Summer Picnic for Friday Mashup

Another week over but that just means it's time for another Friday Mashup challenge! This week Breelin wants us to make a project using "sunshine" and also "summer picnic". I'm an oddball out because I'm not a fan of sunshine and I get REALLY grumpy if we have too many days of sun. I prefer clouds and rain in the summer and lots of snow and clouds in the winter. My friends like to tell me I have the opposite version of SAD :)

Do you do any monthly kit programs, like Paper Pumpkin or Simon Says Stamp? I did the PP for a while and am now getting SSS monthly kits and let me tell you, I am HORRIBLE at using my stuff. Every single PP I have, over a years worth? I think I've only opened one, they are all sitting in a box in my craft area. Same goes for the SSS kits, I've been getting those since November 2014 and guess what I haven't touched? I know, bad bad bad. I decided to break out of this ignoring the kit pattern and used the SSS June 2015 kit, which was full of bright colors and plenty of sun and picnic themed items!

My card base is SSS White and I used Doodlebug Sunkissed papers from the kit to cover the entire card base. To make my squares I took 2 images that were on one of the papers and cut them to represent my picnic portion, ice cream! Who doesn't love a nice ice cream when out on a picnic? For the other 2 squares I used papers that represented sunshine to me....bright green with a grass pattern and a fun yellow dotted paper. I added a smiling sun to the green pattern paper and the smile die cut on the yellow pattern paper. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment and adhered it below the squares. 

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then link up your own sunny summer picnic project!
