Summer Blog Hop with MOXXIE - PRIZE available too!


Welcome the the Summer time fun Moxxie blog hop!

Summer to me is all about great weather and relaxing fun. Living in California means sunshine and beaches. This fun, relaxed line from MOXXIE features beautiful colors. Beach Bum with great die cuts.

Surfer Boy- my son has grown his hair out for a "surfer" look. He's got those beautiful golden locks too.
I'm all about adding that little extra something to a page- an unusual technique, recycled embellishment or just a mix of products. So this page is actually different for me. It uses ONLY the MOXXIE beach line and my photos. With great colors and papers like this, it just doesn't need anything more!

Kitty Kitty

Previously I made a page for my cousin Alicia using MOXXIE's Paws & Claws line. The line features cats & dogs and yet I made it neutral. I wanted to try it again, but this time using the cat theme. I used another pic of my cousin Alicia for her graduation album. This pic came from her Facebook page (love that kids post stuff for us to use now a days).
This playful pic of her with kitty whiskers and nose just begged for the Claws & Paws line.
Look how great the rub-on of the kitty is (these are high quality rub-ons unlike SOME that bite).
And for a little fun touch, I had to add a cat scratch. To create, I cut with an Exacto Knife then just wiggled and wiggled the knife in the cut to rough it up and give it distressed definition. 
If you want to buy this line, I found it for sale at

Sweet Ride

The 4th of July makes me think of hometown Americana and family Bar-B-Ques. Here is my family (my mother-in-law with my niece and nephew) being down-home American.

I used MOXXIE Down on the Farm line. The title "Sweet Ride" makes me laugh. I just cut out one of the journal cards that could also fit nicely into a pocket page, but also works perfectly for accents. That green tractor paper might very well have been made for this photo, don't you think? I'm in love with the depth of brown color that I used for the background. I added a touch of texture with burlap and wood buttons to bring out the rust of the trailer. The bold pop of red is thick chipboard and adds a playful touch. 

So here is wishing you a down-home 4th of July filled with lots of warmth and fun.
