On all of the letters and hearts I used UTEE to make them puffy and glassy, I really LOVE the look, it adds a lot.
Here's a look at that cute little owl, I pop dotted his belly so he looks more 3D.

Ripe avocado CS from PaperTrey Ink
Patterned papers, Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy
Die cut owl and branch, Cosomo Cricket Mr. Campy

Little hearts are a small heart punch from who knows where, I've had it forever :)

You have found your way to the caboose of the ScrapSketch August Blog Hop. I hope you've enjoyed all of the amazing layouts the ScrapSketch gals have created for you! If you haven't been there yet be sure to check out all the CT's blogs (link list at end of post).
Now because of the "oldies" theme I chose an old picture for my layout. This is my little sister and I in 1988, talk about a blast from the past. I couldn't bring myself to use the actual picture and it needed to be cropped and enlarged a little bit so I scanned and reprinted the picture, hence the less than stellar quality. But I feel it goes with the "old" feel I was going for.
