Hello!! It's time for another Issue at Paper Issues!  I am happy to be contributing to the Anything Goes issue hosted by Lisa Swift. The title of the issue speaks for itself!  You can make what you want with whatever product you want!! Easy, huh?
Here's what I came up with.
I used Elle's Studio Shine papers for the background and the quote bubbles are Elle's Say What paper  and journaling spots from Fancy Pants.  As always I had to add enamel dots to give it some texture and I even splattered some acrylic paint! Every time I look at the picture I crack up.  My windblown hair, my son avoiding the camera, my husband hating the boat ride to the island and my goofball daughter photobombing us!  I think the Elle's paper were perfect for the fun picture!
Now it's your turn to create something for the issue!  Head over to either the Paper Issues Facebook page and share your creations!  We love seeing them!
Also, if you plan on doing some shopping so you can do some scrapping, make sure you use my code below for 20% off your entire order in the PI store!!!

Hello everyone! Today I am posting my first Product Spotlight layout for Paper Issues!  So exciting!  This weeks product is Seven Papers by Studio Calico.  I used the Amelia line and I just love it!  The colors are so fun and bright and they were perfect for this picture of my daughter and her friend at the fair this past summer.  I really let the papers and the picture be the focus of this one.
Head over to the PI Blog to see what some of the other DT members have done with Seven Papers. 
So much inspiration over there!

If you would like to get some of the Seven Papers, head over to the PI store and pick some up and start creating your layouts! Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
