I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! I was a bit lonely - so glad that Ryan, Madisyn and Hudson came home last night. They were missed by Jaxon and me - he was soooo excited to see them! It was precious! I think that is the longest period of time that I've been away from them - that I can remember at least! Glad they are all home safe!
I haven't had a chance to post my layouts for the Two Peas garden that went up on July 1. The theme for this month is 'Fashion Inspired'...which made me very happy! I was checking out jcrew.com and came across some beautiful shirts that inspired me to create some 'petal' shaped ruffles on my layout. I was also inspired by the mustard and hot pink color combination.
Lots of fun ruffle petals, stamping with Dazzle Versamark ink & silver pigment ink, ribbon, swiss embossed cardstock from Bazzill, and a beautiful bird accent that I cut from my Quickutz Silhouette machine (which is on sale here - get one - you'll love it!!!). I was excited to use the new colors, Melon Mambo (dark, hot pink) and Crushed Curry (dark mustard yellow) on this page. I used the new textured cardstocks, dye ink pads and the polka-dot ribbons all from Stampin' Up! These colors are part of the new In Color family - I love them!! So so much! Soft Suede (a light brown) is right up there with these two! Be sure to check out the new Stampin' Up! catalog, new colors, new vinyl decor (definitely decorative catalog) and more by going to my SU! site here. You can click on Shop Now to shop online - so easy! Lots of yummy new products...I'll have some samples up soon - playing with stuff right now and I love it!

Gotta get back to enjoying some time with the kiddos and finishing up some assignments! Have a great Monday!
