Summer of Color: Final Week Already...#6

It's safe to say that we all love Kristin's Summer of Color...and 
this one went really fast!
The color combination in this final week is Sage & Sepia:


Vintage comes to mind right away... and then botanical...
which made me want to use my poppy pod photo
and newly carved botanical leaf pattern stamp.


~Delight in Summer!~


 "Hot fun in the summertime!"

Remembering that nothing's perfect,
I seek to embrace my itchy bug bites with glorious sunshine,
muggy humidity with the ice cream evenings...
because 
 L.O.V.E  summertime.

Thank you, Kristin! Your summer party was INCREDIBLE
and so are YOU!
