Sweet Summer

Hi, everybody!  It's time for Monthly Inspiration over at The Cutting Cafe.   The theme this month is summer.  Regina will be posting all the projects the evening of July 12th.  To make this cute hostess gift watermelon gift bag,  I used the Watermelon Shaped Card Template and Summer Fun.  I cut 2 each of the watermelon top and bottom layers on my cricut and added a little cream colored scallop under the pink.  Even the seeds are a part of the template!
  Then I printed out a sentiment circle from Summer Fun and cut it to one sweet summer piece.  I love this color of grosgrain ribbon and am happy it worked as handles. 
  Over at Paper Issues, the new theme is Life is Sweet.  I think that can be interpreted many different ways, so I hope you'll play along.  This will be my first link up at Paper Issues since becoming a part of the design team!    Hope your life is sweet!  Thanks for stopping by...
