Destination Nuevo Vallarta - SOUS Sun Diecut Challenge

Hello there!

This week's Stuck On U Sketches challenge was to use a sun diecut on a page. Well, since I just started our vacation album to Mexico, this was a no brainer for me. I chose to use the sun on my title page.

Papers: Fancy Pants, Bazzill Basics, unknown dotted paper; SVG files: Chic Tags, Kerri Bradford, Two Peas In a Bucket; Stamps: Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday, Tinbox for Scraptivity; Embellishments: Fancy Pants buttons & brads; K & Co tag, Crate Paper postcard, Lilybee Design alpha sticker, American Crafts chipboard, Studio Calico wood veneer and mist, Simple Stories stickers, typewriter, unknown bakers twine and clothespin

I started off with making this photo collage from The Lilypad. It was such an easy template to use. Just copy and paste each photo into the template and print. Awesome! Then I cut out the sun diecut Project Life card from Chic Tags. I altered it a bit as the original had the word "sunshine" going down the side of the card. I found this scrap of yellow paper in my scrap pile. I've had it forever, but I liked how it had the speckled look to it that I was trying to achieve with the mist. Cool!

Have you seen the Crate Paper Pier Collection? They have layered stickers in the collection and one of them  looks almost like this one. I love it! My stamping is a bit goofy, but, that's okay. Don't look too closely, okay?


I have been on the look out for a typewriter forever and recently our office moved locations. Stored in the office was a beautiful old typewriter that was destined for the dump. I jumped all over it. I'm pretty sure my co-workers thought I was crazy. LOL! But, I've put it to good use on the geotag. It's going to be hard not to type on every layout, now. hehehe

Be sure to stop by the SOUS blog to see the other beautiful work from the design team. They have outdone themselves, this week. And why not join in the fun by leaving us a link to your sun diecut projects.
Thanks for looking!
