Summer Highlights: Layout for THE CUTTING CAFE

Love this foot photo my friends and I took after we got together after work and got a group pedi! My hairdresser Kristen hooked us up! Kristy and Teri both are celebrating their 40th birthdays in 2015 so we thought we should do something fun to celebrate.

The highlight of the page (besides the sexy toes) are of course these little digi stamps from THE CUTTING CAFE called the Elisha Jean and Friends set. Now if hand coloring a printed stamp gives you the heebie jebbies (like me) let me show you a little trick...

Now I have not jumped on the Copic Bandwagon. They scare me. So I dug out my very old & trusty water color pencils and did a very slacker job of coloring in Ruby J. Then, I just grabbed a very light shimmer mist and spritzed! Voila! Wait a bit for it to dry and then fussy cut.

 These I mounted on foam tape to get them off my page a little. Thought they looked really cute against the flamingo paper. I always feel like a flamingo when I'm doing my own pedi...thought it fit!

I think they worked out perfect here to illustrate my friend page!

Hope your Thursday is awesome! We are approaching the weekend thankfully!
