Hello Summer - Apostle Islands June 13, 2016 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Marcia here today. The JustNick Studio design team has been busy creating with the June Clique Kit. This fabulous kit features the Elle's Studio Little Moments collection, Jillibean Soup Healthy Hello, and of course some Clique Kit exclusives ... like these awesome JustNick Studio digital cut files! 

I love adding sun rays on my summer layouts. I couldn't resist using the sunshine icon in a big way on this vacation layout. I pieced some yellow Elle's Studio paper in the negative space that was from the 6x6 paper pad. This is a great way to use those smaller pieces of paper!

Last summer hubby and I escaped to the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior for an extended weekend. The only way to get to the island is by boat ... in our case it was the Madeline Island Ferry. The best part of all was going off grid. Yup no cell phone service except for in the town of La Pointe! No way for our 9 to 5 jobs to call us while we were on vacation!! It was pure bliss.  You are probably wondering what the heck that sign says! The Ojibwa Indian sign on my layout was at the beach. It says "No Life Guard On Duty ... No Diving Or Jumping From Bridge ... Swim At Your Own Risk". The Islands are beautiful and I had so many photos from our trip that I decided to create a couple filmstrips of images. I didn't want my layout to be too busy though so I added the Hello Summer icon in the middle. This worked out well for setting off my title too.

Here are some detailed shots....

I created a second layout using those darling butterflies and my daughter Naomi's fur baby! Princeton is a Corgi and Border Collie mix we think. He was adopted through a local rescue.

Here is a closer look at those awesome butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the new cut files loaded in the JustNick Store.
