My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Page

Yesterday on the My Mind's Eye blog, the designers shared pages with a "Summer Fun" theme.

I came outside one afternoon to find my two oldest dressed in full on "battle gear" having the wackiest water fight I have ever seen. Owen was dressed in his Narnia Knight Halloween Costume top with his swimsuit on the bottom. Jensyn had strapped every water inflatable she could find (and a few crocs) to herself as "protection" and they were running around the yard yelping and having a water war.

I bust out laughing and had to grab my camera right away. LOOOOVE those kids! They are so creative! :D

Here is the page I created with the NEW Alphabet Soup - Boy Collection.

I created the water waves using the woodgrain pattern on the Zoofari Paper. The blue letters in the title are My Mind's Eye Lush Blue Flocked Chipboard Alphabet Stickers. The word "Wacky" was cut using my Slice and the FaLaLa design card.

I used the Fall/Back to School and Remember This design cards to cut the sun and clouds with my Slice.

Have a great weekend!

  9. Wow...AMAZING! There is sooo much to love on this page.

  10. I love this layout! I have a quick question... did you use your Slice for all the dark matting behind the sun, clouds, words, ect? It really makes it pop!

  11. Thanks, Vicki! :D For the dark matting on the items I cut with my Slice, the cards I used didn't have the MS+ feature, so I actually glued them to dark brown cardstock and cut them out by hand. :) I know it sounds tedious, but I actually enjoy the fussy-cutting. Hehehehe!

    My favorite pair of scissors for fussy cutting are the EK Success Precision Snips. Here's a link if your interested. Best $6 I've spent in a LONG time. :D

    Have fun!
