Fabulous Friday with Michelle S

Can you believe it is August 1 already!! School starts here in about 10 days and we are winding down the summer. The weather here in Kentucky has been more like fall lately.  Let's keep this summer feeling rolling along as long as we can and Michelle S is showing you how with this fantastic summer layout.  She used her Cricut machine and the Carousel and Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridges.  Love this layout and will be scraplifting for sure!  Stop by her blog for all the details.  Just a couple more days to do the blog hop and enter the Christmas in July challenge and get a chance for some great prizes and to share your awesome work.
