6.9 Sunday Recap

Hello, sweet friends!

Savannah O'Gwynn here to share a quick recap of this week's PS posts, as well as sharing one of my own creations for this month's challenge.

Our new June PHOTO INSPIRATION challenge has started- get inspired by the design, colors, image, or change it and make it another fruit! Use whatever you want in this photo for your starting point. Details for this challenge can be found HERE or you can link up below.
I made some simple pineapple cards using patterned paper scraps. I saw a photo frame with a pineapple like this at the local Old Time Pottery store. I snapped a photo and thought to myself, "I could do that with my PS dies and scrap papers!" These scrap cards are great to welcome new neighbors, give to a friend/family who just bought a new house, or sending just a quick HELLO to anyone!
I used the following PS stamps/dies: Pineapple 2 die
