Cutting papers and digital papers

I played with a technique I have wanted to try for awhile.  I followed the great tutorial that Marcy Penner put on her blog. 
 I printed out four different patterns from a digital paper kit. Next I cut the papers following Marcy's tutorial, I just changed the sizes since I was using them on a card and she used a layout.
 I think the result is so much fun and I'll try it again someday.
 Next up, the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab.  My poor friend Cath is still recovering from surgery so the Trigger has been extended and that gave me the time to put a card together for the challenge.
 I purchased a digital kit called Nature Boy from 2 Peas in a Bucket and these flowers were in the kit, they actually come in three different colors. I knew they went with that Trigger pretty well.
 I printed out the buttons separately so I could add them with foam tape. I like to add some dimension when using digital elements on a card. 
And, more beach pics...
 My grandson has long pants on because when he started out the day and his mom dressed him, going to the beach wasn't in the plans and then when we decided to stop for a bit, it was pretty cold out. The not so good part is that he couldn't resist playing with the waves and so ended up pretty wet!
 Capturing his little footprints in the sand is fun.

I just happened to catch my granddaughter jumping for joy at being at the beach and in playing with the waves. This is something she has always loved doing.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
