{hello you, again}

Hi friends! Today I have 2 projects to share made with “Hello You”, the August scrapbook kit from the Paper Bakery.  First up, a layout using this weeks sketch.
I used some of the elements from the sketch like the circles, photo placement on the right and the paper strips.
I also added the fun library card, flair button and the sequins to make it my own.
Next is this cute sign I made for a baby shower. The colors for the shower were oranges and pinks, so this paper from Pretty Little Studio in this months kit was perfect to use, along with more of my favorite…sequins! I made 8 signs just like this, each for a different food or drink area.
The sequin hearts were quick and easy to put together, but added such color and sparkle!! 
I cut the words with my Silhouette, then added everything to the patterned paper, and slipped it into the frame. I'm loving these Ikea frames!

Well, this is the last week before school starts and we still have a few things to check off the bucket list ;)  It's has been such a great summer, does it really have to end?

As always, thanks for stopping by!
