A Taste of Summer Blog Hop Day1


Good morning crafty friends,
Welcome to our taste of summer blog hop. Over the next 2 days we will be bringing you some super creations made with all the tasty treats that bring to mind SUMMER!  So grab a nice tall glass of Ice Tea, Lemonade or even around here we call it an Arnold Palmer....50/50 tea and lemonade and enjoy the show!

Here is the Day 1 Lineup.
Be sure to come back here if you get lost along the way!
MelinYOU’RE HERE
Olivia - NEXT

So to get things started, here is what I came up with!

Orange You Sweet Layout

Here’s a view of the entire layout. I thought the title was so cute!

Here is my Second Project
This layout was created using my Pazzles Inspiration and some files I created. I did use an EK Success border punch for the border strip beneath the border of cherries. I love that I can design my whole layout in my Pazzles Inspiration software and then cut....easy peasy :)


Now what would a blog hop be without a little blog candy!
So here it is.
