(You can click to enlarge, but you'll probably see all these photos again anyway, only bigger. Also, I swear everything is straight on the real layout!)
Meet Simple Stories, a newer (or newly reworked, I think) scrap company with sort of an Echo Park vibe. This layout uses their 100 Days of Summer collection, which is sunny and fun and just a little vintage all at once. I love it! It was part of my Scrappy Chic kit for June, and I got a lot of use out of it.
I also got some use out of my Sew-Easy:
Cute, no? I haven't been in the mood to drag out my sewing machine lately, so old-skool hand-stitching is taking its place for awhile. You can also see the nice bit of distressing on the dp here, too.
So, about that cute Simon kitten...here's what he looks like now:
He broke his poor little leg on Monday, had a splint, had surgery (Thursday), had a big 'ol bandage...and now has a nekkid chicken leg (you can barely see it in the photo) and a lovely bonnet to wear. Or e-collar. Or Cone of Shame...whatever floats your boat. He also has to more or less live in a crate for the next month or so. The cone's only until the stitches come out, luckily. Poor baby. He's pretty fine with it all, though -- one easy-going kitty!
Anyway, you can see what we've been up to this holiday weekend -- I hope you're up to something a little more fun!
