Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- July: Life Is Wonderful

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Nikka Geers, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1507 Life is Wonderful (pictured below).  This set is only available until July 31st and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

 For today's layout, I used another sketch I found on Pinterest.  I've been loving sketches lately -- now that Summer is here, I don't have as much time in my studio, and sketches help me get layouts done on my shortened time frame.

I plan to add pictures to my layout from my cousin's recent baby shower.  Her husband came and took lots of photos so I'm waiting for him to share them before deciding which ones to print. I knew I wanted the focus to be on the pictures so I kept the embellishments simple and followed the sketch closely.

Supplies used:
*Life is Wonderful stamp set -- July SOTM
*Shower Flowers stamp set
*Blossom paper packet
*White Daisy cardstock
*Glacier cardstock
*Lagoon Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Smoothie Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Sunset Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Teal shimmer trim
*Oceanside sequins
*Buttons from my stash
