The end of Summer

An soothing layout designed by Julie Bonner.  I can feel relaxing ocean waves.

"This is a close up highlighting some punching & hand-cutting I did to add a little something extra to the page. Punches are a great way to dress up borders and/or to create embellishments that you can layer up. I also loved the design on this Dear Lizzy paper & hand-cut it to create a decorative border strip - love when patterned paper lends itself to this :) 

This is a close-up on a little stamping I did - but guess what . . . it is really just the bottom portion of a Tim Holtz Distress Ink!!! I love how just stamping the bottom portion of this repeatedly creates a fun border on the page :) "Susan
