#hashtag Flair + Coupon

Is everyone enjoying their 3 day weekend?  I am!  Much needed rest and time away from everything.  We are enjoying the last few minutes of summer and getting ready to go back to school this week.

I've had some free time these past few weekends and I've been working on a bunch of little projects.  I threw a few layouts together using older Cocoa Daisy and Studio Calico kits.  I played with Gelatos and flair too.
 An older Studio Calico kit that had a lot of the Simple Stories Daily Grind in it.  I had to have this kit because I loved the bright colors and its sat untouched for however long....  I threw this together quickly to use up a chunk of the kit.  The rest got cut up to make cards for Operation Write Home and 3x4 cards for PL.

 I have a bad habit of printing photos out.  I would go through 3-4 times a year and send 200 or more photos to be printed at when they were still open (insert sad face here) so I have stacks of 4x6 prints (sometimes duplicates) of photos I *wanted* to scrap.  I realize now its impossible to scrap every photo and that I've developed into a single photo scrapper.  Unless there are multiple awesome photos from an event or shoot, then I stick to the one photo that speaks to me.  I've slowly weeded out the photos I know I'm not going to scrap and have a very tall stack of photos left.  This was one of them.  I am on a mission to kill as many past kits as possible and as many of these photos as possible before the end of the year.
 This Cocoa Daisy kit was a little scarce in the way of products so I grabbed anything that matched the brown and teal look I was going for and came up with the layout.  Its a good thing I'm slowly moving towards rainbow storage in the craft room because it makes finding things by color easier.

 One more quickie layout.  I tested out my new Gelatos on this one.  I had a Heidi Swapp star thats made from watercolor paper so it absorbs watercolors.  I tested out a technique I saw online and love how it came out.  I need more practice with these awesome crayons but I see them being a new favorite technique to try.

In case you're looking for some {flair}, there is a sale this weekend in the Shop.

You can find the set I used here.  #Hashtag Boy
