Morning View Mosaic

Sunday evening here in Minnesota, the storms are rolling in after a very warm and humid day. This was the first time all Summer that my favorite guy and I got to spend the entire day at home, just relaxing, went swimming, took a little boat ride, stayed cool all day .... very enjoyable. I even had a chance to put a challenge page together for both Lasting Memories and Sassy Lil' Sketches.

Journaling reads:
Gratitude List: Morning Coffee. 4th of July. Peaceful Sunrise. Family and Friends.
Counting my Blessings. Beautiful View.

The challenge at Lasting Memories is to create a Mosaic.
I cut the photo focal point in a 2x2 square, mounted it onto cardstock and popped it up to make it stand out a little more. I've seen the mosiac technique demostrated at craft shows but this is the first time I've actually used one. It was easy! I'll be doing more of these in the future!
Journal tag tucked into pocket.
Here's theJuly 7th Sassy Lil' Sketch the started everything rollin' for me today:
 Love this sketch because the circle adds more interest to a single photo layout.

Supplies Used:
Papers by Close To My Heart: Colonial White, Sweet Leaf, Wings Level 2
Stamps Sets: E1020 Token Alpha, B1366 Live Life
Ink: Archivial Black, Juniper (CTMH)

Well, back to the office tomorrow but not until after I enjoy the view and my morning coffee!
