I've been busy creating my monthly SNL kit. And . . . seeing that it is July . . . there's always the Christmas in July festivities over at DSP. I made a bow (always good to practice those!) and a background paper for that as well. I've also been working on another kit of my own. I found a color palette that I really like . . .
Isn't it pretty?? It definitely has a very bright and summery feel to it and inspires me to create something in bloom!
Speaking of blooms . . . there's lots of things going on in my garden as well.
The mini sunflowers are ready to bloom . . .
and the bee balm and coneflowers are just bursting with color . . .
and even more White Swan coneflowers in another part of the garden are looking great too!
I'm off for now and looking to possibly finish the kit that I am working on . . .
It's been a long day here as we went to the Cubs game today and were sitting in the hot sun all afternoon. The Cubbies did horrible (they lost 12-0) but it was a lot of fun going to the park, taking in the atmosphere, and because this was my younger son's first Cub game . . . it was memorable anyway.
With that being said . . . I need to call it a day, but first I promised to announce the winner of my giveaway. There were only 3 contenders so I put them in a bowl . . .
and I asked my little guy to pick one and open it up . . .
And the winner is . . .
