{Summer Fun}

I love making simple seasonal décor for my home, especially for this time of year where there’s a big stretch from 4th of July to Halloween with out a holiday. An inexpensive frame can brighten up the mantel or table top your daughter's room after she decides she likes it so much, by adding a photo and a few of your favorite scrapbook papers.
I used 2 patterned papers along with sequins, a flair button and a cut file from the July scrapbook kit.  The best part, this can stay up until the jack-o-lanterns come out in the Fall, then I’ll remove this from the frame and add it to one of our summer scrapbook pages!

I also made this fun little card using more of the teal sequins and another Paper Bakery flair button from the July kit.
Oh, and see the strings tied to the top of the tag? Well, those pretty teal sequins come strung together just like I used them on this card, but for a few of my other projects, I pulled them off the string and used them separately, leaving the teal string. Of course I had to use some of the left over string ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Eeeee! I am LOVING both of these so much, Mary Ann. You have a great style. I don't blame your daughter one bit. I would sneak it off the mantle and put it in my room too, if I could!
