Well, it's back-to-work time for me -- classes start tomorrow (I teach English at a community college). I can't believe summer's over, but I must say that it was a good one! Eventful enough to be memorable, but not so eventful that I felt busy all the time. Good stuff.
One thing I definitely got was plenty of quality cat time. One day, I was hanging out with Dex, and when I went to take a few self-portraits of the two of us, I ended up with this awesome lens flare...so I had to scrap it, of course!
I know you can edit photos to add an "artsy" lens flare, but it makes me happy that this one just occurred all on its own. I used some bits and bobs left over from another project here -- randomly-cut scraps of papers from Pretty Little Studio, a company that's new to Scrappy Chic. Their paper lines are 8x8, which is pretty unique, and they also make lots of cute tags and other paper accents -- like that train ticket on the layout.
To enhance the sunny photo, I used a canvas bloomer from Basic Grey, misted with the same yellow that's on the cardstock background, and enhanced with some little dewdrop/page pebble thingies. The nice long title is Amy Tangerine (sigh...love), and I stitched a bunch, both across the title stickers and around the photo.
Simple, easy, bright and fun. I sure hope my semester goes that way, too! Have a lovely day.
