A Layout using mostly the Imagine

Today is Wednesday
Whimsical Wednesday that is.
Today is my last post as a Layout DT member of WW as my 3 month term has come to an end.
and the challenge is summer and stamping...

I created this layout using mostly the Imagine Enjoy the Seasons cartridge.  I am entering this LO on the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge (stamping and summer treats).
I think this is the only picture of my Mom at the beach. I believe she was 19? and the picture was taken in Acapulco with a friend?... she is not here to ask her...
 Above you can see how I hand stitched on the trees.  The Imagine design already had this little dots that I used as my guide to poke little holes before stitching with DMC floss.  I brought the stitching all the way into the picture.
 Above I did the same with the stitching following the Imagine Enjoy The Season's cartridges design bringing my stitching into the picture...
 The sun was cut using Cricut Disney Mickey and Friends.  I cut the layers, inked and painted with Smooch paints to give it that glimmery look.
 Here is the sun again 3 dimensional..
 Above you can see my Fiskars Vacation stamp using Memento gray ink.  You can also see the Popsicle cut using Cricut Doodlecharms, my Mom's favorite summer treat.  I also used Smooch paint to give it the glimmery look.  The tag was cut from a paper I first printed on the Imagine using Enjoy the Seasons.
I wrote with a gelly pen on the tag.  I also used fabric that I crinkled with the sewing machine, buttons and more DMC floss.

Oh, my MOM is the one to the left!  I usually have a hard time scrapbooking my MOM, but this time was actually fun!
...update -I am also entering this LO in Getting Scrappy with Amanda and Melissa
