Loving summer!

I haven't been doing a whole lot of creating this week (lots of reasons...) but I have been fluffing around on the computer a bit at night! Over at Digital Doodling there's a fun challenge to try out some fake magazine covers and share the result. Everyone who shares their creation can join the giveaway ~ see my sidebar for details of the prize :)

This is mine:

Create Fake Magazine Covers with your own picture at MagMyPic.com

I also took a look around at the The Pink Elephant blog hop and was inspired to join in the challenge, which is to re-visit a favourite challenge from 2009. I chose Challenge #28 (Summer) because I have a heap of new summer photos to get scrapping with.

I used a current sketch from the Stash Stomper at Scrap Boutique, designed by the fabulous Em Straface.

Here's my layout:

# Diecuts R Us ~ Challenge 25 ~ Love
# Humble Pie ~ Love
# Simon Says ~ Love
# Stamp Something ~ Love Somethings
# By the Cute and Girly ~ February challenge ~ Love
# Stamp with Fun ~ Challenge 45 ~ Hearts
# Fussy and Fancy ~ Challenge 2 ~ Hearts

I don't own any heart stamps (how sad is that?) but I thought the little Grant Archival butterfly stamp fit in very nicely with the handcut paper hearts.
