Peachy Keen Stamps - Guest Designer Day 2

Happy Tuesday!  I have another "peachy" project to share with you today!  Yesterday I showed you a spring themed layout and today I have a summer project for you!  I hemmed and hawed over whether or not I needed to add more images to this layout, but in the end I left it alone.  

The minute that I saw these stamps, I knew that wanted little ants to carry Peachy Keen Stamps' Faceless Fruit away from a picnic.  Instead of coloring each piece of fruit, I decided to paper piece each piece.  If you haven't tried out this technique before, I highly recommend this great tutorial on the Market Street Stamps blog!  I have to admit that I am not very speedy when it comes to paper piecing - that's just another reason that I didn't end up adding anything else to the layout.  I wanted to make sure that the fruit got all the attention!
I am going to add my journaling to the picnic basket.  That should be nerve-wracking....I always like me handwriting - until I add it to my layouts.  I try to remind myself that one day Nicole will appreciate my actual handwriting, so it doesn't really matter whether or not it's perfect!  Right?

Don't forget that this week's giveaway from Peachy Keen Stamps is the Happy Lashes Face Assortment set!
