Summer Love...(and sorry for the break!)

Well, hello again my crafty peeps! Hope you are all doing well out & about in blog land, and I have to admit I am happy to be back. I had to take a short unexpected absence from crafting due to a very bad flare up with my arthritis & fibromyalgia. However, after some steroid shots & steroid pack to take at home (and large doses of pain!), I am on the mend & hope to feel back up to par by next week. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a LO I whipped up before I got sick that, of course, features some yummy Cosmo Cricket products! It is also based on this sketch HERE on the Cosmo Cricket blog & I really like how it turned out. I think the summery colors really go with the theme & mood well. The photos are pretty recent, taken in May at a friend's wedding (it was beautiful & fun!), so of course I had to include some lovely photos of the bride & groom, along with the pic of me & the hubby!

All supplies by Cosmo Cricket (DeLovely & Circa 1932) except:
Journaling Spot - Shabby Chic Crafts
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz
White Cardstock  - CTMH
Adhesives - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by & visit me, and for hanging in there with me while I was out of commission too! I do have several posts planned for the next couple days so make sure to stop back by. One of them is for a new DT I joined...the Paper Issues Creative Team - yippee! I am so honored to be a part of their team & the Lord knows I have enough issues for more than one person. Right now you can link up some Red, White, & Blue Inspiration on the PI site by visiting HERE. And even if you don't want to link up, check out all the amazing ideas & creativity that will definitely get inspired to create! I'll also be back for my CIC, PIO, & YMH DT posts too...gonna be a busy blog weekend! Until then, Happy Craftin'!
