How do we look ?

Around here , that is ? 
Notice any changes, blogging friends  ? **winks and laughs **

I have a 3D tropical travel themed project to share today - 
this was created for my first Aug blogpost over at Cottage Cutz's blog
One that celebrates quite a few of our
  Carnival and My Little Shoebox  releases together. 

On the exterior of my little travel tote here , 
I have created a little scene  - 
I pieced together the ticket booth  - using an assortment of paper types - 
different colors of glitter paper, 
green glitter and foil paper(for the window pane) , patterned papers 
and white cardstock for the clouds which I also added Stickles . 
The horses I added for fun from the Carousel Silhouette Die .
The clouds I cut from the My Little Shoebox  designed die - Summertime Fun.

My little travel tote folds out to reveal a photo stand , 
which I decorated easily using -
the Boardwalk Carnival Silhouette - using blue glitter and foil paper.
The orange tickets for the word "Fun " were cut using the Ticket Booth die

The airplane here was cut from the Airplane w/Banner & Sign die 
and I've used the banner cut with the same die with the word "Fun" - a pink ribbon it became ! 
The white arrow from that die I layered on top a pink water lily for a fun dimensional embellie .;) 
I've placed the white cloud (cut with the MLSB Summertime Fun die )behind my green airplane . My brown bird on the sun is also cut using the same die.
My green ( legless - all our bird dies have legs actually- too cute ! ) bird 
is from the Laundry Line die . 

As you can tell , I had a tonne of fun using up 
adifferent dies from our July releases .
Truly the possibilities are endless -
 trying out different paper materials to cut with these adorable designs . 

Have fun in the sun wherever you are ! 
I sure am ! 
Complete with a new blog makeover to usher in a new season in my crafting journey ! lol
