Inspired By #37

Although there has been a lot of Back to School type of projects out in blogland, I am not quite ready for that yet ;)  We don't go back until the first week of September, although I am trying to get into the classroom to start prepping for the year, so I am trying to savor every last minute of summer.

I love the bright happy colors in this photo and it has such a summery feel to it.

 So I am wondering how this will inspire you this week?  woodgrain, yellow, lemons, summer drink, colors... can't wait to find out.

I pulled a lot of elements from the photo - embossed woodgrain background, the yellow and blue and some of the gray/brown in the text paper.  I have had this Antique Store pattern paper from Pretty Little Studio for awhile now and decided it was time to dehoard.  The rooster die is from Papertrey Ink and the twine is May Arts.

I can't wait to see what you do this week.
