back tomorrow with more!  

I really love knowing you were here and to know what you thought so please do leave me a comment!

BUILDING SANDCASTLES!

I have another fun layout to share with you today from one of our beach trips back in 1996.  This is my sample page for challenge UUS20 that I am hosting over at Soul Scrappers.  It is for using up our scraps - and this month we are using diecuts.  I was so excited to get to use these particular diecuts as I received them in a swap I participated in at a Yahoo Group that I was in called KroppinKids.  

Here is the layout - 



and here is a close-up of the super cute diecuts - 


and some other fun close-ups 

 
this cute little guy is now 22!  It's my eldest son Robert...

Here we are relaxing when Robert tells us it's time to build a sand castle.

and HERE is our castle!

And, the papers are also from the fun Echo Park collection "SPLASH"!


I hope that you have enjoyed this blast from the past and will pull out some diecuts of your own and join in my challenge.
