Just August Magpie

Hello on a Tuesday.  Its been a hot one here, and as I sit and type this, I'm thrilled to see that it just started raining, so hopefully, it will be a cool night.  Haven't had one of those in some time now.

So, how fun, the August Magpie kits have gone live and are ready for purchase.  The kit has some Hambly, new WeR "travel light" papers, embellies and stickers, really neat postcards, maps and well, lots of really cool stuff for all of those vacation photos.

The big guy and I spent a week in  Las Vegas on our honeymoon and then took a road trip from there to  Sedona, AZ for the second week.   I can't believe that was a little over seven years ago now, and I can't believe it took me that long to get  the perfect paper  to scrap a particular  Sedona photo, but this kit.............yeah.........there was that perfect paper, right in front of me. 

The paper has a cool postage stamp edge and the top has cut out spots, so I wove some other papers and some twine through the cuts.


There was a neat, stamped shipping tag in the kit.  I used a water pen and some blue ink to color in the letters.



And, to keep with the columns printed on the paper, I chopped my photo into thirds (I know, right, seven years to get it scrapped then I cut it up!).  I also cut one of the other tags in the kit to use as a large photo corner.



And here's the end result.



I'll post another layout tomorrow.  For now, I'm going to go just sit and listen to the rain..............
