Claudia and Company Holding Onto Summer

It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. Kiddos started back to school today. Next year my little one will be on that big yellow bus. Snif, snif. I think this summer has got to be the busiest summer I have ever had. I've been trying to do some much neglected cleaning and maintenance stuff around the house, summer is always a busy time at work, and then just wanting to squeeze in a little time for myself to do DT fun stuff. The end of August means my days on the Claudia & Company DT are coming to an end. It has been such an honor to work with such a fabulous team and the images are just so super cute to create with. Thanks to the whole team. I've had a wonderful time. I have a couple more cards that I will show on Monday.

For my cards I used Ella and Sammy Elephant along with a Sugar Stick Girl. You can get these images at Die Cuts R Us. Oh and just to tempt you a little more they are having a copic sale that ends on August go check them out. All three images are colored with copics. I used scraps on my first card and I can't remember what all the papers are. The second card uses Basic Grey and the last one uses K&Company. I have got to say that I really love making the flowers that are on the Pink Ella card. I just free hand cut circle of varying sizes, smoosh them up, attach them together with glue, then finish them off with a brad, button, or other bling.

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

These are all beyond precious! I love all of Lori's images. The sweet Ella will always be a favorite. I have my own pink elephant story ya know :) ... from over 16 years ago. Anyway, your cards are stunning. You are always creating amazing cards using the perfect layouts and colors and papers. I am always amazed and inspired beyond belief when I visit your blog.
Hope things start to slow for you a little bit. Our summer went by fast... but now I am busier than ever with school, dance and so on. sigh. I hope we will get in the groove and I will be able to create more soon. I am going through withdrawals ;)
